Leading classes, workshops, and unconference-style get-togethers is something I absolutely love. It’s so energizing to be in a room with dedicated, smart people who care about their work and their community, and to see the synapses lighting up and creative sparks flying.
I do that kind of thing in person and online.
If you would like me to come bring my marketing insights and action-oriented approach to your school, professional association, event, or other community hub, I’d love to start that conversation. Just send me a note via my contact form and we’ll take it from there.
A View Back: PULSE Unconference
Last September marked the debut of the PULSE Unconference on innovation and collaboration in holistic healthcare. It brought together a stellar community, sparked conversations on new business models, health justice, authentic marketing, and pathways for collaboration within the field and beyond.
It was extraordinary.
You can read a bit more about the event here, meet some of the innovators and collaborators that came together here, here, and here. And if you are interested in joining forces with me to make PULSE happen again, let’s talk.

What people thought:
Your workshop gave me a new perspective on marketing. I think your approach is unique, and unlike any other I had come across so far. Especially your suggestions on radiating outward from your core beliefs really make sense as a way of staying connected to myself to market in an authentic way. I also feel that you’re really good at listening to people and pulling out threads for them to pursue or look at some more as well as offering concrete suggestions. And you seem to have a wealth of information at your fingertips! – Moline, yoga studio owner, Portland
I am seeing a ripple effect in my business from my outlook to my revenue already, just from the different approach, and refining of my objectives that came from listening to Andrea. – LMT, Eugene, OR
Your marketing seminar was stellar, I really learned so much and think your approach to helping practitioners find their own way of marketing is very cool. Renee
The information was to the point and easy to grasp. You gave us some great examples and many ideas. It was a great workshop and I got a lot out of it. – Stephanie, acupuncturist, Portland
I feel less daunted by marketing after the workshop. I can see now that it can be fun and the idea that less is more is appealing and reassuring to me. – Jennifer, yoga teacher and holistic nutrition consultant, Portland
Leaving with a plan in hand was cool! – Michelle, LMT, Portland
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge this weekend. It gave me more direction as to where I need/want to be. Portland yoga teacher.
