Meet The Bossy Bees

Just a few times in life you bump into another person whose energy jives with yours in a fun and creative way. We have so much in common and yet we are so different, which you’ll see makes the work more interesting and joyous.

We love brainstorming and building ideas that capture the “AHA!” factor. We help you discover your own strengths that have been waiting for you this whole time through honest self-reflection, a humorous look at failure and success, and revealing avenues designed to spark conversation. Our journey together is meant to build the understanding and confidence needed to break free from the things holding us back.

We’re here to help you recognize all that you’ve accomplished. For all the times you were told you didn’t have what it takes or that you just aren’t ready, we know you are. Let’s uncover that skill and potential.


Join us for our weekly chat where we open up to discuss experiences that were incredibly joyous or had us doing a double-take and asking, “Did that just happen?” 


Explore the jungles of work, life, love, relationships, and parenting. We invite you to go with us on this journey as we try to figure out how to succeed at work and care for and love our families and friends. 


Learn to discover your strengths and recognize your experience and expertise. We will help you find your strengths, turn failures into successes, and reveal the potential that you already have. Our journey together is meant to build the understanding and confidence needed to break free from the narratives holding us back.

The Visionary

“Hand me a blank sheet of paper and let’s build something beautiful.”

I believe great ideas are generated by imagination and good communication. When you build a solid trust between team members, you have built an idea engine. Innovation is rarely about a single idea or a single person. Innovation comes from many ideas created from many brilliant people working together.

My mission is to work with clients to plant seeds for the future of the business; innovation is always in the future! I am passionate about making improvements and creating positive change. When this passion collaborates with fellow innovators,

I studied and started my career in Marketing. I went back to school for an M.Ed in Instructional Design. My professional experience ranges from non-profit, to large enterprise. I feel most at home in the Small Business sector where innovation can positively impact not only the organization, but the surrounding community.

The Mastermind

“I’m drawn to the big picture. My instincts want tangible ways to get there and I find myself plotting from point A to point B.”

It is often the small nudges, consistent good work, and dedication that brings the desired change most organizations seek. There is joy for me in helping clients see that their goals are attainable, helping put a plan in place, and driving to attain them.

My experience and expertise in developing and managing learning programs gives me a great perspective on what works to reach users. Working with a variety of industries and organizations of all sizes, I am able to share practices and strategies with client’s top of mind concerns.

My MS in Adult Learning and certification for the Project Management Professional (PMP) are resources that I use daily to analyze situations, develop creative solutions, and make a plan to implement. Marketing brings a combination of opportunities that I’m passionate about: diving into a new subject matter, clear concise design, and working with technology.

Statement on faith: Called into antiracist work
