Professional Experience

Words are my Super Power. I'm a fan of empowerment, personal development, life purpose, self esteem and overall well being stories. In January of 2011, with only my savings and 401K dollars in hand, I took a leap of faith and launched an empowerment organization for girls. I put my writing background to good use these last four years as I've grown Severson Sisters.

Due to my work on The Huffington Post, I was asked to blog for The Utopian Life. This is my debut piece.
People always ask me how to find their life purpose! This is what I tell them.
I love great love stories! This is my favorite. It started with a love letter and a long waltz.
Four years ago this month, I took the biggest leap of faith of my life. Four years ago this month, I said YES to the Universe and my life purpose! I launched Severson Sisters, an empowerment organization for girls that empowers them to live as their authentic, awesome, super self.
I blog for The Huffington Post. This was my debut piece and to this date still my most read piece. I love this piece and have much more to say about the topic.
I have learned a lot about balance these last four years as a CEO of a non-profit. I believe part of my role as a leader is to share my own lessons. I found my way to happiness and this is a blog I wrote about my journey.
