My Personal Passion:
Oh, I remember it all too well! Graduating from university with a degree as a young lady and ready to conquer the world, with my diploma in one hand and my carefully crafted resume in the other. After a few years in corporate world, it became clear to me that in order to advance, the diploma was good, and the resume was helpful but there was something missing. I even went back to obtain a second degree. It was after several years of working that it became clear, those things are great, but there's quite a bit more required for success in the workplace than the instructor led curriculum. Some skills are not taught in the classroom, yet in order to achieve recognition I needed to be aware of them. Why were some getting promoted faster than I was? After all, I was "just as qualified." During my career and time in leadership, marketplace & ministry, there have been mentors that showed me the way. I am passionate about passing on the tools and resources that women require, when growth and expansion in the workplace and business is desired. My greatest desire is to position women of all levels & backgrounds for great opportunity and overwhelming success in career, business, ministry and life.
