After being in marketing and communications for more than 25 years for both non-profits and corporations, I recently stepped back to intentionally take the time to think about where I wanted to focus next.


Alongside the events I plan for Minnesota Women, I am now taking on new clients to support with B2B/B2B marketing, communications, social media, brand management, PR, etc. My focus will be on small emerging brands and companies and fees will operate on a sliding scale to further support the needs of entrepreneurs.
