What To Expect

Here’s what you can expect from me:

  • Prompt, replies to your telephone or email requests.
  • A personal phone consultation with me prior to your event, so I can understand how I can best serve you and your audience.
  • An announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels. (If your event is open to the public and you want additional publicity for it.)

  • A quick follow-up communication after the event with me, to make sure I met your expectations.

About Me

I am a former scientific researcher, who transitioned into early stage technology commercialization, and rose rapidly up the ranks to become Director in just 7 short years. I have been a leader in a number of university and research-based healthcare organizations before I transitioned again into entrepreneurship. I have spoken at national and international scientific conferences and technology commercialization events as well as at smaller shark tank and workshop type of events.

My passion is to develop people into better leaders, to give  them the tools to perform at a higher level, and the clarity of vision to follow their dreams.

My writing has been published in The Huffington Post, Thrive Global, She Owns It, and Plaid for Women.

I have been happily married to my husband, Todd, for twelve years. We have two daughters and a rescued Labrador dog. We live outside of Raleigh / Durham, North Carolina. In my free time, I enjoy reading, riding my bike and exercising.


I speak on topics related to:

  • Leadership
  • Work/life Balance
  • Productivity
  • High Performance
  • Career Advancement and Transition
