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, organizational leadership and helping people thrive in higher education. I have also empowered artists through creative project management and developing books that showcase their essence and voice. 


My latest venture, PreZence podcast is the culmination of the above and focuses on creating a more impactful presence in our professional and personal life. It’s time to bring more PreZence to how we show up in life and express who we are, in and out of the workplace. 

The Time is Now!

There is an urgency and a demand for more soul centered and human-centric programming and leadership in organizations. There is also a need for greater levels of personal and professional fulfillment and meaning, and an impactful presence (PreZence).  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  unfulfilment with the workplace or personal values system, and are ready to create change.

  • Are growth minded and ready to be a more authentic and impactful presence personally and professionally.

  • Interested in consciousness, leadership and spirit (what I call the voice within) as guideposts for personal and professional growth, helping others and creating a better world.

  • Or, have a creative project that you are passionate about and realize that putting it off is no longer an option. 


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

"Unlock Your Boundless Potential: Experience the Tedx Event - Embrace the Power of Determination and Learn Life-Changing Strategies for Success"

Determination means never giving up and always trying your best no matter how hard something is. It's like when you really want to ride a bike, but it's really difficult at first and you fall down a lot. But instead of giving up, you keep trying and practicing until you can ride the bike all by yourself. Determination helps us to achieve our goals even when things are tough.
