As a transformational trainer and international speaker, I bring a new perspective to improving performance and professional results.
Businesses usually try to improve performance through training on technical skills and hoping that it leads to an increase in productivity and financial results. I know - I've done that too.
Technical training is great, but what if we could accelerate its effectiveness by adding a new approach? My techniques combine skills training and mindfulness practices to give training attendees better clarity, increased energy and more drive to take action.
As a motivational speaker and expert in mindfulness, habit-building and energy, I create experiential trainings and keynotes that help increase business results through tangible self-development actions.
I've spent over a decade in franchising helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses. But my experience with franchise owners actually started at age three. That's when we moved to Florida so my parents could run their own franchise business.
During my career, I've supported franchise owners and an array of employees through roles as a business coach, operations specialist, franchise speaker and as an adult learning expert.
I've hosted trainings worldwide in areas like: improving the client experience, increasing sales, growing profitability, leadership, change management, keynote speaker, effective communication and marketing strategies.
Fun Fact: Did you know you can kill succulents? I'm also an expert at that :)
I'm a Texas native living in Denver, Colorado. After receiving my degree in International Studies from Baylor University, I began my career in franchising with Curves International®, one of the largest fitness franchises in the world. I spent my time in franchise operations and training, hosting trainings in several countries. I also lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand.
I also helped grow Xtend Barre®, a boutique fitness franchise, with locations in five countries. When I relocated to Colorado, I began working as a senior business coach for the Elements Massage® franchise owners and lead training in my current role of operations and training. I love serving as a franchise speaker and motivational speaker around the world.
I have also taught mindfulness practices and group exercise classes for years (so I know how to energize a room full of people!). I love blending my background in business development with fitness, meditation, mindfulness and adult learning.
If you're new to the term "mindfulness" check out this article. It's gives a great overview and benefits of the concept. In general, I use the term to define presence, a sense of peace, and intentional focus that is accessible to everyone at any time.
