LOVE LIFE. LIVE BOLDLY.

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?

Well, it happened in 2013 when my best friend and husband of 17-years, the person I loved and adored, disclosed secrets that betrayed me, himself, our family and the community. When this man I trusted all these years revealed to me that he was gay and holding secrets of multiple addictions, 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? 

As if hearing and living this trauma weren’t enough, my husband’s disclosure triggered the resurgence of trauma I had also suffered from a sexual assault and subsequent birth of my first child at age 17. 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. 

At the core of who I am lies a teacher; I would rather share my knowledge of growth and healing for the betterment of others than anything else in the world. 

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? 

My intention is that through 1:1 coaching, my programs and retreats in the Grand Canyon, or by purchasing 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

RED HEELS

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.

And all of a sudden, I found myself standing on a mountain, looking into the vastness below, with six beautiful women standing beside me. Three on either side. Healing from the inside-out. Sharing our stories. Our hearts. Our souls. ⭐️ ALL SURVIVORS. ⭐️

For these women, this is what it is to be seen. To be heard. To be loved, felt, and supported.
I am you.
And you.
And you.
And you.
And you.
And you.

Because it’s not about the image, the makeup, hair, or the clothes that hang in our closet. {Though I do love my new sunglasses!} It’s not about the cars we drive or the house we go home to. Its not about the newest + greatest workout. Or the best products on the shelf. It’s not about IG scrolls or number of likes on a damn post. No, it’s not about ANY of that!

Life, in the end, is about DEEP connection + vulnerability. It’s about unity. It’s about feeling supported, loved, held, and heard. It’s about going from being a stranger to a soul sister in one-day. In one long hug. 🤍

Life is about learning + teaching. And teaching + learning. This vast world is our forever classroom. And we are forever students.

I am the most blessed woman on earth to be doing this transformational, life-changing deep FUN work with all of you, both men + women! As I’m sitting here writing this, I can’t help but wonder what humans I will meet in the future. What a wild ride it’s been.

Will it be YOU? Tag your bestie below + let’s grow this community with other amazing, brilliant, beautiful humans.

I love you.
I love us.

Breakups suck. When I was in high school, my friends used to drag me to heal their hearts by shopping for bras at JCPenney. I never understood bra therapy.

Anyhow, I’m experiencing my first major break up since high school. It sucks. I don’t step into relationships lightly + I’ve never shared that side of my life on social media before now. I’ve sat with how to handle this for weeks as several of you have reached out + wondered what’s been going on. {So much gratitude for this community we’ve created!} I realize + respect that I’m not the only one going through this. So, I finally built the courage to kinda-sorta talk about it .. I’ve always vowed to walk the walk + share my story authentically as possible {albeit with privacy} for others to know they aren’t alone.

Instead of buying a new bra {no judgment for those who choose this type of therapy! Lol}, I bought myself a new pair of sunglasses I’ve had my eye on + went to go watch the sunrise on a peak this morning with my co-lead Grand Canyon adventurer + grief coach @mooncasson . As nature would have it, we arrived + found out the forestry is closed in all of California due to fire threat. Go figure! Lol! Metaphorically it just made sense. One more lesson in “things don’t always go according to plan.” It’s also a reminder that for goodness sakes, my friends, life is happening FOR US - not TO US. It’s a reminder to breathe + release control. Life is about our response to situations, not our reaction in the moment.

So now I’m running on the beach in between work. Heading for a massage afterwards because I’ve had a knot under my left shoulder blade since all of this began {somatic healing at its best - LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. Energetically connected with emotions, this knot is a direct correlation with a hurting heart.}

For all of those feeing sad, please remember that nature heals the heart and soul! For all of you that have been reaching out, thank you. ♥️ More later but for right now, I’m taking space for me + putting into practice the personal tools that I teach.

Love and learn. Here’s to the same old bras + brand new sunglasses!

Drop a ♥️. Tag your friends!

I believe in love. Always.
