How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?
After many years of being jill of all trades and a master of none, I’ve finally hit the ignition point where I now see that my life was building for exactly this point. It did not make sense before because my life’s work is about being a visionary in the right now. When I coach people now it feels like flying! It’s one of the most amazing feelings I’ve ever had!

Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?
My ideal client is that person who has noticed a few things about life that don’t make sense. They see that pretty much no matter what they do, life is super challenging. Those who think, “well, that’s the way life is,” those who are willing to settle, they are not ideal clients. My idea client is the person who wants to get back into their life’s flow. They must be willing to make the financial and time commitment it takes to be coachable.

What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?
Glad you asked… Most see me as a coach but what I am is a TOOL… MAKER, FINDER and DISTRIBUTOR. My life’s work is to teach people what tools will help them connect to their life’s work! It is simply what I was born to do… and it feels sooooo good to do it! I also authored a book that hit Amazon’s Top 100 Books on Happiness. It is an incredible tool that is available in audio book, paperback, ebook and larger print versions.

Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?
My role model growing up was a woman who worked in a bookstore. She was so very independent, elegant, creative, authentic. I had never seen someone be so herself! It opened up a whole new entire world of what was possible!

Last Memorable Book You Read and Why?
Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff. I was surprised that I absolutely loved it! It took my surprise how much I learned reading it.

Favorite Movie and Why?

“Go to” Quote or Mantra that Grounds You?
“Whatever you focus on controls your life.” Maria Salomão-Schmidt – I know it’s my quote but I really do use it over and over again to ground me when I feel off.

Accomplishment Are You Most Proud of?
I’m most proud of my book, Finally FULL of Yourself: Unlocking Your Spiritual DNA because it took 10 years to write. During that time I was channeling/working out something I knew would help a lot of people. As a mom of five, wife, business owner… there were countless days I got up at 4am or went to bed late so I’d have time to write. I did this even when people in my own family put me down. I did it even when I put myself down for not finishing it sooner. I never gave up. When I hear from people how much the book has helped them break painful, useless patterns… it just melts my heart with LOVE! May reading this inspire you to never give up on what’s calling you.
