How I can help you
As someone with over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry, the last 8 as an Executive Chef running restaurants, I can help small lodging and restaurant businesses grow their marketing, streamline their operations, enhance their customer service and boost revenue.
In 2003 I started my own business working with bed & breakfasts, restaurants and other small businesses doing graphic design, social media, computer and social media instruction, and hospitality consulting. Currently I focus on teaching digital marketing and social media, and I am a keynote and educational speaker at conferences and association events around the country. I also work part-time as the Marketing Director for the Association of Hospitality Professionals (ALP) formerly known as PAII, the largest non-profit national bed and breakfast association in the US. I am very involved with Toastmasters International and am a DTM X2 (Distinguished Toastmaster Award). I love helping small business grow and succeed. In 2003 SCORE helped me start my business and I think it is a wonderful resource for people starting their businesses as well as people who have been in business that just need a bit of a helping hand.
