1. Where were you born and raised; current city; family; hobbies; past business highlights...
I was born in Chicago, IL and raised in Boston, MA. I attended college in Orlando, FL, receiving a Bachelor of Science as a recording engineer (with a minor in electrical coding) from Full Sail University. As a former vocal recording artist, I decided I needed a more steady income for my daughter. Therefore, I pursued a career as a technician working in construction infrastructure of new buildings in Massachusetts, becoming the first woman field tech in that office in the previous 20 years. I knew I was built for so much more, but what was it? It’s not easy to focus on anything else but a good paying job when you are a single mother of a genius daughter, but I knew we deserved so much more than me climbing utility poles and receiving four percent raises at the end of each year, just keeping us in survival mode. Even on the job I would strap myself in for safety on those utility poles and look up at the sky and say aloud, ‘there has got to be a better way.’ I was assisting with building every line entering and coming out of a newly constructed building and I couldn’t afford to build myself a home. That always irked me to the core. Three years into that position as a rising star, during a blizzard we were out repairing lines as essential employees. As a result, an unfortunate severe on-location injury retired me, so I then started research on how I could work from home…working in sterling silver sales, healthy coffee sales, and then thankfully a perfect stranger introduced me to the lucrative secret society of the travel industry and I’ve not yet looked back. I have reached the position of One-Star Director and now understand this compressed matrix wealth system was created with integrity and truly has no glass ceiling.

2. How have you grown or personally developed since joining PlanNet?
Growth is a daily occurrence for me. My public speaking fear developed into physical meltdown panic attacks. But what I understood about building wealth through leveraging was so important I pushed through the pain and on the other side I found a much bolder me. It took a lot of self-development, and to this day I’m still embarking on this journey of finding my voice to develop into a top global leader inside of PlanNet Marketing. It is perfect, consistent practice that produces perfection and the leadership we have to follow is continuously sharpening anyone who wants to develop from the whole person concept. The PlanNet culture is equivalent to iron sharpening iron.

3. What drives you; what motivates you?
All the great leaders that have done it right, before me. Reading and researching network marketing and actually finding out something almost every day that I didn’t know before.

4. Who would you consider a role model and why?
Thankfully I have been impacted, mentored, and coached by so many amazing people in my lifetime. But I am old enough to realize you only get to see certain parts of people at certain seasons in their lives. Therefore, my role models are a multitude. I’ve been able to strategically appreciate different attributes of many leaders, to replicate and stretch myself to reach the hard goals. Yes, I agree no one is ever going to be perfect, but a wise person knows they always have more to learn and wisdom is unfortunately fleeting.

5. The three words that describe you best are:
Hope Agent, Reiki Master, Utilizing Many Talents.

6. If you had some sound advice to give to anyone what would it be?
Close your eyes and create the highest, most grandiose vision for your life, then seriously decide you are going to pursue your own adventurous journey with congruence, in spite of how it makes you feel. Feel the fear and do it now, even while you’re shaking and stuttering, because you will never say the wrong thing to the right person.

7. What does your life look like five years from now?
In the next five years, my team and I will have had ample opportunity to share the vision effectively. Therefore, together we will assist hundreds of thousands of people around the world financially. WE ARE GLOBAL!
