My mission is to live "on purpose" and to inspire others to do the same. It isn't always easy....yet that is part of the story. Our journeys in life give us life. Truly understanding, not only what that means, but the HOW and WHY of it, and feeling that "understandingness" deep in your bones and in every cell, creates for you a world in which the unknown and the struggles become simply "just part of the ride" and perhaps even intriguing! An awesome sense of freedom overtakes you, and you are motivated to keep on towards your highest potential.
This "understandingness" didn't come for me overnight, nor do I profess to have "gotten it". In fact, I often wonder, what is it that I haven't quite realized yet? There is some aspect --many aspects!-- that is yet unknown. And that is exciting! Sounds strange, but it's true.
So here I am, feeling blessed enough to walk this Earth deeply connected to my Truth....so that I may offer whatever gifts I can to make this world a little brighter, a bit more elevated, and way more joyful every day.

Grateful beyond words.
Mother of 2 amazing souls
plus my inner child- that's 3 :)
plus my kids' pets which I take care of.
Inspired and motivated by the wisdom of stories-- pedagogical, classical, spiritual/zen, and those of everyday life.
I ask: What's your story?
Spiritual Warrior & Teacher
Stressed? Conflicted? Feeling stuck? Stretched thin? Lost yourself while helping everyone else? Wondering what to do next?
For years, I'd struggled to hold balance in my life and the lives of my family. Life was overwhelming and stressful. We are a travel hockey family with one coach and 2 kids in the sport....and one awesome hockey mom who is also juggling many hats. I still struggle with the balance of it all but getting to this place where I fully understand how I control my experience has brought me a transformative sense of freedom and joy. It's a mental shift which settles not only your mind but every cell in your body.
We are but a microcosm of this grand Universe. And our work, like that of the Universe, is a continuous cycle of taking in life, circulating, processing, and letting go. It is becoming aware of our depths and the flow of our days, weeks and years. It is recognizing who we are and what we are passionate about-- and finding the grace and equanimity to carry forth in our Truth. It's knowing and trusting in the tools and inner wisdom that allow you the experience of freedom, joy and peace.
We all wish we had more time, more space, more arms, more options and maybe a few clones. 😊
I can help with this. (No cloning or extra arms).
Every story sounds and feels different. It is different. Yet, it is all the same.
Discover your Truth and the How's and Why's of your life. What's your story? Let's talk.
