Owner & Lead Designer

“Entrepreneurs are dream catchers, risk-takers, explorers, endurance runners, artists, community leaders and job creators. They don’t give up or give in, they follow the road less traveled and they are not afraid of a challenge. We have a passion for helping small business owners, because we are entrepreneurs too and we understand the journey. “

Born & raised in NY, in the gorgeous Hudson Valley, I moved with my family to Kentucky in 2005, and I have made the Bluegrass our home by getting involved and supporting the local community. Since 2005, we lived in Richmond KY, I opened my office in Downtown Lexington KY in 2012 and moved to Lexington KY in 2016. Although I miss Richmond, ‘my other hometown’, I have enjoyed exploring the diverse culture, delicious culinary choices, and the thriving local business community.

Personal:

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my son and my maltipoo, Maddie Boo, contributing time to local non-profits, reading, creative writing, blogging and pursuing her spiritual goals.  I love trying out new paleo & gluten-free recipes, as well as reading, painting, and entertaining friends & family.

Inspiration & Motivation

“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint‘,
then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”

— Vincent Van Gogh

 

With a focus on small business owners, I have a passion to help others find the joy of running their own business and discover their own hidden potential. I enjoy seeing small business owners achieve what they didn’t think was possible beyond their dreams.

As many female entrepreneurs, I deal with many of the issues that is common for business women: work/life balance, handling competitors, overcoming personal challenges, dealing with stress and building a business in a changing world. I often write about these issues on my blog, as well as breaking down complex topics of internet marketing into easy-to-digest and understand articles.

My inspiration initially when I started my business was to do what I love with a flexible schedule so I could start a family.  And nearly 20 years later, family comes first and remarkably after all the bumps in the road, I still love what I do.
