Digitally Grounded works with service-based businesses looking to transform their brochure style web presence into a digital experience that connects them to the right clients.


The Beginning

When I started, I knew I wanted to do work I enjoyed that allowed me to use ALL of my creativity, strategic thinking, and unique skill set to help self proclaimed “non techy” business owners win online.

I’ve always wanted to be a resource for other small business owners and freelancers whenever I could.

“I want to help the service-based businesses that make me light up. From the Fortune 500 companies giving back to their communities, to the solopreneur in growth mode who is hiring thier first team members.”

I began my entrepreneurial journey as a high school teen when painting and selling wooden furniture at a local shop in downtown Troy, NY. I did that for three years and then moved on to continue my studies as a classically trained artist and illustrator at Sage College of Albany.

I started my first design business, AK Design, while still in college.

“I landed a big name client while still in college and I was so happy to work with them, I went to the county clerk and got a DBA. The rest is history.”

In the years that passed, I worked with Cengage Learning, The American Museum of Natural History, YWCA,  The Susan G. Komen Foundation, WAMC Northeast Public Radio, and many more.

I’m married with two children, and have a continuous zeal for learning, creating, and reading. Some of my favorite authors are Jim Rohn, Napoleon Hill, and Alan Dibb.

“Success is nothing more than a few disciplines practiced every day. Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.”
