My Story

“Still waters run deep,” my father once told me.

It may sound cliche at first, but his simple statement evokes the truth of my life’s calling.

Like water, which always seeks it’s deepest level, what draws me into this work is my passion to integrate mind, spirit and soul with the body.

As a nurse, health educator, physical trainer and Ph.D health scientist. I know how vital exercise and good nutrition are to radiant wellness of body and mind. That is why I conducted research showing the effectiveness of mind/body integrated approaches to exercise. (You can read about it here.)

In my world, psyche (the Greek word for “soul”) reigns supreme. Many of the teachers and mentors that have graced my life first appeared in my dreams. My path has been divinely directed. I now use my intuition to channel images and messages from your guides to help you connect with that same source in my Divine Your Life Sessions.

Through my practice of ages-old healing modalities such as Ayurveda, and the indigenous medicine taught to me while living with a tribe of women in the rainforests of Costa Rica, it became crystal clear that the marriage of the body and soul is the key to profound healing in our lives. When we pay attention to the body’s wisdom AND take action, miraculous changes can occur.

I’ve taught hundreds of women how to nurture their body temple in my keynote addresses, workshops, dance classes and worldwide retreats.

A little backstory …

At 30 years old I was one of those women who ‘had it all together.’ Perfect house, perfect neighborhood, perfect job, perfect health, perfect marriage, perfect pregnancy. And, in a 3 month period I lost it all. It took four years to emerge from the wreckage of that half-lived life and since then I’ve dedicated myself to improving the lives of other women through intuitive coaching, body movement and dance courses and workshops.

I travel worldwide to share my knowledge with women of all ages at retreats and workshops.

Ultimately, I’m here to teach you to come back home to yourself. Come back to your center. Because if you don’t pay attention to what’s going on with you, that becomes the matter with you.

Like the deepest underground spring, you have access to your own source.

Find that source and stay connected.
