A bit about me…
I’m a bit of a unicorn.
(No, wait. I’m real. I guess that makes me more of a narwhale.)
I have a very unique set of skills and a personality profile shared by a whopping 2% of the population.
I’m a highly empathic person who can analyze systems, processes and teams to identify what’s not working AND also dream up and map out complex, strategic solutions to solve those problems.
In other words. I was actually born to be a consultant.
I also love public speaking. (Adding that to the skills above is such a rare combination there are no statistics measuring it.)
Oh man. Maybe I AM a unicorn.
But enough about what makes me tick. You want to hear about the boring stuff, right? (Isn’t that what bios are for? People talking in third person about boring stuff so they don’t sound not so unicorny?)
The boring stuff…
I have more than two decades of experience working in marketing and communications for B2B and B2C companies. I’ve won some awards for my work. I am also author of the book, Social Media Etiquette: 100 Ways to Communicate With Grace and Class.
In addition to consulting and coaching companies, I speak, teach and conduct training nationally on topics related to social media, content marketing, storytelling, change management and digital communications.
My expertise on stuff, (mainly social media) has been featured in Minnesota Business, Twin Cities Business, WCCO TV, KSTP TV, Metro Magazine, The Line, Finance and Commerce and Minnesota Meetings and Events.
Do you want to hear about personal stuff? (Some people really dig that sort of thing.)
The personal stuff…
I’m a mom, wife, Basset Hound owner, cyborg and second degree black belt. I think a lot about the zombie apocalypse and have been told I have a big fan base among Japanese Santa Clauses, (long story.)
I have jumped out of an air plane, been pulled up on stage in the West End of London, become a certified fork-truck operator, been a hair model, swam with sting rays, performed in a stadium in front of 30,000 people (With a group. I’m not Beyonce or anything.), been on TV, choreographed a dance for 100 people and produced a conference for 1,000.
In 2014, I published an erotica book, mostly because I thought Fifty Shades of Grey was poorly written and I could write something better, (and found a publisher who agreed with me). No, I’m not going to tell you my pen name.
I’m not a fan of lying, so if you read any of the things above and wondered, “Really?” The answer is, “Yes, really.”
