My background is in fashion and digital marketing. Over the past few years, I have served as the Director of Marketing for a handmade sneaker company, consulted fashion startups on their digital marketing efforts and, most recently, am the co-founder of a fashion startup.
I have a passion for helping and sharing what I know with people who are looking for insights. My courses will pull from my background to help other people involved with small business projects, startups, or even freelancers and educators who are looking to hone their skills.
