I’m happiest when I’m solving problems for people. That feeling at the end of a meeting with a new client, when you can see the relief and clarity on their face and you know you’ve done something special. Attending the grand opening of a client’s first brick-and-mortar store. I live for those moments.

I'm a (former) business attorney, PR exec, political strategist and lifestyle writer with a passion for extraordinary writing, creative solutions, and helping small business owners build their empires.

I offer business growth, marketing and success strategies to designers, professionals, brands and boutiques to help them find - and keep - their dream customers.

As a legal eagle, I counseled clients through every possible crisis and opportunity. Starting up, adding (and subtracting) partners, hiring, firing, handling growth, navigating tricky administrative issues...whatever's keeping you from hitting your target, I've seen - and solved - it all. When I moved on to PR and editorial, I had the chance to experience the world of marketing from both angles, putting me in a unique position of knowing what actually works (and what definitely doesn't) when it comes to marketing strategies.

Every small business owner needs a sounding board - that rational voice of experience to tell you which ideas will work, and help you fix the ones that won't. Someone who has a firm grasp on reality and a birds-eye view of the big picture. I'm passionate about playing that role for my clients, and - simply put - my strategies get results.

Curious about my editorial chops?

As the founder and editor-in-chief of a successful lifestyle website, I built a reputation as a down-to-earth and hyper-discriminating expert on style, interiors, travel and design. Spending a decade writing about and working closely with the brands and businesses I knew and loved paved the way to becoming a contributing writer, editor and lifestyle expert for some extraordinary online and print publications, including Design Sponge, Daily Candy, iVillage, About Face magazine, Diablo magazine, Oregon Home, Mankind magazine and more.
