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


Cynthia built the RISE mentoring programs using her experience as a trained facilitator and Gallup Certified Consultant. Her approach gives students 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 students she works with — from athleticism to academia... 

Her main goal is to help her students 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 in a group setting or one-on-one.


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

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