People who know me know that I work hard to create a career that enables my life. But I was not always that way. In this TEDxHarrisburg Talk, I shared my journey – one that’s constantly evolving, as I look for inspiration on a daily basis.I have since devoted my life to creating a journey of personalized growth, which promotes a simple philosophy that, at its core, is the integration of life and work.

I’m proud of my path, inspired by key influencers in my life.

Inspiration, like work, changes

Inspiration is a funny thing – it can be all around you, even when you aren’t aware of it. In the days since my TEDx Talk, I have been genuinely humbled and touched by the number of people who told me I inspired them by sharing my story. I can honestly say, if I have played even a small part in their journeys, I am extremely honored. So many of you continue to inspire me each day.
