The Art of Storytelling
& The Science of Marketing
At 15 I was running my first business and 15 years later I was growing a media company with a team of exceptional storytellers; entrepreneurship is in my blood and story is how I see the world.
I built my way up from the bottom in media in a male-dominated field by telling powerful stories that captivated attention, connected to people across the globe, and created conversions naturally and easily.
Through multi-viral social media posts and multi-story magazine features that sold out, I cracked the code on pairing the art of storytelling with the science of marketing to influence and impact an audience, no matter the demographic.
Now I help purpose-driven coaches and consultants tell the stories in their marketing that touch hearts, hold attention, and inspire action by connecting in our most basic human experiences and emotions.
Layer that onto data-driven marketing strategies and you build a business you actually love and thrive in that sustainably grows while scaling your bottom line.

The Origin Story of My Business...
I sat on the couch, the late spring light streaming in through the trees, the way it dances while it teases at hints of summer.
Pulling my knees to my chest, the cushions behind my back hugging the space between my spine and frame of the couch, I cradled our brand new baby in my arms. In that deep sleep only newborns can achieve, she was peacefully and blissfully unaware of the chaos brewing inside of me.
My chest was so tight, the air unable to find the pockets of my lungs as if someone had bound them tight when I had exhaled. The blackness swirled in my gut, opening a pit into a pool of worst case scenarios. And my mind raced, despite trying to keep it – if not quiet – at the very least at the edge of the implosion that was collapsing in around me and ready to take me with it.
I couldn’t look up – wouldn’t. My husband’s kind and deep eyes framed in their own fear and doubt that he was pushing away.
I couldn’t look up – wouldn’t – as my breath got lost in an exhale, broken and short, and I began to descend once again.
“How could this be happening to us again!?” I asked, trying to muffle my cries and soften them in the cushion of words escaping my lips, desperate to let sleeping babies, sleep.
Here we were, not four years after this exact same event had transpired with our first child: a brand new baby not a week old, and our entire financial security disappeared.
The media company I had dedicated my life to for almost three years had crumbled and I – the breadwinner of the family – was out of a job.
And the only person who was able to show me why we were here, again, was the one person who loved me the most.
“It’s going to keep happening until you do this for yourself,” my husband said.
And in that single moment my business was born.
