You know that thoughtful friend of yours? The one who’s interested in what you’re up to lately, makes you laugh even when you don’t feel like it, and reaches out to you at just the right time? The one you go to for advice because she just seems to know stuff? Yeah – that’s Myra.
Myra has a gift for connecting that her friends and clients benefit from, and you will, too.

By sharing her challenges and the ways she found strength through even the darkest days, Myra kindles a fire in the hearts of her audiences. A natural storyteller, she’s as entertaining on the platform as she is between the covers of her books!
The story of how she found her calling – helping people to “Enjoy Life and Do Good” – revolves around the heartbreaking loss of her husband, Phil. Myra learned that it’s possible to reclaim a sense of purpose even through life’s difficult journeys. In sharing her story with audiences, Myra lifts them up and challenges them to work with purpose, live with passion and make a difference in their world. Since she knows that laughter truly is the best medicine, Myra always treats audiences to a heaping helping of belly laughs, with a side of titters and the occasional guffaw.
Giving keynote presentations and workshops for companies like Coca-Cola, AT&T, Delta Technology and Porsche, Myra’s charm and content has meeting professionals calling her back for more. As a speaker for associations and conferences, the personal touch she brings to every platform always wows the crowd.
There’s a special place in Myra’s heart for women’s groups where she’s called upon to cover topics related to women in the workplace. That’s something she knows quite a bit about! She’s served on the Board of Directors for many women’s organizations and has interviewed over 100 trailblazing women to hear their stories of success, overcoming obstacles and following their passion.
As a writer, Myra can make you laugh, cry and nod agreement as she unearths universal truths. Her work includes Mama Always Says, Musings on Major and Minor Matters that May or May Not Matter, The Sun Sisters Guide to the Girlfriends’ Perfect Beach Vacation, and her memoir, Building a Life You Love After Losing the Love of Your Life.
You’ve probably read her wisdom quoted in Investor’s Business Daily, The Employment Review, McCall’s, Woman’s World, Selling Power, Healthcare Industry Executive, Value Retail News, The Executive Report on Customer Retention, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Media outlets find her a delightful interviewee. She’s experienced with appearances on TV, radio and podcasts.
Perched in a condo overlooking the heart of Buckhead, Myra writes presentations, articles and books while photographing the changing Atlanta sky. When she’s not working, you’ll find her networking, participating in fundraising events and chasing new adventures. A favorite pastime is driving her red convertible on the curvy North Georgia mountain roads with the sun on her face, the radio blaring and her hair whipping in the wind.
