My Money $tory
Not too many years ago I was probably like you- behind on my bookkeeping, flying by the seat of my financial pants, and clueless about how to actually make my money work in my business.
Even though I worked as a professional bookkeeper, small business financial consultant, and financial educator for 8+ years, there was a big difference between telling people how to manage money and actually doing it. I know first-hand how daunting the money stuff can be!
I also know about the money shame and the pressure to pretend like you have it all together…
…to put on a front of what a successful business is supposed to look like in order the hide the messy stuff. Because, let’s be real, women who own businesses are not allowed to be messy. It took years, but I did the emotional and practical work to transform my business finances into the badass system it is today. It isn’t perfect because I’m not perfect. Our relationship with money is a lifelong process- it doesn’t go from stinky cabbage to cotton candy sprinkles in just a few months. BUT, for the first time in my life, my money and I are pretty damn good. And I feel really awesome about that.
Money is an emotional process .
…and we often forget that what we need most is to be kind to ourselves in our financial journey. So this site is about kindness. It’s about loving all your dollars (the big ones and the small). It’s about taking action in service of building a connection with your money, your business, and ultimately with the part of yourself that’s really really good with money.
I live in San Francisco with my wife and our muppet rescue dog.

I’m a performance artist and produce a show that explores social myths about the body through stories of resistance and reclamation
