An accomplished speaker and author, she has been invited to speak twice for TEDx – in New York City and Wilmington, DE – and brings her expertise to a variety of global organizations including Google, Workday, FIS Global, and Johnson & Johnson. She was recently named a SUCCESS Magazine Woman of Influence, and has been featured in top TV, podcast, and print media including Forbes, NBC, Washington Post, Fast Company, and more.
Henna founded Pryority Group to realize a vision that transformational speaking, coaching, and performance growth workshops shouldn’t be limited to the C-Suite, and because she believes the key to most people’s success is leaning into awkwardness a little more and worrying about stinking a little less. (She might just have you do both.)
Throughout a 14 year career in staffing, Henna broke multiple records and successfully matched over 1,000 finance and accounting professionals into new opportunities, with companies ranging from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 global organizations. While there, she won Rookie of the Year, Performer of the Year, and was a perennial top 10% performer, earning the attention of several publications, podcasts, and more.
She’s a lifelong learner – she’s been studying human behavior and performance for over 2 decades and loves to bring a fresh energy to business practices and conversations. Her best-selling book, Good Awkward: How to Embrace the Embarrassing and Celebrate the Cringe to Become the Bravest You, was endorsed by both NFL Quarterback Russell Wilson and former editor of HBR Karen Dillon, and was named a Kirkus Reviews’ “Best Book of 2023.”
She graduated with honors with a BS in Finance from the University of Delaware and her MS in Accounting from University of Virginia. She also earned her Coaching Certification from American University and achieved her Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential through the International Coaching Federation.
She also loves traveling the world with her husband and 2 kids and spoiling the Cavapoo puppy that she swore she never wanted (and now can’t get enough of).
