I’m an internationally certified life coach and bestselling author...
...whose career has been built on my desire to engage in meaningful conversations and conscious relationships.
To that end, I’ve been a news reporter, magazine editor, and personal essayist. I’ve written about marriage, parenting, mindful eating, rescuing endangered species, and am currently writing a book about conscious sexuality.
In my earlier days, I was a bookstore clerk and bartender, an advocate for women prisoners and a counselor for “runaway girls” and “unwed mothers.” I taught life skills to developmentally disabled adults, and offered emotional support to mentally ill patients in a lock-up treatment facility.
A commitment to living authentically has guided me through the lifelong work of keeping my marriage and family and personal relationships healthy, honest, and loving. I walk my talk as a writer, coach, wife, friend and mother—knowing the deep work is ours to do, but the benefits are for everyone.
I’m a girl from the East who became a woman of the West. Seattle has been my beloved home since 1986.
