My Story

As the daughter of a coal miner, a West Virginia native and the first in my family to graduate from college, I grew up, unbeknownst to me, with the inherent belief that certain things were not available to me. When I entered the workforce, I was not fully aware of the ways in which my working class upbringing  was impacting how I related to myself, how I related to my co-workers, and what I thought was possible for me.

 

As I advanced in my career, I experienced a tremendous amount of stress, self-doubt, and anxiety, and was unaware of the source for a long time. Instead of fleeing these situations, however, I chose to embrace feeling uncomfortable to explore and examine myself with the hope of gaining insight and discovering the root cause.

 

Eventually, I realized that I had deep internal limiting beliefs that were the result of internalized messages related to my class and gender. I began developing a series of strategies and tools that not only helped me to change habits, but also my mindset. I continued refining my process over the next decade into a set of strategies that opened up a positive pathway to becoming the confident, healthy leader that I am today. 

 

Through my public speaking, writing, and online courses, I am dedicated to sharing these strategies with women all over the world with the hope that I can create a more positive and equitable workplace, where leadership by women is the norm and not the exception.
