The Origin Story of
DFW Networking Diva
My background is in education. As a college professor, I taught communication courses and coached the speech and debate team. Thoroughly enjoyed teaching, mentoring, and inspiring. But the hours were brutal, as any coach will tell you!
After years of juggling it all, I took time off to raise my boys. I will forever be grateful for that opportunity, a blessing that not everyone gets to enjoy.
But we raise our children for export so what does a mama do after they fly the coop?
My mother was doing credit card processing and suggested I try that. Hated it. LOL. But I learned a lot – and it’s just as important to know what you don’t like as it is to know what you do like!
What I discovered is that I LOVED networking and when I met with other professionals, they wanted advice on communication, networking, marketing, and strategy. And I thought to myself… I might as well get paid for it. I’m already doing it anyway!
Hence, the creation of Networking Diva. And although I wouldn’t officially label myself as a Business Coach, I often find that my clients need business advice before we can actually jump into marketing. So we offer business strategy sessions and marketing coaching & fulfillment. Networking is automatically part of everything we do.
I have an amazing team of Marketing Professionals that I collaborate with, specialists in a wide variety of skill areas. Together, we have created the ultimate Marketing Agency, allowing each marketer to embrace their own professional goals while working together to serve the greater good.
My Teaching Experience
A graduate of California State University, East Bay with a degree in Speech Communication, I taught college courses on topics such as interpersonal communication, conflict management, intercultural communication, gender communication, resume building, interviewing skills, and business presentations.
I also taught public speaking and coached an award-winning speech and debate team. As an experienced public speaker with awards in Persuasive Speaking and Speech to Entertain, coaching just seemed to be a natural progression.
