Bio

I believe in the power of knowledge and the importance of being able to have access to the right information, resources and connections to achieve your goals in life.

I help individuals do this in two ways:

I am the Founder and CEO of my professional development company, PurposefulConnections. I help you to obtain the right knowledge, information and resources as you move into and throughout your professional career to achieve your goals.

One of my particular areas of expertise in professional development is organizational and social network systems. I work with organizations and individuals. I provide tools, methodologies and resources for you to leverage your organizational, professional and personal networks in a meaningful way. I am the creator of a methodology called Maximizing Your Network! ™. My program is specifically geared to instructing you on how to achieve your goals through using your networks (the noun) in a meaningful way. I help you build and maintain your Purposeful Network™. I am also a strong advocate and supporter in the creation of purposeful communities and the development of strategic network connections for women and multicultural individuals.

I am also a business consultant for LogonTutor.com, an online and in-person membership based tutoring company. Having access to the right resources and knowledge starts early in life. LogonTutor.com helps you to obtain the right educational resources throughout one’s primary and secondary education.
