Marketing Strategy/Planning - audience mapping, marketing mix, content management and strategy, marketing planning facilitation, how to work with destination marketing organizations

Ideation - people will tell you I'm great in a room where there's a problem to solve 

Creative Strategy / Storytelling - helping you figure out your unique point of view, experiences and how to tell that story to the world

Writing & Content Development I actually started as an editor and writer for Disney, then moved into copywriting, content and communications.  When they realized I was good at strategy and managing a team, my career blossomed into other fields--but writing is at the heart of everything I do.  I'd love to write for your destination or product.

Public Speaking -  It's true, I was a theater kid.  And I still love to share what I've learned with a crowd, whether in front of a corporate board or an audience of 2,000.  I can speak on destination marketing best practices, storytelling, how to build a successful brand and more.  Let me know what you have in mind.
