I am a professional life coach seasoned by 15 years of coaching experience and my love for life-long learning. I enjoy working with clients who have come face-to-face with decisions, transitions, dilemmas, and desires to heal and grow into the next version of themselves. I value cultural understanding, the energy of love, the power of compassion and the dignity of gentleness.
Personal life coaching is my second career. I do what I do today because I believe in the goodness of life. I believe in the power of love. I trust the human spirit. I believe in possibilities, and I believe in impossibilities. I do what I do today because it is fun. I learn something new every day.
I believe personal life coaching is a viable, sought after service that nurtures everyone interested in actualizing his or her highest potential. Coaching allows me to be of service to my vision of health and healing for others, our planet and myself.
I know I can’t do it alone, nor do I want to. I know that when we get clear about what we do, and why we do it, we can move forward together with beauty, dignity and grace. That is why I value my membership with the International Association of Coaching and the Institute of Coaching.
As a grandmother and an elder in the 21st century, I am willing to be fully present both personally and professionally.
I have been involved in the health care profession for over 30 years as a Family Nurse Practitioner, Cranial Sacral Therapist, author, educator, speaker, and mentor.
Throughout my career, I have been a leader in the evolution of integrative nursing and medicine and I am experienced in conventional, complementary, and alternative health care modalities. My undergraduate degree is from Boston University, Boston Massachusetts. I have a Masters Degree from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. I did postgraduate study with Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. My initial life coach certification is with The Fearless Living Institute.
Before I went to nursing school, I majored in wildlife biology. My love and admiration for the wildness of the natural world have mingled with my deep dive into the mysterious world of health and healing.
Wildlife Biology and Nursing, combined with a 50 year meditation practice, and postgraduate study at Harvard Divinity School, have initiated me into the sacredness and tenacity of the natural world and the human spirit. The magic created by that mingling continues to guide my personal and my professional life every day.
Besides respectable academic achievements, coach training, coach experience, leadership, and tenure, my most precious achievement is having raised two beautiful babies into caring, loving, and adventurous adults. I am a grandmother as well. I care about the future for all children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and beyond.My passion for witnessing the beauty and mystery of life, healthy healing, and the promotion of peace and kindness are integral to my daily life.
