Hi, I’m Marie.
I help purpose-driven entrepreneurs bring their ideas to life in the digital space.

With over 5 years of working experience at small agencies as both an interactive designer and digital strategist, and running my own successful design + strategy business for an additional 5+ years, I’ve learned a few things… the hard way. I’ve moved myself from fumbling freelancer to successful business owner by refining my business systems and processes, expanding my community, and focusing on creating strategic value for my clients. When you create exceptional value for your clients, you command higher rates and make yourself a more valuable asset. Let me help you get there faster.
