Why choose me for your next event?

I am tired of seeing young women settle.

For over 20 years, I have worked with youth and young women. I have watched energetic confident eight-year-olds lose their footing and never fully recover to find their true strength and possibility for themselves in this world. The middle school and high school years take a toll on girls even with all of the programs and support systems that are available for them. Upon graduating from high school access to those systems dissolve and a cavernous gap emerges where there is little to no support and these young ladies are supposed to magically become responsible adults overnight. 

I'm taking a stand to bridge this gap. Young women need to know just how incredible they are and that they are capable of creating unimaginable dreams for themselves. My focus is on empowerment and strength. What are you waiting for?
