About Me

Building Connections


If you are an Event Planner, individual, or part of a team that desires to improve personal and professional growth through the development of leadership and other self-improvement skills - this is the right place for you! 

After deciding I wanted more out of life than a routine 9 to 5, I began asking myself what I was waiting for to live my life to the fullest.  Whether as a keynote speaker, presenter, or workshop leader, I help break through the boundaries that are limiting you or your attendees from also living your life to the fullest. Let me help you move from a world of what if's to a world of tomorrow's victories. 

A Philosophy for the Future | Group Coaching


Paragon Lifestyles, LLC is a company devoted to helping individuals benefit from adopting a lifestyle of self-evaluation and self-improvement through public speaking, workshops, and virtual group coaching. 

We are only limited by the things that we allow to limit us. The keys to success and productivity are already in your pocket. You just need a keynote speaker or virtual group coach to show you the lock and empower you to open the door. 


Keynotes | Workshops | Presentations


Calling all Event Planners! As a John Maxwell certified keynote speaker, leader for workshops, and innovator, I will bring new life and connection to your next event. Contact me, and we can design a public speaking opportunity that fits your needs and your budget.

The Real Connection


I developed keynotes and interactive workshops while single-parenting, completing my doctorate and working full time. With over 20 years of professional experience leading, managing, facilitating, participating on panels, and public speaking, I would love to help you break free and take a leap of faith. Whether that means gaining control of your staff, making sense of your crazy boss and messy co-workers, or just finding your confidence - I am excited about empowering you in a group session to take that leap of faith.   

Free Your Mind


Unfortunately, too many of us know how it feels to work in a hostile environment or encounter harassing behavior.  What are the steps that keep us sane and confident in those moments? Using my research and first hand experience, I have developed specific keynotes, presentations, and workshops that will empower you and your attendees to move past the negativity and take control of your personal and professional environments. This keynote, presentation, or workshop will help you leverage your inner power, implement boundaries, feel great about the work that you do, and Conquer Your Impostor!
