To transform the world by empowering people to move beyond their differences and focus on the good in and around us.
The Heart to Hands movement is an opportunity to Power Up Your Good. A way to balance the inner scale through positivity, empowering yourself and communities through education, services, and ongoing partnerships.

Our Story

Now, more than ever, our world needs to be reminded of the good in and around us. The good far outweighs the negative, yet we are led to believe the opposite. Power Up Your Good focuses on the positivity we can find every day in ourselves and our communities.

Inspired by the book Heart to Hands, the Power Up Your Good was born out of a desire to spread goodness, love, and light to those in need. Through project kits, a story-driven podcast, monthly subscriptions, fundraising opportunities, school, and workplace platforms, Power Up Your Good provides the ideas and tools necessary to practice kindness in one’s daily life regularly.

The real work begins when each individual chooses to act, channeling the good intentions in their heart to the actions in their hands. As we all take steps to invest in personal growth, we’re able to love others in even greater ways.

While there is no doubt that our world will continue to experience the effects of difficult times, our experiences will ultimately prove that we can always grow stronger by renewing our focus on what is truly important. Together we can illuminate and contribute to the positive acts around us every day to create an even better world.

We will get there by balancing the scales of heartfelt acts of self-empowerment and acts of service.


I like to tell people I am like a deck of cards. I have many different experiences in my life, and I work to stack them to favor myself and humanity. The good and the bad cards have made me who I am today. Like many good card players, I play the hand dealt to me, but now, I have learned that there are no good and bad cards, just how you use your creativity to play your cards.

The best hand I ever played and won triumphantly was raising my two children. They are the best gift in my life. For that, I am genuinely grateful. Some of the stories shared in the book come from experiences with my children.

I have an extensive background in the food world. I don’t think there is part of the culinary, media, sales, consulting, and manufacturing world I left unturned. For most of those years, I owned my own companies built mainly on sweat and tears. My lawyer calls it the business school of hard knocks! Along that path, I am grateful to receive help (sometimes a lot of help) from friends and family.

I am fortunate to have a mentor in personal growth since my children were infants. Through her, I learned about many different tools to help me grow and live from the inside out. I guess you can say that I have been gaining the tools needed to share with others how balance is the key to a full life. That is, empowering yourself is a gateway to empowering others.

I am curious to see how far this project can reach all the possibilities it holds. Most of all, how many hearts we can touch and inspire to be all who they can be. I genuinely believe life is best when it is led from the heart.

If there is one legacy I could leave in this world is to be a leader for people to be true to their hearts and live from a place of joy.
