Passionate & Professional

Internet Marketing Strategist and Consultant

I have been a resident of Asheville, North Carolina since August of 1999. My background is in professional writing, media relations, event production, office management and customer service. Since 2003 I have worked as a keyword research, content marketing, social media, and web site development specialist.

Entrepreneurship

In 2003 I began my first company and was Managing Partner and Marketing Director of Sidhe Communications, LLC from 2003 to 2009. In 2009 I closed that business and started Creative Original, Inc., a small business web design, development, and consulting firm. In 2013 I decided to begin a collaboration with a local competitor and became co-founder and lead instructor at the JB Media Institute, a digital marketing school based in Asheville.

Awards and Accolades

I am a proud graduate of Leadership Asheville 31 and a member of the 2014 Asheville 40 Under 40. I was also honored to receive the Asheville WomanUP Woman Executive of the Year award in 2017. I also serve as markerting coordinator for WordCamp Asheville, as a member of the core leadership team for Community Roots, and as a board member for the Asheville chapter of AIGA.
