Bio The path that led her to this point
I am the founder and creator of Women for One, a destination for women ready and willing to make life happen.
I travel the world as a speaker, teacher, and facilitator of workshops, helping others tap into lives powered by truth.
It seems simple, doesn’t it — telling the truth?
Well, in a world ready to judge at the bat of an eyelash, it’s sometimes a lot easier to create stories that keep us safe. But safety keeps us stalled while the truth makes us nimble, powerful, and creative.
My dedication to truth telling helps curious people in search of more to find inspiration in themselves and then share their stories with the world.
Why? Because through sharing, we find the inspiration, community, and can create action that makes a brighter tomorrow.
With over 20 years experience as a nonprofit and small business consultant, I am excited to be one of the voices behind Women for One, empowering generations of women around the world to build relationships, community, and the support structure they need to achieve their wildest dreams.
I find my own daily inspiration in spending time with my husband and children in our home outside of Seattle and I am currently writing my first book.
Q&A Insider advice & tips
What's been your greatest achievement to date?
Becoming a mother to three beautiful human beings, a stepmother to three more beautiful people and finding my partner for life.
What's been your biggest challenge so far?
The biggest challenge so far in my life is to get out of my own way and SHINE. I am 46 years old and I hope to courageously step off that cliff each day, be vulnerable and shine for my own personal empowerment and to support others in their process.
Best lesson you've learned along the way?
The best lesson I have learned along the way in life is to get in touch with my intuition and my gut and to TRUST it each and every time. If I get silent and clear enough, I always know what I need to do to move forward.
A website, book or resource that has helped you in your business or inspired you and why?
My most loved business resource is my journal. Committing to writing about thoughts, ideas and strategies creates more ideas and strategies for my future plans. I also love a great poem by Rumi, Mary Oliver or Hafiz.
Which person or brand do you most admire and why?
I admire so many different people from Paulo Coelho to Oprah to Arianna Huffington... the list is endless. But I believe that each of us needs to be careful about the sense of admiration.
I admire, but I do not put anyone on a pedestal. We are all such unique individuals with our own gift for the world.
What advice would you give someone starting an independent business in your industry?
Trust your gut. Be discerning about who you associate with and give your energy to. Get clarity about what your overall goals and outcomes will be.
