My Story


While working 9 to 5, I felt the doldrums of corporate America eating away at my soul. But outside of work, I poured my heart into telling the stories of inspiring women on my blog, Feminist Wednesday. My lifelong dream was to make a feature length film, and I realized I could combine my two passions by making a film about the amazing women I was meeting. So fueled by coffee, a drive to change the world, and a feminist agenda, I quit my job to launch a Kickstarter campaign that raised $100K in 30 days. Dream, Girl, the documentary showcasing the stories of inspiring and ambitious female entrepreneurs, was born.

The film’s mantra is that you don't need permission to follow your dreams. There is no formula for success, no blueprint to guide you; there’s just a tiny voice inside you, telling you dream big. We want you to listen to it. I did – and my life has changed forever.



My first feature length documentary that premiered at the White House. Dream, Girl showcases the stories of inspiring & ambitious female entrepreneurs.

Speaking Topics I Love:

- How I took an idea of making a film, raised $100K on Kickstarter to produce it, and premiered my first feature length film at the White House. 
- In the first year of selling Dream, Girl my team made six figures and oversaw 240 public screening events. Learn how to dive into the money narratives that are blocking you from building your brand and your audience.
- From being sexually harassed at my nine to five to quitting my job to follow my dreams, learn how to find and use your voice on your terms.
