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.

Why Christmas Gave Me Pinkeye

  Take a look at most of my childhood Christmas pictures, and you will see my brother looking excited, my sister smiling at the camera, and me looking a lot like Captain Hook with one patch over a swollen eye. Every single...

Why Clydesdales Make Me Cry

  Something about the holidays makes me emotional, and not the one-tear-running-down-my-face kind of emotional. No, I cry like I’m watching Dumbo when the mother swings him in her trunk while she’s locked in a cage. I cry like THAT. Any...

As a leader, do you implement change only to watch the projects, processes and initiatives stall because you can’t get the people driving them to change? In my new book Real People, Real Change: Stories of a Change Warrior in the Business World I share real stories to illustrate how leaders can move people to action.

Young girls need a strong female hero who will help them understand and appreciate their power. After reading a story to my young niece about a young girl’s dream of wearing high heels and fancy dresses, I was reminded that girls need a shining example of the spirit within them – a spirit that is too often limited by the shallow expectations of a world that dims their light.
