My sincere desire is to assist others in designing and living the life they want to live...both professionally and personally. Like you, I have had numerous peaks and valleys in my life. After a breast cancer diagnosis in 2004, followed by two surgeries and radiation, I realized I had received a gift. I was cancer-free and I had come face to face with the fact that I must take care of myself. As the CEO of a nonprofit that helped children deal with death and divorce, I had poured all my energy into helping our clients and had forgotten about ME. As I contemplated life ahead of me, I felt God leading me to utilize my expertise in communication, counseling, and leadership to help others design their lives for success in all areas. Most of us devote too much energy toward career success and leave personal success - life success - by the wayside. I am pleased that my efforts have impacted the lives of hundreds of individuals who want to make positive changes!

I encourage you – right now – to take a look at all aspects of your life.

  • What areas need more focus?
  • Which areas need less focus?
  • Are you truly living by your priorities?
  • Are you taking care of YOU?

Don’t wait as long as I did. Begin to live every day fully. TODAY.

Here’s to Success – Life Success!!
