I stumbled into my work in the personal and professional development industry when I needed a job and took a position as a Sales Rep for a training company in 1991. Little did I know that it would turn into a lifelong career. 

I always enjoyed personal development and I found that sharing that work with others was an untapped passion. I went on to become a facilitator and coach, opening my own practice in 2000. It has been a wonderful journey.

It hasn't been a straight line, though. I have dealt with some challenges along the way. I took time out to help with our family ranch in Montana, worked my way through a significant bout with Lyme disease and was able to help care for both of my parents through their illnesses and death. I know what it is to deal with life's twist and turns, handle it in the best way you can, and move forward.

In my free time I enjoy dancing, hiking, working with my German Shepherd, Nia fitness training, volunteering and spending time with the people I care about. 

If you're ready to go for it and create a life you love, I am ready and willing to help you make it happen.
