About Caren

Hi! I’m Caren, a brand and marketing strategist with over 15 years of experience building brands both on the agency side and in-house.

Some of my favorite projects have been leading strategy engagements with brands such as Google, One Medical, The North Face and Disney as well as lots of startup companies – anywhere from 2 to 100+ people. And I love sharing both my passion and expertise with brands big and small, old and new, helping channel their own passion into real growth.

Prior to working independently, I was a Director of Strategy at Interbrand, the world’s largest brand consultancy and also worked in-house at both Procter & Gamble and Nestle in Brand Management. San Francisco is where I’ve called home for the last 10 years, although I am originally from Texas where I earned an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin.

When we work together, you’ll get:
