Exponentially Elevate Your Leadership Impact 

I help women in education exponentially elevate their impact in leadership. 

With over 30 years in education in both K-12 and higher education as a teacher, athletic trainer, and administrator, I have seen first-hand the struggles and challenges along with the successes and celebrations of women in educational leadership.

My entire focus and goal is to empower women in educational leadership to become transformational and positive leaders in education. I promise dynamic interactions, research-based content, thought-provoking engagement, and actionable takeaways. My unique abilities as a strategist and connector empower clients to create truly exceptional outcomes.

Exponentially Elevate Your Impact

In today’s higher educational environment there is more to leadership than merely a title or position. Every position in education is one of leadership full of emerging leaders. However, the most common challenge that holds women in education back is based on courage and confidence. When women learn how to become equipped and empowered, uncertainty turns into confidence, courage, and ultimately a transformational leader.


As women in education, we must decide to make a change, discover ourselves in the process, and defy the odds to step into a leadership role we desire.
