You’re likely here to see how we can work together. And while you can jump to my professional bio below, I’d rather you know the other dimensions that make me me because that’s the only way we can have the best working relationship. So, let’s start there.
The stuff you should know about me bio
I’m one of those people that may have married their soulmate. My husband Andy Walker is a rockstar (not a really rockstar. He’s a former TV host and tech analyst. That’s just my word for someone who is out-of-the-world awesome.) We have a son named Carter, who is just as rad. He’s 9 and has loved dinosaurs since he was 2. He’s got a giant heart. Caring for others is his super power.
Our family lives in Canada, not far from Toronto and Niagara. We’re in a quaint town with a bunch of mid-century homes. We leave on an escarpment in a lovely farmhouse that’s been updated and has a ravine in the back.
We have a golden retriever that we adore. Her name is Charlotte Kennedy “Doog” Daisy Walker. We call her Charley for short or “The Love Sponge.”
I’m obsessed with personal development. I have spent my life learning from some of the world’s best as a student and colleague. I’ve worked with many world-class coaches, business people, health experts and spiritual teachers. I run daily with a personal growth audiobook and could be caught many nights attending virtual classes on metaphysics. When I have a problem, you can bet I’m guinea-pigging solutions.
I care so much about growing as a person because I believe that’s what we are all here to do; we are here to grow, get better, experience cool stuff, find out what we love, and share our skills.
Beyond that, here are some of the things I stand for and believe in…
- For every problem in life, there’s a simple formula or solution to solve it (this is why I’m in content).
- I really care about women succeeding in business and being badass leaders.
- I strongly believe in eating healthy and treating our bodies well because they are our foundation.
- Being with animals and in nature heals my soul.
- I read A LOT. Non-fiction is my jam.
- I stand for entrepreneurship and leadership education for kids
- I know a lot about mental health. I suffered a major burnout as an event planner in my twenties. So I care deeply about people taking care of themselves.
- I have interesting perspectives on technology and society from my work on Super You. I am very positive about the future but worried about the amount of change society is (and will) experience.
- If you’ve read my site, you’ll know I’m a creator. I love to make, build, learn, and innovate.
- Lastly, on the DISC, I’m a High-I personality. My letters are I-S-D-C. On the Kolbe, my numbers are 6-4-3-6. On Myers Briggs, I’m an ENFP.
Okay, now, onto my professional stuff.
