About Me : Hello! In 2011, I founded Club Momme, an offline events community for moms, moms-to-be and families that she sold to mom.me in 2015. After the sale, I stayed on through the transition and then left in early 2016 to start my next venture. I currently consult with about 10-15 brands on strategy, influencer outreach and design events to help them create buzz. I assist with digital and social PR, and also manage Instagram for several brands. The heart of my business is producing custom experiential events and connecting / collaborating with influencers and brands. I have a close network of 600+ influencers in Southern California. Finally, I also represent some celebrity and influencer moms for digital deals.
