My best career achievements have been those that had a positive impact on the lives of others -- while also benefiting the business I have worked for and started. My experience covers design thinking, innovation, communications, brand development, digital marketing, media relations and social media strategy that has resulted in 7 figures worth of free publicity on product launches.
By approaching a problem with empathy and creativity I have used the design thinking principles to help clients identify the obstacles that were stopping them from achieving their goals, and reframe the problems to make them easier to solve.
If you have tried something and it hasn’t worked, then maybe you’re working on the wrong problem. I can help you find the real problem to solve.
