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. 



















Communicating by way of all mediums is important to me.  I use any means possible, whether that be from stage in front of a large audience at a conference, training in front of a corporate group, speaking virtually, providing online and text training, writing my six books, hosting a webcast and podcast, and even through my television show that is seen in 50 countries around the world. My goal is to make an impact and raise people to a higher level of sucess, regardless of the platform I'm on.


I am also the Founder of a nonprofit organization that helps families who are in desperate need of aid.  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 four U.S. Congressional Candidates, as well as the current 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 it 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.
