You and your potential customers/followers are looking for each other.
I can help to connect you by growing your business in a direction that fosters an engaging and valuable relationship with your online audience.

Shine a light on your business’s personality.

The Internet has an overwhelming amount of stuff and your business needs to stand out from your competition and inspire trust in your brand. Whether you are starting an online store, trying to grow your online community or promoting a sale/product, attracting the right audience is an important step to the long term success of any business. 

Empower business owners.

You have the ideas and the ambition, and together we can turn that drive into a plan to grow your business. I won't just build you an online store or email list, but I will show you how to take the reins and guide your business to success. It’s a bit of business coaching and a bit of online services to set you up for your better business.

Collaborative & creative solutions.

The first step we take together is to identify the needs of your customers/followers and the goals of your business. With these in mind, we work together to create a plan to take your business to the next level.

About Me

At the root of everything I do is a love of storytelling. That's why I love helping businesses build their online identity, it’s all about telling a story. Whether it’s building an ecommerce store that represents your values or creating a content marketing plan to grow your online community.

My passion for storytelling has lead me to study filmmaking and journalism, but my love of visual arts inspired me to follow a path as a freelance graphic designer and content creator. As an entrepreneur at heart, I quickly found that my creative skills and art of storytelling was greatly suited for helping businesses build their online personality and presence. Years of following my heart and my talents have lead me to Kelp Forest Commerce.

Why Kelp Forest?

I live in the North Okanagan but I am a Pacific Northwest mermaid at heart. I used to manage a scuba diving shop in Vancouver, and I have spent many hours under the ocean off the coast of British Columbia. The kelp forests have a special place in my heart as a scuba diver, but they also represent a place to foster relationships between the other creatures, like the otter and the urchin. The otter eats the urchin, the urchin eat the kelp, the kelp provides shelter for the otter, who eat the urchin. It’s an ecosystem of different elements depending on one another and benefiting each other, just like an ecommerce or online market.
