Speaker, Coach/Mentor and Media
NOV 2018 UPDATE - I am currently undergoing a rebrand and this site is under construction. The big news is that after being a coach and mentor for 20 years in the nonprofit industry (until 2013), I am now returning to the field and getting certified as a bespoke wellness coach.
So this site will have a facelift November 2018 to move more of my ‘media’ into a separate section and to put more the coaching and speaking in the forefront.
I’m quite excited to both return to my former passion and expand what I am already doing in media and public speaking.
So WATCH THIS SPACE as it will look very different in the next month!!
