I started my first company at the age of 19. A portrait photographer by trade and a marketer by heart, I built a following of thousands and worked with hundreds of clients.
However, my true passion is serving the nation’s military families. Unable to serve for medical reasons, I made it my goal to help military families and veterans follow their dreams. Using my entrepreneurial success and strong military marketing background, I now consult, mentor, and teach veterans and military spouses how to use social media and modern marketing practices to increase the success of their entrepreneurial ventures.
I have worked in the military non-profit, corporate, public affairs, and contract sectors. My military background is diverse for a civilian, as I lived in the barracks as an Army photojournalist, spending a summer rappelling down towers, in the gas chamber, and participating in land navigation training (boy I hated land nav!).
A patriot to the core, I believe in empowering entrepreneurs with military backgrounds and those in the military sector to live the American dream.
