Becky Schmooke (pronounced “Smoke”) is the founder of Stoic Edge Consulting and Becky’s Mindful Kitchen. Focusing on providing action based mindfulness and leadership training to organizations and individuals who are ready to do things differently.
With humor and vulnerability, she uses storytelling to blend together Stoic philosophy and modern science to empower the audience with not only new tools, but the skills in which to use them, to turn obstacles into opportunities and put mindfulness into action.
Becky’s approach to speaking is to leave the audience curious and confident to test what they just learned, not to hype them up with motivation that ends the moment they leave the room and real life resumes.
She uses her degree in theater arts and 10 years of public speaking and teaching in her position as founder of Becky’s Mindful Kitchen to connect with her audience. She has worked with teams in healthcare, corporate, first responders and the NFL, along with providing free workshops on mental health and leadership to teens- bringing her Stoic Edge Leadership Programs to audiences across the country.
Becky has put her words into action by running BMK, providing truly unique team building and leadership retreats, leadership workshops, private parties and classes and weekly summer camps for kids. In growing her business to include a commercial teaching kitchen, fairy tale treehouse, archery range, survival and first aid training, wood fired pizza oven, chickens, baby goats and a timber adventure playground, Becky learned countless lessons that she shares with her audiences and clients.
As a mom to three girls, 50 chickens, 10 goats, 2 dogs and as a wife to a firefighter- life is never boring and provides Becky with endless stories which will leave you feeling like you have known her your entire life. She brings an energy to the stage that puts the audience at ease while keeping them engaged and curious to hear what is coming next.
In all that she does, Becky has one goal, to build compassion and confidence in others to see leadership as a lifestyle, not job title, so that they can take action to live their best life, not just pass time.
