Our Story

Bravery. Authenticity. Empowerment. Side by side, it’s easy to see the correlation.

Even now, both Lynn and I are hit with a proverbial “DUH” when we think about all the ways our values and our work collide.At first blush, though, it’s not so obvious. Having spent the better part of my career fostering professional growth, it wasn’t clear to me how my work might be directly tied to the work of, well…a cop.

Then in one night – one moment, really – that all changed.

I’ve always had huge respect for law enforcement officers, and had long admired the incredible work Lynn does in leading women, specifically, through personal safety courses. On a whim, I asked her if I could watch her work.

Almost immediately, goosebumps ensued and tears welled.  As a coach, I’ve dedicated my life’s work to fostering authentic, courageous growth in my clients, but more often than not, that change happens in small, incremental ways over a period of time.  In a few hours, I saw women begin to transform from unsure, nervous and closed off participants to strong, empowered, and quite frankly, blossoming versions of themselves.

In an instant, I realized that our work was and is completely aligned. Same goal. Same outcome. Different process.

But what if we could combine our gifts to foster an even greater impact by combining communication, with the physical, and with the emotional? By marrying verbal strength, spatial strength and emotional strength?  Our answer?  More holistically empowered women.  Everywhere.

Empowerment Inc., was born in this moment; in witnessing this blossoming, I knew there was a tremendous opportunity for both of us to use our gifts to nourish hearts, minds and bodies with empowering beliefs, thoughts and skills to build life-long resiliency.  Because resiliency builds empowerment.

This is why we equip women to be powerful negotiators, communicators and self-advocates… so they can get the raise and pay they deserve, have the relationships they truly desire, and viscerally experience their power. This is more than a self-defence company.  This is more than a self-help company.  This is a journey in Empowerment.  Won’t you join us?
