Nice to meet you!
My name is Rissa. I am a highly intuitive and spiritual individual with a passion for making the world a better place. Being heart-centered is at the core of everything I do, and my sense of humor makes me very enjoyable to work with. I firmly believe that small business entrepreneurs hold the potential to change the world, which is why it lights me up to use my organizational skills and keen eye for design to help them grow and achieve their goals. I especially enjoy supporting local businesses in the St. Louis metro area in my professional life as well as my personal one.
a natural eye for design
As a former theatrical costume designer, I developed an eye for design and creativity, which now reflects in the work I do as the Marketing Unicorn. I feel that the skills I developed in the theatre world translate really well to marketing and design. As a costume designer, I honed the ability to interpret the vibe of a character from the words they said and the actions they did within the world of the play, and successfully express that to an audience with the clothes they wore… which is the same thing I do when creating beautiful and authentic designs for my clients.
In addition to that, efficiency and organization are second nature to me, and I take immense pride in being a reliable professional with a strong work ethic. A self-proclaimed Notion-wizard, I manage my projects and tasks with precision, while also ensuring a strict work/life balance is maintained.
efficient & organized
honest & transparent
In a world often clouded by vague assurances, I take pride in being refreshingly candid and real. No smoke and mirrors. This commitment extends to my work ethos as well. I firmly believe in setting realistic expectations and being honest about my capabilities and experience. Over-promising and under-delivering? That's just not my style. With me, you can count on an open and honest partnership that prioritizes your needs and objectives, resulting in a collaboration that's as authentic as it is fruitful.
In addition to my professional skills, I embrace my identity as a neurodiverse individual with ADHD, which provides me with a deeper understanding of the unique strengths and perspectives of fellow neurodiverse people. As a member of the queer community, I am committed to creating a safe and inclusive space for everyone, offering support and advocacy for those in need.
neurodiverse & queer
supportive & considerate
At the heart of my work is a passion for fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment within my community. Together, we can create a world where diversity is celebrated, and everyone can thrive. Whether it's through design, collaborations, or simply sharing experiences, I am dedicated to making a positive impact and contributing to a more compassionate and equitable society.
When I'm not immersed in my work, you'll find me hanging out at home with my partner and our dog and 2 cats (and innumerable house plants). I also love to travel as much as I can. I love gardening and being outdoors, whether it’s camping or going on a float trip. I am also an unapologetic nerd. I play video games and Dungeons & Dragons. Ask me about my character! 😉
