Author | Storyteller | Speaker

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.

Growing up, I wanted to be a magician, international spy, and a mad scientist. There’s still time!

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


Many people think I’m an extrovert when, in reality, I’m an ambivert—an outgoing introvert. 


I walked across Scotland, a 211-mile journey from the North Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. At the mid-point, I climbed Ben Nevis, the highest point in the British Isles.
