My career has taken me from the corridors of Capitol Hill to an Alabama maximum security prison to the wilderness of a Utah survival school. I’ve worn hidden cameras, chased tornadoes and jumped out of airplanes. I’ve represented politicians and media executives and even briefly, Barney the purple dinosaur.
I've interviewed some of the smartest and most awesome women in our country, then had two children who inspired my first book, "How She Really Does It: Secrets of Successful Stay-at-Work Moms."
Through it all I’ve pivoted more times in my career than most, working at start-ups, Fortune 500 companies and hustling for gigs on my own, all of which led to my second book, "Fearless and Free: How Smart Women Pivot and Relaunch their Careers."
My life's work brings me to where I am today - storyteller, media strategist and expert hustler. Throw in work/life expert and career pivoter. Does it all fit together? I think so.
