Excited to be a small business helping other small businesses become the remarkable places that make our communities great! Excited to connect people to other remarkable professionals. Excited to uncover issues, pain points and other roadblocks that are keeping you from being remarkable. Exciting stuff, huh?
I run a studio dedicated to delivering high quality work to small businesses that need “big budget” solutions without the “big budget” price tag. My studio offerings range from simple consultations to full blown marketing plans; including branding, website design and development, social media strategy.
I work with other creative folks in the community through an internship program to provide these services solely to small businesses that aspire to remain small. I also provide workshops and training sessions to improve understanding of business and creative skills.
Over my 20 year professional journey, there have been some great lessons that I would love to share with you! One lesson is to follow your heart no matter what*. My heart has always resonated with the small business owner. Why should simple marketing and creative skills seem to be “out of budget”, “out of reach”, “out of hope” for people that are so passionate about their businesses? This is one lesson I hope to disprove.
(*NO MATTER WHAT)

Schooled at the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!) in design and photography, Pratt Institute New York in design management and certified in digital marketing and as a usability analyst.
