Understanding a business challenge and developing a marketing strategy to help a business meet its goals and objectives excites me! After more than two decades of corporate marketing and communications experience in various service-related industries, I founded my marketing consulting business in 2013 to work one-on-one with small- and medium-sized businesses in Atlanta and across the state of Georgia on their marketing challenges. As a high-energy, organized marketing professional, I have a proven track record for delivering results across numerous service-based industries and demographics.
