About…The Work Part

Chief Sunshine Maker, Shine Bright Marketing

I spent 15 years as the marketing director of SOL Lingerie, a place whose goal was to help women feel good in their bodies. I had the privilege of helping SOL expand to one of the largest and most successful independent lingerie stores in the United States. Building a small business to a ‘big’ small business was exciting, challenging and a never-ending learning process. As the business grew, our marketing needs grew, as well as our marketing options!

In 2016 I started Shine Bright to help women feel good about their business, offering not just marketing strategy, positioning and analytics, but also technical savvy, hand-holding, a global perspective and an East Coast-with-a-smile attitude.

I am passionate about travel, dancing, kindness, voting and sleep. My optimism tends to be contagious. My encouraging nature tends to help people feel good about themselves. I’ve been to 46 countries and counting and I attend Burning Man every year.
