I’m an entrepreneur, best-selling author, and media expert with over a decade of experience training individuals to Brag Better to achieve positive career change. My book Brag Better: Master the Art of Fearless Self-Promotion was published by Penguin Random House Portfolio in June 2020. It's now a best-seller that has been featured in outlets from The New York Times to the podcast Forever35.
I’m also the founder and CEO of FinePoint, a leadership and professional development company with a focus on visibility and voice.
I work with companies and individuals to get the word out about their work. 📣
Most people work too hard on the product and not hard enough on the presentation. Time to fix that. Here are a few of the ways I can help.
Talks + Trainings 🎙
One of the core tenets of my work is to teach women to brag and self-promote (a.k.a., Brag Better™), and to write a vocabulary to talk positively about professional accomplishment. I speak and train at universities, brands, and corporations from Intel, to Levi Strauss, to Stanford University, and more. I am exclusively represented by APB Speakers Bureau.Book Me to Speak
Publishing Strategy 📚
I consult on all things publishing – from thinking about writing a book to understanding what the process is really like. I work one-on-one with a select number of high-level leaders on considering book topics, how to write a solid proposal, what publishers look for, what agents look for, how to liaise with publishing houses, editors, marketing folks, and more, book press and the long tail of publicity, and how to market and release a book.
Along with my writing and speaking work, I’ve cultivated a successful career as a freelance writer for over 16 years, with columns and bylines in outlets including Harvard Business Review, Forbes, FastCompany, The Washington Post, Inc, Elle, Shondaland, Marie Claire, Entrepreneur, and more. In 2018, I collaborated on the book Microtrends Squared with The New York Times best-selling author Mark Penn. The book explores the next wave of trends reshaping the future of business, politics, and culture.

“This book has empowered me to not be afraid to brag about my talents. I recommend this read for anyone looking to spark that fire of over-confidence and go after WHATEVER it is you want! ‘Cause can’t nobody do it like you!”
“I wrote my self review after reading your book. That paid off today – I just got my performance review and got everything I wanted and deserved. I made the title jump a year before most people do and received the biggest raise I've ever gotten.”
“Your book has helped me transform the way I view myself, to be able to stand in my full authentic self-worth. So much so that in the past month I have been able to transition into my dream job and negotiate the salary I know I’m worth.”
