As someone who has lived through some of life’s most difficult traumas–including sexual assault + relational and betrayal trauma–I believe that we all have the power within to become our best self and live life boldly. 

My life began in a small, one stoplight town in the Midwest surrounded by corn-fields and creeks. Today I live in California by the ocean and mountains where I feel the most at peace.

How did I get to this place in my life?

I overcame sexual assault at age 17 which resulted in the subsequent birth of my beloved son, and 23 years later endured the resurgence of trauma when I  learned that my husband had betrayed me throughout our 17-year marriage and shared that he was gay.

The news slammed me to the floor and made me question everything. Could I survive the pain and find forgiveness? How would I like my future to look? And could I make a new life when I felt so broken?  

The pain was overwhelming, yet I lived daily by what my parents taught me when I was 17 years old: place one foot in front of the other and keep walking from a place of integrity. You will get through this. 

I put on my running shoes and ran for my life.

I climbed mountains and paddled the ocean to release my fear and anger. Nearly two years later, the healing work I did created a shift; I felt a sense of being grounded. I felt safety, clarity, and forgiveness. It was time to help others do the same. 

It was after healing from these traumas that I discovered her life purpose was in helping others walk through their pain to find healing on the other side. Now I coach individual men and women through their own life-shifting journeys of healing and transformation using the same tools I used to heal from my own experiences.  

My intention is to connect with you, the client, and guide you on your healing journey. Are you ready for a shift? Do you desire empowerment and change? Are you longing to feel inspired, find your purpose, and grow in a supportive and nurturing environment? 

You can take your own first steps to healing from your past (or present) by booking a discovery call with me to see what type of coaching is right for you.

Or get started on your own by reading my book, WALK THROUGH THIS: Harness the Healing Power of Nature and Travel the Road to Forgiveness, you will become the person you aspire to be. 

Please reach out. I created all of this for you.

I was constantly being questioned how a mom of three boys could reinvent her life at 40 years of age, guiding and coaching others in the Grand Canyon/Wilderness. At the same time, my femininity was being questioned as I was exiting a marriage where my husband is gay.

Though seen as strong, I wasn’t always seen as feminine … which stung.

At my Core, I am Pure Woman. I am also an Adventurer at Heart.

I decided that I wanted a symbol, something for me, which would show the world that a woman does not have to be put in a box. I wanted to show that we can do our nails and summit a peak on the exact same day. We can hike trails, climb boulders and still come home to put on a dress and heels. We can embrace, love and honor all sides of ourselves.

It came to me one day while running. “I will buy a pair of red stilettos and wear them on the peak of Mt. Baldy…for me.” I posted my picture on social media and the response was surreal. Through that one picture, a message was also posted to the Universe… that women CAN be Strong and Feminine.

My heels have seen Peaks throughout Yosemite, Mt. Wilson, Cucamonga Peak, Mt. Baldy, San Jacinto, San Bernardino Peak, San Gorgonio, the High Sierra Trail, Mt. Whitney … and many, many others.

Red represents courage, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. I will never stop embracing me…

Hopefully these red heels give you the courage to do the same.

Share what you’re practicing in the comments. Let it be true.

If we practice avoidance of our hearts desires. Of our dream of living as intended. If we practice avoidance of our deepest love. Of fear for what could be. If we practice avoidance of passion + integrity + intimacy + connection.

If we practice avoidance of our own heart + our own healing ...

bringing our biggest, most fulfilling dreams into reality will never come true.

So please ..

STOP AVOIDING. And start becoming.
THIS is why I do the work with all of you.

To bring your dream of living in "peace + calm" to reality.
