It was because she wasn’t paying attention that one day, when asked to be a partner in a Professional Services firm, she became a business owner. Completely willing to do the work, but not really understanding what the whole “owning a business”-thing was “really about”, she put her nose to the grindstone and they were quickly a six figure firm! It was due to government funding issues that quick thinking had to be employed to keep her new dream of staying a partner alive. Through her solid business relationships turned her first firm into her second. Two and a half years, and running a $6M firm later, she found herself free to preach about Sales and Freedom all over the country, and that is when Sales UpRising was born! As the founder, she created a business where she is free to work with her clients through the trials and tribulations of business ownership. Showing them a clear path to success through selling their expertise and passions. Through her live Mastermind, speaking events, and workshops she walks her clients down the gilded path to profitability and empower them to be the #1 Salesperson for their dreams!

She has been on the Board of Advisors for Women on Course, is on the Executive Leadership Committee for the NoVA Chapter of eWomenNetwork, a member of her local NAWBO chapter and is a sponsor for 1 Million Cups! In addition to actively supporting small business success, she is happy to spend her time in nature.
