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. 2020 has brought massive changes to our lives on so many different levels. Some of these changes came bearing gifts. 

For me, seizing an opportunity born of adversity, I'm re-imagining my career path and following my dream of helping others as a Creativity Coach as well as and doing what I’ve been doing as an employee for others for years, but now freelance Marketing on my own and helping small businesses and artists with their business development. 

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 relationships since.

I hope to work with you soon!
