Brand Ambassador

You want to take your business to the next level, but you’re not sure what the next step is.

You’re constantly trying to do more with less, without sacrificing quality and results.

There are so many moving parts in a successful business, and you’re so busy it’s hard to identify and prioritize where to start. 

You want to plan for the future, but you’re barely surviving the present. There is a better way, and you don’t have to go it alone.

I’m Kate
I’m here to help.


With over 20 years of industry experience and relationship building I’m a recognized leader in brand, strategy, sales, marketing & events.  I have led teams to success in B2B, B2C and non- profits, while streamlining processes for optimal efficiency. Inspiring teams to exceed goals while nurturing exceptional client relationships is my forte. I influence the influencers and build team culture while creating strong brand ambassadors.
 My goal is to help you live your best life at work, at home, and in everything that you do.


1) Connect

Schedule a brief introductory call where we’ll discuss your current challenges & vision and see if we’re a good fit to collaborate.

2) Create a Plan

We develop and walk you through a tailor made solution based on your unique needs and goals that gives you the roadmap for success. 

3) Achieve Results

You define what success looks like, personally and professionally. We help you get there and see ROI while maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

You don’t want to just survive…

You want to THRIVE


The current climate has caused many of us to really examine what we do, what’s meaningful to us, and how we continue to grow business in an unstable economy. 2001 and 2008 were warm-ups for 2020 and 2021. Physically separated from our teams and clients, it is essential to adapt to this new reality.
I can help you and your teams with staying productive, healthy & setting boundaries, as well as not getting into a funk (or snapping out of it), and scheduling yourself to make the most of the time.
