She’s produced five successful virtual summits involving dozens of subject matter experts on everything from sexual addiction and betrayal trauma to divorce recovery, educating over 20,000 attendees from 100 countries. She enjoys teaching digital marketing strategies to mentors and faith-based non-profits who need help multiplying their mission’s message online.
