Thanks for connecting with me here!

My passion is connecting... people to people, people to their dreams, brands to businesses, and creative spirits to their talents. The pandemic and subsequent world issues brought massive changes to our lives on so many different levels. Some of these changes came bearing gifts. 

Seizing an opportunity born of adversity in 2020, I reimagined my career path and followed my dream of helping others as a Creativity Coach as well as translating my years of experience working for others into freelance marketing and consulting. I love helping small businesses and artists grow by discovering and developing their authentic potential. 

Working with my first coach back in 2001 opened the door to a whole new world for me and I’ve been using these techniques in all of my creative endeavors and relationships since.

I hope to work with you soon!
