Let’s put things in perspective:

That means there are 51.8 trillion volts of energy within you!

The average person has 37 trillion cells in their body. 

Each cell has 1.4 volts of energy.

The most powerful recorded lightning bolt was 300 million volts.

The potential within you right now is 172,666 times more powerful than the most powerful lightning bolt recorded!

DAILY ACTION CREATES

ACTIVATION LEADS TO

ACTION.

Twenty-five years of HR, recruitment, and coaching experience taught me that self-confidence is the spark that activates human potential, AKA the awesome. It’s a life skill that complements the rest of your skills and tools. And I believe activating the awesome is the missing link to success. 

You’ve already tried “shelf-help” — personal development tips from books or online courses like gratitude lists, mindfulness, exercise routines, and meditation. The new practices help a bit, but they rarely stick. Eventually, you put the ideas (and routines) back on the shelf and wonder what’s wrong with you.

Well, I’m here to tell you that there’s nothing wrong with you! You’re already awesome, exactly as you are. You just don’t know how to activate it yet.

I’ve interviewed thousands of people, from new graduates to CEOs. Many weren’t connected to their true identity. This disconnect led to stress, anxiety, and depression. They felt disillusioned and overwhelmed. Yes, it’s the norm for many people, but it doesn’t have to be your norm.


OR ONLY GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS IN LIFE?

ARE YOU REALLY LIVING

What if your entire being said and believed these statements?

I CAN achieve my goals and create the future of my dreams!

I AM confident!

I AM AWESOME!

I AM worthy!

How would your life change?

Once you see your strengths and Activate the A.W.E.S.O.M.E.®, it’s easy to get excited about life. You start pushing your comfort zone. You confidently (and consistently) take action. And when life gets challenging, you aren’t afraid to lean on your support system so you can continue creating a future that aligns with your dreams.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO IT ALONE.

you don’t have to do it alone.

Want to own your identity and become the best version of yourself?  Whether you’re a teen, a recent graduate, or just feeling stuck, I can help unlock your full potential. We’ll peel back the layers of thoughts (and habits) that hold you back while building confidence and an action plan. I especially love working with diverse humans. 

Let’s ignite confidence and build momentum! We’ll explore roots, experiences, skills, and contributions in a fun way that helps people embrace their strengths and connect with their tapestry of awesome. Short on time? Don’t stress. My workshops are 100% customizable for groups and individuals, with half-day, full-day, 4-week, and 8-week options. 

This isn’t your typical keynote. Empower your audience with an authentic message, relatable stories, and creative play that facilitates learning on a deeper level. My approach sparks acceptance, self-awareness, and belonging while building multicultural and generational bridges. 

Going through a career transition or impacted by layoffs?  I’ll help you see your worth, so you’re ready for interviews (and negotiations). We’ll review your skills, achievements, and experiences to craft a resume that makes recruiters go, “Wow, this applicant is AWESOME!”
