After more than twelve (12) years as a Consultant (Small and Women-Owned businesses, and for-profit Social Enterprises), I came to the realization that although I had found formulas for everyone else, I had none that worked for me. What began as a brief hiatus, has through many ups, downs, disappointments and perseverance, led me to create spaces for my own voice and unique blend of skills, and platforms for others to do the same.
While I never set out to be any of these things, the creative spaces I dwell in now, continue to provide opportunities to do what I love most – grow ideas from concept to launch, encourage others to challenge the notion of impossible, and create solutions that connect, empower, and engage women. If you have ever participated in 90 Days to Launch, #StrongWomenWrite, or any of my virtual events, you have experienced this firsthand and know what I mean. I hope my forthcoming projects will continue in this path, but on an even broader scale and with greater impact
On a personal note, I am vegan, collect red umbrellas, set aside time for tea daily, and treasure my husband and children; cheering them on as they pursue their dreams. In the midst of it all, I do my best to keep God first, family second, and all else, third.
