After exiting my software company and retiring before the age of 35, I decided to focus on what I love and my lifelong passion of helping others succeed! I co-founded BGBO Co, a business consulting company that helps business owners achieve their biggest goal and overcome their biggest challenges. There were so many times in business where I said, “If only I had somebody I could ask with experience in this…”. I want to help businesses that are running into those obstacles and get them to their goal(s) faster.
Along with BGBO Co., I am the CEO & Founder of HeartMindSoul+Me, a company that brings together products that inspire people to feel and do good. Some of my best and worst times in life, came from running a business and felt the benefit of having positive and inspirational items around me. I have created a way to share those products that have inspired me over the years.
As a part of my personal mission to give back to my community and to help others succeed, I give back to many local non-profits. In 2018, I was asked to be the Director of 100 Girls of Code, a non-profit which empowers girls to go into STEM, and something I am very passionate about. When I was in my engineering classes, I was often the only female in the class and I want to help close the gender gap in STEM.
As a speaker, I captivate my audiences with a straightforward and no-nonsense approach to success, while of course wearing my stiletto heels. My topics include: Speaking on Media Innovation, Sales and Entrepreneurship. I have a bachelor degree from Louisiana Tech University in both Construction Engineering Technology and Business Management & Entrepreneurship. I also obtained a Masters Degree in Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education from the University of San Diego.
I am not only a speaker; I am a wife and a mother. I love to share my passion for traveling, cooking, and exploring new things with my family by my side. Traveling with an infant/toddler and a hungry husband has allowed me to learn a lot about life while working. With my personal experiences, I want to share my tips and tricks on traveling, cooking, and exploring from my family to yours.
