I’m a marketing director with over a decade of experience in the trenches managing the marketing for successful businesses from Main Street to B2B to Nonprofit.
From marketing and brand strategy to designing marketing materials, advertising campaigns and more; I am able to help you organize your brand, strategically craft a plan of attack and put the pieces in place to help get your message heard and business noticed by your people. Cause at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about!
I founded my creative services business in 2007 seeking to provide a creative, strategic and flexible alternative to big agencies for businesses and nonprofits. I work closely with my clients to understand their business before starting any new project. I believe in taking a fresh approach to everything I do and strive to provide a unique perspective for my clients.
Aesthetics are an important part of everything I do. I value simplicity, innovation, consistency, creativity and the road less traveled. I love brainstorming.
I’ve got entrepreneurial roots — my parents own a business — so I’ve always known I wanted to own my own biz too. In college I tapped into my passion for writing by studying Journalism. After working as a reporter for a while, I landed a job doing marketing and public relations for a nonprofit organization. I’ve been doing it ever since.
I’m a creative marketing director who can see the big picture and knows all the little details needed to pull it together. I have planned award-winning events, designed marketing materials and developed integrated marketing campaigns.
I live and work on Cape Cod, Mass. — most days with a cat on my desk and a dog under my feet. After years of writing nothing other than press releases and marketing copy, I’m in the process of writing my first book.
