Working with small businesses comes naturally to me. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs who have run all manner of shops, stores, schools, hotels, property management and more. After completing my degree with honours in Marketing and Communication from uOttawa in 2008, I went on to work for some of the most incredible, innovative, independent woman business owners.

Inspired and excited, I started my own business in 2014 – Cardamom & Cloves, Ottawa’s first dedicated spice shop. Within the first year, C&C was exclusivity run online and I was scrambling to learn the intricacies of social media algorithms, product photography and editing while staying current on the latest app.

For 5 years I worked tirelessly to have customers all over the country, build a dedicated list of monthly subscribers and an excited, engaged group of social media followers who promoted and helped spread the love of our products to others in our target market.

In 2019, I sold my beloved first business but continue my love affair with entrepreneurs, small business and social media marketing. I’m in a unique position to understand the demands and challenges of the small business owner, with a set of skills to help you grow your business and brand online.

Social media marketing is vital in reaching and cultivating clients in our modern life, but it is also time consuming and frustrating. I can help create original content posts for all social media platforms, product photography and custom videos. Together we can identify your ideal market and get you engaging with more potential customers on a daily basis.
