Press, Media & Motivational Speaking
FROM A WAR ZONE TO THE BOARD ROOM
After rescuing children in war torn South Sudan for 7 years and starting an international development project from scratch that is still impacting thousands, I returned to Florida to launch a branding and business development consultancy dedicated to helping small businesses and creatives harness the power of story-led growth to build brands that matter™ (brands that exist for a purpose meet profit alone).
I've made a lifelong career of being an overcomer. I was born with severe birth defects requiring 23 surgeries by the age of 13. But these same challenges have given me amazing credibility to encouraging others that seeming impossibilities can become our life's greatest opportunities. I've worked to develop and inspire leaders onsite in India, Bangladesh, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Even though my idea of camping is still a day spa and I believe mascara is a survival essential, I lived from 2006-2013 in a war zone in South Sudan without running water or electricity leading & growing the work she founded.
I bring 25+ years of international consulting, motivational speaking and training experience, as well as heart-felt intuition, finely-honed creativity and dedicated passion to see leaders, businesses, and organizations thrive from the inside out. And have the tools they need to leave a legacy in their communities and the world at large.
