lover of love, writing, and food hater of hate, chaos, and stemless wine glasses
I am the president and CEO of K2 Creative – a content, marketing, and branding firm helping small businesses and nonprofits “Make Their Message Matter”. My diverse professional background includes writing and storytelling, PR and communications, team leadership and management, marketing and new business development, and event planning and execution.
A master networker with strong referral partners, I continually go the extra mile for my clients when it comes to press and PR opportunities. I work with many small business clients, but I have found a niche in providing creative copywriting, PR, and marketing services to female business owners, authors, coaches, and speakers.
2020 - the year of necessary changes - for small businesses, nonprofits, and corporations... and when I found the courage to follow my dreams - to start my business and become a published author. I am the creator, project manager, and a contributing author of "Twenty Won", an anthology of 21 female entrepreneurs sharing their stories of business resilience during the global pandemic. (Publishing on April 21, 2021) My chapter, "From Imposter to Inspiration" focuses on how I overcame "imposter syndrome" to start my own business and inspire a group of women to particpate in the Twenty Won book.

Besides a writer and a marketer, I'm also a mom, a wife, a daughter and sister, an aunt and friend, and a type II diabetic. Diagnosed in December 2019, I managed to gain control of my health with smart food choices and exercise - leading to losing over 30 pounds and only requiring insulin injections for just the first four months after diagnosis. In my free time you'll find me writing, cooking, reading food labels, entertaining family and friends, spending time outdoors, walking, cheering on the Steelers, and "picking" at garage sales and antique stores. I live in a little borough called Port Vue, about 12 miles southeast of Pittsburgh with my husband Rob and Yorkie-Poo Mia. My most successful venture to date is raising our two compassionate and intelligent children – Cameron (Kirstyn) and Kayla (Zach).
