I’m a southern(ish) peach with an overdramatic love for iced coffee, over sized t-shirts, blankets, and planners. You can find me playing outside with my tiny humans or binging Survivor. I’ve been lovin' life  since 1993.

Here's the sitch

In June of 2019, I had reached a dead end. I was working a full time job that I loved but didn't pay well, taking care of a toddler and a newborn, and trying to remain sane. I knew something had to change, so I started researching ways to bring in income that wouldn't impact my full time hours or the little bit of time I had to spend with my family.

So, I did what any one else would do and joined a TON of freelancing/entrepreneur groups. Not too long afterwards, I saw a post of a business owner needing someone to outsource some work to.

I reached out to her, and I got the job.

But that also lit a fire under me because for the first time in my life, I was doing something I love - creating - AND getting paid for it. In just 7 months of freelancing, I was able to match my full-time income for the first time - talk about a great feeling.

Not too long after that, I launched HPC as a social media agency, but really it was more of an "I'll-do-anything" agency. I literally took on any project that landed in my lap. After designing a few websites, I quickly realized that was where my heart was.

And now, here I am - supporting bomb-ass female-owned creative businesses and absolutely loving every minute of it.

Now, I get to do what I love every day and show my tiny humans that you can do whatever you want - no matter how big your dreams. What more could I ask for?

Uhh yes please!

all the praise

Emily was a pleasure to work with! I honestly got more than I bargained for out of my experience. I feel like I’m more equipped to make my social media work for me, and not the other way around. I’d recommend her services a million times over. You won’t regret it!

Emily and the Happy Papaya Creative team made the process simple and easy. All the exchanges were pleasant. They knew the right questions to ask to take the vision in my mind and create an amazing logo and branding direction. The end result is even better than I had expected. 

Emily did a great job creating a new logo and branding elements for my small company. She took my mumbled mess of wants and turned them into something really unique and beautiful, adding little touches that I never knew I needed! The process was so simple and straightforward, and she was so patient with me and my delayed responses (being a solopreneur is hard work!) Such great talent and so professional!
