Is your online brand living its best life? If so, cool. If not, that’s my gift. I teach brands to use tools that market the special je ne sais quoi that is uniquely theirs by listening to their digital community's heart, harnessing its energy and making shit happen. Big project? I have an agile all girl team of trusted doers, deaLab, who work to scale. In other words, I help your brand be as dope online as you are offline. Periodttt
Currently, I count New York Times best-selling author, Luvvie Ajayi, as a core client. We’ve developed three super cool things in less than a year: Luvvnation, her closed digital community on Mighty Networks, The Do-Better Academy, her eSchool and her first LuvvList partnership program. S/o Tamara Lalande, Sili Recio and Macy Robeson for all the support, wisdom and good energy. We’ve got more awesomeness in the works, so stay tuned!
Right before I struck out on my own and formed deaLab, I was Senior Director Content & Social Innovation at the nation's leading online social justice not-for-profit, Color Of Change. Of the amazing campaigns I directed with a unforgettable team, these are closest to my heart: End Money Bail, Private Prisons Public Menace, Financial Literacy with I Am Ash Cash, and vibrant partnerships with Vice, MTV and AfroPunk. In addition, we successfully increased a key social media platform by over 1000% by creating a multi-step accountability process, optimizing content and refining consumer mapping. Instagram much?
Before that, I developed content, video, social and communications strategies at SheMedia , Meredith Video Studios, The Better TV Show, MTV and KB Network News leveraging strong storytelling, data and relationships to increase ROI and brand engagement, closing new business as a result.
A proud camel (talk about an adventure loving animal), I’m a graduate of Connecticut College, that school perched in the hills of idyllic New London with a tough crew and rugby team. I played both, so now you know who you’re working with, eh? There, I was a psychology major and “was-gonna-be-a-doctor-until-organic-chemistry-felled-me-like-a-tree-in-a-Kansas-twister.”
The good thing? That detour bought me right here - working with great clients like you. So there's that!
Are you a forever student? I am, and I suspect you are too. I have a Digital Marketing Strategy and Execution certification from New York University's School of Continuing and Professional Studies. I also love what I learned this summer with Marie Forleo’s Copy Cure, Shopify for business and Live Richer Academy’s email marketing guru Latisha Styles. If you ain’t learning, well, you ain’t learning, right?
So, I trust I answered some of the questions you may have about my can-do, aka pedigree. Questions like:
Yes, on all accounts. And yes, I can help your online brand be as dope as you are offline, because helping brands be dope is my thing, from Brooklyn to Paris to Johannesburg.
But most importantly, I’m a mom, a friend and an intrepid joy-wrangler.
