I HATE Social Media!

I have been in the trenches, working in small and family owned businesses since I was a teenager. I have experienced great success and witnessed surprising failure. The 24/7 never leave the office mindset of a small business owner is all I know. I know what support I wish I could have relied on as I built, managed and owned various small businesses. My diverse background across industries and specialties has given me a unique perspective on the common foundations that create success in any business. These similarities partnered with the exciting differences are what I can use to create connections with prospects, customers and community. My innovative Full Engagement Marketing Philosophy capitalizes on YOUR story, YOUR great customer experience and your personality.

Full Engagement Marketing keeps your message personal, social and most importantly valuable and trusted.

As an “in house” executive team, I have the great pleasure of intimately enjoying each success of my clients. Business is not for the faint of heart and having a trusted partner makes the journey a bit easier and more rewarding. I work hand in hand with my clients to design and implement a business strategy, processes and procedures in alignment with the things they value most.

I believe success in business and entrepreneurship is an on going process; I enjoy hosting educational speaking events and speaking on topics that can help business grow and leverage their social equity. Empowering business owners to understand and embrace their business strategies is a critical component of all my presentations.
