My Mission

My mission is to paint a compelling picture of existing inequities that provoke companies and individuals to take the necessary actions to build and sustain an internal culture and society that is fair and equitable. I see the world through the lens of inclusion.

I believe Inclusion is part of every aspect of life and is fundamental to every successful career. If you are in a position that involves working with others, then being inclusive in your thoughts and actions will amplify your success.

My presentations, speeches, coaching, workshops, and webinars are geared to heighten people’s awareness and to inspire them to take action so they can have a life that is richer,  more successful and rewarding.




Unconscious Bias and Behavioral Expectations

Using different communication styles as the vehicle, this speech takes the audience on a humorous journey exploring differences associated with masculine and feminine communication styles. While the words may sound the same, their interpretation is significantly different. These disparities make or break teams, leaders, relationships, sales, and marketing strategies.

Transforming Diverse Perspectives into Opportunities

Fundamental to developing an inclusive work environment or successful conversation is acknowledging and accepting differences. Most people limit diversity to race, ethnicity, religious, physical and mental capabilities, age, gender, or sexual orientation or preference. This session focuses on ways to embrace differences and conflicts that may arise as healthy parts of life, using them as steppingstones to expand insights, understanding, problem-solving solutions, and awareness of oneself and others.

Think You Suffer From Imposter Syndrome? Think again

Building Your CareerCapital: Use your career to live the life you want

When we think about taking care of ourselves, it is usually focused on our physical or mental health. But what about our career health?

Attendees gain a set of practical tools to grow and expand their career opportunities, increase their confidence, manage the barriers to their success, and build a robust network.
