About Me

My encounter with a middle-school bully sparked a curiosity within me about what helps people confront the risks and challenges facing them. That lasting curiosity morphed into a deep interest in courage, leading me to become a speaker, author and coach who helps emerging leaders at universities and organizations activate personal courage in order to perform to their full potential at work and in the world.

I’ve spent over a decade researching courage, and I combine that research with my experiences leading marketing teams at a global brand, starting a business, and traveling the world solo. This unique combination taught me that courage is a superpower everyone has access to but that most people don’t know how to ignite.

Through my keynotes, workshops and coaching programs, I help people understand and activate personal courage in order to take worthwhile risks and make moves toward their most meaningful goals — goals like speaking up, standing out and staying true to themselves.

I’m so grateful to do this work and witness young leaders put the courage pieces together to level up their personal and professional lives.
