The trainings included in the Director-level membership really helped me understand why I need a cohesive personal brand and walked me through things like messaging and planning out content. In just a few short hours on the weekend, I created enough materials for my site and Instagram account to last more than a month!"

"I can't believe how easy it was to tweak the templates for my own personal brand! My Instagram followers shot up by 10% in just a week!

I've learned so much from Amanda on Clubhouse, YouTube and her trainings inside the Academy membership that it's literally like she has been personally guiding us in communications, marketing and admissions best practices. We were even able to secure more donations utilizing some of the storytelling methods she teaches. Thank you, Amanda, because we never would have been able to do this on our own!"

"As the head of a small school with limited resources, I appreciate the opportunity to have an experienced school communications director guiding me.

J.H.

I'm pretty skilled in creating my own materials for my district, but I was really craving a bit more creativity...I just didn't have the time or headspace to get as creative as I wanted.

The Creator membership gives me access to hundreds of templates that, in just a few clicks, I can customize with our district's colors and logos. The best part is that the membership inspired me to create a bunch of new materials for our district that really echo our brand. Everything is fresh and cohesive, and everyone loves what I put together. Thank you for what you do because initially, I didn't think I needed this service--now, I can't do my job without it!"

"My district communications office is a one-person shop: ME. And, there's no money in he budget to hire additional help.

kind words

ok, I'm intrigued. tell me more!

I believe communications is both an art AND a science.

I believe EVERY school is full of rich stories that need to be told...the stories of teachers, students, staff, alumni, families and community partners.

I believe if we don't tell the stories of our school, someone else will...and we might not like the narrative.

I believe in communications strategy, but also following your gut when it comes to design.

I believe that we should share our experiences and knowledge. Why not help someone else who needs it (plus, it helps with knowledge retention and transfer!).

I believe school communications can be fun, creative AND effective.

Hi, I'm Amanda.
