Hey, I’m Liv.

I’m the founder of Portaga Creative.

For the past decade, I’ve worked alongside some of the nation’s leading brands in financial services, fintech, consumer technology, banking, entertainment and more to develop award-winning public relations campaigns. Prior to starting Portaga, I worked at New York City-based FiComm Partners, an integrated communications firm specializing in serving the wealth management and independent financial advisory industries. I began my career at nationally recognized public relations firm, DVL Seigenthaler, a Finn Partners company based in Nashville, Tenn.

In fall of 2018, my commitment to looking beyond the status-quo and delivering strategies that drive real results propelled me to launch Portaga — the culmination of a lifetime love of writing and a passion for business development and strategic communications.

A proud resident of New York City, I enjoy writing poetry, discovering new cuisines (channeling my inner Bourdain) and being the Cool Aunt to my nephews Beau and Hudson.

I’m honored you’re here. Email me at liv@portagacreative.com. Let’s connect.


The name Portaga derives from my family’s birthplace: Portage, Maine. A tiny lake town on the Canadian border known for its Native American roots, Portage was named after the act of “portaging” a canoe — which consists of lifting a canoe out of the water when it hits land, and carrying it to a different route to reach one’s destination.

Communications strategy is never linear. There are always barriers that arise. A true partner will pick up the canoe with you and find a new way of achieving your goals. That, my friends, is the heart of Portaga.
