How I can help you

I like to take a 'big picture' approach to help businesses with operations, marketing, and public relations. From there, the details can be prioritized.  As a manager, director, and corporate trainer, in hospitality and the arts, I am able to assist with business plans, budgets, policies/procedures, marketing, and social media for non-profit and for profit organizations.  Having worked with independent companies for the bulk of my career, I have the unique perspective on ways to maximize operation efficiencies in small businesses.
