Who I am

Life saving Virtual Assistant + Business Coordinator, I'm a tech-savvy organization nerd living the dream in the lovely Midwestern city of Saint Louis. A seasoned advertising photography studio VP of Operations and Certified Holistic Health Coach who thrives on marketing, business building and systemization. Lover of music of all genre, DIY projects and all things dealing with organization.

I am Creative

My background is in advertising, photography, marketing communications and holistic health. I have been fortunate enough to be one of the few people who has spent almost 11 years working for ONE company (besides my own health coaching practice that is). Yes, that's right! For almost 11 solid years, I got to try on a MILLION DIFFERENT HATS at an advertising photography studio, providing me with a deep and rich exposure (yep! I did that) to all things advertising and small business.

Throughout those years, I've been; "the intern", photographer's assistant, photographer, digital technician, photoshop wizard, graphic designer, production artist, project manager, print broker, client relationship manager, producer, marketing manager, sales specialist, editor, copywriter, content developer, bookkeeper, webmaster, web designer, coder, human resources manager, vice president of operations, coffee gopher, and of course - janitor.

I am Driven

Throughout my life I have always strived for good health, and that brought me to the holistic health coaching world. I studied at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and received my certification to become a health coach. I LOVED starting my practice. The business planning, creating processes, designing

the collateral, program & product development & promotion of them gave me a high! While I had a created a thriving practice, after a few years, I found that I enjoyed the coaching part, I most enjoyed doing all the work behind the scenes! (I know - crazy right?)

Why Creatives & Coaches

Focusing and calibrating my skills between the two small business worlds of advertising photography and coaching over the last 11 years has afforded me the opportunity to fully appreciate and understand the multiple roles necessary to hone a successful business.

My longevity and diversity in these fields has sharpened my marketing, business development, and sales expertise to allow for a seamless transition of my skills to help make your business fly! Simply put - I work with people who are in the businesses I know best. Book a FREE Consultation
