Speaking, Interviews + Workshops 


And he's not wrong. I have a BA in communications with an emphasis on leadership development training and the dramatic interpretation of literature. I also have my MA in Organizational Leadership.  

Basically I've been fascinated with leadership since I read my first John Maxwell book at 10 years old, thought understanding communication might be one of the most important journeys I could take and loved having a reason to read poetry out loud for class credit.

I gave my very first motivational speech to a room full of 300 community leaders when I was only 9 years old. Teetering on a stack of phone books just so I could reach the podium, I fell in love that day with empowering people to turn their impossibilities into stepping stones. 

Some 30+ years and 24 countries later, connecting heart-to-heart and encouraging creatives, entrepreneurs & leaders is still one of my favorite things to do. With heart-felt intuition and dedicated passion to see leaders, businesses, and organizations thrive from the inside out, I am committed to helping entrepreneurs have the tools they need to leave a legacy in their communities and the world at large.
