About Amelia

It’s always challenging for me to write about me.  There are so many other exciting and challenging conversations to have with people.  However, I realize that getting know something about me will encourage you to take this journey with me.  “It’s all about the Journey” is my personal tag line and also my blog title. Here's a secret for you... “it will also be the title of my first book.”


I do believe that it's all about the journey.  Where you go, who you meet, what you learn and most importantly what you leave behind.  We will talk more about that in my blog posts.


I am a student of leadership and a practitioner.  I absolutely believe that the leader whether in the home, community, boardroom etc. influences the culture and consequently the success or failure of the organization or group of people she leads.


I am committed to the need for authentic community engagement.  “If you don’t use your voice; then you have no voice.” You will hear me say this time and time again on the journey.  I have too often sat at decision-making tables and observed others making decisions and choices for those who are voiceless…not acceptable.


I am a business owner.  Why?  The Sandbox was created to provide a platform to introduce others to the world, to be a vehicle to share my skills and gifts. Ultimately, I believe work can be play and play can be work.  Let’s have some fun!


What are my successes and challenges?  Who are my clients?  What are the goals of my business?  All these questions and answers will be found as you journey with me.


I am Amelia and I am excited that you stopped by the Sandbox.  Welcome!
