About me

It’s App-ee-aah-jay. In case you were wondering.

 

That’s me there. 

Recovering perfectionist and people pleaser. 

I’m not great in front of a camera, but I could organise the hell out of your business, and create a winning brand identity for you too. 
I always thought I’d love crafting with my kids. Turns out I hate it, but love them (obvs) so I count my lucky stars that I get to do this thing I love and still spend time with them.

‘Un-muddler’ isn’t a word.

But it does flow through in all the work I do.

Whether I’m helping someone get organised, or un-muddling the vision for their brand to effectively convey their message.

I guess you could say I’m a business & brand strategist. But un-muddler sounds more fun to me. 

I’ve been running a business in some form for the past 6 years. Up until 2017, I ran a stationery business which I sold it to a lovely fellow Noths business owner. I spent 5 years learning about advertising at an out-of-home media company, and combined with a design background, and a husband in brand marketing, what I do now feels like just the sweet spot. 

My lovely customers are my inspiration, there are so many amazing creative people I get to work with and I am so grateful for that. What I really want is to help them be less stressed about everything they have to do for their business while taking care of themselves at the same time.
