about
ME

about
YOU

With an education in business administration and marketing, I began my career as a marketing director for a community NPO and then an estate planning marketing company in WA before moving to California. Seeking a new challenge, I started and operated my own wedding floral design business for over 16 years and have worked in the wedding and event industry for over 23 years. Motivated by helping business owners see the possibilities for growth, creating, implementing a plan, and seeing results - my passion. By nature, I am a builder, designer, creator, and problem solver. Adaptation and innovation are my comfort zone.

During COVID, I enrolled in a class at Yale University - The Science of Wellness. Recognizing the toll that entrepreneurial endeavors take on business owners. I continue to expand my base of knowledge to share with those I work with. 

 

Privately, I photograph beauty, travel, write, and garden - fully partaking of life on the Central Coast of California. Yoga is my grounding, stargazing is my inspiration, and the beach is my solace. 

You are motivated by what can be. You have a vision and passion for where you want to take your business. Though your goal is solid, you need expertise to help you deliver your service or product to the marketplace and to get noticed. While striving to be excellent, you may require marketing expertise, including strategies, tools, and collateral to launch a new project, set up and direct a digital marketing effort, manage your social media, build a website, or design marketing collateral - getting your message to the right people.

Your time is premium and you focus on the operational aspects of your small business and are not currently at the level of hiring an in-house marketing director. You value the knowledge and know-how of someone who has vast real-business experience and is motivated to grow your brand with you.

 

You love what you do and care about doing it well. You are ready to build your business from the ground up or are excited to take your business efforts to the next level.
