Your Strengths

Drawing on the Strength of Experience to Help Others:
All of us spend a great deal of time trying to figure out who we are… what do we have to contribute… what is our brand… what should we invest ourselves in…

After 20 years in K12 Public & Private Education, 8 years coordinating a global student teacher collaboration, and 5 years of motivational, technology, professional development speaking, this pastor's daughter discovered Gallup's Strength Finder™ program.

The impact it had on her interpersonal and professional life compelled her to share this with others. Carol Anne is committed to empowering you and supporting you in both a personal journey and an interpersonal fashion.
