I am a marketing strategist ready to help your business succeed. But just like you are much more than your business, I'm much more than a freelancer.
I grew up in St. Louis, so I naturally have an affinity for toasted ravioli and square cut pizza. My husband, John, and I currently live in a 1930's home in South City and are parents to two rescue Australian Shepherds, Benny + Boo. I love design; I am inspired by interior spaces, architecture, fashion and art of all kinds. I love plants, but I can't keep a real one alive to save my life. I love the feeling of triumph when I’ve overcome an obstacle or reached a new goal, from running my first half marathon to coding my first website.
In my professional career, I've defined communications strategies, built and rebuilt brands, executed inbound marketing plans, launched a multi-million dollar fundraising campaign and more for organizations I still support today. I’m ready to support local communities and take my experiences to the small business level.
