Professional Coach, Speaker and Potter

After being diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I  knew something had to change. I remembered how to THRIVE and became cancer free! A condensed version of my story is below.

Some of My Story

In 1995 my husband had a rock-climbing accident and that created a sudden shift in our lives. Until then I was focused on my Advertising career and my art life working juggling multiple jobs and then grad school while still working. His accident catapulted me into intense learning and self care including: studying different religious and spiritual practices, deepening my creativity and taking care of myself by working out regularly, eating better and starting a daily meditation/yoga practice.

One day while visiting my mother in Arkansas, as I was walking on a neighboring plot of land, I felt intensely at home. I sat on a huge stone overlooking a creek in the woods and just meditated. I learned the property was for sale. I bought it, went through a divorce, moved to Arkansas, opened a retail art supply business and put everything into the business including all my time. I quit meditating and only put others on the list, but forgot me. Life became a drudgery. After 5 years, my partner had to leave the business, so he could take care of an ill family member. The business had grown too big too fast, so consequently I closed the doors 6 months later to save my sanity. I was entirely burned out! Then I had a cancer diagnosis.

 Wow, the changes. I’ve learned to thrive and am cancer FREE since 2014. After realizing how my grades back in school were far higher the semesters when I had balance with art classes I added balance and focus back into my life. Now I wake to a beautiful yard full of chirping birds, eat as holistic as I can including farm fresh eggs, meditate, enjoy hiking in nature among the aspens, play in the studio more regularly, hang with friends in my empowering book club, and get to help others thrive and live their amazing lives and making their dreams come to life. Joy radiates from every cell in my body. I can help you find what this looks like to you – living life on your own terms and thriving not just surviving.
