be authentic - in business and life

I am first and foremost a mom of two (one adult with special needs, and one neurotypical teen) and the wife of Joel Eckman. Joel and I started our own digital marketing agency in 2014, after years of partnering in advertising in Lexington Kentucky, and Ocala Florida.

We moved our family to the Twin Cities Minnesota to be closer to family and raise our kids in the Midwest.

I'm just a strong-willed, outspoken, outgoing, southern girl living in the Midwest for the love of a good man. As my photos will attest, I change my hairstyle frequently.

I am a problem solver, I love organization, checking items off my to-do list, and creating spreadsheets. There has never been a problem that a spreadsheet couldn't solve. I am a planner and fixer. All of these attributes make me a gifted project manager. I handle projects from the beginning twinkle-in-your-mind stage to the very end: launch. 

Have a project you're thinking about and don't know where to start? Have another problem you need help with? Fill out my contact form and let's chat about it! 

**I share a lot about our family life on my social media pages so if you're interested, go give 'em a follow. I talk about our life with our adult son who lives with a developmental disability (he functions at a toddler level), our neurotypical sassy & theater-loving teen daughter, and our two dogs, Abby and Beau.

WTH is Mom Camp?! What’s Mom Camp, you ask? Well, it all started last year when I decided I was getting these friends of mine together for a girls’ trip if it was the last thing I did. I had been begging them for what seems like decades to come visit me (I’m the one…

Empty Nest Be Damned.

Running Errands and Dinner Out

I love this lightweight tank for running around town – this particular one I purchased for $68 at Evereve. I’ve linked a similar, less expensive option below. It transitions to an evening out with the hubby quite easily. TTS I paired it with my fave Good American jeans (on sale at Amazon!) and the easiest-to-slip-into…
