Design Thinker | Nonprofit Founder | Yoga Instructor | Special Needs Mom

Remarkably, all of these things connect, serve and support each other in unexpected ways ultimately bringing a healthy balance and unique perspective to the lives of of those I serve.

I'm at my best when I am creating value and emotional connections for everyone I interact with. This holds true for my work brand and design consulting, teaching yoga, nonprofit work as well as being a stepmom to two teens and a biological Mom to a kiddo with Special Needs. I seek opportunities and experiences that make a difference in the lives of the people I serve. I'm grateful and honored to help facilitate extraordinary human beings that do and produce extraordinary things. I continue to be inspired by all the brilliant and talented people, clients, agencies and nonprofits I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with.

I grew up in a western suburb of Chicago called St. Charles, but have lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota since 1996 when I came up here to attend Gustavus Adolphus College. I recently bought a house in Minnetonka, MN where I live with my husband, Tim Brunelle, his 12 and 13 year old boys, our son #FelixNeptune and our Australian Shepherd, Dutch.
