How Can I Help?

“Most people have more than most people.  We get busy, very busy, and forget not only what we are doing, but why we are doing it.  Whether advancing a social cause, developing leaders, engaging students, planning a conference, welcoming parents, collaborating as a team or staff, enhancing professionalism, or seeking to motivate those around you, my approach is to help you achieve your specific programming goals and learning outcomes.”

“I bring over two decades of professional speaking to the table along with a significant background working in higher education, raising and parenting two college students, building a business, and serving my community.  Along the way, I have developed a speaking style inspired by the desire to serve while bringing original content, inspiration and joy to others.  How can I help you?”
