Let's talk about Event Apps for a moment
First, let's cover some app history:
I was fortunate enough to work for a company willing to adopt technology so I think I was around at the beginning of the app revolution (or close to it in 2013/14).
I was privy to the beginnings of CrowdCompass when Cvent bought them and all of its various bugs and glitches and it simply not working (shoutout to our account managers, Kristen Koenig & Gurpreet Singh for the overtime hours they put in helping us with all those crashes!).
Back then, there was…

I'm excited to introduce you to my beautiful, powerful, magical friend and mentor, Stacey Friedman! On this episode of This Isn't About Me, Stacey and I talked a lot about being a woman, the many iterations of SELF and being human... who we have BEEN and who we get to CHOOSE to be this year, next year, next season, etc. And of course a bit about being an Empath.
I met Stacey a handful of years ago at an event and have stayed connected with her ever since. There's something powerful and magical …

Podcast Episode 8: Emotions, deep healing & love with Shelsey Jarvis
This episode with Shelsey Jarvis was a deep dive into what it looks like when you're down to your last straw and in need of major healing. Since we met back in 2018, Shelsey's life has changed so so much as she transitioned into her current work around creating deep relationships. We talked emotions and what it takes (and looks like) to feel all the feels in order to heal the inner parts of yourself that need love.
I believe this is a MUST LISTEN episode for everyone out there. There is so m…
Podcast Episode 7: Diversity, Inclusion & Pronouns with Kristy Ware
This episode with my dear friend Kristy Ware (they/them) was so so good. We talk about Kristy's career transition as they've moved from being exclusively a health and wellbeing coach into their role as a Workplace Inclusion teacher and coach over the past 5 years (since we met!). It's been a lifetime of learning and stepping in for Kristy and I'm so grateful we got to share this story on this episode. We also dove pretty heavy into pronouns and what it's like to have options t…
Podcast Episode 6: The power in the PAUSE with David Delisle
In this episode I'm joined by my very good friend, David Delisle, Author of The Golden Quest, Founder of The Awesome Stuff, Investor and dad.
Per usual, this episode runs all over the place but the common thread we pulled out was David's unique way of approaching the world in just approaching it with open, non-seeking curiosity. A common theme that emerged was there's immense power in the PAUSE that comes after creating a joy benchmark.
We covered you Awesome Stuff, seeing …
Podcast Episode 5: Entrepreneurial Volunteerism with Jill Valentine
Oh how my heart loved this conversation with Jill Valentine, founder of UGO Impact!
To be honest, I knew very little about Jill and her mission before this episode which you will hear in my semi-stunned and lost for words voice throughout the conversation as it all landed with me. We dive deep into volunteering and giving back both locally and internationally and everything in between. I'm so passionate about the topic of volunteering and was pleasantly surprised as this con…
