A little about me

For as long as I can remember I’ve been a keen observer of what works and what doesn’t when it comes to having meaningful conversations and building valuable connections. Some call this networking. But it’s more than that.

For context, I grew up in an entrepreneurial family that placed a high value on relationships and reputation. I watched my grandfather and dad build the family business, one conversation at a time.  This impacted me significantly.  

After earning my college degree, I worked in the corporate and agency worlds, then launched my own communications practice. Over the years, I’ve helped hundreds of clients craft and share their messages and stories; launch and promote their products and services; and build their networks, businesses, and reputations. I’ve also done a lot of mentoring. And I’ve attended a ton of conferences and events, always observing what works and what doesn’t.

In 2011 my first book, The Intentional Networker: Attracting Powerful Relationships, Referrals & Results in Business, was released. To my delight, it was dubbed a “success guide.” It earned excellent reviews, two prestigious book awards, and a community of enthusiastic readers. Many report the book changed their lives. 

Since then, I’ve been invited to present and share my expertise with organizations such as: Microsoft, Dell, Rodan + Fields, HEB, the Texas Society for Association Executives, Concordia University, MGM Resorts Foundation, the Texas Conference for Women, the Texas Association of Counties, and many others.

I’ve also been recruited to serve in leadership roles with the National Speakers Association as well as other professional organizations.  And I’ve been blessed with a few nice awards.  Most importantly, I’ve met a lot of fascinating people.

What about you?
