As a social entrepreneur, I create initiatives and collaborations that provide positive social impact and inspiration. My career has been focused on building bridges in the public and private sector to advance female leadership, diversity, equity and inclusion, and opportunities for all.
Over the last three decades I’ve worked in healthcare, education and the business sector. I have had the privilege of working with over 20,000 women over the course of my career, helping them find their voice & visibility. From my early years as a social worker, to my most recent role as producer of the Voice + Visibility Women’s Summit, the stories of diverse women and their strength have inspired my dedication to elevating female leadership. I got my BA from Colgate University and my MSW from Smith College School for Social Work. I love living in sunny Sarasota, FL with my husband Neil, two teenage sons, and a growing family of pets.
