Intuitive. Creative. Direction.
Feeling stuck in your business? Need a fresh pair of eyes to give you real talk about where you're missing the mark or where the competition is crushing and you're treading water?
I get it.
I was a corporate agency copywriter and political image consultant after University, and I took a hard turn and followed my passion for cooking and entertaining in the salon style and became a chef/owner of two successful concepts featuring local meats and produce, boutique wines and top level service (1997-2007) in Atlanta.
From there I went rural. I was founder and creative director (and chicken wrangler!) at The Habersham Hacienda my farm to fork special events facility and sustainable farmette and wellness center in the North Georgia Mountains. 13 years later I had the opportunity to sell and have been traveling and writing since March 2019.
( Thirteen years is a long time to live in the woods and tend to 7 acres by the way. )
Now, mid way through 2020, I have landed in Tulsa, OK and some days the wind really does come sweepin' down the plain.
Lots of new spirit in this little big city. And from where I sit, even on the edge of downtown, lots of glorious trees.
The vibe is loose and there's lots of green space, high art and live music.
So what have I learned in over 25 years of owning several businesses, marketing on a dime, talking to folks and writing their stories?
No matter what, rebranding is hard inside your own bubble. And if you don't refresh, you look stale.
Sometimes you can't afford a whole agency and so you're at your kitchen table talking to the dog about what next.
I hopefully can fill that hole in your (business) soul. Disingenuous marketing slogans and optics only "good PR" moments don't work as well anymore. The veil is getting thinner by the day and I specialize in crafting an honest narrative for your small business.
Grounded, intuitive guidance.
The Practical Mystic.

Content generation, social media (for grown ups), video scripts, image direction
My background spans politicians to psychics, wine shops to massage therapy and
obviously---all things culinary, but I'm not limited by genre. Give me a holler and we'll talk about you.
My rates are affordable and transparent at $65/hour with a two hour minimum, so if you want to just kick around ideas,
sub out the writing on a big design project, or get input on your plans and vision, I'm here.
