I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
Social media has its ups and downs, but at least we still have Instagram to brighten our days a bit, right?
My IG preferences fall into three main categories: pretty pictures, educational content, humor. Happily, there are tons of local-area accounts that satisfy those requirements.
Here are five I’m obsessed with right now.
According to some, I post too many photos of my dog on social media. The people who complain about this are, as the children say, haters. I say: the more dog pics, the better, and Hella Dog Moms fits the bill.
You know what? On second thought, do not follow this account. If you do, you’ll be compelled to buy everything at this Clovis store and your bank account may never recover.
Did you know that the “Ooooby” in Ooooby Fresno (the CSA that delivers fresh, local produce) stands for “Out Of Our Own Back Yards”? I didn’t! Not until I saw it on Insta. If you need a reminder to eat fruits and veggies, this account is it.
As everyone here likes to say, Yosemite is basically in our backyard. Normally a source for pretty and/or educational pictures of the park and its wildlife, the account has been useful this summer for Ferguson Fire updates. Here’s hoping it can return to fire-free content again soon.
