Fierce: showing a heartfelt and powerful intensity
Where I live: Chicago, Illinois
What I do for work: I help motivated & results-driven women break through career plateaus, accelerate their impact and income, and empower them to become Fearless, Ambitious, Strong and Trailblazing (FAST) in business and in life.
3 words my friends would use to describe me: Risk-taker, Intelligent, Inspiring
My vision of a perfect Saturday: Reading a good book with a cup of coffee in the morning, then a long walk at the park with my co-pilot Lucy (my 11 year old rescued Korean Jindo mix pup).
My top 3 personal or professional WINS from the last month: Sent my first book, "Fall In Love With Monday Mornings: The Career Woman's Guide to Increasing Impact, Influence, and Income" to my publisher following the last round of edits. Release date June 2015. Enrolled another ideal client into my 1:1 coaching program. Was selected as the next Vice President of the National Speakers Association - Illinois Chapter for 2015-2016.
My 2-sentence definition of success: Creating a professional and personal life full of opportunities to excel, flexibility to maintain balance, and curiosity to pursue new ventures and growth. Success, for me, is living in abundance.
The most courageous thing I did in the last year: Took the leap from the corporate grind to start my own business - FAST Women in Business.
The advice I would give to my younger self: Trust, have faith and allow.
A book that changed my life: There are so many! Right now I'm participating in a 90-day Prosperity Challenge by reading "The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace D. Wattles.
What change are you working to create in your life, community or through your work? My vision is to empower women to create success and wealth in their own lives by redefining the concept around leadership. We are all leaders - by choice or by default. By leading from within, one can stay in alignment with one's inner compass to build success with fulfillment.
