It All Began With a Bit of Magic
"To illuminate the end of a wand, the caster must call out the incantation "Lumos." If correctly incanted, the end of the wand will then illuminate and cast light in the immediate vicinity of the caster. It can also be used to illuminate unseen entrances."
My superpower is lighting up the voices of women and leaders of color, opening the doorways of opportunity and influence.
Like you, I fell in love with the roller coaster of making shift happen. Creating change in communities and fighting for social justice. Chipping away at the world’s most pressing problems by dreaming up visionary solutions. Not considering this “work” but rather, a deeper personal calling.
I also understand feeling stuck. The frustration of not knowing where to even begin. And buried even deeper, a piercing fear that you are “not enough” to make your big vision a reality.
For twelve years, I served as the primary rainmaker at a nonprofit in Orange County, California. I realized “competition” is a myth. Our universe is abundant with donors, clients, ambassadors, and any type of audience you want to grow.
The real competitor is Noise. Distraction. A Chaotic World. The real challenge is obscurity and figuring out how to transform from a best kept secret to a household name.
The solution is thought leadership branding. Abundantly sharing your lived experience, passion, and expertise to build trust with the right audience on the right topic. Becoming crystal clear on your niche to provide value and solutions with radical empathy. Strategically growing your community and attracting the needed resources to turn your cause into a movement.
Those working closest to our world’s most pressing problems have the solutions; they're just not always at “the table”. Yet, those at the table still give permission for others to join.
Let’s dismantle the boardroom table and reimagine the ultimate space of leadership as a campfire circle. A place to gather in growing community. To share stories and spark new ideas. To huddle for warmth. To be lit up. Where there is always room.
The power of intuition, strong women, short emails, long hugs, decolonizing our minds and bodies, and cutting out the 'meh' to make room for the very best.

Morning affirmations and mirror work, listening to my dog’s heartbeat as a form of meditation, an apple a day, HIIT classes, and 8+ hours of sleep (unless I fall asleep watching Attack on Titan).
