Hello, I'm Karee - Entrepreneur, Social Media Enthusiast,
BRANDING STRATEGIST, LATTE LOVER, AND FOREVER OPTIMISTIC DOG LOVER!
AWARD-WINING MARKETER, STRATEGIST AND SOCIAL MEDIA PROFESSIONAL…
Meet Karee – Strategist,
innovator and dog lover!
Born on the tiny island of Jamaica and raised with big ideals and a “can-do” attitude, I’ve always believed in the infinite possibility of what you can conceive, you can achieve.
I’ve had the great fortune of working with many brands, small and large businesses, but by far the most rewarding aspect of my job is working one-on-one with entrepreneurs and business owners. For many years I’ve struggled with my true calling. I’ve been to law school, business school, corporate america and back, and about the only thing that seems to keep reverberating inside my head is the need to help, nurture and make the impossible that much more possible.
I started Studio Brand Collective in 2013, all with a large dream, a passion for what I love and the drive to make it happen. I gave up a job I loved but had fallen out of love with to pursue a life fulfilling passion. And while each day as an entrepreneur is hard and challenging, I get to work with the most creative and bad-ass talent I know. As the chief brand strategist of Studio Brand Collective, I take an individual approach to every client. Over the past few years, I have concentrated on developing comprehensive brands and through a consistent, strategic approach to brand building, I’ve created a system that ultimately grows brands.
I have been featured as one of Houston’s leading brand consultants, pioneering great work for local and regional brands; a local hero by Houston magazine, and a Woman Who Means Business by the Houston Business Journal, among many others. But of all these accomplishments, by far my most proudest is each day I am able to do what I love and help those who need it!
I passionately believe in good marketing and the power of good over evil.
These essentials are always the same. We all are emotional beings looking for relevance, context and connection. I believe that hard work wins always, hands down.
I believe that each and every one of us has the power to craft the life we want – a life with intention and purpose. I believe that we all have our own light that we shine upon ourselves and the people around us. And I believe that if you can dream it, you can achieve it! But you need to plan, and most of all, execute!
just for you
MY GOAL IS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH AS MANY RESOURCES AS POSSIBLE (FOR FREE) TO HELP YOU CRAFT A LIFE AND BUSINESS WITH INTENTIONS.
I am often asked, “how did you get started?” or “what does it take to succeed?” And each time, over and over again, I say – “Just start somewhere and remember that the great route to success is truly finding your passion and passionately pursuing those things.”
Remember, if you have a
dream, you can spend a
planning, and getting
ready for it. What you
should be doing is
