About Me

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."- Matthew 5:16

My passion is to share what I have learned with those who are truly trying to make a positive impact in the marketplace, looking to grow their business the right way and to be able to compete with the big boys. What I have found is that businesses sometimes forget the importance of integrity, excellence and fairness when it comes to business transactions, valuing your people, and staying relevant. They take their employees and customers for granted, and end up losing them to competitors who can add greater value to their business or team. I want to expose the darkness in the marketplace and bring light by teaching Kingdom principles and enabling business owners, management and professionals to identify their God-given gifts and abilities in order to be effective leaders, accelerate their business and grow their market share.

Selected as "Review It" magazine's 7th annual "Most Influential Woman in Business" for 2017, I credit my success to tenacity in overcoming life's challenges and reliance on the Word of God, which is the basis of my relentless faith. I am the chairman-elect for 2018 and a board member of the Spring Klein Chamber of Commerce and the Houston Gateway Academy, which is a charter school that has about 2200 students spread over three campuses. I am also the president of the NAPW Woodlands chapter. I am a public speaker with a message geared towards entrepreneurs, leaders, and (especially) women. I am KHOU's local business coach of choice for the Spring, Tomball, Champions, and Woodlands area. I am the founder and CEO of Favor and Wealth, a business and personal growth consulting firm based in the Galleria, working exclusively with entrepreneurs, CEOs, leaders of startups, and emerging, established, and struggling businesses and organizations globally to improve and transform business and personnel performance.

I hail from the island of Oahu (Hawaii). I moved to Houston in Dec 2005, with hopes of fulfilling a dream to change the marketplace and impact the world for the better. I graduated from Bauer Business College and the Program for Excellence in Selling at the University of Houston, where I earned a degree in Marketing and International Studies. I am an innovative growth strategist and speaker with a passion for teaching and implementing Kingdom (biblical) principles in the marketplace, enabling business owners, management, and professionals to identify their God-given gifts and abilities and use them to become effective leaders and accelerate their business.

I am a certified John Maxwell trainer, speaker, and coach, well versed in building strategic partnerships through persuasion, negotiation and personal presence. I have demonstrated over 14 years of success in B2B sales, management, operations, project management, recruiting, and marketing across various industries including industrial, engineering, IT, restaurants, tourism, education, logistics, and retail. I have a proven track record for building relationships, cultivating partnerships, improving processes and growing businesses. Over the past eight years, I have secured over $500 million of business for employers she has worked for and clients she has coached.

I am also a published author. My book, the Ugly Side of Sales, seeks to expose what truly happens behind closed doors. In it, I provide practical business applications, innovative ideas and marketing strategies that I have used in the past to win and grow business for companies and clients alike.

My Mission: Empower Wholeness, Truth, and Freedom in the Marketplace by Helping the Good Guys Win in their Business and in Life!
