When people ask me what I do, I tell them, “I do what I love, and I love A LOT of things.”
I AM a…
Conscious Creator. Light Shiner. Proud Mama. Rich Hippie.
And also a…
Speaker. Coach. Author. Entrepreneur.
I’ve always been insatiably curious about everything. The first question I ever asked, “But WHY?” ignited a lifelong passion for exploring the deeper meaning of life and human potential.
I believe in living life with your head in the clouds and your feet planted firmly on the ground. I believe in balancing the wisdom of the heart with the practical demands of life in a modern society.
I’m deeply spiritual and I love business. I crave silence and I love to talk. You could say I’m a bit of a paradox.
On the spiritual side…
At age 19, I was fortunate to experience a series of life-changing events that catalyzed a profound spiritual awakening within me. The fifteen years that followed were a period of deep self-exploration, teaching, healing, and love. I spent years volunteering with hospice, which influenced me in the most profound ways. Death is truly one of my greatest teachers. I travelled abroad and studied with shamans and curanderas in Mexico, South America, and the United States. I received formal training in energetic healing techniques and became a Reiki Master and Yoga teacher. I participated in many meditation retreats, actively teach meditation, and am a student of Lama Surya Das in the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. I’m an ordained non-denominational minister and preside over baptisms, weddings, and funerals in both religious and secular ceremonies. I believe that all spiritual traditions contain valuable, timeless wisdom that can rejuvenate us and transform our lives. In 2013 I became a mother. My daughter, Satori, whose name means “the moment of awakening to your true nature,” has certainly awoken me to mine.
On the business side…
I started my first business while in college and within three years I had two more businesses under my belt. One of those businesses became Ceremony Officiants, one of the largest and most successful wedding officiant companies in the United States. I’ve been a college Admissions and Academic Counselor, where I dove headfirst into formal leadership and life coach training. While working full-time and running multiple businesses, I earned my Master’s in Human Sciences (Psychology) with a specialization in Thanatology and Grief Counseling. I’m the founding president of the International Association of Professional Wedding Officiants, which has members in 17 countries on 6 continents. I’m a proud Tuesdays Together leader in the Rising Tide Society, helping to educate and empower creative entrepreneurs to thrive in a spirit of community over competition. I have a professional certificate from UC Berkeley and The Awareness Training Institute in The Power of Awareness (mindfulness training), and I am a 200-hr RYT and I still teach yoga on Saturday mornings. I’m a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association, and give keynote speeches and seminars around the country. Most recently, I wrote The Conscious Entrepreneur: A Guide to Maximizing Your Potential for Success, Freedom, and Happiness.
As a coach, I support a select group of clients who are ready to transform their personal and professional lives through one-on-one coaching, mentorship, and retreats. As a consultant, I help businesses and organizations bring mindfulness education and practices to their employees and members. You can learn more about working with me here.
Ultimately, I STAND FOR LOVE. I want you to love your life and your business as much as I do. But, enough about me – let’s talk about YOU.
I believe that you are no less than a fantastic miracle. I trust that whatever you are experiencing right now is the exact thing that you need to evolve your consciousness. You have the power to dream wildly and to create the life you really want. You have the power to change EVERYTHING – your career, yourself, and even the world – simply by becoming more conscious. You are not what happened to you, nor are you the voice in your head. You are worthy of love. In fact, when you get to the heart of it, you ARE love. I believe that you have the ability to align with a force even greater than yourself. You are WAY more intuitive than you think you are. You don’t have to sacrifice what you love for a paycheck, and you don’t have to live by someone else’s rules. You absolutely have the power to experience more freedom, more success, and more happiness right now and I’d love to help you!
