The second half of my life has opened a door of freedom, greater possibilities, and boldness. As I look back and see forward, I realize a well-lived life and have a renewed enthusiasm to create another new, exciting, and different version of myself.
As a woman over 50, I have a dynamic reawakening and the confidence of someone who does not have to prove her worth. I move forward and live on my terms and intensely desire to live and experience life to the fullest.
After a successful corporate career and raising a son serving our country as a sailor in the US Navy, I am focused on a long-ago dream of living in Paris, France. I have traveled there every year since 2014, built a network of friends, and taught in a fashion business school.
I have also leveraged my professional experience to become an entrepreneur. At my firm, Smashing Daily, an image management and personal branding practice, I coach rising and established female leaders to amplify their impact and influence for business success. I feel a strong pull toward mentorship to confidently groom the next generation to build their seat at the table.
