                                                        Level Up Your Leadership – Increase Your Happiness & Success
I work with ambitious, motivated executives and business owners to help move them
past obstacles and forward quicker and with less stress on the ideas and goals that
bring them joy, fulfillment, and success. Sometimes we are so busy being busy, we
get stuck in fight and flight energy and miss out on great opportunities.

If you are looking to level up your business, studies consistently show that having

a strategic partner providing support and accountability toward your most
important goals and aspirations greatly increases the likelihood you will achieve
them quicker, with less stress, and more completely.

Often we feel stuck, unaligned or unauthentic in our jobs, want to be better leaders,

or want to go in a new direction. Let's connect and see what your next steps will
be toward fulfillment and success in your business and beyond.

Some background on me:

I directed TFI’s popular MiniTrends Conference Series for three years.
This gave me the opporutunity to work directly with top leaders on
an ongoing basis. This has resulted in being able to provide my
clients with excellent insight to how to be the best leader possible.

After putting together a list of best practices for keeping companies
innovative in 2011, I co-authored with Dr. John Vanston the book MiniTrends: How Innovators & Entrepreneurs Discover & Profit From Business & Technology Trends.

Many leaders have implemented ideas from my consulting, the MiniTrends Conferences, and the MiniTrends book to build amazing organizations.

In addition to coaching, consulting, and leadership energy program, I enjoy speaking on creating and building engaged, innovative, and transformational businesses. Presentations have included World Future Society, IEEE, University Sage Program, and many more.

My certifications provide additional value to my clients:

  • Professional Coaching Certification:  Institute of Professional
    Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) (a prestigious, intensive 9-month program)
  • Certified Master Practitioner for Energy Leadership Index
  • Certified Khorus Consultant for its CEO performance software.

I also have a strong marketing, media, and social media background developed as Vice President of Communications at Technology Futures, Inc., which has proven invaluable to my clients.

I am honored to participate in many wonderful groups:

  • Affiliate Member of the National Speakers Association
  • Austin Chapter of International Coaching Federation
  • Association of Corporate Growth
  • National President's Advisory Group  – Academy of Culture Ambassadors
  • Austin Chapter Leadership Team – Academy of Culture Ambassador

In addition to the MiniTrends book, an article I wrote for Texas CEO Magazine titled "Five Keys to An Engaged and Innovative Culture" was in the top 5 articles read that year. Most recently, I was  honored to be part of Austin's National Speaker Association's book with a chapter titled "Crucial Keys to a Thriving Business Culture."

On the personal side, I love to dance, travel, and spend time with my two children. 

So there you have it! If you are ready to take the next steps to achieving happiness and success in your business and beyond, call me at (512) 740-9089 and let's talk about where you are and where you want to be!
