I love travel and people. Exploring this beautiful planet will never get old.
Runner, Inflexible yogi, reader
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.
Today, I live in Portugal with my stay-at-home-dad husband and two kids. We do life our way, and we’re loving every minute of it.
I’ve written more than a dozen books and impacted thousands of people through speaking, training, coaching, and writing.
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 thirteen 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. I now live my dream every single day. And let me tell you, it's better than I imagined.

Experiences like hiking Ta Kou Mountain to see the reclining Buddha in Mui Ne, Vietnam; being robbed at gunpoint in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; tobogganing down the Great Wall of China; and most recently, taking in the charm of Portugal with its cliffs and beaches and cobblestone roads, all shape who I am and how I work. Spending time in different cultures has helped me develop an openness and desire to understand varied viewpoints, allowing me to connect authentically with people across the globe.
Outside of doing meaningful work I love, I’m a lifelong runner, aspiring cyclist, inflexible yogi, and adventure-seeker. Most importantly, though, I’m a mama to two awesome kids and a wife to a supportive cyclist husband who cooks, cares for the kids, and cleans (sort of). We’ve flip-flopped typical American life on its head, and we like it that way.
Originally from Idaho, I’ve spent much of my adult life exploring the world, including living in the Dominican Republic, Vietnam, Thailand, and my current home of Portugal.
