Elevated Strategist works closely with top executives, experts, entrepreneurs and companies guiding their creation of consistent and impactful strategic messaging to ensure successful campaigns, events, brands and businesses.

Plessy is also the Founder and CEO of Single Moms Planet (SMP),a 501(c)(3) non-profit established to educate, empower, and uplift single mothers and their children. Through SMP, she has developed cutting-edge programming, events and resources focused on financial literacy and business development. Through its Single Mom’s Awards, SMP has celebrated the amazing achievements of single moms who have built success in business and inspired other single moms around the world. Honorees have included Anastasia Sores, owner of Anastasia of Beverly Hills; Shanna Moakler, former Miss USA; and Garcelle Beauvais, actress and television personality.

Becoming a model at 17, she appeared in a variety of magazines and publications, later becoming a Playmate of the Month at Playboy Magazine. She would go on to appear on music videos and television shows such as “The Parkers,” “Method and Red” and others as well co-host VH1’s “Sex & Rock Roll.”

Over a decade ago, as a single mom of two young children, Plessy struggled like many new single moms to find balance, identity, self-fulfillment, and financial security. She learned then that even though over one-third of all children in America are being raised by single moms, there was no organization solely dedicated to supporting single moms. This led her to devote her time and resources to give single moms the inspiration and resources they need to live their best life.

Plessy and her work have been featured on numerous media outlets including Access Hollywood, Extra, Good Morning America, The Huffington Post, BBC News, MSN Lifestyle, KIIS FM and LA Weekly.

Yarrow is a community builder of 20 years and pioneer in social networking. Yarrow is the Founder of HATCH , H360.ai, and Superdudes, an Aspen Institute Fellow, and named 2015 top 100 creatives in the U.S. by Origins. As a Director, he has helmed projects for Richard Branson, The Rock, P Diddy, and international brands.

In 1999, Yarrow created the original online community, Superdudes – 3 1/2 years before My Space – enabling users to create online identity, profile, friends lists, and play online games, to earn a chance at crowd-voted fame, and get printed in a deck of trading cards. The platform connected and empowered real life superheroes (there is a superhero within us all) and gamified community volunteerism. The community grew to 1.5 Million users by 2003, and user engagement was higher than any youth destination site at that time, when it was acquired by FOX in a bundle with MySpace for $580M. Six months later, Yarrow founded HATCH, a network of influencers accelerating progress on solutions for global challenges.

In 2016 Yarrow founded H360, a machine learning platform as the ultimate engagement and collaboration app. H360 is designed to unleash the potential of communities, corporations, and other organizations while, creating a “Network of Networks” by match-making resources for collaborations to improve the world. Yarrow is featured in the book Talent for Humanity, has led think tanks with Intel, Hasbro, Ernst & Young, given talks at TEDx, Vivatech, EarthX, Day One, and Business Innovation Factory Summit (BIF).
