Author | Speaker | Business & Branding Mentor | Life Enthusiast





Looking for good books to read? My memoir Own Your Other is the story of my husband’s sudden death in a helicopter crash, leaving me and my two and four-year-old daughters behind. The book is about learning how to “own your other,” by embracing times when you find yourself out of the norm, not fitting in, or experiencing setback. It is sprinkled with moments of love, humor, joy and the irony that life often presents along your journey. There are also six key takeaways/life lessons resulting from the loss that I share with readers. The main theme throughout the book is perseverance and triumph over tragedy or loss.



 As a motivational speaker and an innovator, I will bring inspiration and enthusiasm to your next event, consultation or project. I am available for workshops, presentations and videos. I have a diverse background in Business, Marketing, Branding, Video/Content Creation and Entrepreneurship. Additionally, as a person who has overcome personal tragedy, I present from the heart and pass on the key lessons I've learned along my journey. The main topics I speak about (but am not limited to) are: 

  • Triumphing over Tragedy or Setback
  • Personal Branding & Networking
  • Entrepreneurship & Innovation
  • Inspiration & Motivation
  • Marketing & Branding
  • Overcoming Grief and Loss
  • Owning Single Parenthood
  • Fostering Work-Life Balance

Contact me today, and we can design a workshop, video or presentation that fits your needs.



I am available for one-on-one mentoring sessions with entrepreneurs, business professionals and anyone who needs motivation, inspiration, or is struggling to overcome a loss or to obtain work/life balance.   My biggest fulfillment comes from working one on one with entrepreneurs, individuals and business professionals to hone their personal brands and further their business strategies and life goals.

I 've developed and lead a Digital Entrepreneurship MBA program and am also a Business and Branding Expert with Entrepreneur Media's Insider platform. I have a PhD in Marketing and an MBA. 

Contact me to get started today. I can't wait to begin working with you. You can book a session with me on Entrepreneur's Ask An Expert Platform.  I look forward to talking with you soon.
