Hello and Welcome!

I’m happy that you’re here and hope that we touch base either here on The Blog or in person supporting young people in living true.  I am a lucky wife, lover of people and nature, speaker, executive director, and health advocate.  I believe in living and leading from love.

Stephanie Armstrong Teen SpeakerChoosing love has led me to speak with hundreds of thousands of people on body image, self-esteem, and leadership, in high schools, middle schools, and conferences throughout the U.S. and internationally and to found a 501c3 nonprofit to support young women as they rise to leadership.

In short, choosing love saved my life. Once a perpetually stressed Manhattan magazine girl straddled with injuries and debilitating illness stemming from a life-long swimming career, I have seen my life transformed into one of connection, fulfillment, and health.

Since 2006, I have been on a journey back from brokenness, and I attribute not only my healing but also my sense of purpose, connection, and fulfillment to this one choice: love.

I have valued many other things in my life – success, winning, my weight, brand names, job titles, college admissions, associations, and other status markers. I had to lose everything to find the one thing that truly matters: relationship.

I believe we have in each moment a choice. When we are aware of that choice, we can always choose to act from either love or fear – never both. One will always prevail. I used to think that life happened to me until I began to wake up and realize that in our awareness, we always have a choice.

Stephanie Armstrong Speaker

I am the founder of Heart of Leadership, an 501c3 non profit organization that helps teen girls navigate the pressures of our achievement culture.

I have also been a speaker for Teen Truth Live, America’s premier school assembly experience.

In May 2013, I earned with high honors a Masters in Executive Leadership, a values-based business and leadership masters degree, from University of San Diego and Ken Blanchard Companies.

To book me to speak with your school or organization or to refer me, please contact: info@heartofleadership.com.

Please join me in the journey of The Choice – this wild ride of what’s possible when you lead from the heart.

Welcome to the journey! Here’s to The Choice – mine, yours, and ours –

“There is no fear in love.”

From the Heart,
