I’m a Personal Branding Expert and founder of Brandstrom – A Personal Branding Agency, National Speaker, Serial Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, Event Host and Premiere Personal Branding Mentor who leads Personal Branding & Marketing Seminars, LinkedIn Local Events, Influencer Events & Masterminds.
I work extensively with CEOs, business professionals and entrepreneurs to build authority, amplify their message, monetize their expertise and impact millions by transforming their personal brands.
I come from humble beginnings in a small town in California with nothing more than perseverance, a laptop and a DREAM.
From growing up poor, which led to feeling like an outcast, different & lonely and being bullied in school, to losing my father when I was 13 years years old and my then boyfriend at 19 years of age, I had nowhere to turn and no place to go but forward.
As a result of watching my family financially and emotionally struggle and not having anyone to guide me through life, I made a promise to myself at the age of 15 while lying in bed feeling broken, alone and afraid that I’d create a different life. At that moment, I was liberated as I knew I no longer had to live the life I was dealt.
I committed to living a life full of happiness and success while helping others find their “why” and significance. However, I thought education was the only path to success.
Starting in 2010, while working a 9-to-5, I began learning the elements of branding as I wanted to build my own brand.
After completing a lifelong personal goal – a Master’s Degree in Business Administration – in 2014, I STILL felt unfulfilled, bored and stuck while working in the corporate world as my potential was limited by my job description.
My 9-to-5 left me frustrated at my wasted potential of wanting to empower and help people. I was overworked, underpaid, and ultimately unsatisfied as I was building someone else’s dream rather than pursuing my own.
