By combining forces with community organizations, we can all grow forward together.

As the youngest of 6 kids, I've always been a natural helper, peacemaker and problem-solver..always looking for ways to make others happy. This motivated me to join the wonderfully crazy world of marketing where I quickly grew from an Account Executive to an Ad Director, then continued my journey as a Marketing Manager, General Manager, Agency Director and eventually a Chief Operating Officer of a marketing CUSO (credit union service organization). It was in the nonprofit / not-for-profit space where I found others that shared my passion for service.  

Those who know me and have worked with me say I have a knack for listening, seeing opportunities and empowering others to rise up.  I’ve been called an “efficiency spaz”, “fixer”, “solutionist” or just ”the one to get it done” regardless of what it is. I'm basically a communications ninja and professional gap filler.

Over my 16+ year career, I've encountered almost everything you could imagine..along with a few things I couldn't have imagined. Whether I was managing diverse teams, aligning internal and external communication, creating new revenue streams, reinventing brands, handling conflict management and challenging personalities, coaching, developing team members or reporting to a CEO and Board of Directors..I've owned and rocked it. 

Then, I found myself with significant and unexpected downtime due to health issues. In order to stay (relatively) sane, I needed to create something meaningful out of this extremely challenging experience. So after some hardcore reflection, I became inspired to use my powers for good and reconnect with my lifetime passions – growing and serving others.
