It's Time for your 'HAHA' Moment

Mikalee Byerman (which rhymes with “prickly fireman,” though do note she’s neither grumpy nor adept at fire suppression) is a former CMO and VP of Strategy and a current leadership consultant, humor strategist and Erma Bombeck-ish writer. She channels her C-suite background to teach others how to fix their serious communication problems — as in, how to sparkle their marketing, spark creativity at work and tap into their genuinely delightful authentic selves — with the help of a pair of underleveraged power tools called humor and humanity.


Mikalee is a humor essayist, travel writer and keynote speaker. She has authored two books, with the second edition of “100 Things to Do in Reno Before You Die” just released this fall, and her writing has been featured in Ladies’ Home Journal, Southwest Spirit Magazine and Alaska Airlines Magazine, as well as on the Huffington Post. In 2023 she became a two-time winner of the “Best Local Author” title in the Best of Nevada awards, previously also holding the “Best Creative Writer” title.
