Her Story

Millicent spent most of her professional life downplaying her abilities to further a secure and well-paying career. For a long time, she believed that there was nothing beyond what she saw. Seeking happiness and fulfillment, Millicent changed careers to do something designed around her passion and purpose.

After a near-death experience, she discovered her passion to inspire transformation within others. Determined to upgrade her life, living life by design, not default, she began playing bigger and re-designed her life. She now helps burnt-out business professionals who are ready to make a career pivot into corporate training. She helps professionals command the corporate classroom to an expert-level and leverage their experience so they can do what they love - in training and development.
