It's no secret that I'm a big fan of people. I like most people that crosse my path and for some reason one of the first things that pops into my head when I meet someone new is who I should introduce them to.
You're a designer? My friend Ruthie is a designer! You've lived in Austin your whole life? My friend Nicole has too! You're allergic to gluten? You should meet my friend Maggie! You want to be an Astronaut? You should talk to my friend Alexcia!
That's just how I am. That's just how my mind works. So it should be no surprise to you that I enjoy throwing networky type things. I shy away from saying I throw networking events, because if we're being honest that's not really what I enjoy doing. Networking events can be great, and I like attending them for the most part but what I like putting on myself is a little different.
I like throwing big breakfast parties and inviting a bunch of talented women to come meet each other. My deepest hope is that in a year someone will tell me that they met somewhere at a brunch of mine that they've worked with or that they did an aerial silks class with someone they met at my brunch (I was told this was happening on Sunday!)
The power of working together with someone creative is such a wonderful thing and certainly nothing I ever want to take for granted. I love building community & I love getting to watch people work together. That's why I do what I do-- both to build those relationships with others and to build those relationships with clients & collaborators.
