Could your business use a brand boost? Are you thinking of starting a new business but aren’t sure how to make it stand out in the marketplace? Do you need assistance with communications strategy and creative?
As a brand strategist and marketing consultant, I work with businesses and personal brands to create unique messaging that resonates with your audience.
If your business could use some strategic thinking and new ideas or help with ongoing communications, I’d love to connect. Thinking differently is what I do and I love to see businesses grow to become who they were meant to be. A brand is the soul of the business so authenticity, relevancy, and creativity are important for hitting your target and growing your brand.

With a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Oklahoma, I quickly landed in the creative services department at KFOR-TV, which was a blend of PR, marketing and promotions. I loved the variety of the work and that started a long career in branding, marketing, and advertising, including owning my own boutique branding firm BrainWorks Advertising in 2001. My partner and I sold that company in 2005 and I started a consulting firm that has been going strong since.
In 2021, I rebranded my business as Yay Dude! to include a celebrations community focused on promoting small businesses and events and happenings in OKC where we can celebrate and grow our community.
I’ve branded two hundred businesses and products, including clients like the Oklahoma City Zoo (More to see from A-Z), The Oklahoma Trails (Totally native. Totally wild.) Southwestern Oklahoma State University (The focus is you.) and naming companies like Seventy Seven Energy (formerly Chesapeake Oilfield Supply) and dozens of other small businesses in nearly every category.
