New Yorker calling Los Angeles home. Jazz music lover. Coffee addict. Yoga enthusiast. Adventure seeker. Illustrator at heart. There's a lot more to me than just my profession, and you can say the same for yourself.

When I started running Authentic Life Media full-time in 2018, hustle mentality went into overdrive and I  found that I was doing the most for my clients - and the least for myself. Originally designed as a service-based agency and labor of love,  Authentic Life Media is growing just as I am personally. 

I created this new platform as a big sister support system for any individual looking to break into the wild world of social media and entrepreneurship. While the word 'authentic' often gets overused these days, staying true to yourself will be your secret sauce from going from daydream to dream life with your true passions and goals at the forefront. Through this community, I'll teach you how to incorporate authenticity into your brand strategy through free guides, templates, blog posts, and more -- helping to prevent you from making some unnecessary mistakes. 

Let's thrive together. Browse our agency services and send me an email to book a brand consultation.  Start a conversation on social media below - I can't wait to connect with you!
