I’m a growth hacker, digital media architect, social media strategist, personal branding coach, snapchat expert, and … well, I’ve been called a lot of things lately so I’m actually not quite sure. I prefer mompreneur or accidental entrepreneur because I’m just doing my thing and going with my gut!
I run my own digital media agency and having been building an ed tech start-up behind the scenes that is a digital co-working marketplace for educating, embracing, and engaging with digital innovators. I also teach Snapchat for Business after having made the 1st ever Snapchat movie (#GlobalSnapSwap) and am working diligently to build up my professional speaking career as an international keynote speaker and motivational coach.
I am extremely passionate about what I do and believe that even though I don’t know exactly where I’m going… at least I know I’m going somewhere!!
So, WHO should I surround myself with?????
