I'm so glad you're here.
I'm excited to get to know you better, but I guess I'll share a little about me first...
I've been an artist, a writer, and an athlete my entire life. Everything I did was focused on sports and achieving high grades. I used to tell people I could do anything in life except sales, but my best-kept secrets were my stash of poems and the hours I spent writing songs. Honestly, most people probably didn't know I was creative.
While my friends studied fancy subjects and got fancy-sounding jobs after graduating, I surprised everyone by studying design and getting a job as an admissions counselor.
These were the two best decisions I ever made.
My life as an artist, designer, and writer was expanded, supported, and nurtured in college more than I ever thought possible.
Working in admissions for a private university taught me:
- team work
- goal setting
- project management
- managing people
- conflict resolution
- public relations
- public speaking
Eventually I finished my MBA and became an assistant director of admissions and a director of marketing & communications.
This is where I learned:
- fund raising
- managing budgets
- navigating/designing organizational culture
- more about managing people
- building relationships
- strategic planning
(There aren't enough bullet points in the world to share what I've now learned from entrepreneurship. You can go check out my articles for that. ;)
My former supervisors and coworkers are incredible people, and they helped me become the person I am today. I'd even argue they helped me become the person I'm made to be.
For that, I am forever grateful.
Now I pay it forward by helping other people and organizations thrive by becoming more of who they were made to be. I focus my design business on marketing and communications strategy, and I help other creatives master business, marketing, sales, and productivity.

Now I'd love to learn more about you! What brought you here? How can I help you?
