Rebecca’s personal mission is to change the way in which people work together which permeates true culture shifts. The core of this process is to help individuals increase their self-awareness so that they can then recognize and utilize their own unique abilities and the unique ability of others. Once that is achieved at the highest levels in an organization, true culture shift occurs which transcends the environment into one of human respect and inclusion.

She has run women programs, many of these based on her book, both internationally and across the USA for clients and women associations. She is a co-author with Drs. Ken Blanchard and Deepak Chopra in "Roadmap to Success." Rebecca lives in Plano, Texas with her husband and their dog Bailey, and she runs the Lumina Learning USA office in Dallas where she oversees clients and practitioners across the Americas.
