HOME / TEAM
My passion and enthusiasm for creating positive school culture is based on shared leadership – including students as young as 5 years of age. I am taking charge to develop positive schools, organizations, and communities by sharing the importance of embracing a leadership mindset. The choice is always yours!
I believe we are all unique and possess the ability and/or power to "show up" as we choose. We can choose to continue to grow and increase our influence as long as we are on our journey. The choice is ours to completely embrace our unique self. My goal is to help the world become their best self through coaching, consulting, and mentoring.
