What I Like to talk About

At 53 I realized that not only do I have a voice; I have a loud, strong, powerful voice. I am the only one who can give myself permission to use it and make myself heard.

Voice. As an international Speaker, best selling Author, and Fear Strategist, it’s the common thread that runs through everything I do. It’s my mission to empower women to give themselves permission to speak their authentic truth, meeting fear as an opportunity for growth, valuing times of transition as occasions to step more fully into their power, and activating the bold choices that will help them create the life they want.

You may wonder why 53 is significant to me.  That’s the age when my mother died, and I was 21.  It was my wake up call to live my life with purposeful intention.

It is my mission to live a life of purpose and fulfillment and to teach as many women as I can along the way that you have the power to not only use your voice but be heard.

Life is full of transitions and challenges, but by being aware of what triggers our toxic, negative self-doubt and talk, We can shift and reset our mindset.

ALONE time is powerful, empowering and mandatory. It’s your time to think about your visions and to turn them into actions.

I have the formula so let's do this together!

My Background

I have my Master's in Molecular Genetics from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland Ohio where I discovered the TUB-36 gene in fruit flies. This gene causes a mutation in wing formation, therefore impeding flight. Ironically, after my own journey of self-awareness and trust, this lends itself to my story of impeding my own flight.

I spent time in the lab and in pharmaceutical sales at the beginnings of The Human Genome project and then became a mother of three now 28, 25, and 23.  A stay-at-home mom for most of their lives, I was the volunteer, team mom, and advocate for my kids. Then went on to be a substitute teacher, high school Biology teacher and into the corporate world of education and training teams.  As a lifelong educator, I worked for a non profit running their education until I realized I had no idea who I was except for what everyone else expected me to be.

That was my game changer, which ironically came when I turned 53. That was the year my mother died of cancer and I was 21. The same age my daughter was when I turned 53.
