I grew up curious about the world but not all that confident about my place in it. As my career progressed, I’ve discovered my voice as a tool to empower others to help them accomplish their goals. I write to process challenges I’m working through in my professional and personal life. I’ve converted my journaling to a public blog so others might apply my insights and feel empowered to do that-terrifying-thing-you’ve-seen-others-do-but-weren’t sure-if-you-could. My style is optimistic, casual, and candid – with a dash of vulnerability, a quality I hope will help others realize they already have what they need to succeed.
