Dubbed a “Moxie Maven” by the White House Office of Public Engagement for her unique and effective approach to women’s leadership, Alexia Vernon is the founder and president of Step into Your Moxie—a certified women-owned and disability-owned business enterprise that shows executives, business leaders, and consultants how to find their voice and master using it in communication.
Light on theory and rooted in hands-on practice, Step into Your Moxie’s coaching, training, messaging, and certification programs ensure our clients can walk into any room, conversation, or onto any stage and speak up for themselves, their important ideas, and call people to take action.
Alexia’s ‘secret sauce’ is teaching executive and senior leaders how to develop their people and create a culture where everyone can speak up and feel a sense of safety and belonging.
Alexia speaks regularly to Fortune 500 companies, CEO forums, professional associations, and universities and has contributed to CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, Forbes.com, Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com, European Business Review, and Women’s Health Magazine. She is the author of the award-winning book, Step into Your Moxie: Amplify Your Voice, Visibility, and Influence in the World.
