Experience is The best teacher.
I got my start over twenty years ago, transitioning my creative talent into the emerging industry of the Internet. I was blessed early on with mentors who forever changed my understanding of how design and marketing are intrinsically linked and who ignited my passion for developing ideas and businesses. My time in the trenches, working my way up the ladder is why I'm vocal in my belief that there is no substitute for experience. School is theory; it will never replace the real-world competition needed for success in both life and business.
Over the past two decades, I've worked with more than twenty-five companies in over nine industries, architecting marketing strategies and product launches, branding and messaging, pivot strategies, and multiple funding rounds.
Today, I co-chair two nonprofits, mentor startups in the agriculture and engineering space, and redefine patient engagement at Smart Clinic.
I'm a firm believer in giving back and building up the next generation - without that very gift from my mentors; I wouldn't be where I am today. I strive to provide entrepreneurs, established businesses, and nonprofits with as much value as possible by freely answering questions about marketing, branding, social media, funding, and entrepreneurship.
