Thanks for stopping by.
Born and Raised
Born in Flint, Michigan to a young single mother, I grew up in the coal mining mountains of Southeast Kentucky before moving with my family to go to high school in central Florida.
I then attended a small engineering school in Chicago on scholarship before returning back homesick to the University of Florida — and ultimately ending up in Colorado on my own at 19.
The web as we know it didn’t exist when I was in college, so I taught myself web programming in the aisles of Barnes & Noble.
With some basic skills under my belt, I built websites and put together a ‘mortgage education’ portal at Mortgage101.com that ranked #1 for ‘mortgage’ for over 10 years.
Digital Marketing Experience
When Google became a household name, a new service industry emerged around PPC and SEO.
So, I created Volume Nine and formed a partnership with Booyah Advertising that landed the agency on several fastest-growing lists for over a decade.
From initial roots in SEO to social media emerging as a new channel, I found innovative ways to grow brands including buying a local boutique agency to better serve clients.
The Next Chapter
After 15 years at the helm of Volume Nine, I decided it was time to switch gears and work directly with brands.
My work will focus on putting a marketing foundation in place that will improve the team’s capabilities to execute campaigns to grow their revenue.
I’ve lived in Denver since the 90s and helped raise two incredible kids. My son Tyler graduated CU-Boulder and lives in Aspen, working on the mountain. My daughter MJ is an honor roll student/athlete at Arapahoe HS.
When not working, I like to get outdoors, work out, bet on sports, read everything, sit around the pool, and visit new places when not hanging out with my partner and her four children (so yes, that’s six children altogether).
Through all the ‘ups and downs’ over the years, my true passion of helping people move toward their business dreams and goals has never wavered.
I’ve found there’s a right way to set up a foundation that builds success for almost any brand and I am very hands-on in the pursuit of success.
