educator + speaker

As an entrepreneur and stationery designer for over a decade, I have been blessed to not only work with hundreds of couples on their wedding stationery, but also as an educator for other stationers. As well as a speaker at conferences and seminars for other creative business owners. I would love to see how we can work together!
