About Me


Building Connections

After I published my first book, Let Me Be Your Coach, I knew I wanted to dedicate myself to writing more books that could motivate, inspire, and encourage our youth to never give up on their dreams!  I am excited to bring my message to conferences, schools, colleges, and other events to share my BEGIN acronym(Believe in Yourself, Empower, Get up and set GOALS, Initiate those goals, and Never Give Up)! Whether as a keynote speaker or a workshop leader, I help encourage and motivate others to set and reach unbelievable goals based on BEGIN and my own life changing experiences.   "Giving pieces of me in places where others can be nurtured and grow is my destiny"...I leave each event and speaking engagement feeling like I've made a difference and that brings a smile to my heart!"





          GET UP! GOALS!


                NEVER GIVE UP!



Workshops and Keynotes

As a  writer and speaker with a passion to give our children and young adults a foundation to reach their dreams, I help them learn how to stay focused on their goals and overcome obstacles.  Contact me, and we can design a workshop or presentation that fits the needs that you have today.




Bullying is not a new issue that has somehow appeared out of nowhere.  It has become an increasingly more devastating issue that is becoming detrimental to children and parents everywhere.  My second book,"Brandon the Bully Meets Nina No-More" is about eleven year old Brandon who likes to cause trouble and pick on kids smaller than him until a girl half his size, Nina-No-More, teaches him and his friends the "BEGIN" acronym.  

Our children deserve the chance to go to school to learn and be motivated to do their best, excel and look forward to the future without the fear of being bullied!  As a victim of childhood , high school, and adult bullying, I give first hand advice to children being bullied so that they can have a foundation for coping, as well as parents, educators and bullies on how we can work together to help stop these unfortunate actions. 


The Real Connection

When you know your purpose, you want to live, share, and motivate others through your purpose!  When I was around 4 years old, I remember playing in my front yard, deep in the country , with my oldest brother near by.  Out of nowhere,  a huge bird picked me up into the air.  Luckily, my oldest brother was near by, picked up a rock and threw it at the bird.  The bird dropped me to the ground.  That moment signifies for me my purpose that God has a lot more for me to do for others.  To share with others.  My purpose is to inspire, motivate, and encourage others to NEVER GIVE UP!
