On paper, my story seems to jump around quite a lot. I've had several career chapters, with odd bits and bobs filling in the gaps. However, when it all comes together, you can see there are consistent threads woven throughout: hospitality, creativity, adaptability. I believe in the story. I work with small businesses now because I know they each have their own story to tell but need someone else to pull out the threads.
My first career was in restaurants. I learned how to think on my feet, read people, and create an experience that made people feel taken care of and nourished. I reached a point where there was not enough growth potential and security for it to be sustainable. I wanted something that would give me more autonomy and the mobility of a trade. So, I went to massage school.
I spent 5 years building an inclusive, trauma informed, evidence-based practice that met people where they were and helped them by listening to their stories and creating a unique, custom experience where they felt supported and safe.
Over the last 2 years, this business has formed into its current version where I help overburdened small businesses create an authentic, unique, web presence by building their websites, writing their stories, solving their tech problems, and providing them trustworthy, personal support.
