Creative Content Strategist
“Coquette of Creative Energy”
As an author, speaker, and trainer, Charmaine is accomplished in content creation and leveraging social media. Her years as editor of a meetings and events industry publication along with her drive to produce philanthropic events have garnered her magnificent insights and fostered treasured collaborations and friendships with others in the industry worldwide.
Charmaine has a heart for service and helping others create their best lives. As she likes to say, “I try to be the person I once needed.” Always looking for ways to help her neighbors thrive, she founded the Midwest Maidens Roller Derby, whose proceeds go to local charities, and Brookings PRIDE, the organization which produced the first LGBGQ+ event in the county.
Her hearty Midwest values with a hint of rebellion have allowed her to push through challenges to create authentic partnerships built on mutual respect and trust. Her easy to get along with nature, effervescent laughter, and love of bright colors is enough to bring a little sunshine to anyone’s day.
