I am so excited to share my new book, Called to LeadSuccess Strategies for Women. It is a true collaboration. I am honored to be invited by NSA Hall of Fame Speaker Pegine Echevarria, CEO President and Founder of Power Women Worldwide, to be part of this journey among 17 gifted women leaders across the globe in creating this fabulous book!

My Chapter, "ABBONDANZA!!! Food, Family, and Faith" supports your belonging and belief in yourself and being a role model for your children! I share my spirit of abundance connecting this trio of food, family, and faith, transforming confidence from the kitchen to the boardroom. I hope you feel inspired to lead after reading my chapter and the chapters of my fellow authors, remarkable women leaders.
