Meet Me

I enjoy making unique connections between leadership, learning, & life through the power of story. I believe my purpose is making a difference helping other people make theirs. That means I wanna help you do what you love so you can help more people!

FUN STUFF–I love movies and tv, and actually dabble in acting, mostly in small speaking roles, extra work, and background for CMT, TVOne, and Oxygen. I’ve also performed in college theater, community theater, and professional theater.  Oh yeah, and one time Oprah disagreed with me on national tv so there’s that. I love listening to audio books, working out, family time, food, and dogs. 

FORMAL BLAH, BLAH STUFF:  I’m a doctor, just not the medical kind—it’s a doctorate in leadership, I also have a masters in leadership, and my undergrad is English, Speech Communications and theatre. I’ve been a teacher, a principal and a dean.  I once worked as a US Congressional Staffer (that was back when everyone got along) and I’ve co-authored dyslexia legilsation in my state.  I’m passionate about making life and learning accessible and more welcoming for everyone.  I’ve also been quoted or featured in over 80 media outlets, like…US NEWS,  Psychology Today, CNBC, PBS Roadtrip Nation, FORBES, FORBES Leadership, Proctor & Gamble Parent, Teen Life and a bunch of other places (That’s a lot. …I know right!?) 

But enough about me. How can I help you make your difference?
