My Story

Being part of corporate sales management for many years, I saw first-hand how buying and selling was changing. It became evident that companies needed to embrace social selling as part of their strategy.

I began working with my company and team to implement LinkedIn strategies and began consulting with our customers to do the same. I found my passion. I  knew I wanted to help more people grow their business with social media.

In 2012 I decided it was time and I created my social media marketing business.

I’m certified in Social Media Marketing, Facebook Ads Management and Online Business Management.

I also have a B.A. in Business Management and Professional Communications.

Some Fun Facts About Me

And, I’m “MOM” to Sadie, my Office Helper.
