She makes things that move people.


     The New York Times, Adweek, Upworthy and Jimmy Kimmel like her work. She made a world-changing idea in 2019, according to Fast Company. The U.S. Library of Congress archived one of her projects as a record of American history.

 She’s helped financial brands tell their story, cannabis brands find their purpose, launched a crypto trading platform for mainstream investors, and made a country fall in love with sweatpants. She teaches workshop facilitation at Miami Ad School.    

adidas, Canopy Growth, Capital One, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Harlequin Publishing, Mailchimp, Roots, Samsung, and Wattpad have been her clients. She’s helped many founder-led brands find their voice, and their investors.

A strategy director and workshop facilitator, she can fly solo or lead a team to the right answer. She works with creative agencies, consultancies and incubators to create brand, content, cultural, innovation, marketing and thought-leadership strategies.

Despite all evidence to the contrary, she usually doesn’t like to brag—or talk about herself in third person. She did come here to make friends

the most intelligent and insightful people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She makes everything she touches exponentially better.
