Her work has been spotlighted by ABC, Let's Talk Live, Katie Couric, Design*Sponge, The Guardian, the INC 5000, Social Media Week, and SXSW. When she's not helping her clients and their teams, you can find her throwing impromptu solo dance parties, scouring vintage stores for items both sequined and sparkling, leading retreats through sun salutations, designing organic perfume and/or CX.
