About Me

As Founder & CEO of my own business, I specialize in helping midlife career women who want to achieve a more sacred kind of success. For these women, the desire to play a bigger game requires a strong profit motive, but making money is no longer the goal. The goal is a search for significance, a journey to uncover the wealth of the self, a rite of passage to their highest purpose and to a life that’s as unique as their fingerprint.

After 20 successful years in the corporate and non-profit world, I experienced my own turning point. Today I mentor women through their unique turning points and help them cultivate extraordinary lives of passion and purpose in midlife and beyond. 

I’m the author of more than two dozen books and audio programs including the books [R]evolution: A Soulful and Practical Guide to Creating the Life You Want and From Breakdown to Breakthrough: Seven Women Executives Share Their Turning Points. I’m a co-author of “The Gratitude Project: Celebrating Moms & Motherhood“, and have provided expert commentary to ForbesWoman, WE Magazine for Women, 85 Broads, Expert Insights, and other publications that focus on business women and women in midlife. I was named 1 of 101 Women Bloggers to Watch by WE Magazine for Women, was named a Fabulous 50 Top Blogger by Boomer Diva Nation, and winner of the Best Coaching Blogs by the School of Coaching Mastery.

And just in case you might be wondering who I am when I take off my business hat: I’ve had a life-long love affair with the great outdoors. I hike, bike, and at one time dabbled in mountain climbing (I climbed Africa’s 19,341 foot-high Mt. Kilimanjaro when I turned 41). Traveling is probably my next greatest passion besides spending time with my six grandchildren, and I enjoy reading, gardening, and watching anything with Titus Welliver in it.

So many women have reached, or are in the process of reaching, a major transition in their lives. Whether it be career, relationships, things you’ve tolerated for way too long, or a deep tug at your soul that’s pulling you toward something new and different, you may find it difficult to know where to start – or how to stay with it when it becomes challenging. This is why I wrote [R]evolution and why I created it in a workbook format so that you can take notes in it, write in the margins, do the exercises within the book or doodle to your heart’s content. It’s waiting for you. [R]evolution: A Soulful and Practical Guide to Creating the Life You Want.
