Hello, I'm Lisa.
As a communication coach, I help high-achieving, heart-centered women who struggle to be seen and heard break through their communication blocks so they can attract and engage their audience by speaking freely.
As a storyteller & creative director, I lead a full-service agency delivering storytelling, branding and content creation for women of influence.
I know this because I lived it. Even though I started telling stories, making presentations and creating content at age 4, it took me 29 more years to find my real voice. I worked hard and did all the "right" things to attract my audience. I wrote hundreds of blog posts, social posts and even some books. I spoke at events and networked faithfully. But I never seemed to be able to grow my "tribe" past a certain size.
In the end, it took a trip to rock bottom and some radical self-reflection to help me break through my blocks and start building my long-term platform. Getting clarity on my mission changed everything. So did learning how to tell my real, raw story in a way that others could relate to.
I don't want you to have to wait so long (or work so hard) to find your voice. No matter where you are today, there's a tribe out there who need your leadership. There's an audience who are truly hungry for your words. And I know from my own experience: you already have what it takes to win their hearts.
As a storyteller, creative director & communication coach, I work with entrepreneurs, creators and makers with big hearts who want to attract a huge audience but feel like they have hit a glass ceiling with engagement. I will help you uncover what is truly blocking your message from igniting the right people. We will remove those blocks and create a story, brand and content to spark a magical connection that opens hearts and doors.
Most coaches operate solo. When you work with me, you get an entire group of women dedicated to your success. I love to surround myself with amazing specialists in every aspect of communication, who can help you create ANYTHING you need to expand your influence. We operate as a creative agency with a foundation in coaching: the perfect mix of heart, mind and action.
Up to 20% of the proceeds from every project go right back to organizations that empower women entrepreneurs, educate them in sustainable business practices and invest in their ventures.
Currently, your partnership supports the Women's Financial Wellness Center in Pewaukee, Wisconsin: an organization that made a difference in my life during a critical (and financially vulnerable) transition.
Founder Rhonda Noordyk shares the intentions and vision for The Center:
Uncommon Universes Press LLC launched with a solid business plan and focus, but had a hard time articulating what that focus was ... Lisa’s thorough questions, adaptable guidance, and passion for branding encouraged us to get to the heart of our business culture and personal passions, which led to an effective strategy guide that enabled us to truly tell our story in a relatable, coherent way. Working with Lisa was one of the best decisions our business made.”
- Janeen Ippolito, fearless leader & publisher at Uncommon Universes Press
My biggest struggle was making sure that I was always sharing from my story, so that I could share my multiple streams of income in a non-salesy and magnetic way. Working with Lisa helped me to realize what my entire brand story revolved around, which is the fact that I understand the struggle with money because I have been there myself. Understanding this has given me one thing to always focus on, which is what I have already overcome. A few weeks later I was approached by an A List media company for a brand development deal. The first thing they said they had noticed about me was my focused and powerful story."
I had the pleasure of working with Lisa on a creative team, where I was impressed with her versatility as a writer and understanding of story structure. She astutely distilled in writing the heart of a brand, which resulted in more powerful and focused visuals and messaging. She also wrote tag lines, scripts and web copy, all of which stayed tightly on-brand.
I admire Lisa for her intellect, dedication to her projects and her daring. I’ve watched her start up several side projects and partnerships that grew beyond her dreams and now her own business. She has the formula for making it all successful. I’d recommend seeking her out if your business is growing or you’re not quite sure how to express yourself with your audience.”
