About Me

From Software Engineer to

Brand and Marketing Strategist

I got my first computer in fifth grade. It had a Windows 95 operating system and I loved the darn thing. I wrote my first computer program on my calculator two years later, and went on to get my Masters in Software Engineer.

In my nine years working as a software engineer, I worked on web development teams and finally designed software for the pharmaceutical research space.

It was thrilling, exciting, and tiring all at once. And then, I became a mom. Having my daughter changed how I operate and how I view the world.

I wanted a job with more flexibility, but more so, I wanted something that was my own, separate from my family. Something that I could build to make a difference in my own way.

After starting my web design business for other small businesses, I realized that there was more overlap than I had originally thought with my life as an engineer. The same principles that are used to engineer large software projects can also be used with great success to engineer successful small businesses.

Now, I help other entrepreneurs grow their business by bringing in more (and better) clients. Together, we create a professional strategy and plan that maximizes your marketing so you can attract those ideal clients consistently. We work together to get you more of your precious time back.

When it comes to your messaging and website, I use my engineering background to help you create an amazing experience that draws in your ideal client and shows them why they have to work with you. Your messaging can help you gain clients easily by communicating who you are and who you want to work with.

I believe...


Our thoughts and feelings shouldn't stay locked up in our heads. We need to put them out there and express them to the world. We're all about making how we feel and think on the inside visible to others.

Everyone and every business is unique. That means that cookie-cutter branding and marketing don't work. You have your own story and preferences; something that should be celebrated.

Everyone comes to the table with their own skill-set and ideas. It's important to honor and respect those skills to grow and scale your business. You can learn anything that is explained correctly for you.

At the end of the day, all you really have is your word. Having the highest level of integrity is one of the few things you CAN control in this online world. It's important do the right thing.

It's important to be authentic to yourself. So if something doesn't feel right, it's important to put on the breaks. You want to show who you are and your own story, even if it's not picture perfect.
