After 35 years of caring for others in physical therapy, I now find myself drawn to caring for others through counsel and in particular through story work to help a person grow, heal, transform themselves into who they were called to be on this earth, to live a wholehearted life.
I am married to Craig. I have three beautiful adult children: Danielle, Micheal, and Jordan. I also have a black labrador puppy named Jezebel Mae. My most favorite things to do is adventure cycling because it includes everything I love: physical exertion, travel, nature, camping, music, wine, food, coffee, yoga, poetry, and conversation. Of course, all of this is to me a taste of heaven and is best when shared with others.
