my story

My journey hasn’t always been easy. I have experienced a miscarriage, divorce, a layoff, and a depression. I raised my son as a single mom working full time and managing a house. The gifts of these experiences are many! Because of the challenges, I have developed creative, meditation, and yoga practices to fill my life with resiliency and vitality. I am a believer in the Heart with a capital H. I practice creativity almost everyday as a way to stay connected to something bigger. The hard times launched me into my truth.

20 years ago I started an adventure that would change my life. I was soul-searching and signed up for a coaching certification at the Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara. There I learned the transformative gift of listening and have been listening and asking questions ever since. I’ve put my coaching skills to practice coaching leaders in Fortune 200 companies for the last 20 years. I have dug deep into emotional intelligence, empathy, values and vision, and behavior change. I completed coursework from the Coaches Training Institute and am a certified HeartMath coach and trainer.

I'm a little crazy about...

I love to meditate and pray. My favorite meditation time is in the morning, and I especially like meditations with a heart focus, followed by a little dancing.


I’m a mom of a 21 year-old ginger, Tyler. I love him to pieces and am so grateful for our relationship.  Right now, he’s a senior at the University of Wisconsin, Madison with plans to go to med school.


I’m a Minnesotan. I was born in St. Paul, and have spent my adult life in Minneapolis. I own and operate a snow blower. For over 50 years of my life I have visited this special lake, Lake Marquette, every summer.
