Shana Robinson

Branding/Image Consultant

The Branding Boutique

Finding our brand identity and staying on course to what really feels like us can be difficult. We have a vision, but executing that vision is a challenge. We often find ourselves on a venture into branding that don't feel like us, trying to find "a" brand, and not necessarily "our" brand vision. 

I came upon this amazing Brand Identity company and I instantly felt connected. The branding represented was perfectly polished, classic and timeless. I felt impossibly inspired and suddenly clear on where I wanted my brand to go. 

In true Nancy fashion, I reached out and had to speak with this incredible entrepreneur and hear her story. Sherry & I were instantly in awe of her, and her vision truly aligns so perfectly with our 2022 Made To Grow Event. We are SO excited to announce our next speaker, CEO of The Branding Boutique, Shana Robinson.

"After more than 6 years of supporting women through one- on-one image consulting, creative direction, and branding work, I’m on a mission to reach aspiring CEOs en masse.

I’m a mom to one, a bonus mom to another, a dancer, a dreamer, and a firm believer in the power of women lifting other women up! 

From the woman who’s just a few years into her entrepreneurial journey to the established boss who’s ready to elevate and intensify her brand, we equip you with everything you need – inside and out – to build a successful, market-ready business so you can focus on growing into the CEO you’re meant to be."

Sherry Sobey/Nancy Dutiaume

Founders  & Hosts

In late 2018, Sherry & Nancy began a venture to create an entrepreneurial community that would help to shape the female business owner's journey. Experienced business owners ourselves, we found we were lacking a community of like minded individuals who have walked the same path, and who could help us to find the right resources to avoid some of the same hurdles and mistakes we made. 

In 2019, we held the inaugural Made To Grow Event. The connections made were tremendous and surprised even Sherry & I. We were humbled, and we knew we were on to something that was needed in the women owned business community. 

So this little community has grow to 62 members and counting. A yearly event that brings hope, skill and magic to our businesses. A place for those who hope to grow, who need support, kindness and connection. We're here to be your sound board. To help you grow through workshops and mentoring. 

On March 7th, 2022, we are holding our 3rd Annual Made To Grow event. Sherry & Nancy will share how this community has shaped our ability to grow, excel and learn to dream in a way we never thought possible. 

We can't wait to lead you into another year of community and success. To help you discover how to create the life that brings you joy and magic. To dream, grow and prosper. 

Sherry is the CEO/Founder of Generation Green & Acorn Cafe


Nancy is a professional makeup artist and the owner of MADE Beauty Co.
