The Power of Pause

Career, Family, Health, Inspiration, Musings

The physical distancing in place to help slow the spread COVID-19 has forced so many of us to press the pause button. Much to my dismay, I cancelled two personal trips this month to see friends and family I love. My future speaking engagements (which rock my world to give) have been cancelled, and my upcoming … Read More

Personal and Professional Freedom


I first saw this quote on a stunning sculpture outside of Atlanta’s Center for Civil and Human Rights. I read Nelson Mandela’s powerful words as water flowed over them, tearing up as I read these words over and over: For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in … Read More

Remember What You Deserve

“Sometimes you have to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve.” -Unknown (click to tweet this) I am all about expressing gratitude and feeling thankful for what I have. I do it every day.

Shout Out to the Reliables

Career, Musings

Last week, my plate felt full to the point of spilling over. Without going into details, I felt like I was drowning in work, family, parenting, volunteer work and more. I dealt by having a lovely mini meltdown – after a day of service to my clients, daughter, friends and community, I had a few … Read More

The Power of Service


I earned a spot working one of the most coveted parent volunteer roles at my daughter’s school – serving at the Valentine’s tea.

I cannot endorse unplugging to recharge enough! It is wonderful to be home, but wow, is it great (personally and professionally) to get away! My vocation … Read More

Don’t Make Your Issue an Issue

Career, Motherhood, Musings

I had a total “working mom on the verge” moment yesterday. I was plowing through work before I unplugged for a live meeting (meaning I had to be showered and dressed professionally, no hiding behind the laptop!) when the babysitter messaged me saying she had a family emergency and couldn’t come. Working mom guilt kicked in… The little … Read More

Creating Time for Creativity

Career, Inspiration, Musings

I had coffee today with a friend. As I walked into the front door and took my first whiff of the baked goods and caffeinated happiness I was about to put in my hungry face, I was finishing an internal conversation that sounded something like this: “I don’t have time for this” “I should be using this time … Read More
