I was born in 1975 in Huntsville, Alabama and spent most of my childhood obsessed with Cuddles, Wonder Woman, the Incredible Hulk, and Hot Wheels. I always wanted to eat at Mullins or Big Ed’s, and I was a boss on a pair of roller skates.
Education and Early Career
As a classic, type A, over-achiever, I graduated high school and college with numerous honors. My degree focus was Constitutional Law and Spanish but I also thoroughly enjoyed Physics, Statistics, Interdisciplinary Studies, and writing my senior thesis on judicial review. After my B.A., I cut my professional teeth at my alma mater, UAH, managing Department of Defense and Department of Justice contracts as well as Humanities grants. Eager to continue learning, I moved to insurance giant, State Farm, in the early 2000s. I dedicated 13 years to the company, helping two star agents reach BIG goals and boost into management and even managed an emergency service provider office with a colleague for 11 months. I helped train and guide several rising agents and also successfully trained and tracked for agency myself, held investments licenses and specialized in commercial insurance and business related planning, insurance, and retirement plans.
Rocket City Mom
In 2013 I decided to shift my professional focus, and brought my business training and sales success to CLL, LLC Consulting. For 6 years, I have dedicated my professional time almost entirely to Rocket City Mom Media Group, helping this hyper-local blog add more than 6 figures in revenue annually!
Family and Fun
In 1999, I married my best friend in the world, and in 2006 we were blessed with twins. Adam, has been a Huntsville City Schools Art Teacher for 20 years. We love to hike together, comb local thrift stores, and patronize local eateries and other businesses. All four of us are smitten with our rescue mutt, Griffin Hockney. We spend a lot of time talking about all of the nifty (and mischievous) things he does.
My professional passion is consulting with local business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and area newbies. My specialties include marketing, brand auditing, social media, client engagement and management, project management, sales and small business structure. My full list of services can be found here.
I am excited to learn more about you and your personal and/or professional goals. Let’s discuss all that North Alabama has to offer!
