Traci Shoblom was literally born public speaking.  Her dad, famed San Diego disc jockey Lee Shoblom, put a microphone in front of her face on the day she was born, and it's been there ever since. Holding the honor of becoming the youngest female disc jockey in the US, Traci had her own radio show at 14 in 1980. 


Traci was also raised by Apollo 12 astronaut Richard F. Gordon, from whom she learned the qualities it takes to "shoot for the stars." His death in 2017 profoundly changed the way Traci sees the gift of life.


Traci creates engaging stories, both in written and oral formats making her audiences laugh (and cry) while learning what it takes to live the life they've imagined, both in business and in their personal lives. Whether it's through fiction, non-fiction, or the spoken word, Traci's passion is helping people learn to love life.

Traci has worked with leaders and celebrities in almost every field, including Ken Blanchard, Anthony Robbins, Les Brown, Brian Tracy, Marshall Goldsmith, Dr. Mark Hyman, David Bach, T. Harv Eker, Nightingale Conant, AuthorHouse, and Herbalife, among others. 

Her portfolio includes more than two hundred explainer videos, five Nightingale Conant audio programs, and dozens of corporate training videos, crowdfunding pitches, and online commercials.

Her recent book, The Power of Charisma, co-authored with Dan Strutzel, can be found in Barnes and Noble as well as online. She's also written four other books on topics relating to professional development.

Traci earned a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Southern California and an M.S. in Organizational Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology. She also earned two Master's level certificates in health education and health coaching from the National Institute of Whole Health.

Through her own work, and her association with Marshall Goldsmith and Nightingale-Conant, Traci has inspired more than 7500 executives around the globe. She's worked with companies as diverse as UCLA, Cal State Long Beach, ExxonMobil, Johnson & Johnson, Budget Car Rentals, GTE, Sun Microsystems, Nortel, and Northrop Grumman.

Traci is a passionate vegan, and lives in Glendora, California with her son and seven rambunctious dogs and cats. Her  daughters are off pursuing their own dreams.
