I have over 30 years of experience in top leadership and executive positions. I have a proven track record of accomplishments in leadership development and community solutions. I have academic credentials way beyond a Master Degree. Yet, my most impressive credential is being Margie’s Daughter. She gave me a clear advantage. She placed me in the driver’s seat of my life. She surrounded me with a safety net. That empowered me to explore, build self confidence, make mistakes and face life’s challenges. She provided me with the space to hear and cultivate my own voice.  My Mother taught me how to stand and think on my feet. Make sound decisions and accept the consequences of my actions good and bad. I was never told to be more or asked to be less. I was taught how to think. I am Margie’s Daughter. It is just that simple.
