“If you're a multi-passionate personal or professional brand, I want you to get intentional about how, why, and where you tell your stories.

Because if it’s the results and impact you're after, it’s your 
content and behaviors that will make all the difference.”

A story

There’s a good chance you started your brand as ‘a what.’ An LLC, an INC., a 501(c)3. But as you got to work inside your business and on its projects – you lost track of why you created it in the first place. 

Along the way, you hired random ‘experts.’ One person to work on your website. A different one to work on your social media. And a few headshot photographers to capture your image. But not one of them dove deeper than their specialty, leaving a disjointed brand for all to see.

Content isn’t one thing. It’s all the things you put out into the world from words, to visuals, to user experiences, to performances, and even behaviors. Your legacy and brand are built by how those things connect and the impressions, feelings and understanding it leaves with others.

Pardon my woo ... but here's what the Universe has to say about me.


Moon in Pisces: I'm intuitive + empathetic

Humans born with their moon in Pisces are sensitive and compassionate souls. They often pick up on the emotions and needs of other people without needing to be told what others are feeling and thinking. They simply know what they are going through on a deep, emotional level in touch with all the nuances and subtleties of human nature.


Jupiter’s in the Eighth House: ‘Uncovering’ is my specialty

Humans born with Jupiter in the eighth house are talented at strategy, research, and investigation – enjoying getting to the root of any problem. We take great pleasure in unraveling mysteries that seem elusive to others. Those born with this alignment are naturally ‘giving’ partners, and those partnerships benefit from my ability to manage others’ resources, image, and talents.

Yod-bearing with a Mercury fulcrum planet 

Humans born with a Yod in their natal chart are the seekers and history-makers of the Zodiac, on missions to find their divine purpose changing the world in the process. Those with Mercury as their fulcrum planet (as I am) have a life purpose involving speech and the written word. 

Inspiring change, one story at a time.
