a little more about me...
With over 30 years of experience as a Professional Speaker and Executive Strategist, I understand how important the standing ovations and rave reviews are for all of us who are partnering to put on a memorable event. Throughout the years, I've spoken to countless numbers of people with audience sizes of tens of thousands, and I've been a speaker for the largest global brands in the world. So, partnering with organizations, event planners, and bureaus is something I have great respect for and treat very delicately.
If you’re looking for high energy, a razor-sharp wit, and lots of fun, I'll deliver for you every time. That's a promise. I'm also very easy-going and dependable; no weird temperamental, high-maintenance attitude to worry about, here.
That's another promise.
I have been professionally certified to train over 150 courses and hold three professional coaching certifications, allowing for a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) designation.
I am also the Founder and Director of a nonprofit organization that helps families who are in desperate need of aid. We provide food, clothing, shelter, transportation, translation services, and medical care for these high-risk families. Our organization has over 700 volunteers and we've contributed to helping over 48,000 people. I am the Founder and State Director of a woman's organization that has over 2,000 members in Arizona and I am on the Outreach Team for that same national organization and am responsible for leading the southwest and western region, which is roughly 30,000 women. I have also worked as the Chief of Staff for a candidate who was running for U.S. Congress in 2020, was the Director of Voter Outreach and Volunteers for another U.S. Congressional Nominee, as well as the Director of Communications for a nonprofit organization.
and on a personal note...
Leading by example, paying it forward, and doing the work- the hard work- are important pillars in my life and they shape the message that I share with audiences. I believe that when we are in service to others and engaged in actively leading for the common good of our team and our community, it creates what I call Reflective Leadership. When my personal commitment to be an Upstander is reflected in my professional behaviors it creates a higher level of commitment and loyalty for my team and clients. While I am never political in my professional work, my commitment to service encourages others to tap into and connect with a deeper level of purpose and social good within their own work and life. My civic and social work is a reflection of me and I am very aware of the positive power that holds. I believe that we are all here to make a difference and I work to inspire the Whole Person to be the best they can be in every area of their lives because I know how powerful and inspired they are when they show up to work for you.
I'd love to have the opportunity to work with you and your teams.
