A Conversation

with Me

Here is what I bring…

An understanding and application of consciousness principles as the source of the results I produce, loads of education and experience (read more in the “Just the Facts” section above), an incredibly broad scope of work environments where I have created success for myself and others (not to mention happiness and joy!), lots of tenacity and grit.

What do I love?

“Doing the work I do!”


Inspiring people through my speaking and teaching.


Creating sacred spaces for people to engage deeply into what is important to their hearts, minds and souls and then go out and create an amazing life or amazing work teams that aligns with their passions.


Spending time alone (I like my own company!).


Training people and teams to be more effective, congruent and happier.


And most of all, I love my family, my home(s) and my deeply nourishing spiritual connection.

What is my best accomplishment?

“All of my dreams come true – and I know exactly why that is the case! (And best of all, I can engage with you on a journey of creation that will inspire you, your team or your company to the same knowing).”

Some more fun facts...

Put doing a TED talk on my vision board in 2011 and 6 months later was invited to do one. Love that.


Have delivered inspirational talks to thousands of people in every sector of society: corporate, government, education, private, civic and spiritual.


Ran a successful private counseling practice for over 20 years without ever advertising (not the smartest business move, but it worked! My mantra was, “Stay in one place long enough and don’t suck at what you do.”)


Was hired by an organization to work with their most difficult office and created a profound shift in their organizational culture – so much so that I was hired to replicate the work repeatedly in other arms of the organization.


Served as board president at my church for such a long time that I forgot that I was a volunteer (10+ years!)


I am the least stressed, most productive person I know as a result of the programs I teach!


Fulfilled a lifelong dream of buying a summer home in the Thousand Islands and reinvented my life to actually live there in the summers.


Have created curriculums that transform people’s lives – starting with my own!


I am the most happily married person I know!
