About me
I draw connections between design, content production, executive production, strategy, and creative direction. What I enjoy doing the most is teaching and inspiring people on their personal and professional paths. I'm also an astrologist, good cook, workout enthusiast, cat mom and super organized.
⊙ Sagittarius ↑ Cancer ☾ Pisces

At Freela School, I'm responsible for the business executive strategy and creative team direction. Also, I mentor creative freelancers and manage our community to create a sense of belonging and professional appreciation. I'm currently retired as a designer, but I make exceptions if the work purpose speaks to my essence.
