I love to help my clients shine a light on what is important and things that matter. My passion, coupled with my branding, marketing, and advertising experience, along with my aptitude for efficient planning and processes, makes me uniquely qualified to help companies grow their revenues through branding.
As a little girl, I loved connection, efficiency, and organization. I would run to my friend's houses, plotting the fastest course so I could get to the fun faster. I would help them finish chores to more quickly get to what was important,
Starting my career in medical-surgical sales I learned about business and customer service on the front line and realized how crucial a strong brand is to the sales team. I saw having a strong brand made selling that much easier.
Wanting to better understand strategy, I moved into advertising account management where I spent a number of years working with brands of all sizes in Dallas, North Carolina, and San Francisco.
In the last fifteen years, I have maximized my strategic interests and strengths in growing businesses by focusing on branding. and marketing. I still have that drive for the most efficient and effective process and path by working with my clients to distill their DNA and find the most effective way of communicating and connecting with their customers. Clients have given me names like the "Tough Cookie" and "Spreadsheet Queen, "
The brand is the foundation of any business. Without that firm foundation and a brand strategy, companies can easily lose their way. Clients who develop a branding strategy just achieve better results.

What people say
Laurie has been a tireless champion for my new brand.
Fondly described as the Queen of Spreadsheets, she kept the entire project on track throughout the process with a lot of different parts moving at the same time. She also brought great people onto the team whenever we needed them.
She has the courage to keep coming back to important topics that I sometimes want to ignore, and as a result, we've come up with a brand that is far beyond what I originally imagined. It's been an amazing process and
I would recommend Laurie to anyone who wants to do a high-quality rebrand.
