cynthia headshotCynthia started her first consulting business, Image In Marketing, in 2004, focusing on relationship building and employee/client trust. In 2014, Cynthia experienced StrengthsFinder for the first time. Later that same year, she received her certification as a Gallup StrengthsFinder Coach and founded RISE Strengths.

Cynthia built the RISE curriculum using her experience as a trained facilitator and Gallup Certified Consultant. Her approach gives clients a better understanding of who they are and how they can capitalize on their strengths — instead of focusing on their weaknesses.

Cynthia excels at bringing out the best in the people she works with — from business professionals to high school students. Her main goal is to help her clients identify (and effectively execute) their talents and strengths, facilitating personal and professional success.

To do this, Cynthia has developed a series of proprietary workshops and training sessions, which can be done as a team or one-on-one.

From youth programs to corporate groups, large government agencies to nonprofits, Cynthia has experience working with organizations of all shapes and sizes.

She is a true advocate for her clients, offering support, encouragement, confidence and a sense of direction. Clients and colleagues alike consider her a trusted advisor and mentor.
