In the past month, I have had the opportunity to meet the most amazing women, girls, boys and men that continue to influence me as an author and advocate for girls and women in sports.  I attended Duchesne Academy for Girls and Challenge Girls' Soccer Club - both in Houston. Shelly Bean attended the Ann Bancroft Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala and met legends like Jane Cowles, Cheryl Reeve, Ann Bancroft and Plinette Pierson. Women pioneering the sports world!  I met strong and aspiring girls at the MN Girls' Basketball All-star event and clinic and learned about a young lady who has been practicing her ball-handling skills outside every day (even in the cold MN weather) because of what she heard in my talk.  I'm so proud to partner with organizations like Empower (Pam Borton) and WIN for KC to further opportunities and leadership skills for girls.  Life is full.

The picture you see attached? Well, it turns out I was a story writer a long time ago - although my illustration skills stalled at age 6.  

Interested in hosting me for your next speaking engagement or school visit?
