My love story


Why me:

> I will help you see the beauty in your story that you can't see in yourself.
> I've trained people to be better storytellers in journalism, copywriting, marketing, finance, education, art, personal development, photography, ecom, and everything in between.
> I don't see marketing or sales targets; I see humans, with a unique journey and experience.
> Storytelling is my first language, marketing is my second.

A little bit about myself:

It's impossible for me not to see the world through storytelling, it's how I think and how I operate.

That, paired with my fascination and education in human psychology and background in media and marketing, I see things at the intersection of the art of storytelling and the science of marketing.

Being an entrepreneur for 15+ years, I've failed enough times to know what might work, and seen the ability of storytelling to repeatedly build the most sustainable community of fans, friends, and customers.

My storytelling has multiplied time spent on a website by upwards of four times, broken websites due to traffic, reached hundreds of thousands organically through social media, sold out first time launches, started social movements, 10x'd revenue, moved award winning authors to tears, cemented family histories and legacies in time, brought together humans from all walks of life, made people think, feel, and move to action.

What it’s like to work with me:

A deep dive into what it means to be human.

An examination of "traditional" marketing concepts.

A lot of introspection, play, exploration, growth, conversation, and supported action.

A discovery of your voice, your purpose, and your unique wisdom through your story.

Fun fact about me:

Born & raised in Vancouver, I grew up on great storytellers over CBC radio, like Stuart McLean.

I'm an avid animal fanatic, my first gig as an entrepreneur was as a freelance horseback riding instructor. You learn a lot about having to communicate and teach when surrounded by 1200 lb animals with their own instincts and ideas. I believe in the protection and preservation of the natural talents of working breeds of animals, while simultaneously tightening the regulations around adequate and humane stewardship.

I left home at 19, packing my car with whatever would fit and saving the front seat for my dog, to adventure across the US with my now husband.

Both times my children were born I was the sole financial contributor for our family, both times I lost my job in the week following their births and had to rebuild with a brand new baby. My husband is now the very happy stay-at-home Dad and educator, baking bread and making Kombucha and beer. It works for our family.

I've personally told the stories of NBCSports personalities, Hall of Fame Athletes, NY Times Bestselling Authors, Miss America competitors, and eight-figure entrepreneurs and they're exactly the same as you: no one really knows what they're doing day-to-day, we're all just navigating what it means to be exceptionally human.

My favorite project includes telling the stories of other entrepreneurs in their moments of struggle when their businesses were born. These stories oftentimes become their About pages.

When I left horse racing as a journalist, my final project was an article in the top, oldest, and most revered magazine in the industry.

I was the only female guest contributor in the issue, in a hugely male dominated field, alongside award winning journalists.
