I want audiences to feel empowered.  Not many women know how to hold a microphone and professionally ask for money.  It's a skill I've worked on for years with hundreds of nonprofits.  Auctioneers can be classy and elevate an event.  I want everyone to be excited like they were part of a magical night.  I want my nonprofits to feel in control, and like they worked with a top professional they were able to trust way before walking into the room.   I make smiles happen and guests excited for next year so they want to bring their friends with them!
