CREW Omaha Metro Big Event:

Nationally recognized business consultant and speaker AmyK


Want to lead a more productive, energizing, meaningful, high performing, profitable life?

Want one of the most impactful experience you’ll ever have that will simultaneously make you more successful?

Following AmyK’s presentation, she will moderate a panel of Omaha leaders.  The panel will consist of Lyn Ziegenbein, Sharon Carleton, Sue Morris and Stefanie Monge.


Lyn a native, (fifth-generation), Omahan.  She graduated from the University of Kansas School of Journalism and Creighton Law School where she was on the Law Review.  She has served as an Assistant United States Attorney and practiced privately.  Lyn is a member of the Nebraska and District of Columbia Bar Associations.  She joined the Peter Kiewit Foundation in 1983 as the assistant director and became executive director in 1986.  She assumed Emerita status in 2013.  Since then, Lyn is coordinating the re-development of the area north of Cuming from Izard to Seward, 10th to 14th Streets, a project she and the Foundation initiated in 2009 to reinvigorate that blighted neighborhood and foster the organic growth of a Makerhood for artisans and skilled craftsmen.

Lyn has served on many national and community boards and initiatives.  That list includes the U.S. Council on Foundations, the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, a White House Commission, and several gubernatorial appointments.  Her current community commitments include the advisory boards of Film Streams, Habitat for Humanity, and Completely Kids.  Her current board service includes the Omaha Sports Commission, College of Saint Mary, Lutheran School of Theology, Creighton Prep, and three corporate boards of directors.

Lyn is the proud mother of a son, Charlie, (now 22).  She enjoys playing the piano, gardening, designing needlepoint, and aspires to revive her love of journalism to do some serious writing.


As President of Heritage Services since 1995, Sue Morris has been involved with numerous capital campaigns, totaling nearly $600  million, including the $75 million capital and endowment campaign supporting Joslyn Art Museum and the Durham Museum, the development of the $107 million Holland Performing Arts Center, TD Ameritrade Park to host the College World Series and, most recently, DoSpace – a new digital library which opened in November of 2015.  Although Morris is widely recognized for her ability to raise money, her skills include conducting feasibility studies, financing and project management.   Prior to Heritage Services she held positions with the Omaha World-Herald, College of Saint Mary and Nebraska Medical Center.




Stefanie Monge is a serial entrepreneur, consultant, international yoga teacher and writer. She’s the founder and executive producer of the Think Start Do women’s entrepreneurship conference, founder and CEO of Welcor Enterprise Yoga and managing partner at the Petshop Gallery and Artists Co-op in Benson. As a consultant, Stefanie helps entrepreneurs with business planning, strategy and content marketing.


Sharon Carleton is the owner of RingTrue, a leadership coaching and business consulting firm that helps executives build more successful careers, companies and cultures through the principles of Neuroleadership. She is passionate about helping leaders understand the brain science behind stuck thinking, poor decision-making and weak emotional cultures. Prior to RingTrue, Sharon was president and CEO of Ervin & Smith. Under her tenure, the digital marketing firm earned a spot on the Inc. 500/5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies list, and was awarded with Best Places to Work and The Best Place to Work for the Advancement of Women. In addition to her leadership roles, Sharon co-founded Blogglebeans, a social commerce site for grandparents and grandchildren; and has been honored as Omaha Business Woman of the Year, Midlands Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” and Defining Female Leaders, a featured businesswomen’s role model in PINK Magazine, and Omaha Marian’s Alumna of the Year.
