Ask Them Better Questions!
Partial Client List
As a girl growing up in a small town in Louisiana, I was never sure exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up. I did, however, always know one thing: that I wanted to be in charge.
That curiosity and obsession with leadership in all its forms has taken me away from my rural roots, and down a career path in hospitality, consulting and leadership-development training with companies including Walt Disney World and The Disney Institute. I’ve spent the past two decades working in diverse fields and along the way compiled insights that I am now lucky enough to share with thousands of people at a time.

Engaging, No Holds Barred Leadership Speaker
When I speak at events or businesses, it’s important to me that any audience I face feels truly connected, inspired and engaged. I’ve learned through the years that there is no better way to connect with someone than through the power of authentic, no-holds-barred storytelling.
Maybe it’s my life long connection to great stories, maybe it’s my years in the hospitality business, maybe it’s because I just love people — but time and time again I hear from my audiences that my unique approach to storytelling helps put complex strategies into a clear and simple perspective they have never considered before.
So, what stories can I bring to your next event? I can’t wait to find out!
It takes the average person approximately 12 hours to use 1 gigabyte of data, yet our brain consumes 75 gigabytes a day! How incredible is that? One of the challenges is that we don’t retain all of that data and we lose what we have learned. What is one of the best ways to retain what we have learned? I am glad you asked! The best way to retain what we learn is actually to teach it back to someone. Hence, the Weekly Wisdom was born. This weekly vlog was created to pass along an interesting piece of information that I learned that week in the hopes of spreading something interesting but also to help retain the information. And the dream is to have you share with me what you have learned that week as well. Take a look around, let me know which ones you like and what topics you would like to see. Did you learn something interesting this week? I bet you did! Share what you learned in the comments. And don’t forget…You got this!
