Being an activist can start with the choices we make day to day. It’s been over 11 years as a gender-based violence activist and my adventures and the state of our planet have made me an environmental activist. Yet really, we should all be activists helping heal and protect people and planet. We are not individuals living in a big world, we are connected beings to every single person and particle part of this earth. Our impact is not ours alone, never has that been more clear than now.Read More
The journey inward to discovering our full potential can be the most daring and rewarding and our best gift to those around us.
I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at Booking.com this week here in Amsterdam to discuss this very thing. When thinking of the value we bring to our teams, the focus needs to start within.

In our social interactions, stories create opportunities to relate to one another, loyalty, and memorability. The same is true in business, and knowing one's story is vital when setting off on building a startup.Read More
The mountains have become my teacher, my soul quencher, my inspiration to keep exploring and push limits. Yet in climbing, the journey up the mountain is not without its challenges, trials, and doubt as to whether continue onward. Lately the mountains have been the constant reminder as to why we must keep climbing in life, even when the going gets tough, when the storm sets in, and the top of that mountain seems out of reach.Read More
Lately I have been reflecting so much on PASSION and what it means in my life. Right now it is setting which direction I am going to go. Whether at work, in love, in friendships, in my day to day, if there is no PASSION involved then it’s probably a good sign it’s not for me.
