"I'm so happy you dropped by! Over the last decade, I've had the time of my life. I've worked hard to honor my fathers legacy and bring his dream to fruition. His dream... has become my dream and blossomed into a reality that's helped families worldwide!
My road has certainly been a journey and one I am proud of. Becoming an entrepreneur has certainly been an adventure. The path's I've crossed and the friends I've made have made the adventure worth it... every day along the way!"
My Dad - My Inspiration
I personally know that chaos can add to profound and overwhelming emotions. I understand that grief can lead to poor decision making, total collapse and depression. With the help of my father’s effective planning, I now can help others minimize the impact of chaos after a loss or during personal and natural disasters.
As a 35 year veteran in corporate sales, project management and training, I know first-hand how preparation and planning will allow both individuals and corporations to navigate hectic and challenging times. I've been able to create, design and offer others a step by step system that makes planning for the unthinkable easy to implement.
I've spent the last decade educating, speaking, and on a mission to ensure that everyone takes the necessary steps to have a plan... just in case the unexpected and unthinkable happens.
The Crisis Planner has led me down many paths including, best selling author, award winning international speaker, TV show host, consultant, life planner, coach and ultimately my favorite... a problem solver.
I provide tools and resources to create a disaster plan for life's unexpected to facilitate recovery, avoid family conflicts and control chaos. Preparation and planning allow you to navigate and thrive when blindsided by life.
The Home System allows you to create, organize and communicate essential plans when the unexpected occurs... such as illness, disability, death, divorce, job loss or a natural disaster both in and outside of your home.
I've been featured as a speaker on podcasts, radio, YouTube channels. I've appeared on TV (NBC, ABC, & FOX), and have appeared in numerous media publications. I have spoken on stages across the United States. Internationally I've spoken in Cuba, London, Ecuador and India. (details on my Media page)
