How does strengths-building vs. weakness-fixing sound?
Join me on a mission to build a strengths-based thinking community!

I spent most of my adolescent and young adult years attempting to live up to the expectations of others. I always found myself in comparison-mode, feeling ‘not good enough,’ i.e.: stuck in weakness-fixing. When I came upon the CliftonStrengths assessment (formerly known as StrengthsFinder 2.0), I began to understand how I’m wired and that when I use my talents, I offer something valuable. My world shifted!


I’ve been on a mission ever since, to foster ‘strengths-based’ thinking everywhere I go and with everyone I meet. I want others to live their best lives, armed with a full knowledge of their strengths.


My wish for you is that you will … Rise to your Strengths-Edge -- Because it’s in You!

Why flowers? Why coffee? 

Flowers represent beauty and growth. Focusing on our strengths allows us to bring out the best in us; it lets our beauty shine. In this process, we can't help but grow as we find the courage and are encouraged to step outside of our comfort zones to something greater!

Enjoying a cup of coffee with a friend is perhaps one of life's greatest pleasures; it is anyway at Strengths-Edge! There is warmth and comfort in that hot cup of coffee. The rising steam signifies upward movement and change, which is the goal with every strengths conversation, and as the steam disappears, we are reminded that as we grow, learn and practice applying our strengths -- showing up at our best becomes a way of being. 

My wish for you: 
That you will Rise to Your Strengths-Edge... because it's in you!!
