Speaker | Coach | Consultant | Chocoholic

The official line: I empower companies and individuals to refuel their joy, revive their lives and realize their dreams. Through decades of training and studying such topics as positive psychology, leadership, company cultures, emotional intelligence and employee engagement, I have learned the mindsets and emotional aspects that allow individuals and organizations to THRIVE. This is why, as the Joy Refueler, I equip people to create joy-driven lives, businesses and teams that allow individuals to FLOURISH. I’m the author of the book “Joy Notes: 90 Days of Delight.” I have a Masters of Education and I am a certified HR Professional both with the PHR and SHRM-CP designations and a member of the National Speaking Association.

The bottom line: I believe that the only thing keeping us from creating whatever we want in our lives and businesses is our limiting beliefs. I believe that joy abounds if you take steps to look for it and make it a powerful force in your life and business. I believe that when you put joy first you unleash the everlasting joy you were created for.  And, I absolutely believe that chocolate is a joy elixir.
