From Louisiana, to IBM Global VP

After 30 years of consulting with the C-suite, she creates dynamic outcomes and profitable growth–but it started with her Grandmother…

In Shreveport, Louisiana, her grandmother taught her the value of hard work and the importance of building, nurturing, and sustaining relationships. She also instilled in her that she can do ANYTHING.

As a proven COO and serial innovator, she is known for driving global businesses and strategic growth initiatives in a profitable and scalable way, inspiring change, and delivering brand breakthroughs for clients.

An exciting motivational speaker, she speaks to entrepreneurs, children, and organizations, and teaches, using a unique blend of mindfulness, inspiration, and strategy. Her goal is to offer aspiring and experienced people with greater perspective, and competitive tools.

She also improves morale throughout the organizations that she touches.

Mentor, Leader, Coach

She is extremely passionate about helping others; therefore, she spends a lot of time mentoring and coaching. She also do a lot of community service and participate in various nonprofit organizations.

She brings her authentic self to work every day:

“We each must strive to be our best version of ourselves,” she says. “We should all come to work as an original. Be ourselves because everyone else is taken anyway. If we all do this, we help build the culture. We help build a diverse and inclusive environment. We help to be the catalyst for the change.”

Advice for Life

She says it’s important to Know Yourself, Be Your Self, and Surround Yourself.

☞ Know yourself is where you align to your values.

☞ Be Yourself is being authentic.

☞ Surround Yourself is to remember that no one gets there alone, so build your network of mentors and sponsors and ask for help.

Her Favorite Quote
