"If you're looking to spur positive change, inspire hope, and motivate courage in people's lives then look no further."

Whether you want to address respectful boundary setting, promote clear communication, discuss physical safety, or all the above, I have a variety of PROGRAMS to help you create a safe, healthy and productive work environment. I can come to you or we can set up a virtual event!

Confidence & Boundaries

It’s important to feel confident establishing and maintaining our daily business and personal relationships.  How do you maintain your boundaries and communicate your needs in a realistic, empowering, and fluid way?  How do you ensure your team has the skills necessary to manage their safety and comfort in a variety of situations?


Professionals in industries that require being alone with strangers, taking meetings at any hour, or traveling regularly such as realtors, outside sales reps and consultants can feel at greater risk and more vulnerable while conducting business.  Everyone deserves to feel safe going about their lives and no one should have to limit themselves or their opportunities out of fear. Knowing you have options for self protection and that you can defend yourself physically if necessary is a skill that can lead to increased confidence across the board.

Let me help you empower your employees and team!

My interactive programs can be fully customized to fit your group’s needs. I can work with your HR or Legal team to ensure our program aligns with your messaging, goals, and existing company policy.

"Her adaptability in providing us with such an engaging and compelling virtual training was truly exceptional."
