In 2005, I packed my belongings into a station wagon and drove across the country alone to start a new chapter in my life. Making such a radical change would have been impossible without encouragement and support from my family, friends and colleagues. This is one of the reasons I call myself a Professional Encourager and not just an author, educator or coach.
I do have a great educational background that I worked very hard to earn and of which I’m proud. Yet, I know it isn’t my degrees in Humanities and Management that always interest clients, but my willingness to listen and my eagerness to inspire.
Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to teach in a variety of settings, including traditional classrooms, professional workshop settings and online platforms. I’ve spoken to diverse groups of all sizes. Most important of all, I’ve received letters, emails, phone calls, and excited in person announcements that my students and clients have secured jobs, promotions, and achieved their goals after working with me. There is no greater honor.
