Speaking from experience

I understand the challenge of creating inspiring and engaging events. In prior roles, I’ve been responsible for the planning and preparation of multiple programs, from small local events and corporate training sessions to large multi-day conferences.

I can still remember the first great speaker I saw...influential!

I can also remember that “meeeeh” feeling after an event when the speaker just didn’t have the right fit.  I’ve been on all sides of the stage, front, back and on stage, and it's my goal for all to have peace of mind at the end of the day.

I'd like to help you “get to know me” and instead of spending hours researching, I hope to make it as easy as possible for you to feel confident, reach out and make a decision that fits.

Thank you for stopping in to consider me. I am deeply appreciative. To inquire about my availability click below.

Ambition has shown proven returns in...

  • Career success
  • Organizational growth
  • Economic and social value

Once I experienced this, I started speaking to share career and life-changing lessons I've learned by being bold and believing in what is possible.  Not the typical hype, but delivering a message of authority and wisdom born from experience.


I ensure your audiences are energized with inspiring
stories, new, relevant skills and takeaway value so they can transform knowledge into action. I'm not afraid to share the reality that help audiences relate change
understand what it takes.

  • From fears to courage
  • From falls to confidence
  • From failure to change

I deliver an experience that's bold, creative and real.  No matter the challenge you’re facing leadership, organizational and cultural change, or communication challenges, I will create a message that meets your needs.
