Running a successful business is really, really hard work.
It seems like there’s never enough time to get everything done. First, there is the work that you are actually hired to do – your specialty and hopefully your passion. It’s what you love. It’s what you’re good at. And it’s what pays the bill.

I’ve worked with clients and companies through times of change, where I specialize in creating processes and systems to allow for ongoing results. I’ve done everything from logo design to event planning and managed social media communities as well as media and blogger relations.
