I help women navigate the challenges they encounter to conceive or carry their babies—or vision—to full term. As a Fertility Coach, I support them to overcome the emotional and mental hurdles that accompany infertility. As a Brand Strategist, I partner with entrepreneurs to package and give “birth” to their brilliance so they are positioned to change the world with their unique voice and message.
As CEO of NY-based UpLift! Group—a Talent Management & Brand Strategy consultancy—I have worked with entrepreneurs and thought leaders for nearly 20 years to build and leverage platforms that resulted in them becoming award-winning speakers, best-selling authors, GRAMMY® nominated and Stellar award winning recording artists and more. Personally, I fought infertility for over 10 years on my journey to motherhood. I know what it takes to beat the odds and overcome seemingly impossible obstacles.
"I became a first-time mother shortly after my 40th birthday. On a beautiful September morning in 2011, Nia made her miraculous entrance into the world. I scarcely remember her first cry—and didn't even get to see her until the next day—because my heart stopped on the operating table as surgeons worked to deliver her 2.5-pound body."

I believe discouragement is the single-most deadly threat to your miracle baby.
