About Me: 

An entrepreneur at heart - I love the freedom and choice that comes with owning my own business. Everything is on my terms (but it took some time to learn this!). My work focuses on personal branding, marketing strategy, coaching and thinking BOLDLY on behalf of my female clientele. I believe that if a woman is firmly rooted in her values and is surrounded with a strong tribe (network) of women and men, she can build and become whatever she most desires in her life. But we need one another to make this happen.

I am also on Faculty at a local University teaching graduate level students in Women's Leadership. Because of this, I spend quite a bit of time interacting and engaging with phenomenal women from all walks of life. I have found that leadership is not position or status - but rather ideas and people willing to RISK living boldly and out loud. This kind of leadership allows us to deepen our roots, ground ourselves, and take hold of the power we all have within! This is what I believe sets women apart - because we are based in and operate from a place from which we cannot stray. As leaders and human beings, we are cemented and committed to something deeper.

I am an optimist and constant believer of dreams. Most often you will find me asking questions, thinking outside the box, challenging the status quo, getting in a bit of trouble… and finding ways to make your dream a reality. I only believe in meaningful work.

My Passions: 
Women's leadership, youth leadership, health and fitness, reading non fiction, my two toddler boys
My Challenges: 
Same as above - just in reverse!
My Vision for the Future: 
A world where every person loves more, listens longer and strives to learn more about one another.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Leadership, marketing, small business, communication, networking
