MEET THE TEAM
We work hard, crazy hard and we love it. We are passionate about what we do and who we do it for. We create thoughtful and relevant partnerships, strategies + revenue-driving pipelines for the most influential companies and brands around.
We are collaborators, creators, connectors and cultivators. One day we stopped wondering “What If”, took the plunge, and said “Why Not”.

Liz is uniquely talented at connecting
people. She just loves getting to know
“y’all”. She’ll ask you a million questions

creates a true relationship built on honesty
and trust. With that deep understanding
she’s able to find unique pathways forward
to meet her customer’s needs. Liz spent
more than 6 years at Rakuten where she
