I’m a Christian, creator, leader, writer, funny girl, abolitionist, multi-tasker, filmie, foodie, tree hugger, daydreamer, locavore-in-training, consultant, traveler, and entrepreneur, to name a few.
I’m also the founder and Chief Do-Gooder at Signify, where I help small nonprofits and for-profits with a social mission get noticed and grow through effective marketing and communications.
I also teach solopreneurs and small businesses how to incorporate cause marketing, philanthropy, and giving strategies so they can leverage their existing resources and influence to make a positive impact.
Essentially, I make cause-focused organizations look and sound more professional so they can build a larger audience, increase sales or donations, and do more good.
