Brittany is a marketing consultant who’s spent the last 6 years helping small Black & Brown businesses throughout the Chicagoland area and nation build and grow marketable and profitable businesses.

Her professional experience and foundation for her marketing and branding knowledge stems from her background in advertising. Brittany has spent the past 6+ years of her career touching brands like MillerCoors, Corona and Modelo, Chevrolet, and the list goes on.

Today, Brittany uses the knowledge she’s acquired to help small business owners develop strategies to solidify a favorable reputation in the hearts of their most valuable clients, while acquiring new clients month over month to ensure their potential profit pipelines don’t run dry.
