I launched HINS & Co. to provide unmatched strategic insights that were broken down so comprehensively for businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs they'd have to be crazy to lose.

A very rare breed of consultant

Thanks to three colleges, an unparalleled passion for wisdom and a little ADHD, I've become the "do as I've done" consultant. Unlike most advisors, I can actually build and execute just about anything I advise at the expert level, giving clients a true 360 view of the best interest of the business. Imagine if the person who changed the oil in your car was the same person who designed it, manufactured it, painted it, marketed it, sold it, and repaired it, and they did all of that WELL. Powerful insight they'd have wouldn't they? That's kinda like me :)


I'm a driven and ambitious wife and mother. Some of my favorite things include eating, sleeping, relaxing and creating. I grew up in sunny Southern California where I started my business. My husband Joseph and I split our time between SoCal and our current residence in Colorado.

I currently serve as the CEO of ALL MAVEN Enterprise and Principal at, while also holding the positions of Director of Startup Grind Colorado Springs, Co-Director of Startup Grind Carlsbad, and Vice Chair of the Executive Board for the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce. I very much like to stay busy :)

Labels you can align me with include: Christ Warrior. Mother. Intellectual Creative. Tech Junkie. CEO. Director & Executive of Things. I've got quite a few more, and adding new ones all the time. I'm a monsterprenuer as my current endeavors involve raising $70 million, for 17 different businesses over the next 7 years. I represent a diverse group of clients and focus on those who like to shake up an industry.

Looking for your next speaker, host or guest? I'd love to captivate your audience.

When it comes to connecting with people, whether through hosting, guest speaking or main events, I love leaving the audience with a memorable experience. Below are some of the most popular topics that I have spoken on in various locations, such as Chambers, Private Organizations, Conferences, SCORE and more. I also enjoy podcasting. If you're looking to have me host or speak for your event, please contact our office at your convenience. While these are sweet spots, I can customize a chat for any audience.

Business is a broad stroke of paint that utilizes experiences of every shade. I started my business from scratch, at home, with a computer borrowed from my cousin. Year after year I grew, now expanding my firm into two states, helping business owners achieve their goals and increase their revenue. From teaching branding, marketing and design, to consulting and speaking, success is no stranger to my house, even when all the odds were against me. I’ve taught at Chambers, Corporations, Community Events, SCORE, and several other places, providing wisdom and guidance for those that are before and after me.
As a millenial black woman, there many experiences I can speak to that resonate with a diverse audience. From sharing stories with youth to discussing women’s issues, my background and upbringing allow me to bridge the gap with a myriad of groups. Whether on the topic of family, work, interracial relationships, or the balance between them all, I strive to share my story that compels individuals to think, act and achieve better for themselves.
Family is everything to me -- but raising a strong healthy family is no easy task. While my life is painted with many blessings, it’s also not devoid of its challenges. Being a black woman, married to white man, raising an autistic child and two toddlers in a blended family while operating a successful business, ensures life is always coupled with unique circumstances, challenges, victories and thought provoking experiences.
It is only through faith that I can claim the gifts, blessings and opportunities bestowed upon me. While having been a believer all my life, my faith transformation never truly began until after I had my son James, with my true “coming to Jesus moments” occurring at age 30. My life is great testimony to how God works through you, tests you, grows you and guides you to reaching your true calling in life. Faith is woven into all that I embrace -- work, family, relationships, and is the driving influence that has helped me shape a life I admire.
“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." - Matthew 19:26
While many shy away from the Mental Health discussion and find themselves infected with Stigma, this is an area at the forefront of my life. As a successful business owner with ADHD and a mother of an Autistic child, I enjoy having the conversations that many who have been affected by someone with mental health issues feel have been left in the shadows. My hope is to bring not only more awareness in the community, but to also fight stigma, address challenges, share experiences and lift others up to live life to the fullest.
I'm a full tech nerd and specifically have a passion for SaaS. From the right tools to integrating a full remote experience, there a plenty of tech tips I provide. I previously served as the Carlsbad Chamber Technology Advisory Committee Chair and currently serve as its Co-Chair.
