I am an honest, professional, open minded woman, spiritually and emotionally aware.  I seek answers and purpose in everything I do.  For every action, there is a why and a how.  I seek to understand this and to share this knowledge with others.


I am regarded as a leading national expert on time management and stress management. My clients and supporters are inspired and encouraged by my work. I am a powerful communicator, educator, mentor and coach.


I empower others by sharing my knowledge through speaking, seminars and abundant online resources. I constantly grow and evolve by continuing to learn and listening to others.


  1. To work with Integrity
    My belief is that by being honest and transparent with my clients, they, in turn, will be honest and transparent with me, creating a stronger outcome.  The more we know; the more we can do.
  2. Pay it Forward
    If I can give value and create a difference in the lives of others with patience, kindness and thoughtfulness, they will too.
  3. Grow & Evolve
    To value knowledge through success & failure, praise & criticism and to allow business growth and evolution through both.
  4. Absorb the Pain, Share the Joy & Deflect the Glory
    Leading by example, I wish to encourage my clients to have the confidence to be the best leaders in their career or industry and in doing so, I will take the blows not pass the buck.  I will share the joy and rewards. I will allow my clients to reap the praise for work well done.
