My mom, Flora Parisky and me at the 3rd Biennial NE Women’s Policy Conference, Boston. She is 81 in that photo and her trailblazing energy is with me all the time!
I'm on a mission to make some drastic changes in society.
Because at the rate we are going...
our grandchildren's children, still won't see the end of sexual misconduct.
We're the Ones We've Been Waiting For...
--my personal story--
As a business strategist for the past 20 years and an entrepreneur since I was 27 years old; I’ve primarily helped progressive lawyers live highly productive, profitable, and happy (!) lives at ILoveMondayMornings.com.
THEN MY LIFE SHIFTED, BIG TIME.
In 1991, it was bad enough that a man who by all accounts sexually harassed another human being was barely investigated and then nominated and confirmed to our Supreme Court. Then in 2021, it happened again while my insides stirred and rumbled; an accused rapist, again with a juvenile investigation, was nominated and confirmed.
First witnessing Anita Hill and then Christine Blasey Ford demonstrate their unbelievable courage while being publicly grilled and retraumatized on national TV by a room full of US Senators, who were untrained to address trauma nor who conducted a proper investigation (there was no typical courtroom process); I knew I had to share my story too.
I’m a survivor. I spoke up 44 years after it happened. Publicly on Facebook. Enough of this shame and silence.
SHARING MY STORY CRYSTALIZED WHAT I OBSESS ABOUT:
I’m obsessed about Influencers and Policymakers being exceptionally commanding & persuasive & effective & unstoppable in ending GBV; in other words: Badass. Game Changers. Legacy Leavers…
I partner with Influencers and Policymakers* to significantly leverage and elevate your awesome power so gender-based violence can be eradicated. I’m here to harness that energy across state lines, help share resources, create alliances with other visionaries, and most importantly, to be strategic — and in action — in how to get this done.

"Just Watch Me"
In 4th grade, I refused to say the pledge of allegiance. I felt disingenuous standing with my hand on my heart.
How could I claim “with liberty and justice for all” when I knew that our country was not fulfilling that promise for all people?
As far back as I can remember, my goal has been to “change the fabric of society, so that it’s fair.”
Also at age 10, a babysitter told me that I would grow up and forget my desire to change the fabric of society. Annoyed, I retorted with, “Just watch me.”
