As a Licensed Consultant for The Standards for Excellence®, I work with nonprofit organizations across the country interested in learning about, conducting self assessments, implementing change, and becoming accredited in the Standards for Excellence program. The Standards for Excellence code identifies 6 major areas of nonprofit governance and management which contain 27 different topic areas. Each topic area includes specific benchmarks and measures that provide a structured approach to building capacity, accountability, and sustainability in your organization.
Hi there! I am so grateful to have found my sweet spot at the intersection of my personal, professional and passionate life as these are the things that fuel my purpose :)
PERSONALLY, I'm a native Washingtonian that currently lives in the suburbs of Washington, DC with my husband and 8 year old daughter.
PROFESSIONALLY, I'm a real life super hero. By day I work on behalf of non-profit, private sector and government clients to educate staff on issues that affect children and families such as mental health and child maltreatment.
PASSIONATELY, by night, I engage with women and girls both online and in-person to share stories, strategies and resources for living an inspired life.

DC born and bred, I am one of few native Washingtonians that remain in the area, I was raised in a loving home full of women and am blessed to have had an amazing childhood that exposed me to my unlimited potential. In college I discovered my passion for children and families. It is quite the experience to discover the world through the lens of a child. This coupled with the belief that family is everything to a child is what continues to drive that passion nearly 20 years later.
I believe that we are all born with everything we need in order to be as happy, healthy and productive as we choose. My goal is to help others recognize and tap into this often overlooked internal resource in order to inspire each other to live the life we've always wanted.
