About Me

I Love People & I Love Words

Combining them both makes my heart sing and it’s also the foundation of my life’s work. We’ve all heard the saying that communication is the key to success, and I always follow that by asking, “Yes, but what specific doors does it unlock?” To me, learning how to communicate effectively unlocks the door to healthy relationships in life, love, and business. 

That’s important because relationships are life’s greatest currency and communication is the transaction by which we build our interpersonal wealth. Knowing how to do it right doesn’t always come easily, however, and that’s where I come in.

I am a communication strategist and trainer who helps people understand how their personality impacts the way they communicate, engage with others, and navigate the world around them. My work marries my experience as a former (award-winning) adjunct professor, certified life coach, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Certified Practitioner, speaker, executive coach, and corporate professional. I am also a newly enrolled student in the USC Rossier Organizational Change and Leadership Ed.D. program. (Notice a pattern here? I love to learn and infuse that learning into everything I do!)

This journey has led me to work with amazing people who have trusted me to help them tell their story at places like Harvard, SXSW, TEDx events, professional conferences, and many more. I gave my own TEDx Talk in 2020, entitled, “Ask Better Questions to Build Better Connections,” and I’m really proud of it. 

My book, “Can We Talk? 10 Life Lessons on Finding Your Voice and Finding Yourself” was published in 2017 and my super-popular Can We Talk Cards are a favorite among folks who need an easy way to take the guesswork out of small talk. 

On a personal note, I am a married mom of two, proud lefty, and card-carrying member of Beyoncè’s BeyHive. I love to read, eat delicious food, and talk on the phone with my friends (because…extrovert. But I’m sure you guessed that already). Thanks for stopping by!
