I began delivering workshops and trainings when working with Employee Assistance Programs in 2001, and have delivered hundreds of trainings over that time frame.  My offerings are wide-ranging, from one-hour lunch and learn trainings, to full day sessions, and include well over 40 topics, from stress management to change to presentation skills to leadership development and beyond. My biggest gift as a trainer, I feel, is a connected interaction with every single audience and a gift for leaving every group, regardless of size or topic, powerfully inspired. My goal is to make every training educational, engaging, funny, inspirational and powerful.

Some of the many companies I have provided webinars or in-person trainings for:

Coors, Boulder Community Hospital, City of Englewood, Arapahoe Library District, Agilent Technologies, RTD, Time Warner Cable, Aetna, BCBS, Magellan, Good Samaritan Hospital, Children’s Hospital, City of Seattle, Keypoint Government Solutions, Lincoln Financial Group, Nevada Pool Pact, Federal Aviation Administration, King County Library, City of Westminster.

My unique and interactive methods will deliver results that your group will be talking about (and utilizing) for months.

I can also customize my training programs to meet your specific needs today.
