Dr. Lisa Raymond

I understand first-hand how the barrier many face between fear, knowing and doing can feel overwhelming.  At one time or another, we have all done a little self-sabotage, been harsh and critical of self, and allowed stress to stop us from moving past fears and achieving goals leaving us stuck in the moment. Realize, with work, you can get past this "stuck" feeling.

I believe that communication should be the driving force that enhances not only organizational relationships but also personal ones. As an educator, I work to empower individuals to be more authentic with themselves by increasing communication skills in relationships, career development, and anger management.  By starting with the core approach of teaching self-worth, confidence, accountability, and empathy, individuals can utilize these transferable skills when communicating with others in business and personal relationships. 

As an empowerment specialist, I serve as a liaison between insights and implementation, how to create a plan and then reach for the goal. From start to finish, I work to inspire others to overcome obstacles through empathy, positive communication, self-love, and active participation and engagement.
