I started out as a high school teacher: I loved being in the classroom, designing curriculum, and connecting with students. It wasn't easy to leave my teaching job when I founded my business, but I felt a pull on my heart toward the life of a full-time photographer. Since 2013, it's been a joy to capture emotional moments, happy memories, and empowering portraits.
But as I grew in my business and the industry, I noticed a gap. A lot of creatives were getting into education... but there were no resources to equip them with the training on how to teach. I brought my passion for teaching full-circle, and now work with creative educators to help them create effective curriculum design for their own students and to take the stage with confidence!
“No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.”
Ron's our ginger cat... but he's really more like a dog. He's friendly and affectionate, will greet you at the door, and will follow you around the house.
Luna's a little bit shy but super sweet! She's a bit crazy and keeps us on our toes (you can catch her on insta at #ourlooneyluna)!
Accessories: trusty sunnies, airpods, and blanket scarf (because why are planes always so cold?!)
Essentials: phone, camera, and speaking notes (I always review during my flight!)
Coffee: iced, please! Yes, it's probably my fourth cup today. No judgment.
Honestly, it's a lot! Like you, I'm a multi-passionate creative: I'm an educator, speaker, and more. I don't buy into the myth that you can only do one thing successfully. I love every part of what I do, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
If I'm not working, my favorite place to be is poolside with a bloody mary in-hand (extra garnish, please)!
As an educator, I host online courses and in-person events to empower creatives with the training they need to up-level their businesses.
I feel passionate about sharing my expertise and my story with other creatives, whether from the big stage or in a smaller break-out setting.
Since 2019, I've loved hosting the So, Here's the Thing Podcast - from solo episodes to candid conversations with the best of the best!
