The Explorer brand archetype for coaches and creatives

People with strong Explorer archetypes are on a journey of self-discovery. They feel the urge to explore new places and get into nature, in an attempt to find their authentic selves.

I'm obsessed with branding, and have been doing it for +15 years. First, working with luxury brands at L'Oreal, then at an agency with  some big-name clients. But when it came to creating my own brand - it was a lot harder. Too many ideas and inspiration. Too much confusion and overwhelm. Until I discovered brand archetypes, and got the beautiful clarity and direction I needed.

Today I love helping women create timeless, clutter-free brands that focus on the essentials.  And that give you the confidence of knowing exactly how to grow your brand and businesses. 

And I work in English and Spanish - hablemos!
