I'm the woman who...


… cries at commercials and really good movie endings (or really bad ones).

… loves the underdog, the slow runner, the impossible dream.

… loves musicals and believes the world’s problems would be far less contentious if we had to argue and disagree in song. I’ve been known to spontaneously break into song (don’t worry, I’m normally alone).

… believes in justice understanding that justice is not necessarily the outcome but the process.

… believes in the lyrics and sweeping notions of We Are the World and Man in the Mirror (Though I have to admit, I’m not sure if that’s because Michael Jackson was involved. I’ve won two Halloween contests dressed as the King of Pop. #justsayin).

… like to boldly color outside the lines until my OCD kicks in. #erase

… loves all things Wonder Woman. I could open a museum. I’m not saying I’m Wonder Woman. I’m just saying no one has ever seen me and Wonder Woman in the same room. (You do the math).

… knows that emotion sells and I use it handily.

… believes when no one else does.

Our team


Witness My Life works with women leaders around the world. We partner with business owners who have made a name for themselves in their own right. We believe in building bridges to better and greater things collectively as individuals and as team members. In other words, our team members have their own companies -- and we wouldn't have it any other way. 
We work as a unit to spread out and reach more.
