I started my career when I was 19 in New Zealand as a service technician for Apple. After three years I was promoted to Service Manager with the highest marks for Service Certification ever recorded in New Zealand.
In 2001, I became a Genius for Apple when they opened their first San Diego store in Fashion Valley. (After all, I do have a Genius level IQ of 146). You can see more of my certifications and awards here.
Retail was not the gig for me so I started MacAngel, and became the world leading implementor of Daylite, by Marketcircle for ten years.
My next business venture was PodioAngel. I was one of 18 Citrix Preferred Podio Partners in the world. I did that for three years until they folded it under Sharefile. I made a good friend of a Podio partner that would later pop up to become a strategic partner.
Seeing the inner workings of over 450 companies encouraged me to start Novaturience, a business coaching practice. However, what I soon realized was that I could coach all day long, but that didn't change the fact that my business owners didn't have the time to do everything. They needed help. Most knew what to do, but not exactly how to do it or sometimes they fumbled through it poorly, didn't have the right technology in place, or understand the inner workings of modern marketing. (Seriously it's a full time job just keeping up with everything!)
What they really needed was expert help marketing their business. I am a now Certified Marketing Strategist and we are a Growth Driven Design Certified Agency. I bring the marketing strategy and I've teamed up with another former Podio Partner, Patrick Steil, who brings the technology infrastructure. Together we bring your business the growth it so desperately needs.
English, Read/Write/Speak French very rustily, I speak a little Thai. Kaw poot Thai dai nit noi.
Skiing, Golfing, Paddleboarding, Deep Sea Fishing, Orange Theory Fitness to keep me in shape.
My family developed Fairmont Hot Springs In Canada, built the Banff National highway and my Grandfather, Earl Wilder, was in the "Who's who of America". They gave my mother and father an enviable wedding present, a ski area in Canada called Tabor Mountain, where I grew up, Eh. Sure, I was spoilt growing up but I had that independent entrepreneurial pioneering spirit and left my family for NZ when I was 19 where I started my career in technology. Today I live in Del Mar with my son and "former Olympic rower" boyfriend.
