I'm excited and looking forward to having the opportunity to bring value to your event as a Keynote Speaker and introduce you to the proven tools and resources I offer that will empower, inspire and accelerate your ability to reach your life and career goals.
First, I’d like to share a bit of my life experience with you, it has been my greatest teacher.
For more than 15 years I’ve been an advocate for mental health. It is one of many experiences that has helped to propel me into speaking and coaching.
It all began with my sister's diagnosis - paranoid schizophrenia. Accompanying her on this unexpected journey resulted in a process that brought me closer to my humanity through a study of human behavior and a realization of our profound ability to survive, create and thrive.
As a lifelong learner & licensed minister my foundational principles for embracing the evolution that life demands of us all, are based in the immutable and universal truths of the Bible. These revolutionary life tools have been a catalyst for my understanding of the human soul. ie. the will, mind and emotional life that informs our perception and interpretation of life.
My experience as a trained method actor also provided techniques that helped me face my fears and heal from childhood trauma and the behavior that ensued. Acting furthered my understanding of how to unlock the why behind human behavior. It also provided me with invaluable tools as a personal development coach.
The application of creative business strategies allowed me to establish two successful international careers that I am grateful to have enjoyed as a professional model & cover girl, based in NYC with top agencies there, and later as a working film & television actor in both Los Angeles, NYC as well as a fabulous five month adventure in Rome, Italy where I met the infamous director Federico Fellini and was directed by the beloved singer/actor, Adriano Celentano. Back in the US, my career included among others, a featured role in Francis Ford Coppola's, The Cotton Club, and my first series regular role for HBO directed by the the amazingly gifted Carl Franklin. While working with these esteemed and celebrated artist, I inherited a deep appreciation for the masters of the craft of filmmaking and their ability to effect our understanding of the human narrative. These encounters influenced my decision to attend Santa Monica College Film School where I received degrees in both Film Production and International Film Studies.
In 2008 I founded the InsideOut Group where I launched my career as a speaker, coach, and mentor to both business professionals, entrepreneurs and creative talent. Inspired by these wonderfully talented people, I began to create tools and techniques that facilitate the convergence of life experiences, innate gifts, talents and skillsets which empowers and accelerates one's ability to create sustainable success in both life and business.
Both my personal and professional experiences have incentivized every choice I've made as a keynote speaker as well as the decision to become a certified life and business coach. Along with speaking, I continue developing transformative online & live trainings, courses, workshops and events that support the lives and careers of small business owners, entrepreneurs and artistic individuals and that inspire and motivate them as they pursue success.
It's amazing how our life experiences unwittingly nurtures our ability to create a life that can empower others while also fulfilling our personal vision of a purpose driven life.
