Experienced and Tested

With 30+ years of experience, I only teach topics around which I have kicked some ass. I’m proven.

Inspiring and Funny

I’ve been told that I’m inspiring. And funny. You’ll have to see for yourself. One thing for sure is that you won’t forget the lesson at hand.

People Mover

I not only train, I move people to do something differently. I understand the individual and the organization. Influence is my calling card.


Through my writing and coaching, I hope to help you through your own personal change.


Donna Highfill worked with my team on changing behaviors. She energized us, shared valuable information, and my team is all the better for it.

You Have More Power Than You Think

Yes, you. The person who looks in the mirror each morning and says, “ugh.” The person who takes out the trash and curses when the bag breaks. The same human being who occasionally wonders if there’s anything beyond this crazy world...

The Things We Do for Those We Love

My husband’s not sleeping well due to his cancer treatments. As a result, he’s slightly irritable. I now understand how he felt when I was going through menopause. Last night he tossed and turned until I actually dreamed that I was...

What the Mick Jagger of Birds Taught Me
