The Real Wealth Real Health podcast is now live! Episodes will be published 2-3 times per month and will feature interviews with people who have discovered their path, purpose and who live from a place of deep inner meaning. People for whom wealth, health, happiness and success are terms undefined by conventional thinking or historical paradigms. People who inspire me and others to live from a different perspective, driven by a need for more - not externally, not for validation by others, but from a place of soulful understanding of what holds real meaning in life. The podcast is available on iTunes
The Truth Telling for Truth Seekers event was part motivational event, part TED Talk and part open mic night. This all-day event mixed speaking, music, spoken word and restorative practices like a soundbath and meditation to create a unique, playful yet deep mix of emotions and personal connections. I was one of the featured 'truthtellers' and gave a 20 minute TED style presentation on a personal truth and the lessons that I've learned from living courageously, overcoming personal challenges and honoring myself.

I'm very excited to announce my first public keynote! On April 22nd, 2018 at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, I'll be one of three keynote speakers alongside entertainers, musicians, and sound bath healers bringing a day of magic, motivation and transformational fun to the stage.
The theme of the day is truth telling, and I'll be sharing a personal story and insights from my life and lessons learned about speaking our truth, even when we think we can't, or we carry shame or we simply don't believe that telling the truth will be ok.
The truth is - speaking up, opening up, sharing and telling the truth is the most healing, rewarding and transformational act you can do. It's how we heal. It's how we move on. It's how we discover just how much support and love is in our lives.

Lendit Fintech has been the premiere and leading fintech conference since Peter Renton and Jason Jones put on their first event in 2012. They have continued to lead the way in programming, topics, and industry influence.
The scope of the conference has evolved beyond lending and into financial technology broadly, including a blockchain track this year, which comes as no surprise.
Beyond trends, Lendit Fintech is also leading in its programming around leadership and global issues like gender inequality. This year, I am proud to be part of the Lendit Fintech program as a speaker in the Women in Fintech track.
On Wednesday, April 11th I'll be leading a 70-minute workshop as part of a 4-hour program focusing on women in fintech - and beyond.
Workshop: Empowering Female Leadership In Your Organization
In this interactive workshop session, you’ll learn practical, actionable tools and strategies to make an immediate impact towards advancing women’s leadership. Gain an understanding of which biases are holding companies back from truly acknowledging and integrating women at work, and learn how you can proactively role model the change required to empower female leadership in your own company.
There’s truly no conference quite like LendIt USA. This year’s conference and agenda is expanding with the industry to cover the hottest topics in lending and fintech including insurtech, blockchain, bank partnerships, financial inclusion, wealth management and much more.
Looking forward to seeing you in San Francisco for the conference!
I was recently interviewed by Dr. Adam Gower for his NREF - National Real Estate Forum podcast. We talked about reinventing careers, and pursuing our passions as they relate to being of service to others through education and mentorship.
A lot happened in 2017 and I've decided to use my experience and knowledge to help entrepreneurs build purpose-driven brands and to work with women on building their leadership traits so that they can make a bigger impact in the organizations they work for, the businesses they run, and on the people around them.Read More
