I am on a mission to create a sisterhood of womxn who collaborate, lift one another up, and allow one another to shine. Community over competition, all day every day, because when one womxn shines, we all do… and because none of us will shine until we all do. I am passionate about racial and gender equity, and writing for coaches who share those values and understand their connection in advancing social justice.
I envision an impactful and inclusive circle where I shine doing what I love (writing), you shine doing what you love (coaching), and your people shine doing what they love. As we collectively align our power and our genius, we will create a massive social impact in the world.
Family; Liberation; Equity; Antiracism; Antisexism; Inclusion; Diversity; Social Justice; Accountability; Time (as in I’ll never waste yours); Courage; Vulnerability; Empathy; Growth; Purpose; Impact; Integrity; Collaboration.
Now if that doesn’t have you salsa dancing…
It’s ok. We dance mostly bachata in this house anyway. But seriously… you should know that I lead with heart and have a whole lot of passion for what I do; kind of like you.
You know that womxn working together are a force to be reckoned with. It’s your mission to disrupt the patriarchy and be a force for racial and gender equity as you help the womxn you serve make more money, launch a dream business, demand their seat at the table, reclaim their health, or live an authentic and joyful life.
You know that you can’t achieve this important mission and you don’t win creativity points if you can’t sell your message… which might be what brought you here today.
And you understand that you probably won’t hit your income and social impact goals if you keep doing allll the things (ahem, writing) that you can and probably should outsource to an expert.
Right now, you’re leaving money and impact on the table.
So let’s fix that. Let’s figure out how to align YOUR brand and YOUR voice with YOUR values to create a unique selling proposition that only YOU bring to the table.
Let’s capture and elevate the essence of YOUR greatness in an inclusive and impactful message that resonates with your people and makes them realize they can’t live without you.
Unlike some freelance writers who only care about putting words on a page, I care about getting you results. The more successful you are, the more successful all womxn are.
Why Social Impact?
A #metoo situation started a 10+ year career in HR consulting, after I became convinced I would stop all that nonsense once “on the inside.” But the fact is… a lot of companies out there exploit and discriminate… (yes, even the ones that say they promote diversity and inclusion)… with well-intentioned HR professionals screaming powerlessly from the sidelines.
My family and my marriage are my inspiration... and also a daily reminder of my white privilege.
I cannot claim to be a business that stands for empowering womxn if I don’t actively and vocally do what I can to address the needs of ALL womxn… especially Black womxn, other womxn of color, womxn who are LGBTQ+, and all who are vulnerable.
When one womxn shines, we all do. None of us shine until we all do.
With my platform and privilege, I promise to:
Openly and continuously name oppression and white supremacy, and imperfectly use my business as a vehicle for inclusion, equity, antiracism, and antisexism work.
Do everything I can to create and hold a safe space for Black womxn, Indigenous and Non-Black womxn of color, LGBTQ+ womxn, or womxn who identify with any marginalized social identity.
Proactively unlearn, relearn, and do the work. Allow for open conflict and dialogue, sit with discomfort, regularly check my privileges and hidden biases, and work with partners and clients who share antiracist and antisexist values.
Seek out opportunities to invest in partners, providers, coaches, or courses created by womxn, especially Black womxn, Indigenous or Non-Black womxn of color, and LGBTQ+ womxn.
Review event leadership and panel members prior to agreeing to any speaking engagement.
Donate 5% of profits to Girls Write Now, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) organization that mentors underserved young womxn and gender non-conforming youth to find their voices through the power of writing and community.
