I am a Quiet Leader, Lipstick Muse. Entrepreneur, Community Builder. Experience Curator. Idea Generator.
I create spaces for people to connect. Generally this begins in person and then is complemented with social media. Through my efforts and a team of amazing staff and volunteers, we are able to create places for people to meet face-to-face. This includes both small gatherings and conferences with hundreds of participants.
We all have a story to tell. As I go through this blessed life I have learned that every person has a back story – something that has propelled them to move forward, and often overcome challenges and believes. Follow along in my blog to read of the people I’ve connected with, perhaps they are meant to be part of your community too.
Sometimes we need a little help. As it says above, I am an idea generator, and while I dream of a magazine publication one day, this is where you’ll find ideas for building your own connections, along with how you can work with me and gain some insight and ideas on how to build and maintain your own community (or communities).
