Thank you for visiting my site and checking out my book! I am honored to serve you on your journey to wake up to your life. I didn’t start to wake up to my life until I took my first intense growth & development course in 1993. It changed my life and had me realize that I am in the driver’s seat. Finally, knowing that, I felt free (and a bit scared about what direction to take) but I was excited and alive again!
From that point on, I was committed to discovering what my life’s purpose was and to creating a life and career with meaning. I hired my first coach and have never not had a coach since. In fact, each coach has been a mirror for me helping me discover my blind spots and creating the space for me to step into my brilliance. I made the leap but I could not have done it without the support of the coaches in my life.
Writing has always been a path toward my own healing. I first began to write poetry as a way to move through challenging times and then as my life became became more fulfilled, I stopped writing. My writing was rekindled after I started my Corporate Training & Coaching business in 1998 at www.thinkpeople.com with a focus on Communication, Leadership, Team Effectiveness & Work/Life Balance. Writing was a way for me to bring my passion for “life” topics into the corporate world.
Since my first writing in 1999, I have written a newsletter almost every month and have delivered hundreds of workshops and webinars in business and life strategies. In 2004, I spun off another business at www.workshopuniversity.com helping thousands of entrepreneurs find their voice and get their unique message out to the world. My time now with Workshop University is focused on speaking, running webinars and supporting entrepreneurs through a home study course at www.workshopandwebinarsuccess.com.
Balance is an important value in my life and while I love my work, I enjoy so many other outlets as well. I am really a kid at heart and love to PLAY! Since I was 5 years old, I have been creating with my hands and now, when life gets crazy, sitting down with a paintbrush or beads is very meditative for me. You can find my art & jewelry designs at www.flamesofgrace.com. (Yes, I am an entrepreneur at heart!)
While I have several businesses and it may appear as if I’m super busy, I do have a secret. I work part-time in each one and that allows me to honor all the different parts of myself from being adventurous and creative to being spiritual and reflective. And, life would not be complete without some Salsa dancing, rock climbing and skiing.
I grew up in New England and had lived there until 2010. It was then that I followed my heart and moved to the foothills of Boulder, CO. I do enjoy my new life out here and I’m looking forward to exploring more of what this precious world has to offer. If you are ever in the area, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I wish you all the best on your journey to wake up to your life!
