How can my knowledge and experience help your efforts?
From organizing engaged focus groups to devising and implementing economic development policies and local business programs, I bring a beneficial perspective to your challenges.
Many of my opportunities were created for me by people who believed in my ability to create order out of chaos and bring the full measure of my efforts to the project. I am self-driven but also enjoy collaborating with others.
Being in the local movement for decades has given me the insight and perspective that only experience can provide. My background in business, entrepreneurship, sales, fundraising, marketing and branding brings a comprehensive approach and skill set to any project I undertake.

Don’t ask what the world needs.

Because what the world needs
is more people who have come alive.

“Rebecca has led the Austin Independent Business Alliance since it’s infancy, building a movement and brand to buy local, to put your dollars where year heart, your family, your friends and your community will benefit the most. She is a fearless and tireless advocate for local culture, community and collaboration. We need her now more than ever, strengthening the ties that bind business, community and culture. We would have lost Austin without Rebecca’s 20 year labor of love at AIBA.”
