My Dad Says I Got My Degree In Talking...
And he's not wrong. I have a BA in communications with an emphasis on leadership development training and the dramatic interpretation of literature. Basically I've been fascinated with leadership since I read my first John Maxwell book at 10 years old, thought understanding communication might be one of the most important journeys I could take and loved having a reason to read poetry out loud for class credit.
I gave my very first motivational speech to a room full of 300 community leaders when I was only 9 years old. Teetering on a stack of phone books just so I could reach the podium, I fell in love that day with empowering people to turn their impossibilities into stepping stones.
Some 30+ years and 24 countries later, connecting heart-to-heart and encouraging creatives, entrepreneurs & leaders is still one of my favorite things to do. With heart-felt intuition and dedicated passion to see leaders, businesses, and organizations thrive from the inside out, I am committed to helping entrepreneurs have the tools they need to leave a legacy in their communities and the world at large.
I've had the honor to share with tens of thousands of people all around the world at business, nonprofit, educational and faith-based events & venues over the last 3 decades.
SOME OF THE PLACES I'VE SPOKEN AT:
- Baylor University Staff & Students, Wesleyan University, Texas Tech Leadership Week, Yale Student Groups, FL State Student Groups, University of the Nations, Combined Student Ivy League Leadership Events, Church/Ministry Conferences, Seminaries and Training Schools, Leadership Training Schools in the USA, Europe, India & Africa
