Your legacy is my mission.  I equip, empoweraffirm and encourage your best self to move forward.


































My book, Believe, Begin, Become: Affirmations to Remember What You Know is a book of reminders and affirmations to remind you to believe in you. 


You are amazing, worthy, safe, and equipped. You have purpose and passion.  I am your coach, reminder and cheerleader to believe in yourself and act like it.


I'm also a Speaker, Author, Facilitator and Diversity and Inclusion Practitioner and Strategic Learning and Development Partner.  At heart I am a teacher. Instructional design and coaching are not only skills I've acquired, they are at the heart of my purpose; to help fuel your progress.  


From Corporate universities to recovery support groups I help people ignite their inner leadership, connect  and level-up.

I have a Masters in Information and Learning Technologies, with  a concentration in eLearning Design and Implementation. I am an instructional designer and master facilitator with over 25 years of leadership development experience. 


I create highly engaging and experiential learning processes focused on motivating behavioral change.

I facilitate classroom, virtual, and blended training.  My experience in design, development, facilitation, an assessment is grounded in adult learning principles and the user experience. 

I work with leaders to support their growth.  I work with people in recovery and people who are seeking recovery reclaim their best selves.

I utilize design approaches that focus the training experience, and minimizes the time between knowledge transfer and practical application. Using ADDIE, SAMR  and strong project management skills I provide clients with on-time, quality deliverables that impact learner performance and promote behavioral change.


Over the years, I have developed expertise in a broad range of software and media tools to support training development and LMS integration.  I am also data driven.  I created the first LMS The Home Depot ever had in Microsoft Access. 

I've worked in various learning and development roles, including Master Trainer, Training Manager, Instructional Designer and Project Manager with organizations such as:  Facebook, SunTrust Bank, Chick-fil-A, HD Supply, Home Depot, The Coca-Cola Company, and Cox Automotive as well as many agencies within the federal government. I possess multiple trainer certifications including:

  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

  • DiSC

  • Diversity and Inclusion Master Trainer

  • Situational Leadership Certified

The Morning Cup

After 25 years in leadership development I believe the best leaders of people are those who lead themselves with compassion, introspection, curiosity, and self-awareness.  This inner-leadership includes knowing how to encourage yourself and practice resilience in the face of fear, challenge, and uncertainty.  From my book Believe, Begin, Become: Affirmations to Remember What You Know I created The Morning Cup, a short video affirmation series to center the viewer in positive energy and affirmation. 

Live Your Best Life

I live to learn, experience joy, and help others navigate the intricacies of leadership and life.


After working in Fortune 50's for 20+ years I opened my own company, Learning Path.


I named my Company Learning Path because learning and development is a constant, a process and personal.
