IDEALIST. COURSE JUNKIE. ROCK CLIMBER.
When I’m not nerding out about business, you’ll find me climbing rocks, kicking balls, traveling, reading, and honing my craft through absurd amounts of courses, classes, programs, and conferences (ok, so I nerd out about business A LOT).
I’m an Idealist, a big picture thinker, and a lifelong learner. I love writing, talking and learning about business, process and workflow, and believe that entrepreneurship is the new economy. I’ve been featured in BYOB Book, mentor for the Conquer Club, featured as a SheBrand superstar, and am listed as one of 10 women you need to know in interface design.
Armed with my fancy Honours Bachelor of Design degree from the York/Sheridan Design Program in Toronto, I’ve got 5 years of small agency experience as an interactive designer and digital strategist, and an additional 5+ years of experience flying solo as a small business owner. I adore working with passionate small business owners, and am always willing to share what I know with others. I truly believe in collaboration over competition.
In late 2011 I sold all my belongings and lived/worked in Bali for 3 months. I spent the remainder of 2012 couch-surfing, adding a few more pins to my map, including: Cambodia, South Korea, Paris, UK, Calgary, Philadelphia, and Seattle.
Currently I’m settled in Vancouver, B.C. with my partner Ben (and our Shiba Inu, Mochi) with whom I have started a new company focused on helping small businesses and entrepreneurs teach and share their wisdom online (launching soon!).
I’ve been a passionate vegetarian for 12+ years, and I have no idea why I went so long without a Vitamix.
