I’m a trained graphic designer (RISD ‘08) who went to work at a branding firm in NYC and discovered I had a knack and passion for the business side of the creative industry.

So, I made the leap and worked my way up to hold dual titles as the Director of Client Services & the Director of Operations, learning how to run a design studio and creative business along the way. 

When I started noticing that so many talented designers & creatives were struggling to make it in the creative business simply because no one had ever taught them how to run a business, I knew I had to do something.

Now, I have the best job ever - I work with creative entrepreneurs to build thriving and sustainable businesses.

Whether the goal is to be their own boss, live a location independent life as a business of one, or start bringing on and growing a team - I walk along side my clients to make sure they have the right plans, systems, and tactics to meet (and exceed!) their goals. 

When I’m not working with my amazing clients, I’m probably chasing my two little kiddos around or sneaking away for a date night with my husband!

I split my time between my hometown and the beach. It's the perfect balance between home and my happy place - something I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid!

So, if you’re a creative entrepreneur who is overwhelmed and looking to streamline and organize your business, or maybe your even struggling to make this whole business thing work, send me a message! I’d love to work with you and help you make your business dreams a reality!

It has been an amazing ride, pushing myself to think more on my business. The motivation and constant feedback has opened many doors for me now that I previously didn’t know existed. I feel more confident and worthy of my work after these sessions.

Before I worked with Erin, I felt overwhelmed and disorganized running my growing business.
