Year Established: 2008
Type of Business: Marketing
Short Hills, NJ and NYC
Local ties: I moved to New Jersey from Florida in 2011. I currently live in Short Hills with my husband and 3 sons aged 16-14-9. I work out of my home office but often shoot all around the NJ area.
Social causes: Community causes: I love to speak about visual storytelling and branding at local women's groups, conferences and organizations. I also lead a free Facebook community called Brand Confidential: Building Your Stand Out Brand, where I share tips, strategies and advice on creating a breakthrough brand. I lead a free Ladyboss Book Club both online and in person for women in business who love books and are interested in personal development.
Best moment as a business owner: Witnessing my clients' transformation! Seeing them move from feeling confused and scared to confident and bold in their business. By the end, my clients feel ready to share their message, become more visible and make an incredible impact.
Favorite activity in New Jersey: Supporting local businesses in downtown Millburn, visiting the farmers markets and heading to the beach with family.
