Christy green jacket 2014About Christy Demetrakis

Before we get to the professional things you need to know about me, here are a few more things you should know. I love being married. I love being a mom to two fantastic kids who never cease to amaze me. I love God and spending time with my church family. Lastly, I have the absolute best dog in the world…THE BEST!

Depending on who you ask, I can be described a number of ways.  If you ask my husband of 19 years, he would say I’m a “delicate flower” (because that’s what I’ve convinced him to say over the years).  If you ask my two children, they would say I’m always busy doing something but always have time for them.  My dog would tell you I’m the best masseuse in the world.  Mom and Dad believe I’m the person who can do anything I set my mind to do.  None of my accomplishments truly surprise them because they have always believed in me.  No matter how old I get, my Dad still introduces me as “the baby.”  My friends, like Oprah Winfrey…just kidding, call me loyal and independent.

Christy Demetrakis is passionate about entrepreneurship and about helping people to conquer fear and achieve their dreams.  She is the author of Faith to Conquer Fear: Inspiration to Achieve your Dreams and the President and Founder of The Empowered Speaker, a communication skills training company.
