It’s Your Turn!  Leaders are made within

When I was told at an early age that I couldn’t be an engineer because I was a girl, I started on a journey to prove the nay-sayers wrong. It lit a fire not only for me personally but drove my life’s work to develop others to achieve their potential, especially young women.  This book is a positive guide for young women to equip themselves for future leadership roles by leveraging their strengths and practicing during the formative years of 13 – 18. What’s unique about the book are four things: 

  • It’s a leadership self-help book for teens
  • The chapter topics of focus were decided through a survey of women reflecting on this age range (all generations represented)
  • It’s interactive for readers with activities at the end of each chapter to practice what was learned
  • A Facilitation Guide is available for parents, guardians, counselors, youth leaders, Sororities, etc. to lead guided discussions on each chapter topic

The storytelling style makes it a fun read, and readers can envision themselves as the protagonist in many of the shared real-life stories. Most of all, this book is a confidence builder during a time when it’s often most needed, in hope of spurring the reader to change the leadership landscape of the future. The message to these young women is to TAKE YOUR TURN!

About The Author

After graduating from the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY, I became an Army Officer in the Corps of Engineers. I served for 11 years on Active Duty, in the Reserves, and the National Guard both internationally and within the US. I was hired by General Motors for my leadership experience and Engineering background. However, the leadership team recognized my strength in leading and developing others and promoted me to a role in Human Resource Development. The people side of the business has always been my passion, how to help develop them, how to improve team effectiveness, how to grow managers into stronger leaders, so this role was the perfect fit for me. I returned for my Master of Training & Development with a focus on Organizational Development at Oakland University, in Rochester, MI and have now been an HR Leader for over 20 years. Along with these experiences, I’ve also led in other capacities as a Ministry Leader, Athletic Coach, and Chapter Sorority Leader. I believe that these experiences allow me to sow into the lives of those who need guidance or want to guide others to embark on a leadership journey.
