Speaking + Events

As a seasoned dog lifestyle expert and longtime digital marketing pro, I love sharing my knowledge with passionate audiences. With my diverse background as a model, actress and spokesmodel for over 10 years, I bring a special flair to every conversation. I often speak at conferences and online summits about growing a niche business in the pet industry and how to leverage social media.

Let’s share stories, swap tips and inspire each other at your upcoming event! Looking for a unique, four-legged cameo appearance? My dog Lucy is a certified Therapy Dog and AKC Trick Dog who adds a ton of personality to any event! What about Burt? He’s better at working the room than standing on stage!

Topics I love to talk about

  • Social media marketing for the pet industry
  • Growing your business by niching down
  • Mindset shifts to empower you to pursue a fulfilling career
  • Building a vibrant community within your niche
  • The importance of amplifying women’s voices
