Aloha! I’m a marketing communications and strategic planning/graphic facilitation specialist with the unique experience of founding and running a non-profit organization from the ground up. I’m also a certified professional coach.
My company, The Good Juju Co., is founded on the idea, that when great minds come together, we can bring good things to life. It starts with a vision, passion and a commitment to doing the work and finding the right team to get it done. From idea to concept, I can help you bring form to your ideas, help you communicate your vision and needs, and energize you and your team as you move forward in success.
As founder of Surfrider Spirit Sessions, I understand the challenges NPOs face. Funding is critical and having a smart plan is essential. Fueled by passion AND a good business strategy, NPOs can thrive. My award-winning book “The Surfer Spirit” helped launch our programs and develop them into a stable 501(c)(3). During my term as ED, I recruited and trained over 250 volunteers, served over 300 youth and raised over 3 million dollars.
As a certified graphic facilitator, I use art as a tool for team-building, brainstorming and strategic planning, I create infographics, vision-mission concept charts and history maps.
I have 25+ years in communications, brand development and consumer/donor acquisition and retention. I’ve worked locally and in top New York ad agencies with Fortune 500 clients and boutique brands, NPOs and state agencies.
My professional credentials include:
- Certified Graphic Facilitator
- Certified Professional Coach
I am the only experienced Certified Graphic Facilitator & Graphic Recorder in Hawaii.
I began working in this innovative field for clients on the mainland, who would fly me over to work with their teams. In the last 5 years, this work has become more in demand locally which has offered me the chance to tap into my local roots and “Hawaiian-ize” our processes and tools. Along with my team, we are the only Facilitation team that can provide finish art from start to finish.
I am passionate about Hawaii, our people, our culture and our environment. All my work revolves around building people and their teams and helping them unlock their potential by seeing their ideas (literally and figuratively) come to life.
I am process oriented and strategic and I find that we are all more creative when we have specific goals, objectives and or parameters. Even defining our goals and objectives can be a challenge but the key is to ask the right questions. I work hard with my clients to help them identify their needs and priorities. Once we have a solid foundation and all the pieces in place, everything can fall into place.
