I WANT TO BE LIGHT AND FROLICSOME.
I WANT TO BE IMPROBABLE BEAUTIFUL AND AFRAID OF NOTHING,
AS THOUGH I HAD WINGS.”

I help people and enterprises reinvent how they show up in the world…and how they live.
Reinventing yourself isn’t just something to do when the chips are down or as part of a contingency plan. It’s a gift we have of being human. We are all evolving, all choosing moment by moment whether to step into what’s next, and it makes a huge difference to have a trusted guide when you know it’s time to kick things up a notch or two.
As for myself, I’ve earned my reputation as a serial reinventionist and general artist of life:
When I was all of 20 years old, I jumped on a chance to relocate to Dubai for a job , and I lived there for 3 wild, life-changing years, working as a journalist before I even got my degree.
I’ve had my share of love affairs (and marriages) with their beginnings and endings—and I’ve morphed heartache and loss into wisdom, experience and growth. Oh, and I’m blessed with Big Love in my life now! (More on that below.)
Back when I was a newly divorced mom with 3- and 6-year-old girls, I managed to not only build a successful career as a freelance journalist, but also purchase my first home as a single person.
I’ve twice resigned from plum corporate positions—as an Editorial Director, and later as a PR exec of a global company—to go out on my own when my own Soul’s desires could no longer be ignored.
I’ve been through personal bankruptcy and within one year started my own successful six-figure business.
I was an award-winning journalist…but burned out—and I landed a dream job as head of Hallmark’s internal think tank and innovation lab, The Collaboratory.
I’ve lived through the pain of disappointment and failure, and I know that sad and lonely space of wow, now I’ll just have to make the best of things…and then triumphed. Time after time.
Okay, real talk just between us: It’s no accident that this not-a-runway-model woman whose odometer has rolled past 60 has a rock-solid supportive (and younger!) man — as of recently, my husband! — by her side whose heart is as gorgeous as he is.
Also: He has been known to do things like whisk me off to Havana, Cuba, to celebrate my birthday. He takes pride in his ability to surprise and delight, which is beyond awesome. (See 📷 on this page!)
For years, I’ve studied how real Women of Moxie keep creating, keep dancing, keep showing up as their most powerful, radiant, beautiful selves — and I’ve put it into practice.
A few credentials: I’ve led personal development seminars to thousands, managed an innovation think tank and hosted creativity workshops at Hallmark, and am a certified Neurotransformational Coach. I’m also an artist, a poet and a woman whose calling is people experience beauty.
As for my work with women stepping into new, true expressions of who they are now, it’s some of the most fulfilling work of my life. It’s my honor to be chosen as a trusted guide by so many extraordinary people.
