I’ve been obsessed with writing and books since second grade. As a child, I learned the power of writing and reading as a tool of influence, and knew my life path would somehow converge with the written word. Today, I’ve been in business for twelve years, during which I lived on four continents, worked with hundreds of impact-makers, and had two incredible kids. In all that time, my vision never faltered: I knew I was meant to help people share their ideas through writing. Today, I live my dream every single day. And let me tell you, it's better than I imagined.
I’ve written more than a dozen books and impacted thousands of people through speaking, training, coaching, and writing. My background includes ghostwriting for a Nobel Prize winner in medicine and leading as executive editor of Sam’s Club’s Healthy Living Made Simple, a publication that reaches around 11 million readers. I’ve trained leaders from Starbucks, The Boeing Company, Intuit, and more. My best-selling book, cowritten with Ron Price, is Growing Influence: A Story of How to Lead with Character, Expertise, and Impact. I have a master’s in writing and editing and a bachelor’s in writing.
I successfully managed the editorial staff; ensured quality control of the publication; and wrote over 50 percent of magazine content, including a cover feature on Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra. Healthy Living Made Simple is a bimonthly magazine distributed to 8 million households and reaches 3 million readers online and in Sam’s Club locations across the U.S.

I was involved in envisioning, planning, and launching a first-ever publication of its kind in the Treasure Valley of Boise, Idaho. As managing editor, I successfully hired and managed more than 30 writers, photographers, designers, editors, and support staff; completed final review of all articles, design, and photographs; and wrote a “Letter from the Editor” and various articles in the magazine. Fusion Magazine was a Boise city lifestyle magazine with a distribution of 20,000.
