THE EXECUTIVE TEAM
leaders of the pack.
Founder, Chief Mischief Maker
Cleveland-born but NC-rooted.
A story-teller and moment-protector. Spark-ignitor and serial-entrepreneur.
At my core, I have an advocate heart and get ‘3-lattes-fired up’ when surrounded by people trying to make dreams a reality.
Im an extroverted-introvert
A short girl with a tall mouth
Ideas set my soul on fire
In arriving maverick-style bearing ‘whiskey, weapons a shovel and a plan.’
If you cant handle the truth we will mostly never be best friends
It is our ‘job’ to embolden those around us
It is perfectly okay to be “bossy.” (Especially if the ‘y’ is silent)
I left the corporate ’15-year golden handcuffs’ for camera straps and the launching of entrepreneurial ships and I am at my absolute best when surrounded by fellow fearless and fiery game-changers.
More of my ideas have “failed” than succeeded. (But the ones that have stood —make me joyous, and proud, and pay our mortgage payments consistently.)
I intend to use every. damned. crayon. in the box.
Co-Director of Wordsmithery
It used to bother me. Not so much anymore. (Ditto for so many things.)
I love kids… but have none of my own.
I am a litigator… who hates conflict.
I have pushed myself and stretched myself more than ever before.
Director of Event Magic
NC Born- but Mississippi blood runs thru my veins (both parents went to High School together and grew up 10 minutes apart)
Travel is in my soul
More than an event planner. I consider myself a strategic thinker!
Create artistry and fulfill visions — not because it’s trendy
Badass with a touch of glam (I gave myself permission to be who I am and won’t apologize for it!)
I make bold moves
When not in heels I’m in sneakers. -I’m a tomboy who loves to dress up.
I’ve been an athlete since the age of 10 and I’m convinced that I sweat glitter.
Left the corporate world after 12 years and haven’t looked back.
I am creating my OWN lane
Director of Doing Good Things
I am that Unicorn. The one that grew up in Charlotte and tells you about how things used to be.
My mom always tells me that my best quality is that I am so passionate and my worst quality is that I am SO passionate.
I love my community and everyone in it.
I want people to realize and surpass their potential and understand that no obstacle is too big to overcome.
I believe in small steps.
I believe in persistence.
I believe in doing the right thing always.
I believe I can fly. I believe I can touch the sky.
I am very much on my first wind in every way possible. Everything I’m doing is new and exciting and I am loving every second of it except for the seconds where I’m scared out of my mind.
I love what my life has become because I went out on my own and I love all of the ways I get to connect with the people around me.
I am an entrepreneur. I know passion because I live it every day.
