A practical and inspirational guide for women looking to unleash their unique value, redefine their female tribe and thrive with support.


"Assemble the Tribe is a battle cry for every woman who’s ever felt isolated, outmatched, or unassisted..." -Entrepreneur Magazine



Like so many women today, I always wanted to have a crew, a group, a tribe. However, from a young age, like so many women, finding my Tribe was difficult, and I found myself more closed than open. 

However, no matter what I did or where I turned, the desire to find my Tribe and create strong, thriving female connections never faded. It's not to say that I never had amazing friends and colleagues, however, that group of women that would travel life with me for the long haul eluded me. It wasn't until I experienced a sudden and tragic loss that I began to understand Tribe in a whole new way. 

Assemble the Tribe is about radically redefining & reinventing how we experience connection. It's about finding sisterhood and experiencing thriving community for yourself and creating it for others. In its pages, you'll see me shift from closed to open and redefine and reevaluate everything I thought I knew or believed about Tribe.  You'll also read the stories of women whose lives have been changed and transformed by the power of Tribe. 

Now more than ever, in a world that constantly threatens to rip us apart, I believe that finding our tribes is not optional. Whether you're looking for a tribe or feel like giving up, Assemble the Tribe will help you to unlock the formula Believe + Belong = Be Different ®  to build amazing relationships ~ especially a sister tribe. 

No matter your past relationship experiences, the simple truth remains - You need people and they need you. Every day we design the life that we will walk into.  Today could just be the beginning of something new. It's your turn, it's your time to assemble your tribe. 

As a tribe builder and coach who works with leaders and everyday women around the world, finding and creating thriving tribes in life and leadership can be tough. 


+It's for the seeker who knows she has value & wants to change the stories she tells herself.

As I read, I felt understood, hopeful, and inspired. I found myself wishing that someone had shared this wisdom with me when I was a young girl, a teenager, or even as a young woman. The insights written in these pages are truly priceless!"
