I love talking about:

Neurodiversity (Education, Inclusion, and Workplace Design)

Accessibility (Design, Inclusion, and Societal Impact)

Inclusion (Society, Workplace, and Sustainability)

Innovating People Operations (HR, Recruiting, Tech, Curiosity vs Ego, etc.)


A bit more about me...

From being the little girl who sold shares in her "company" and played HR (even firing my own mother!) to the traveling entrepreneur and international speaker that I am now, I have had quite a journey! I have six invisible disabilities, both neuro and physical, and I am successful WITH my diagnosis, not in spite of them. 

Born in Dallas, Texas I began rescuing animals early on, and as an adult, I became a proud foster mama, even for wolves and exotic animals.

I spent most of my early professional life with start-ups and grew to truly enjoy and thrive in that world. My favorite of these roles was working with the travel partner to the Dallas Cowboys! 

My parents always encouraged my entrepreneurial spirit, and boy did that pay off!

I currently live in Florida and run a company called Titan Management, which I founded in 2014 with the purpose of shaking up HR and inclusion! I have definitely honored that purpose, and have become known for my human-centric, creative approach to recruiting as well as my fun and unique inclusion strategies. Oh! I nearly forgot... I also invented the first ever anti-bias ATS!

In my spare time I Host two shows, Career Launch Live and The Fry Show, and am the President of the Board of the international neurodiversity and nonlinear group, The Octopus Movement.

Inclusion and People Operations have become my passions, and I have dedicated my life to innovating and growing them.

My missions are: Integrity, Inclusion, Innovation

I have spoken for AIMS (United Nations), London School of Business, SHRM, HRDS, Web Summit, Success Champions, and many more wonderful events, organizations, and shows. I was quoted in Forbes and have written several articles myself.

I love to have fun and engage my audience while helping their lightbulbs light!

Check me out on the podcasts: That's BusinessCo-Create Podcast, The Toxic Tea Room, When People Thrive Companies Thrive, and Tech Diva Success!
