About the Author

It’s important for you to know I am not a writer. I’m a full-time researcher of experiments about the brain and I have been doing for 20 years. I am a public speaker, lecturer and adjunct University Instructor, former high school teacher, business owner and a single-Mom. People pay me to tell them what to do, which makes me a professional “bossy pants”. I have researched and designed 18 courses over the years based on what I consider to be the most pressing issues anyone with a brain needs to know. I have placed the most current research and most compelling strategies for how-to-get-to-your-best-life in one place. I don’t believe most people have the time to hunt down the underpinnings of the brain and translate it into a meaningful, user-friendly format; so, I did this for you fueled by obsessive passion! I conduct professional development for the most unruly of professionals, offer certificates and professional credit, speak at conferences and have traveled as far as Australia to do it. Finally, after 10 years of my clients, friends and family begging me to just write it down so they don’t have to listen to the research I consider “game-changing” here it goes. Should you make some changes and notice something fabulous, please report back to me to let me know.
