“We choose to work together because we work together well.
We have common goals, common perspectives, and our results reflect our amazing synergy.”
I am the BOSS at BOSS. I am the owner and the glue that holds this ship together. I wear many hats at BOSS but I am generally the first person you will meet and talk to and will be with you through the whole process. From social media and web marketing, Web Design and Development, branding, training, SEO, reputation management, I pretty much have my hands in it all. My specialty is WordPress development, themes and designs and building online marketing strategies.
AD in Communications, BA in Journalism with a double minor in Photojournalism and Technical Communications. Published writer and photographer. Social Media Enthusiast. (don’t call me Guru) Dog and strange cat lover. Board member, Kailua Chamber of Commerce and chair of the e-commerce committee. Professional dancer in my bedroom. Always right, and sometimes funny.
MEET my MINIONS
At one time it was just me and my dog and my computer. But a lot of hard work and good intentions has made BOSS grow and I now have a great team behind me. They are known to work at night, sometimes coming out to feast under the full moon. But mainly they stay indoors, working tirelessly. They live, breathe and love working for me. When they sleep, the sleep upside down, but always with one eye open and on the job.
