I AM LIVING PROOF THAT YOU CAN DESIGN YOUR LIFE.
I worked in the Web Interaction Design & Development industry from 1998-2013 with emphasis on empathetic and behavioral psychology-applied design for web, mobile web, and iOS applications. A nasty spell of Life Burnout after the loss of my dad in 2012 prompted me to redesign my life using the tools gained from a 15-year award-winning digital design career.
By 2014 I was being booked to speak at events around the world, an active podcaster, podcast guest, writer, and professional experimenter. I learned how to own my time and pour my focus into working on things I love, with people I love working with, then teach others how to do the same as a corporate talent coach/partner.
Currently, I'm the co-founder and CEO of Picture This Clothing (PTC). PTC started as a passion project created with my partner in life & in business (Ken Finney, Jr.), launched by a single Tweet from my personal Twitter account the morning of March 17, 2016, had a TechCrunch write-up by the end of the same day, and a viral burst immediately following.
I’m also the mom of 2 human daughters and 3 cat sons.
I'm fueled by fun, Muppets, Disney, and a heavy sprinkling of rebellion.
My mission is to contribute something positive to the world and create tools that allow others to do the same.
