Nobody Puts Fireball in a Corner

A story about dirty dancing, messy networking, smooth moves, and bold leaps of faith. The power of believing in yourself and taking your place on stage. And the power of meeting people who pull you out of the corner,  invite you to the party, lift you up, and help you have the time of your life.

An Extrovert In Exile in a Pandemic

A story of grief, resilience, and transformation. Paired with trauma, drama, dating, and comedy. A personal and professional crisis caused by a global pandemic. Themes include loneliness, belonging, community,  identity, and home. And pursuing your dreams.

A Hot Mess AND a Fierce Fireball

You can be a hot mess AND a fabulous fireball all at the same time. What does it mean to embrace the best and the worst parts of our personality and our lives – in private and in public? How do we balance authenticity with professionalism? How do we show up as our best self when our best self is having a really bad day or year?
