How long have you been a Boston Business Women’s Member?

2+ years

Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I was born and raised on Prince Edward Island Canada. Came to the USA in the late 90's to be a part of the dot com scene!

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I have a background and education in PR and journalism. I love to write, but realized that writing was not my calling. I started designing websites in the early 90s and found my calling. I've worked for various companies in my younger days, such as CBS Interactive, but I've had my own agency Ladybugz.com for almost 20 years. This was a perfect career for having a family and while I worked full-time I grew my business enough to make it a full-time gig. About 6 years ago I decided to scale my agency and soon became a 5 person operation specializing in web design + digital marketing. Four years ago my company merged with another B2B digital agency where I helped to scale to an over 7 figure company. I am now back out on my own pursuing my passion, which is back to helping B2C companies, and smaller companies where I can really make a difference. Especially after this Covid-19 and cultural shift, I now want to go back to helping the people that helped me starting out.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

Our clients would say we are the best agency they have ever worked with! We've spent many years helping all kinds of companies and businesses grow. From small dental chains, and hospitality businesses to pharmaceutical, biotech, and high-tech we've had success in all verticals where growth is needed. We love taking things to a new level, both on the website and the digital marketing side. I am known from trying out of the box marketing tactics other agencies won't try. But you never know until you FAIL ūüėČ

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Stop focusing on what you can't do and focus on what you can do!

What’s your favorite book?

Anything Dr. Joe DeSpenza

What’s your secret weapon?

I live by all things Google, Google Apps, Google Calendar, Google Docs

What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying it in your career or business?

I was featured on the cover and a full page in the Boston Business Journal's 2020 Book of Lists for the work I did at the B2B agency where I was a minority partner.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Just to not stress, all things come in their own due time.

How do you like to spend your free time?

With my kids and boyfriend in the outdoors anywhere, hiking, walking locally, and exploring. I also play a little music and like to antique and decorate.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I'm born and bred from Prince Edward Island, Canada, the home of Anne of Green Gables. Like many people, I came to the US to live the American dream.
