After 15 years in luxury hotels, and a home staging business somewhere in the middle, I was staring down an abyss of uncertainty. That said, I'm not afraid of change. So, when lockdown started I gave myself the space to listen to what my heart really wanted. And that was to create.
I opened up my first Etsy shop selling Canva templates, which evolved as I was approached for freelance work. I took some online courses and without realizing, a business was taking shape.
Time to get serious! I had some WordPress experience from my first business. This was a clear choice as an unmatched blogging powerhouse. But as a design tool it was a tech nightmare. I could see in my head exactly how I wanted my website to be yet I was frustrated as hell that I couldn’t translate that onto the page.
As a result I hated my website. I was so embarrassed to send anyone to it. So, I didn’t, and my business suffered.
As I put the phone down, it suddenly hit me…I'd been laid off
it began with a pandemic

As I’m scrolling through Pinterest, sipping on my (now cold) coffee, I’m thinking, is this for real? I can keep my blog in WordPress and design the front end of my website without code? FINALLY! The website I've always dreamed of.
That was the exact moment it all changed for me. When I discovered Showit and started owning my story.
All those years in hotels have taught me a thing or two about the human psyche. I love exploring the intersection where design, technology, and human connection collide. I believe that with this strategy, your marketing assets can become timeless and scalable for years to come.
We’re a great fit if you already have a strong sense of your brand mission, values, and message. I can put all of that to work with beautiful, strategic design that will elevate your online presence so you can show up and serve doing what you love.

Now a Canadian Permanent Resident, I started my home staging business and went PT at the hotel.
Moved from England to Vancouver, Canada on what was only supposed to be a 12 month thing.
My hotel career started to take off with my BA (hons) in Hospitality Business Management.
Hindsight really is 2020 (the year, that is) and in a way, being laid off saved me from burnout and put a lot of things into perspective.
I'm proud of where I've been, but I'm even more excited for where I'm going. And now you get to come along with me.
