Amber Fullah

Events Chair

I am a mama, wife and entrepreneur! I am the co-owner of Vibe Venue – an event venue in the Columbus/Worthington area specializing in hosting a wide range of private & corporate events! I have a true passion for community and view hosting and decorating events as my way of helping bring my clients special moments and event vibes to life! 

When I’m not wearing many hats operating the venue, I am enjoying time with my two beautiful daughters and husband Sam. I’m originally from Memphis, TN so I love a good, southern home-cooked meal, traveling and watching House Hunters on repeat! 

Being apart of the Conscious Community Collective family this past year has truly been a rewarding experience! Nothing quite like growing our business alongside a group that truly cares for each other and withhold the same visions we have towards building community!

Megan Phillips

Social Media Chair

I’m Megan, founder of Megan Phillips Co, where I provide ick-free social media management for CEOs who just don’t want to do it themselves.

After leaving my corporate job to be a stay-at-home mom, I found myself lost in motherhood. While attempting to find my purpose outside of motherhood, I discovered entrepreneurship through network marketing.

This is when my love for marketing and social media started. Now, I help small businesses consistently show up online, build personal connections, and book more clients through Instagram & Facebook.
