“Do the best you can with what you are given and go for it with a smile” Marsha Gressingh Busciglio (my mama) This the foundation of my life. A lesson from my mom early on. She was in heaven less that two years after this photo was taken. Her wish to my Dad that I grow to be a strong, independent, adaptable, capable, confident, empowered woman. So that one day when they are both gone I would be ok… I am. I’m me because of you mama. Happy Mother’s Day to the most beautiful mother ever whose impact was massive in the very short time we had together on Earth. I love you so much and thank you for your gifts, protection and guidance from heaven. 💐
Looking forward to spending some time at the Hyatt Regency in Lake Tahoe for my next speaking opportunity on inclusivity removes invisibility! April can’t come soon enough! #seemeforme

Sales kick off at Knock with a speaker/training from LinkedIn and this slide obviously completely caught my eye. Six LinkedIn member types represented AND the image that represents “job” work, productivity, personal accomplishment, success, independence, and financial freedom is not only a woman 👏 but a woman who uses a wheelchair 👏 to make it all happen.
OMG WHAT!!!! This speaks volumes to where we are headed as a society and what we believe is possible in ourselves and others. Here I’m represented publicly as a professional and a productive member of our society and it means EVERYTHING to me!
Looks like I have new speech content, thank you Jeff Weiner and team. What an amazing unforgettable moment for me as a business executive, motivator, speaker and successful strong woman in a wheelchair! Our differences are our strengths & our opportunity. The way we choose to market our companies, products, and people is powerful and pushes forward professional change and opens the doors to possibilities and opportunities for all. We then believe in not only ourselves but others. Well done LinkedIn!

#PMM with Michael Richter (Oracle), Sritej Velaga (Oracle) and Elena Coley (Google).
This week I had an opportunity to give a talk on: The Empowerment of a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace at the Empower 2019: ASU IT Professional Community Day Conference. Fun to share my professional journey. Im humbled to see how sharing my real life experiences over my career, the true story of inclusion, how it feels to me the “end user” & how we might master inclusion at work a little more is so very impactful to those I have the privilege to share. With this speech I was able to for sure evoke thought on a very important topic that does seems pretty buzzy today and finally has started to be valued at work as an asset rather than looked at as a box to check off. Still lots of work to do but this is a start. My true hope is to have more opportunities to share and more opportunities open minds which will hopefully opens doors to those that may follow me. It’s my honored to have these moments of impact. The future is bright!
