Mallie Rust // Students Want Authenticity Over Ads on Social Media


What if something as simple as a tweet could help you make your next career move – while you’re still in college? My guest this week can tell you firsthand what that experience is like. Mallie Rust is my content and marketing coordinator, a freelance editor, TexasMedia student, and even an amateur ballroom dancer. As a college senior Mallie shares her experience growing up on social media, how campuses can best use social to connect with current and future students and explains why she’s so passionate about the Oxford comma.

Leading With Hard Work and Heart Work with Shea Kidd Brown

It is so difficult to be mindful online these days. The apps and algorithms are just not designed to keep us in the present. And with so much curation necessary to create our idea of a “perfect profile,”  how can we make sure we are showing up in our digital accounts and profiles in a heartful way?

My guest today has mastered the art and science of being her whole self online. Whether she is weaving the values her grandmother taught her into presentations or sharing the intimacies of her adoption journey on social media, Dr. Shea Kidd Brown consistently stays true to her commitment to sharing both her personal and professional journeys openly and genuinely.

Shea has enjoyed a long career in college administration at a number of institutions of higher education in the southeastern region and now serves as the Vice President for Campus Life at Wake Forest University. 

In this episode, Shea discusses her perspective on storytelling, congruency and the importance of bringing humanity into digital spaces. We’ll also dive into how balancing personal and professional narratives is essential for creating an impactful online presence and how Shea uses these platforms to create active, mindful connections for her campus community.
