Stargazer Creative is a women-owned marketing and design agency. We focus on bringing bright ideas to life, so your business shines above your competition. We specialize in branding, websites, social media, and promotional merchandise. I started Stargazer in April 2018 after an extensive marketing career and absolutely love being an entrepreneur.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

My clients love that we handle the tasks they don't love, whether creating & executing a marketing campaign or planning & posting on social media. We swoop in, work as part of their teams, and free up time so they can do what they do best - their jobs!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

If it doesn't light you up, don't do it! Focus on what makes you happy and what you do best. Outsource or let others help you with the rest. When you focus on your strengths, you will be a force in your field.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I launched my business on April Fool's Day. I was getting a divorce, didn't have a job, and just moved into a new apartment (with no steady paycheck). It seemed logical. Haha.
