About  Me  image

I started my freelance marketing business in 2007 as a side to my "day job".
That job brought in the proverbial steady paycheck but it was not a great place for my joy.
Still, in that context, programming planning, connecting with people, getting the word out on events I curated, and the rush of it all coming together kept me going.
That made me decide to start offering creative people, small businesses and entrepreneurs low cost marketing services. Soon I was also helping with branding, event planning and fundraisers for all sorts of good causes.
Eventually, in 2016, I took the leap and set out on my own.
Over the years I have had many successful experiences and learned a lot along the way.
Also, over those years, with the growth of technology, incredibly cost effective opportunities have presented themselves in terms of marketing and promotion.
When COVID-19 hit in March 2020 we were all thrust into a strange new world. In that world it became even clearer that digital outreach and virtual events were crucial to staying connected and relevant.  All that being said, right now, I can help you in the following ways:

  • Getting the word out on your organization, event, performance or project.
  • Creating or enhancing  your  social media presence.
  • Connecting you with your customers or followers through e- newsletters.
  • Creating virtual and live events.
  • Direct you toward funding sources and income generating ideas.
  • Guide you through opportunities for partnership and cross promotional opportunities.
  •  Transforming your organization's profile and operations with state of the art best practices.

My focus is currently on non profit 501(c) 3 organizations but all inquiries are welcome.

 I have over 25 years of experience creating, promoting and presenting innovative programming, crafting powerful marketing strategies, designing exciting events and making community connections that have enhanced the profiles of a variety of organizations.  I have also completed a few degree programs over the years.

Pretty simple right?

Keep keeping in mind that in the digital age dollars go a long way.


I can provide digital and traditional forms of marketing. I know how to spread the word in ways you may not know exist. And I have media contacts.


I can share cutting edge ideas on fundraising with you as I constantly monitor current trends and tips. And I can assist with grant research and writing.


I can help you navigate the logistics of both live and virtual events.


I can get you in front of the right people, places and things. I know where your potential audiences and customers are. "Thinking outside the box not your thing?" No worries it is mine.


I can help you create the consistent "look" that is important to an organization's success. That means visually as well as your ongoing public perception. I can help you refine your current brand or help craft a new one.


Governance by a strong Board, clear fundraising expectations, good fiscal stewardship and thoughtful adherence to the mission are crucial and ethically important to success, credibility and sustainability. If you agree let's connect.
