INFORM    IGNITE    INSPIRE

   My goal when I speak: TELL THE TRUTH and GIVE THE AUDIENCE POWER.

 

I share unconventional lessons in business, entrepreneurship, leadership, using your voice, and building a life that feels like YOU. I'm not afraid to share my mistakes. My experience is full of humor, stories, risks, and successes that come from lessons learned. 

I've spoken at both consumer and corporate conferences around the U.S., small groups to 8,000 audiences of entrepreneurs, authors, health care professionals, students, leaders.

Topics: Using Your Voice & Speaking Up, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Equity & Access in Business, Unconventional Risk-Taking, Leadership: Women of Color, Mental Health, Unlocking Possibility and Potential, Design Thinking


   

     STORYTELLING. ENERGY. VISION.
