Since 2008 I have worked with non-profits, family businesses and creative entrepreneurs to help hone their vision and breathe life into their projects. In 2013, I opened a boutique yoga studio in a small town in Eastern Washington called Revolver Yoga with a small handful of regular clients. The very first class held in the studio on opening day was over capacity. In four short months, the studio was profitable and quickly became a thriving and tight-knit community center with multiple teachers and a full schedule of daily classes. For six years I explored many avenues of creating, running, and problem solving as the owner and lead teacher, always asking how I could align my core values and philosophies with what was best for the project. Due to my own business success and background in design, I began to consult with other individuals and small businesses within the wellness industry, helping each to more clearly define their vision, goals, and how to balance career with a robust personal life. Working for years in different facets of the wellness industry, one thing became very clear:
Building a brand that is brave enough to showcase your talents while expanding your vision is personal.
What you put out into the world matters. Identity design is not just the visual representation of what an organization, small business, or creator offers, but also its story, values and community. Great design not only looks good, it feels good, too. From branding and re-branding, print collateral, website copy, and marketing campaign creation, to interior layout and design, the image you project speaks your message and defines the clientele you attract. Most importantly, clarity in your goals, motivations, and vision keeps you true to your values, supports sustainable business practices, and lets you do what you love for a long time.
I can't wait to help you bring your project to life.
Skip the trial and error. Tell me your ideas, goals, vision, budget and stumbling blocks. This part is free - I'm happy to chat with inspired people!
I go to the drawing desk with your ideas and inspiration, research and develop the content, mood boards, and other collateral you need to make your brand sing.
Once we've found the sweet spot, I'll put everything together, coordinate any outside contractors, and help you implement strategies for success while staying true to your holistic vision.
Putting yourself out there is exhilarating,
daunting and sometimes lonely. When we work together, I am committed to your long-term success & wellbeing.

I first met Courtney when I contacted her regarding the opening of my Pilates studio. I was looking to connect with someone who could give me advice on starting a business in a small town. As the owner of a successful yoga studio, she came highly recommended. Upon meeting with her I found her to be kind, informative, and willing to offer her experience and expertise. Aside from sharing with me many great business tips she also expressed an interest in exploring Pilates. I invited her to the studio for a lesson and she stayed with me for over two years. It is a joy to be her instructor. She is a beautiful mover with a clear understanding of the “mind-body” connection. I am very proud to have introduced her to Pilates and even more proud to see how she is helping others with her combined knowledge of Yoga and Pilates. She is a gifted teacher, a committed student, and a beautiful soul.

Our business was going through a transition and we were in the process of rebranding. Courtney helped me transform my vision and together we created a logo that represents my business in a polished and professional way. We had many honest and objective discussions that helped me find clarity in brand representation. I appreciate the wealth of creativity that Courtney offers as she strives to keep the integrity of an existing vision, but also uses her talents to transform and improve that vision.
