What do you get when you combine a mermaid, a soldier, and a jazz enthusiast? A woman who has extensive experience in overcoming adversity, basks in life’s complexities along its with simple pleasures, and is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her dreams.

I was born and raised in small-town industrialized Canton, Ohio, the Football Hall of Fame city, where football is a secondary religion and our families are our world. My journey has brought me  to the San Francisco Bay area where I follow a new religious practice called Sunday brunch that indulge in when I am not collaborating with other social good organizations to build community.

I work in the technology industry where I provide technical and communications expertise to deliver cutting-edge products and services globally. I became a communications expert as a military intelligence professional in the US Army which allowed me to develop a more enlightened perspective of the world. You can catch me speaking in the Bay area on topics such communication in the workplace, diversity and inclusion, and using technology for social good. Although, I have had an interesting ride thus far I knew I wanted more. I found the John Maxwell Team when I decided that I would develop my speaking, training, teaching and coaching experience to the world class level. Since joining the team, I have noticed the quantum leap in personal growth and career development. I feel like I am finally in alignment with myself and the universe. 

I enjoy scuba diving in exotic locations like the Grand Cayman Islands. My next diving trips will be to Belize and Australia. On Thursday evenings, you can find me at Antonio’s latin dance club in downtown Mountain View, CA, perfecting Argentine tango and salsa dance styles.
