As an East Coast transplant, born to a marketing professor dad and a grade school teacher mom, education was key in our house. However, my parents also insisted that who we know is as important as what we know, and that everyone we meet has something to teach us.
Surviving Catholic school, I then earned a degree in Business Management, and continued coursework in graphic design, copyediting, and most recently earned a certificate in digital marketing from UC Berkeley. I also earned a fine art degree from Mills College and was honored to represent the school at the Venice Biennale, and presented my research of the event to both Mills College and UC Berkeley.
I spent the first half of my career running marketing companies on the East Coast, the San Francisco Bay Area, and then the Greater Los Angeles Area, before being recruited to Hawaii’s Big Island to become the director for a nonprofit Buddhist-inspired organization. However, paradise is no comparison for what I considered to be my ‘home’ and I returned to Marin County to create Inspiring Promotions.
For the last 15 years I’ve managed the book marketing strategies for business leaders, spiritual teachers, medical innovators and even a few celebrities. I’ve also enjoyed developing the online presence for a number of small business owners who need professional guidance to hone their brand, stay in front of their market, and keep up with the ever-changing digital marketing strategies.
