— BIO —
Twenty some years ago, a BBA in Marketing fell through the sunroof of my car and landed on a bottle of tequila.
Since then, I honed research, marketing, branding, and communication skills. I traveled a little, read a lot, and explored ideas with moxie. I held several corporate and small business marketing and communications jobs before saying “to hell with this” and starting my own brand consultancy in 2006.
This foundation informs my successful Etsy shop, FlytrapOnE, and helps me coach fellow solopreneurs and everyday people trying to live more satisfying lives. I want to help people break free from the chains of Should to turn “I don’t think so” into “I just did that.”
I live in Denver, Colorweedo with my husband, two dogs, and a very bitchy cat. For fun, I enjoy travel, hiking, reading, cooking, and art.

— EXPERTISE —
Trust me. I know what I’m doing.
Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
— GUIDING PRINCIPLES —
A few things I think are terribly important
Take responsibility for your feelings and actions, regardless of outside influences.
Celebrate freedom of expression without yielding to false wisdom or cultural norms.
Explore all things with an open mind, seeking conflicting viewpoints with moxie.
Always seek to be generous in spirit, humble in discourse, and graceful in adversity.
Spread joy and frivolity wherever you go, especially in the most serious environments.
Question perceived authority, ensuring innovation and advancement aren’t stunted.
