Hi, I'm Cindy 

I am an author, soulful speaker, human-centric leader, creative consultant, podcast host and wellness advocate.

Most of my life’s work has been dedicated to teaching, mentoring, leadership and helping people thrive in higher education and the private sector. I have also empowered artists through creative project management and developing books that showcase their essence and voice. 


My life's purpose is to help leaders and organizations be more soulful and human-centric in their leadership in order to purposely create greater levels of personal and professional authentic impactful presence (PreZence) and empowerment. 

The Time is Now!

There is an urgency and a demand for more soul centered and human-centric programming and leadership in organizations.  The “Great Resignation” we witnessed at the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic is proof of that.  


That is why many people, over the last couple of years have personally felt:


  • A sense of  unfulfillment and disempowerment at the workplace or with their personal values system.

  •  That they lack purpose and are not growing in a direction that supports their potential. 

  • Are ready for change and to be empowered and a more authentic and impactful presence personally and professionally. 

To feel more personal empowerment and fulfillment we must, as William Shakespeare said, "to thine own self be true." It is time to get in touch with our own essence to create more empowerment, PreZence, clarity and purpose so that we can our transform personal and professional lives. 

I am here to help as a workshop facilitator, speaker, and consultant.
