“If you had told me when I graduated from college that this would be my life, I would have never believed you, and yet, it’s the only thing that makes sense after transforming my own life again and again. If I don’t share what I’ve learned, what’s the point? With over 20 years of corporate leadership and training, followed by another 10 years facilitating transformational leadership experiences, I’ve seen and experienced almost everything. And I Go First, is not only one of High5’s Key Messages, it’s one of my own personal values. I will let our student and partner testimonials speak for our results.”
