My Journey

My journey began in a small town, where I discovered the importance of compassion and resilience. Over the years, I navigated the challenges of leadership, driven by a heart-centered approach. From early roles to becoming an executive and leadership coach, my path has been one of growth, learning, and dedication to empowering others through The Heart-Centered Leadership Playbook.

The Beginning

Birth & Early Childhood

Being born marks our entry into a world which can be shaped by circumstances beyond our control. My early years, were greatly influenced by my environment and upbringing, laying the foundation for my identity. Despite these beginnings, my journey has been about discovering my path, overcoming challenges, and shaping my destiny. We are only as good as what we inherit, but finding our way defines our true potential. It is my birthright.

My Irish Nana

My Irish Nana set the foundation for my beliefs and morals.  She taught me that not all people would be kind - but nevertheless, I always have the opportunity to pause and control how I respond to them and navigate each situation.   I have this picture of her above my desk at my home office so that she is with me daily.  I am who I am today because of this extraordinary woman I was blessed to have had as my Nana.
