Get to know me!
I was asked to speak at a woman's conference about rebuilding in the wake of challenge. After a global pandemic, economically we will continue to rebuild. However, rebuilding starts with a more internal journey. Your mindset is what will help rebuild you.
It is a true honor to be recognized 2021 NYS Woman of Distinction by our Senator Sue Serino, I share my stories, my truth, my phrase wake up, dress up, own your day for you all to remember that you are in control, of the good days and of the bad days. I never thought my phrase would be so powerful, for so many. Its more than a phrase, its a decision to be you, to be in competition with no one but yourself, to know that you are strong, you are confident, you are grace. You are amazing simply by being you.
Being recognized by a woman like Sue Serino who has faced countless struggles herself is a true honor, and I am so grateful to have met her.

When I'm not building my dreams I am reading, learning and working on becoming a better human every single day.
My favorite things include spending time with my kids. Rainy days snuggling in bed with my husband. A good book that empowers, inspires and educates. Meeting people that I can learn from or help inspire.
