    I’m a Serial Entrepreneur, a Connector, as well as a Start-Up Enthusiast. My mind goes 100 mph and I have to understand the “why” and “how” behind everything. If you give me an idea, I want to make it better. If you challenge me, I’ll accept it. I love helping and seeing other small businesses grow and I love surrounding myself with people who inspire me, aren’t afraid of risks and live outside of the box. God is first in my life and I am nothing without Him. I have the most amazing boys, family and friends and I embrace my clumsiness, my inappropriate timed laughing and my many other quirks. I’m pretty ok being perfectly imperfect!

    I help businesses understand the tremendous potential that the digital frontier offers, then I help develop a strategy and game plan, then we make it happen together. I'll help you wipe out the time constraint and the issue of content (no more, "what should I say to position my brand and grow?") I've been passionately engaged in the world of digital marketing for the past 10+ years, learning from the best of the best, networking and applying my knowledge. I absolutely love what I do and believe (from experience) that any entrepreneur, small business owner or sales professional can revolutionize their business by taking their social media and digital marketing to the next level.
