from scratch, or refurbished

I have a face that's launched a thousand Brands. I'm also not afraid to host a Brandtervention for a big ol' dinosaur. What I'm saying is Brands are my jam. From startups to things you'll find in your kitchen, wallet, and living room, let me at 'em.


herding the creative hordes

Teamwork is the name of every game, and lucky for you, I'm an awesome teammate and leader. I teach, I hone, I encourage, I push, I mold. Proteges, bosses, and colleagues alike have called me a delight, and seek to work with me again and again.


even though nobody reads it

Scripts, websites, emails -- whaddya need? "Can she grasp the complexities of my business challenges and market?" You betcha. "Create voices that speak to specific people and get them to change their behaviors?" Yep, do it daily. Try me.

When not giving tours of my ever-growing shoe collection or jetting off to far-flung lands, I’m a religious sports fan, avid reader and TV-watcher, and conqueror of word puzzles. I revel in trivial knowledge, and am always thrilled to try out new restaurants and athletic pursuits.
