My mission in life is to inspire adults and youth to discover their full potential and the gifts that lie within.
Whether I stand up to speak in front of an audience of sales people at a corporate function, or an auditorium full of youth, I want each attendee to know that I’ve been in your shoes. I know your pain, your doubt…and underneath all these often crushing emotions, your deep-rooted desire to reach a dream. To find purpose. To become the best of all that you are.
Through corporate and organizational keynote speaking and presentations, I help supervisors rebuild the feeling of family amongst their teams. I inspire employees to rekindle the spark of enthusiasm and rediscover their purpose within the organization.
I love to inspire young people at schools, colleges, universities and youth groups, where I create a forum where they can openly explore the unique gifts they bring to the world. Through my Unwritten – Stories of Significance television talk show, I inspire youth to overcome challenges and hurdles so that they can take charge of their lives, discover greatness and find their rightful place in society.
For me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing adults and youth challenge themselves, go through the process and then see the results…confidence, smiles and a brighter outlook for the future.
In addition to being an inspirational speaker, singer and recording artist, and community producer/host, I’m the recipient of the 2016 IWAA International Women’s Achievement Award, the founder of the New Tecumseth Student Advisory Committee and the Kimberlite Enterprises Youth Singers (KEYS).
My why: As a child, I grew up in a dysfunctional family where I consistently doubted my abilities and my self-worth. In 1998, I was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease that lead to 5 brain surgeries and a life dependent drug that I continue to take daily. When I speak to people about moving from the pain and doubt onto becoming the diamond each and every one of us was meant to be, I speak from the heart of someone who’s been there.
Family is everything to me and I would not be the success that I am today without the support of my husband, best friend, love of my life and rescuer, Shaun. I’m the proud mother of a handsome, accomplished and intelligent son, Michael who reminds me daily of how blessed I truly am.
It was Shaun who came up with the name, Kimberlite. Kimberlite is a type of rock, most commonly associated with diamonds! Within a kimberlite matrix, carbon ends up becoming concentrated and turns into what is known as a diamond. A diamond’s extreme hardness, refined beauty and brilliance come from being allowed to develop the right environment.
The word ‘diamond’ comes from the Greek ‘adamas’, meaning invincible… the exact attitude needed for success!
Kimberlite Enterprises’ main goal is to provide such an environment for you to define yourself and flourish.
