A little something about me
I believe I was put on this planet to help people find power in their struggles and stories. This journey began as a journalist and producer for nearly a decade in Los Angeles, but then I realized the story I was too afraid to share was my own. I moved back to my hometown of Minneapolis, where I began discovering my voice in a completely different and much more authentic way, both as a morning radio personality and as a social media over-sharer. The impact of vulnerability sparked connection with my audience like never before, and it was then that I recognized the social responsibility I had to use my influence for GOOD - and in a very big way. I decided to leave radio for marketing at Media Bridge, and I've extended my social media presence (200,000+ followers I affectionately refer to as the "fam" and 10M+ video views) to real-life stages all over the world as a motivational speaker. I also learned that, in order to fulfill my mission of changing lives, I needed to provide the tools, so I founded Made For This, LLC to create motivational merch, share excuse-eliminating materials, and (soon) offer courses and coaching! I'm especially grateful that the qualities that used to make me most insecure now serve as my confidence platform to empower others, which also encourages my partners and clients to be even more inclusive and diverse in their brand stories and advertising efforts. Do you wanna make the world a better place together? Let's freaking go!
