Biography

After a successful 23-year career in commercial real estate, after a life-altering detour with cancer, and because of a life affirming opportunity to experience 24/7 parenting with my three children during a critical time in their lives, I now focus my full-time efforts on being a forward-thinking, action-oriented and inspiring leader in both the cancer and parenting communities throughout the world. I use my multi-media platform to help people, businesses and brands find and spread the message that there is value and meaning waiting in life’s nooks and crannies.

I pack my presentations and keynotes with stories that serve as a call to action to people to overcome obstacles, embrace challenges and adversities, and believe there is value in every moment of their life. My own cancer journey has given me a clear message which has become the roadmap for my life and the foundation for my entire speaking platform.

I have extensive experience in speaking to groups of all sizes. I am at ease with a book club of 10, a school parent group of 100, a lunchtime service group of 150 or a corporate gathering of any size. I am grateful when I have the opportunity to speak to people whose lives have been impacted by cancer or any type of adversity. I have a spectrum of stories to share - depending on the specific goals of the group. What I can assure you is I will deliver a story that will move, motivate and inspire.
