My speaking career spans more than 20 years and includes company keynotes, panel moderation, emceed events, and presentations at national conferences. You can count on me to show up ready and prepared for your audience with topics that teach and entertain. 

The Power of the Unspoken Word

Body language matters when leaders communicate – whether one-on-one or with a large audience. Quite often, it is what you don’t say that counts. People reveal their true feelings and emotions via body language. Understanding these “signs” can be used to your advantage, to help you motivate and bond, present ideas with credibility, and authentically project your personal brand.


Quiet Leaders

We've all heard the saying “watch the quiet ones.” In leadership, these are the ones who lead by example. Leaders can become better at what they do by using inspiration and empathy to motivate their team to perform in ways that create meaningful change and results. Stimulate your workforce to think about old problems in new ways and encourage them to challenge their own values, traditions and beliefs. Find out how transformational leadership can enhance your organization.


Authentically Me

Our authentic self is who we truly are as a person. It is not based on your occupation, how much influence you have over others or what you want others to think about you. Your authentic self is not false or copied. My quest to become “the real me” was like a chameleon changing colors to fit in. From experience, I have embraced steps that can guide you on your journey to be the real you – the one who shows up when you’re not putting on an act for others. Experience a sense of freedom and ease in finding yourself. 


Lean In

Do you ever fear failure, or rejection, or being embarrassed, or letting others down, or getting hurt? Do you play it safe and avoid trying new things or taking risks? I did. This kept me from truly being happy and achieving my goals & dreams. Then, I learned techniques to overcome fears, to get unstuck and to take action. Lean in, learn how to apply techniques that will build your confidence and set you free to live life fully.

"My favorite thing to do is to inspire leaders to love their work even more and to adore their team. Sharing stories, concepts and ideas is a way for me to help companies create more value, build successful teams and have fun doing it."
