This site is for women wanting more from their lives, and for themselves. It is for women ready to listen to the whispers, and sometimes full-out shouts, from within.
I have spent decades acquiring experience and credentials that enable me to do lots of things — but I have discovered that I am most useful, impactful, and satisfied when I am helping women change the conversation they have with themselves from one of judgment, fear and diminishment to one of compassion, curiosity, and courage. And when this essential conversation changes so does the world.
“We are each other’s harvest; we are each other’s business;
we are each other’s magnitude and bond.”
— Gwendolyn Brooks

My native language, as I’ve come to realize, is a language of the heart – feminine, emotional, holistic, and personal. While a good bit of this language pops up in my corporate and life coaching conversations, I wanted more.
