HOW IT STARTED : MY STORY

Since we are just meeting for the first time, you should know that I am best known for my big + energetic personality, I am a tall drink of water (6’0 to be exact), I love any pun you throw at me, I am all about being real + transparent with my crew (you’re cool with TMI, right?), and I have an insatiable passion for supporting women in business.

I have been a entrepreneur since I was 11 years old when I started a jewelry import business with my grandfather. Ever since then, I have made it my mission to surround myself and learn from the greatest entrepreneurs and leaders in my community and beyond.

I started my journey with branding and marketing when I started my career as a professional photographer in 2010, when my creative heart and business brain merged. Even though I didn’t own a camera or even knew how to use one … I went for it!

Over the past nearly decade, I have honed my skills as a photographer, as an entrepreneur, and as a branding and marketing educator. Through this, I have been able to combine my experience in photography and my passion for empowering women into a platform that provides practical tools, education and experiences for women in business.

I am most passionate about working with women entrepreneurs who have always wanted to feel beautiful in photos, who are ready to learn how to grow both themselves and their business … and who don’t mind laughing their way through the process.

When I’m not behind a camera, consulting, speaking to a room of inspiring women, or making videos for my YouTube channel, you will most likely find me planning my next trip, watching Corgi puppy videos on Instagram, shopping at consignment stores or spending time outdoors on the lake paddleboarding or hiking up up a mountain!

I am currently based in the Pacific Northwest, but Alpaca my bags for wherever photoshoots, speaking opportunities and adventures take me!
