custom marketing strategies implemented

years of marketing experience



At Sugarpunch, I spend my time helping entrepreneurs build & implement goal-crushing marketing strategies.

Whether you want your entrepreneurial to-do list to get a heck of a lot shorter.

I’m a third-generation entrepreneur, with over 15 years of experience in marketing and I have my Bachelor of Arts in Advertising (kind of like a blend of marketing communications and graphic design) from The Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg.

Just two years after starting Sugarpunch Marketing, we celebrated becoming a 6-figure agency that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs and small businesses get the reach that they need to grow awareness, increase their revenue and boost their conversion rates.

I can't resist my sweet tooth! Vanilla chai lattes & frosted donuts are my kryptonite


My two kiddos, my partner & myself live in a cute little rural town outside Chicago- and say very typical Midwestern things like "Ope", "Hey, guys" and "Yeah no, for sure.”


I’m a Harry Potter nerd and Enneagram 5w4 (the Philosopher)


Spending hours at Target with my BFF Joanna Gaines (she doesn't know we're BFF's yet, I'm keeping it on the DL) ... sounds like the best day ever


Bingeing Netflix, Korean dramas and rom-com novels make me happy!


Fun facts about shantÉ

What Clients Are Saying

Since I’ve invested in Shanté, I have been clearer on my branding, had more effective hashtag strategy, and had more interaction with my clients and content by (simply) implementing Shanté’s advice about branding, hashtags and content.

Hannah Richards, Social Media Manager

I have been blown away with what Shanté has done with my IG. She has a specific formula where the cycles through the know, like, and trust factor and also engages while doing it. We have a VERY niche audience whose attention we already had pretty well captured and she has still found a way to improve on it.

Alisha Pennington, Business Mentor

We had a lovely chat & clicked straight away! She understood what I wanted from the start– which made it such a joy to work with her!
