Your own mind is the key to achieving the results you want in every aspect of your life.

Hearing one speaker may not change the course of your organization – or it might. I am an expert at molding mindset, jumpstarting motivation and igniting change. With my customized approach and messages, my audiences get what they need: lightbulb moments and powerful results.

My most requested topics are available as keynote talks, breakout sessions, half-day workshops and full-day intensives. Contact me to discuss which one is best for your organization’s needs.

Work With Me

Goals, challenges and opportunities don’t come in a one-size fits all package, that’s why there are numerous ways we can work together. Keynotes and breakout sessions are just the beginning.

Ever walked out of a program wondering what your take-a-ways should have been? Not with me. I create dynamic atmospheres in groups small and large,  in half-day workshops and full-day intensives. Whether short on time and needing a luncheon program for staff, or an extended weekend retreat for key leaders, I’ve got you covered. If you need a one-on-one strategy session or a deeper dive, I offer private client coaching for a select few. All options are designed to leave you energized, engaged and ready to take action. No post-session nap required.

The Book

“More time” is the thing most often requested on program feedback forms. My response was Just Another Leap: A Layman’s Guide to Get From There to HereThe book, like my programs, is NOT about soft positive thinking.  It’s a guide filled with very straight forward ideas, examples to back them up, and great quotes to inspire and reinforce them. It challenges you to stop looking for and making excuses and take ownership in your future. Most importantly, each chapter has a actionable “Leap” exercise to help you take that next step. It was intentionally designed as a short read with exercises you can build on for the rest of your life.
