who I am
A Creative Director, Editorial Director, big-picture thinker. Plus a really, really good copywriter.
what I do
I have a passion for building brands and creating compelling marketing in the beauty, fashion, and lifestyle spaces. Some areas where I have expertise:
• Omni-channel marketing campaigns (Top to bottom of funnel)
• Brand /product positioning
• Brand voice development
• Email, ecommerce, video, & digital marketing
• Direct response/performance marketing
• Environmental graphics, retail signage, & OOH
• Agency/vendor relationship management
• Product naming
• Brand, editorial, & creative strategy
• Beauty & still-life photo shoot production
• Interviewing, hiring, & building effective teams
• Mentoring, coaching, & being "work mom"
When I’m not shopping on Instagram or doing a HIIT class, you can find me watching garbage TV, being outdoorsy in Lake Tahoe (skiing if it's winter, floating with a wine slushie if it’s summer), or hanging out with my two poorly behaved Bengal cats, Juno and Penelope.

what makes me special
I am a creative with a strong marketing mindset, and believe that good work has to work. It can't just be beautiful and inspirational—it has to make sense to the customer and be achievable for the team. Sometimes that means using the word "sale." Sometimes the best way to scale up production is to make templates. Sometimes the price or logo really does need to be bigger.
There's never enough budget or resources or time, but this is where I
thrive—creating efficiencies, identifying priorities, picking the right
battles, using resources wisely, and being a good teammate
and generous partner in order to Get. Things. Done.
what I believe
Being true to your brand identity will never steer you wrong
Success does not have to be a zero-sum game
Honest constructive feedback is kinder than avoiding hard truths
The best way to say "Free Shipping" is "Free Shipping"
