About Me

I began my speaking career as a volunteer in our church and the schools our four children attended. After receiving an overwhelmingly positive response to a Peace Talk I delivered during a Residents Encounter Christ weekend (a program for incarcerated men), I was approached by a friend to become a training consultant for a nationwide provider of corporate trainings. I spent the next 8 years joyfully providing motivation and inspiration to thousands of people for hundreds of corporate clients and government agencies. During those years, I was also continuing my volunteer work with our church, teaching various levels of religious education and leading and participating in several ministries. I served on the board of directors for two charities, including Friends of Musoma. This hand to hand charity works to improve the lives of people living in Musoma, Tanzania. You can read about our family’s trip to Tanzania in The Evangelist.

After working in the corporate world for 8 years, I began to feel the pull of the Holy Spirit calling me back to full-time work for Him. I forged a relationship with The City Mission of Schenectady and am offering several trainings to their clients on a regular basis. I am a certified Bridges Out of Poverty trainer and a recognized speaker for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany. I am often asked to speak at spiritual conferences, events, and faith-based organizations. I feel as though my speaking career has come full circle and I am back to the beginning, exactly where I have been led.
