Best Story

I love to share my story about the challenges being a female leader and marriage. I found that I was taking my leadership role too seriously and it spilled into the home. My story about my challenges and triumphs are enlightening and engaging.

Origin Story

I realized that I am not the only female leader who dealt with challenges of leadership and marriage. Conversations and coaching allowed for women and myself to find harmony in both worlds.
