A MISSION WITH PURPOSE
I empathize with how scary it can be to jump in to start your own business. This why I am here to offer my years of knowledge, hundreds of hours of schooling and sleepless nights of research to help you strategically launch and scale your business into a profitable brand.
Why am I doing this? One of my greatest joys in life comes from seeing my clients grow confident in their business as upcoming leaders in their industry. I love to see clients glow when they can spend their days doing what they love. I call this the YesHoney Glow Up™

Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not on Kansas anymore.

Well, it is a long story but it all began with MySpace…
I made money as an adolescent, designing and modifying MySpace profiles for friends in the early 2000s but I originally wanted to be a journalist. The recession’s massive $10,000,000 budget cut to the state of California closed my high school’s journalism program in spite of my plans. And voila, life trajectory change.
The New Plan: Bachelor in Web Design & Interactive Media at the Art Institute of California–Sacramento.
I became painfully aware that my financial foundation was not as sound as it should’ve been in my freshman year of college. I began introducing myself to all the professors of the senior-level classes, department heads, and officers. This was followed by volunteering for every possible event until I secured a student worker position working directly with the Director of Design at the time.
Going Pro: Internships, Money Moves, and Opportunities
My professional web career began fairly quickly (sans Tom from Myspace). After working at the school for a year, I secured an internship at a web development agency called Digital Gear.
I was hired on full-time upon graduating working on large accounts such as Yosemite.com, Abico.com, Fairytaletown.org, and APACalifornia.org. I said goodbyes to the awesome team at Digital Gear as Technology Director for a new role as a Front-end developer at Lumens.com. There I gained a wealth of knowledge on marketing, analytics and on how multimillion dollar companies prioritize their marketing efforts.
Reinvesting in Myself for My Clients: Master of Science in Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Full Sail University
While working full-time at Lumens, I was named Valedictorian earning awards for Business Model Development, Entrepreneurial Finance, Legal Issues for Entrepreneurship, Business Model Presentation & Thesis as well as the Advanced Achievement Award.
I am now finalizing a second graduates degree to continue serving my clients in PR counsultations.
