When I was a little girl I said I wanted to be a part-time beautician and pediatrician. And although I never became either (I was a pro-makeup artist for 10yrs), I realized what has mattered most to me by looking at these professions closer.
A beautician is all about connecting with her client to bring to life a vision that the client has. She works to bring out the best in her client.
A pediatrician often sees children who aren't feeling well and they look to identify the problem, come up with solutions and offer support in implementing so the child can thrive. They also see children who are well and they assess to make sure the child is growing and thriving. They make suggestions if anything comes up and in either situation, they are working to bring the best in them.
From as long as I can remember, bringing out the best in people has been something I've always tried to do in one way or another.
How I can support you with your growth goals
As a brand & team development strategist, I aim to help you to grow your brand by growing & nurturing your team.
My focus is to bring out the best in you and your team so your brand grows and thrives.
I work with you to grow, train and nurture your team, as your team is your greatest asset to growth. The process includes creating your brand story so your team understands the values, mission, vision, and audience your brand stands for. Next, we get clear on your marketing strategy and how your team plays a vital role in building relationships with your clients and prospective clients. After that, we work to develop a detailed and custom client experience that makes your clients feel supported and cared for. After that, we work with your team through training and one-on-one support in areas specific to growing your brand, which include morale, team building, diversity & inclusion, productivity, networking, client experience and brand story/culture.
The heart of my work is central to building relationships and helping women do the work they're called to do.
I am a natural big-bold dreamer and a deeply rooted woman of faith, proud Navy wife and loving mother to two little ones. I have a BA in social science with an emphasis in sociology & psychology and two years of graduate school in education in Clinical Counseling from Johns Hopkins University.
I am the author of EntrepreFriendships, a book that uncovers the step-by-step process of building business relationships. I have created group workshops, training and masterminds on topics pertaining to personal growth, building relationships, business growth and embracing diversity. I travel the country speaking and teaching and am incredibly passionate about relationships & doing purposeful work.
I believe it's not all about your comfort, but it's about your growth.

We shine brighter together
Give me gold, sequins, stripes, and bows, and you’ll have one happy-sassy soul sister. To know me is to also know I love to shine and sparkle, inside and out. So I love a sparkly shirt or accessory and pretty pumps. I’ve even been told, “You sparkle everywhere you go.” I love to shine bright, so you can shine brighter. I truly believe we shine brighter together!
