Now she’s inspiring others to dream big and believe anything is possible. Since her addition to the NFL’s roster of officials, she has become a trail-blazing inspiration to women everywhere, embodying the notion that with a belief in self, inner drive, hard work, preparation, and a mindset of being the best you can be, no barrier or ceiling is impenetrable.

+ The lessons she’s learned in leadership, persistence, and breaking barriers
+ Key insights on overcoming adversity – and the odd
+ Finding your passion while maintaining work-life balance
