2018 was a year of establishing boundaries, creating goals and having visions come alive.

When I started my speaking journey in April 2016, my goal was to start presenting at conferences, participating in webinars, and creating podcasts. I have yet to create the podcast piece, but that will happen one day.

I had the opportunity to participate in a webinar about Officer Involved Domestic Violence with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and other expert panelists in December 2018. I met with legislators and candidates in Colorado. I have attended numerous networking events, conferences, symposiums, and workshops. Some of the sessions involved domestic violence, many did not. I attended events about racism, human trafficking, homelessness, women’s empowerment and goal setting.

I worked with a web designer to create my very first website! I worked with a professional photographer and make-up artist to complete the look of the site and my brand. I started working with a business coach and a professional speaking coach.

I am focusing on public speaking and this business and have advised several of the organizations I volunteer with that I am doing so. They have been very understanding.

I have many goals for 2019; my growth continues on many levels, so stay tuned!

I thank all of you for your support this year and continuing into 2019.
