When I heard Missy speak on my campus I learned how to be dangerous, how to make allies within the realm of macro practice, and most importantly how to create change through policy advocacy.

COACHING

“The past eight years of my life have been filled with hopeless moments and collisions with fear.  My emotional state was desperate, empty and struggling.  About two years ago I reached out to Missy as a lifelong friend and asked her for guidance.  She helped me pick up the pieces that were left of me and get out of a marriage that I should have left years before.  She helped to me see what I should be striving for and hope for what she knew could be mine when I was ready to try.  This past fall, I was ready.  I once again reached out to her in a moment of desperation.  Not only did she help me, she pulled my life into a place of hope, triumphant moments and strength.  She enabled me to let go of all the “what if” and “I can’t” responses that had become triggered by daily life.  She made me see the positive in my future and how I, and I alone, controlled my destiny as well as where my decisions would lead me.  She allowed me to realize that I am a strong sassy woman who can achieve anything I choose to.  Thank you Missy for being one of the single best mentors, friends and confidants any woman could have.  I am truly blessed to have you in my life!”
