If we only had 30 secs to get to know you. What would you want us to know?
I am lover of God, mom of 2, wife to 1, Entrepreneur, War Veteran, volunteer, Leader of Leaders, and bikini fitness competitor. Most of these descriptors pushed for me to get out of my comfort zone; and when I did happiness and success became a state of being. I personally don’t believe there is a secret sauce to success. There is just discipline, decisions, and determination. The great news is that those are all FREE! It just starts with a decision.

My favorite pastime is volunteering and any activity where I can encourage, inspire, and empower people to pursue their passion. Life is short. Do ONLY what you love and loves you back. The top three organizations that get most of my volunteer time are: Sailing Angels, BEAUTY Mentoring, and PEP (Prison Entrepreneurship Program). I also enjoy reading a good book! My recent favorite is Essentialism by Greg McKweown. If you would like to do less but more, this is a must read!
I’m currently working on a podcast show. It’s called SPARC a conversation! It’s geared to workplace conversations that just aren’t had in the workplace. As an HR Leader, I’m on a mission to bridge the conversational gaps between employers and employees. I hope you stay tuned, so you can join in the conversation. Let’s talk about everything you can't say in your workplace and more.
