Official Bio (kinda)

I have over 20 years’ experience advising, coaching and facilitating leaders and teams who wish to make a difference in their life and the world around them. I’ve been mentored by many amazing professionals in the leadership field and worked in a multitude of industries, from start-up companies to Fortune 500 organizations. My corporate resume says I was a corporate executive, a sales leader and an entrepreneur. 
My personal journey has led me to dive deep into what makes a person successful. Not just customary success, but real, feel-it-in-your-bones success. The kind that goes beyond financial attainment and leads to personal fulfillment.


It’s my insatiable appetite for understanding why some people are more successful and happier than others that led me to use unconventional methods of training and coaching. The combination of my leadership experience and personal journey allows me to help others in their business and personal life. 


In 2011, I founded Maxed (Indieglow's sister company) with the bold intention of making the world a better place by providing the necessary tools for people to authentically lead their lives, their departments and their organizations. For more information on Maxed go to
