It's So Great To Meet You...

I am a Jacksonville-born-and-raised native-Floridian who often has sand in my hair, a bit paint on my hands and a cup of coffee at my side.  I dream ginormous dreams and I know the impossible can happen because I have seen it.  In the slums of Calcutta, in the villages of Central Asia, in war torn Africa.  Again and again and again.  I got to be there to see the world’s newest nation be born from the ashes of war and rescue hundreds of children see them find new hope and a future.

I bring 20 years of branding, communications and organizational development experience to the table.  I’ve worked with small businesses, leaders, entrepreneurs, international non-profits, ministries and creatives to create and implement brand identity, communication and organizational strategies onsite in 15+ nations.  I've had the privilege to impact current and emerging leaders through my writings in well over 100 nations.

My 7 years in South Sudan taught me many things. I learned that I simply love, love, love seeing people fly higher, soar further and dive deeper than I can.  I love to equip and empower the people around me to turn their impossibilities into stepping stones.  And I know that can happen because I have lived it.  Every. Single. Day.

The very same things I offer to you are exactly the understandings I honed starting an international faith-based development base with a children’s rescue home, primary school, community projects and outreaches that still impact thousands today.  From scratch.  In a war zone.  With no running water or electricity.  With people shooting at us and less than 2 miles of paved anything in the entire region-turned-country.  With everyone telling me I was insane for going in on my own.  With almost no funding and few hundred dollars in my pocket. Ok, maybe sanity is slightly overrated. ;-)

I know a bit about seeing impossibilities bow.  And I’d love nothing more than to share the journey with you as we cultivate your dream.  Together.
