When I was 5, I thought lemonade stands were too cliché. I decided to pick gravel rocks out of the driveway and sell them for a nickel apiece. That started my love for entrepreneurship! When I was a teenager, I started a pet-sitting business and a horse-riding business, and then moved into launching a specialized nanny agency at the age of 25. Within 5 years, I was managing a staff of 50 and business had grown substantially. The part I really loved wasn't so much the particular industry, it was the challenge of making the business successful. So over the next several years I focused on coaching small businesses and nonprofits and continuing to learn how to take a small business and make it thrive. 
Whatever your next big idea is, I can't wait to be a part of helping to shape it into a reality!

"What will it take to make that happen?" My dad posed this question to me after I, a dreamy-eyed highschooler, told him I wanted to be a professional basketball player. Clearly, upon doing some basic research, I realized I didn't have the height (nor talent) to back my passion for the game. So, I pursued another passion: design and visual communication. On paper, that means I've interned for an ad agency, done exhibit design for two museums, worked in marketing for a small business, and helped a non-profit with their annual reports, events, and fundraiser design needs.

In real life, it means I've done everything from chalking a logo on a wall to holding a dinosaur skull during an overnight exhibit install. While I never got to be that professional basketball player, I got even more. I am someone who understands dreaming big, stepping back to see the reality, adjusting and making the most of every opportunity, getting to meet some fantastic and talented people, and the necessity of passion in creative work. I can't wait to partner with you to do all I can to help make your dreams happen.

Ask me to tell you about myself and I'll probably say something along the lines of "umm, I don't know? I'm a designer and I love spending time outside?" But ask me more specific questions and I probably won't stop talking until you tell me to stop. 
So here are a few of my answers to questions you may or may not be asking:
––
I've been doing digital design ever since I taught myself how to use Photoshop in high school, after which I got two degrees in graphic design (bachelors and masters).
––
Mint chocolate chip.
––
I enjoy spending time outside and tend to get great creative inspiration when I'm interacting with nature.
––
Yes, I AM looking forward to working with you on creating the most impactful and beneficial visual representation for your business.

I hope this helps you get to know me just a little bit more, and I'm excited to get to know you soon, too!

I am someone that likes action. I like to get things done and be around people who want to make decisions and get after it. I love small business and being able to have an impact on not only someone's business, but their life. As a former business owner, I know that what small business needs the most is action oriented, honest and passionate partners.

Being a business owner teaches you lots of lessons, and I have learned many of them over the years.  As a seasoned marketer with a true entrepreneurial spirit, I have had a very diverse career. I have worked in several industries including entertainment and film, banking and finance, and the ever changing market of luxury and high end retail. I have found my passion in helping small businesses reach their full potential, and I love putting all the pieces together to establish a solid business plan and foundation.

I have a data driven mindset and believe the devil is always in the details. I specialize in social media content and management, company messaging and crafting unique and client-facing brands. As we always say in luxury—it's free to dream. Putting those dreams into action and making them a reality is the fun part.

Ever since I was a child, one of my favorite things to do was talk. You could definitely say I’m the type of person who’s never met a stranger. That being said, I’ve been a social person my whole life, so you can imagine how much I love social media. Along with interacting with people, I love art and design. As a graphic designer with a focus in branding and social media, I love experimenting with the best ways to present people and their ideas through social media. With a strong desire to create and communicate, my goal is to help bring your creative ideas to life via the internet. Let’s chat soon!
