I am often “one of a few” or the “only” woman in a room or a meeting because I work in the world of high school athletics.

I have experienced my fair share of discrimination, but with time, the more I saw it coming, the better prepared I was to:
I became aware that I needed to use my position as “the only” to benefit other women - those who couldn’t be in the room or at the table
I can provide various services to you, your team, your organization that will create a heightened level of awareness as well as action items to implement to create more space at your table.
