Owner of

Sandbar Social

1. What is the name of your business and can you tell us a little bit more about it?

My business is called Sandbar Social and it is a digital marketing agency that grows fashion, beauty, and health businesses online. We develop, scale and educate businesses to make as much as money as possible by building a brand and community in the digital space.

2. What has been your biggest win as an entrepreneur thus far? 

I believe in working with companies that support a women’s confidence. To me, that might mean inner beauty (health coaches, health products), or outer beauty (fashion/retail and beauty brands). That is why I created Sandbar Social - to bring my skills to a higher purpose and to live a fulfilled life. 

3. Where do you find daily motivation and inspiration? 

Everywhere! I listen to podcast, read blogs, and stay active in social media - I often find trends and patterns that give me inspiration. 

4. What is the best piece of advice you have received and who was it from? 

I think I came across this online, but it was "in order to obtain things you never had, you have to do things you've never done." It has inspired me to keep testing my comfort zone and evolve!


5. What is your morning routine?

Wake up, tongue scraper, drink water, work out, then shower. Followed by inulin powder and green tea and a smoothie - then time to get work.

6. Favorite podcast? 

That is hard! If I had to pick, Him and Her Podcast - The Skinny Confidential. 

7. Something that most people wouldn’t know about you:

I love rabbits, all baby animals really and I am ambidextrous.

8. If you could go back to when you started your company what would you say to yourself? 

Just start and take action - it is okay not to know everything right away, don't be scared!
