How It Started!

The first time I remember not feeling good enough was when I was 7.  I remember thinking that I didn’t quite fit. 

Fast forward a couple of decades and those thoughts still occupied so much space in my mind making it difficult for me to move forward in my career and personal life.  I longed for more but didn’t believe I deserved it.

Then one day I attended a staff meeting and there was a guest speaker.  He told stories about his family and the lessons he learned growing up.  He spoke in a way that drew me in, made me love him, and made me feel seen and I wept. Like, sobbing embarrassingly!  But, that was the moment. That was when I knew I wanted to make people feel the way I felt, right then.  I wanted to make others feel seen.

Fast forward a decade later and I had done nothing to pursue this dream because truthfully deep down inside I didn’t’ believe that I could actually do it!  Who was I to think that I could inspire others?  Who was I to expect more?  Everyday that went by, I did nothing to pursue my dreams, but after a long time of self-reflection and hard work, I was finally able to give my feelings of inadequacy a name…Imposter Syndrome.

She is an inspiration, kind soul, real and just cool to be around. If you get the opportunity to meet her, connect with her, partner with her or schedule her for your next event... you will NOT be disappointed.

Keynote # 1

Stop Doing So Much

It’s time to understand your relationship with this action of “doing so much”. It’s time to understand why. At some point, we all experience burnout, frustrations, resentment, and just general feelings of overwhelm and it’s normally a result of doing too much!

Make the font bigger and maybe add an extender button so only the first half is visible, and the second half can be read if the person clicks “read more”?

The keynote will be focused on providing the audience with practical steps to decrease burnout as they grow in their careers, it will encourage group participation as we dig into “how we got here”, and lessons we can learn and teach others.

Summary
Audience Takeaways

The reasons why we get caught in the cycle of “doing the most.”

Little steps we can take to regain control and our sanity!

How to help others avoid the trap!

How I Turned My Hot Mess to Success

Keynote # 2

After several years of work experience, degrees, and accolades, I still struggled to believe I belonged. Viewing every opportunity I received as someone “taking a chance on me.” Every day was a challenge because I lacked the self-confidence to speak up when it mattered and to trust myself with big decisions.

In short, my Imposter Syndrome impacted my overall effectiveness as a leader. Join me as I share my personal journey with imposter syndrome, the lessons I learned, the battles I am still fighting, and just a few of the many awkward moments in between.

Summary
Audience Takeaways

This is not just a "how to" speech. This is not a speech with "big promises". This is a raw, painful, powerful story of the battles I actively fight daily as I try to put one foot in front of the other.

The audience will feel seen.

They will know they are not alone.

They will walk aways with a list of tangible “baby” steps they can take RIGHT NOW to quiet or at least lower the mean voices in their heads as they work toward fulfilling their dreams!
