We'd love to share our story with you!

What others are saying:

Morgan has served on the Creative at Heart Conference Panel for 2 conferences, and will be serving (and speaking!) at our next conference in March 2016. She is an integral part of the panel group and we are so blessed to have her. She is not only incredibly intentional and present throughout the entire conference, but she does her “research” before even arriving; she researches the attendees beforehand and therefore understands the questions they have, the businesses they run and why they are attending. She is kind yet straightforward in answering questions thrown at her, and I constantly see her talking to other attendees one-on-one during breaks and meals. She is honest, open and confident. I know our attendees are fortunate to hear her advice and as the founder of the conference, I am so encouraged by her heart for community, desire for growth & passion for building up the industry.

-Kat Schmoyer, Founder and Visionary, Creative at Heart Conference
