When you connect to your purpose and your people, you are unstoppable.

That’s what I do on-stage:

I connect.

I connect the dots between empathy and leadership.

I connect telling your story with your power to move yourself forward, move other people forward, and make an impact.

I connect with your audience, deeply, so that they’re inspired to reconnect with their own purpose and power.

And I deliver smart, energizing, and strategic presentations and workshops to ambitious audiences of seekers, strivers, entrepreneurs, and self-actualizers.


I Speak About:

How to Amplify Your Impact and Your Income By Owning Your Purpose and Your Power
Our ability to be resilient is tied to the truth of who we are and what we’re here to do. Heartache and challenges in our lives can help us uncover our purpose and align it with our life’s work to create a legacy that is impactful and meaningful. Learn how you can transform adversity to your advantage and your mess into an unforgettable message with the power to change lives—and discover your greatest gift to the world, which is to help other people feel less alone.

How Telling Your Story Can Make You A Better Leader
No matter whether you’re a business owner or employee, what makes you stand out is your ability to connect with those around you. That connection all starts with the stories you tell. This talk will share five ways to tell an unforgettable story that wins the hearts and minds of clients, customers, employees and team members alike.

How To Use Empathy To Catapault Your Business Forward
Leading with empathy means actually knowing who your people are and where they want to go. It’s not about pain points or triggering pain points in your marketing. It’s about being of service. Speaking the language of your customers or clients. Showing you care. Connecting in a deeper and more meaningful way. And, most importantly, treating people as individuals. When we lead with empathy in our businesses, it changes everything.

Courage Creation: How to Harness Vulnerable Stories that Drive Change
As entrepreneurs, we all arrive here for a reason. Maybe it’s because of something that happened in our past that unleashed a chain of events to turn us into business owners. Whatever the reason, we need to stop viewing our past as a liability and learn how to turn it into our biggest asset. This talk will share how to own those parts of our story we’re afraid we’ll be judged on in order to connect more deeply with other people, build the relationships that matter, and increase awareness of the important issues that affect us all.

I can also craft a talk around your specific needs and audience.
