A cross between Dr. Dolittle, Nanny McPhee, and a type-A Buddhist, I'm an active listener, observer of details, payer of attention, reader and writer of books, kindness enthusiast, and an unabashed optimist.

I'm a former holistic health practitioner and transformational life coach. My doctorate is in holistic health with an emphasis in energy medicine.


My first two books were published by She Writes Press:


Note to Self: A Seven-Step Path to Gratitude and Growth, closes the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

The Business of Being: Soul Purpose in and Out of the Workplace, shows you how to create personal transformation at the intersection of business and spirituality.  

My current book, Indelible, launches Creative Quill—a suspense/thriller series that takes place in the Pacific Northwest. A ticking-time-bomb of simmering tension, this series keeps the space between the pages and the reader emotionally taut. Published by SparkPress (an imprint of She Writes Press), Indelible is slated to hit the shelves April 6, 2021.

I live in the Pacific Northwest with my pilot-husband, Len, and our Irish Wolfhound, Willa. I enjoy yoga, long walks, bicycling, and photography. I love laughter, reading, and travel.
