Sparks are Flying.

At age twelve, I mailed marketing suggestions to the Gap and Coca Cola. Unbeknownst to me at the time, those letters were the first sparks in a lifelong passion: helping others create and inspire.

 

With a career that spans event management, marketing and technology, I come alive when working with others in crafting a brighter future for our world.

 

I've hosted rock stars, professional athletes and leading tech brands in events ranging from 6 participants to 1.8 billion viewers. Whether it's the Olympic Games or a karaoke night, my goal is clear: I want to work with innovative, team-focused, values-driven people and organizations to create memorable events and content.

Pivoting to Online Courses

Clear Sky Meditation & Study Foundation

 

Objective: The majority of our revenue was generated via in-person retreats and events. In the face of Covid-19, our objective was to generate alternate revenue streams and maintain connection with existing clients. 

Actions: Worked in tandem with the Board Chair and Business Development team to develop and market an online Covid support group that would maintain connection with our clients and create new entry-points in the funnel for potential clients. 

Results: In less than two-weeks from the start of the initial Covid lockdowns, we ran our first support call, which hosted over 120 participants.

Art Class with Sarah Brayer

Clear Sky Meditation & Study Foundation:

 

Objective: While hosting a weekend event with several long-term clients, the Saturday evening time-slot called for a fun, community-based activity (such as watching a movie or playing a team-building game). Yet, I wanted something out of the box and engaging for the group 

 

Actions: Several members are interested in the arts, so I contacted renown artist Sarah Brayer and invited her to join us from Japan via Zoom and lead us in a surprise painting workshop. 

Results: A memorable evening for all involved. 

Product Launch
