My story is filled with hardship and breakthroughs. After being unemployed and on government assistance I pursued starting my own businesses, which eventually lead to raising $1/2 million for my tech company (as a non-technical founder). Audiences relate to my authentic personality and unconventional path to where I am today.


Invite me to speak at your next event, conference or retreat. I have worked successfully with small groups of 10 people up to large audiences of 300+ attendees, including women’s organizations, nonprofits, businesses, associations, foundations, young professional groups, fellowship programs, universities and civic groups.
