Business Consultant, Speaker, and Best-selling Author
When I was 7 years old, a beautician asked me how I’d like my hair cut. My answer? Like Tom
Browkaw! Then I begged my parents to buy me a suit dress.
Like you, I had this sense that I was meant to do something amazing with my life. Hair like the
guy I watched tell me about world events and a dress like the people I saw doing important
things, was my first step.
Before creating my business, I spent the first 18-years of my career in big public accounting
firms. During this time, I mentored and consulted with hundreds of professionals and businesses,
and for the last 7 of those 18 years, I was a partner at Deloitte.
I always knew I’d start a business, at some point. But I struggled, and my fear of leaving Deloitte
was so great that I nearly broke down before I finally decided to move on. It was so hard to break
away from the vision of success that I had been raised to believe.
How did I redefine success for myself and build a thriving entrepreneurial consulting business
and write a bestselling book within two years of leaving Deloitte?
I connected my knowledge and experiences to my passions to find my real why, got clear on the
life I want to live, and aligned my business vision with my life vision. Now I’m driven to help
others do the same.
As a consultant, speaker, and author, I help accomplished but unfulfilled professionals break free
of everyone else’s definitions of success and use their authentic ambition to build thriving
purpose-driven businesses and lives they love.
I have an undergraduate degree in Accounting from Kent State University, a Juris Doctor from
The University of Akron School of Law, and a Master Degree in Tax from The University of
My husband, Son, and I call Amherst, OH home, but we’re self-proclaimed travel addicts and
you can often find us exploring the world, near and far.
