Company Description

“I believe stories have the power to transform lives. That’s why my passion is helping my clients tell their brand story with clarity, purpose, and soul. Clients come to me when they need to clearly communicate what their brand stands for; are in need of a rebranding to transform and grow their brand; or, need to design and launch a new brand. After designing my high school newspaper on one of the first Macs, I became fascinated with the idea of telling stories by combining my love of art and design with technology. My first job out of college was working at an environmental nonprofit designing a full-color magazine for more than 1 million subscribers. Since then, I’ve helped to build multicultural brands for clients like the Steve Harvey World Group, the African Union, Iyanla Vanzant, the National Urban League, Destination DC, and Turner Construction. Using my expertise in multicultural design, branding, and marketing, I’ve helped my clients land multi-million dollar sponsors, sell out events, design and launch #1 Amazon bestselling books, and increase product sales by more than 500% in 30 days. And although my siblings used to tease me for talking too much when I was younger, speaking has actually served me well as an adult. I’ve had the honor of speaking and/or teaching on branding and purpose at the United Nations, World Bank, International Economic Development Council Conference, Bowie State University, Georgetown University, NAACP Conference, and on Capitol Hill, amongst others. The Washington Post, Forbes Africa, ABC News, Communication Arts, HOW Magazine, NPR, NBC News, FOX5DC, and ESSENCE.com are a few of the places my work has been featured. In 2014, I co-authored “Whose Shoes Are You Wearing? 12 Steps to Uncovering the Woman You Really Want to Be”, a powerful personal development book helping women discover and live out their purpose. If you need help building, transforming or promoting your company brand, let’s connect!”
