The Unknown Land

My Story.

I am an author, speaker, marketer, warrior leader and brand coach for visionaries who want to leverage their brand narrative by creating a captivating message to deepen client connection, transform awareness and reach a larger audience.

Since leaving the corporate world to empower others, I have helped compassionate clients become confident leaders with powerful stories, influential brands, industry recognition, and a redesigned online presence that enables them to transform thousands of individuals.


I'm a Certified Safe Conversations Leader and Brand Coach with more than 20 years of strategic marketing, sales, communication, and public relations experience. I have worked with national brands and start-ups, corporate and non-profit ranging from retail to real estate, hospitality to tourism and now focusing on the givers and healers. 

I primarily work with entrepreneurs that want to make a positive impact on people’s lives. Therapists, psychologists, artists, educators, and other big-hearted individuals that give back to humanity through their skillset and expertise. 

'm also a published author of a self-help memoir; A Warrior’s Ride to Shine: A guide to awaken your inner strength on a bicycle and the CEO of Female Warrior Co., a national women’s enterprise that creates mindful workplaces shaped by a culture that communicates with empathy, encouragement and compassion.


When I’m not consulting, designing, writing, presenting or motivationally speaking, I'm traveling across North America meeting, connecting, and empowering others through the researched-based power of storytelling...with my bicycle of course.

What's with the bicycle you ask?

The bicycle is a metaphoric and literal tool to empowerment.

Women have had very strong ties with the bicycle since its inception. For women in the 1880’s – 90’s the bicycle was a form of independence, which helped lead to the emancipation of women and the start of true female empowerment.

Imprisoned by their stiff corsets and heavy skirts, the bicycle not only changed women’s wardrobe, it was their vessel to freedom. This liberation came in many forms, the bicycle provided social coercion and cultivated independence.

My bike was …and still is a huge part of my journey, it has helped me through many struggles.

Riding a bicycle puts you in a childlike state of peace where everything feels right and connected, a state of ultimate consciousness.

With a bicycle you control your speed, YOU are the power to react, or not react to situations, a therapeutic ride that processes obstacles, bringing clarity and objectivity to your frustrations. 

Great reads on  Women's History of the Bicycle , Wheels of Change

"I think the bicycle has done more to emancipate women than any one thing in the world. I rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a bike. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammeled womanhood."

-American civil rights leader, Susan B Anthony, 1896
