I believe a person's example is far more influential than their education, experience, opinions and words. I also believe, whether you are 8 or 78, you have the power to influence behavior in the people around you. With every interaction, you choose to be a positive influence or a negative one. You either build community culture (or family culture, or team culture or school culture), or you tear it down.
I'm an avid advocate of the power of education and youth sports to grow young leaders, and I'm a relentless mission to inspire all ages to lead with strength, discipline, courage, respect...and most of all, kindness.
I've been married to my best friend for over 20 years, I'm a mom to two teenage boys, a consulting project manager by profession, and volunteer throughout my community. I'm also a co-founder of 2BeKind, LLC and a kindness ambassador for the #BeKind initiative.
