Everyone has a story and a truth the world needs to hear.
I believe we can change the world with our words. We need more seekers of purpose and speakers of truth.
I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to Eastern Illinois University for college. Shortly after graduating, I moved to New York City to become a television producer. Less than a year later, my sweet friend Shannon McNamara (pictured with me at left) was murdered near the EIU campus. It rocked me to my core.
I had to do something, so I started a company called Girls Fight Back (GFB). GFB conducts violence prevention seminars for women and girls. In less than a decade, I trained a team of speakers to give the seminar and over one million people experienced GFB at live events across the world. I ended up selling the company in 2013, and today I remain an advisor.
I started coaching TEDx speakers around that time, and created a message discovery process for these messages called The Dig. The deep authenticity from these speakers resulted in some powerful talks that went viral (including Ash Beckham, who is one of the Top 10 Most Viewed TEDx talks of all time). This launched my next company, evoso, where we help seekers find their purpose and speakers speak their truth.
I live, work and create from Boulder, Colorado where I am a mama to 2 wonderful kiddos. In my spare time, I am a painter, ukulele player and aspiring salsa dancer. If you have a story and a truth inside of you that’s ready to get outside of you, let’s talk.
