As my mother was an artist, art  is part of my DNA. Though marketing strategic planning has been a focus of my career,  strategies come to life when creativity is integrated into the thinking.

Brand Hub


Combining intuition with conversations & research leads to understanding and insight.


Curiosity is a big part of who I am. This has led to many seminars, classes and self-study to learn new and different  skills.

From large companies to small businesses and work that has taken me coast to coast and beyond, I have enjoyed and learned from every experience.

Benefits of Working With Brand Hub

YOU are at the center of HUB. You work with experienced, strategic thinking at every phase regardless of the project.

This brings clarity to your input, facilitates information and projects quickly, and brings new ideas and a fresh perspective.

It changes the dynamics from one of facilitation to a higher level of initiative, commitment and involvement.


My first real job was working for a group of entrepreneurs who had a diverse number of ventures, including area development rights for Arby’s Roast Beef in CO, AZ, & HI. I didn’t know it at the time, but it was the best foundation upon which to start my career path. The business partners themselves had no fear, and taught me to face the unknown with anticipation and confidence. Managing a restaurant equipment company, working to identify new locations, building and launching new stores, understanding financial statements and supervision of the marketing–their expectations were that their young team, upon whom they depended, would figure out how to get the job done. And not just “done” but roll up our sleeves, get our hands dirty and accomplish a successful result. We learned to view any failures as just a temporary bump in the road.

That rich experience led to a life-long fascination and curiosity about businesses & all of the traits that combine to make them successful.
