I believe this to be true: you and I are leaders and we have the ability to positively impact our lives and those around us. My motto is that I'm here to do awesome things. If I want to see the world improve, then change starts with me and my actions, no matter how big or small. So who am I? I’m a fit nerd who wants to make a difference. As a mom to two awesome kids, I founded a women’s empowerment initiative tailored to school-aged children called Pretty Strong Smart. I co-host a data visualization podcast, co-organize a data+women meet-up, and co-facilitate workshops for kids and teens on data visualization. I’m a trained life coach, wellness coach, habits coach, and trained leadership facilitator. I believe in living fully engaged and taking action; we have a responsibility to ourselves and those around us to make a difference in our communities, whether that’s at work, home, local, or globally.
