Supporting you to

If this is the next 30 yrs of your life, is this enough?

That was the question that started it all for me, and it came from my heart. Now, everything I do is about empowering you to create a more fulfilling life and be a more purposeful and impactful leader. As I like to say, it starts with FINDING YOUR PAJAMAS!


You see, my life changed forever the day I made it my mission to get children in emergency shelters across New York City a pair of pajamas. Such a simple gesture touched so many hearts big and small, and we expanded across the country! Before I began volunteering to read bedtime stories to these children, I had no idea that tens of thousands of them were going to bed every night without pajamas. You can imagine the trauma, despair, and loneliness I saw in the children’s faces and that broke my heart, over and over again. Once I began my visits with pajamas, my heart seemed to know what to do – I had found my purpose – in PAJAMAS.


Instead of just dreaming about doing something great, I founded Pajama Program, which is changing the lives of children, but also impacting so many of our supporters’ lives too. Learning to listen to the voice in my heart changed my life forever and helped me become the person – and leader - I always wanted to be. And in the middle of it all, I found myself being interviewed by Oprah!


Now, Let’s Talk About YOUR  Purpose, Passion, and Leadership!

I have learned that everything begins when we find purpose in our lives. So many of us are re-evaluating our paths because we want more fulfillment. We want the work we do and the people we do it with to make a difference in this world. This kind of thinking can transform how you do your job, how office teams work together, and how leaders at every level lead. 

I want to help you listen to your heart voice, honor your purpose and your passion, and FIND YOUR PAJAMAS!

Purpose, Passion and Pajamas
is now available

This book is the story of how I found meaning and purpose in my life & work, and how you can, too.

When we restore the human connection to our lives, we also  restore meaning to our lives because we start to care about each other and  what we can accomplish together.

How do I know this? Because I was disconnected myself 20 years ago. It took a little girl’s simple question to unnerve me and then propel me into a life filled with meaning.


I am a witness to the power of the human connection  at work and the impact of  leading with meaning.

If it happened for me, it can happen for you.
