Billie joined CFH initially as a part time employee coming from running a photography business that lasted 10 years. Now, she finds fulfillment from helping business owners realize their dreams.
She has business and coaching certifications but her biggest qualifications come from being an entrepreneur and a mom.
She is married with two teenagers, and split her time quite unequally between their barn watching her daughter ride horses and various baseball diamonds watching her son play baseball.
She still does photography, along with baking, on the side.
