YO YO YIGGITY YO!! It's your hype girl JAZ! I am a wifey, girl momma, & boss babe who loves hard! I have no tolerance for negativity, I live for all the empowering positive energy. I am a firm believer in showcasing the many "hats" you wear and celebrating all of them!
I am your outside the box thinker who believes you're allowed to take up space unapologetically.
I am also a girl who LOVES a good beat! I love turning the volume up, closing my eyes, and letting the music take over!
I love when people come together to collaborate on a dream and everyone walks away feeling empowered to leave their mark on this world.
How it started...
I've always been a hype girl, just making my way in the community of Salem, Oregon, born & raised.
People, connecting and building a brand has always been a passion of mine. I've worn many hats in my life which has helped shape who I am today. I've spent the last six years in the real estate industry and have loved the hunger to build and network. Have I told you I'm different? 😉
I was able to meet some amazing people. As I grew relationships through long talks, tears, and laughter I often found myself encouraging people to grow personally and professionally. At some point I realized I wanted to grow like all the people I had connected with, ya know - practice what I preach? I was inspired by them and wanted to be in the water finding my own way! I had so many BIG dreams, passions, and goals.
Suddenly, the idea of using all of my passion and skills to pursue photography came to me. Photography has never been something light and airy, it's emotional, it's raw. Photography has the ability to capture a moment and make people feel powerful!
One day my husband surprised me with a date. Yay, I love dates! But before I knew it I was sitting in a parking lot at a camera store. I had no idea what I was doing there and I was so scared (I honestly thought I might black out). My husband looked at me and said, "You are going to do this! You are going to activate! I believe in you!" I remember tears rolling down my cheeks. How could he have so much belief in me?
I walked into that camera store as if I belonged and left with a camera. The first time I took that lens cap off all of that scared energy left. I knew right then that this is where I was supposed to be.
I have grown so much in the last year and chose to hang my corporate hat to explore everything this new "boss babe" hat has to offer. And I'm here to help you find the same, conquering your goals with faith and belief that you were made for this.
