Best Story

I once heard, "Make sure you're an example before you attempt to teach." I've had countless trials that never resolved into triumphs, and failures solidified as fears. One would think this would cement a cynical view of progress, but it does the opposite. In the blurred lines of success, I found myself more resilient, tenacious, curious, and determined than ever. What was meant to be a boundary in turn became my boost. And has led me here.

Origin Story

My business story starts with a termination that turned into determination. My career was in limbo. I never forgot how a former mentor encouraged me to "sink or swim." I repeated this mantra to propel me to the other side. I grew my brand from a chance meeting at a career fair into a trusted collaboration, facilitation, and advising creative insights agency across five states. I'm always fortunate to do what comes so naturally to me: accelerate transformation from stagnation.
