My Story

I fell in love with speaking to groups fresh out of college. Well, that is if you don’t include when a microphone, make that a megaphone, was handed to me at the age of 16, when I became the captain of a sixty-five member dance team, deep in the heart of Texas. A great feat for a transplanted native New Yorker just two years earlier. Even then I would try to inspire my peers, who would often look at me rather confused when I would occasionally read a poem instead of going over dance steps. Inspiration, leadership, passion–I knew then it felt right to speak, to lead, to inspire. Oh, and to dance. I so love to dance.

You see, I am  dedicated to awakening individuals to their own outstanding potential–to live inspired, motivated, productive, fulfilling lives, both professionally and personally. And to instill courageous optimism. Hope. Overcoming fear seems to be an area of expertise where I thrive. I guess that’s because I’ve slayed some pretty big dragons in my journey through life and lived to tell about it. And I’ve collected some pretty interesting stories.

The audiences I  have presented to include WOVI-Women of Visionary Influence; American Business Women’s Association; International Dance Exercise Association; Southern Methodist University; American Heart Association; AWRT American Women in Radio and Television; ERA-Electronic Retailing Association; The Women’s Center of Dallas; Albertson’s Corporate Retreat-Carefree, Arizona; Texas Credit Union League; The Verandah Club; Kilgore College; The Visiting Nurses Association; Christian Care Hospice; and numerous others.

People say that my style is unique, inspirational and powerful. And when I notice my audiences are moved or transformed in some way, by what I have to say, there is truly no better feeling on earth knowing that I am making a difference in another’s life.

“I obtain great satisfaction after working with clients in groups or in private sessions, especially when I see them become proactive in their own transformation– taking the necessary steps to becoming more optimistic, inspired and empowered in all areas of their lives! What a joy it is indeed!”
