About Me

I am a mom of two wonderful kids and a wife of 23 years.  I have a Washington State Teachers Certification and am a Certified Mindfulness Instructor.  Of late, I’ve completed my Mindful Self -Compassion and Mindful Based Stress Reduction Teacher Trainer programs through UCSD Center for Mindfulness. I am a teacher, trainer, facilitator, and public speaker.

It was after I took my first class in Mindfulness and Self-Compassion that I knew this was the life path for me. Not only has the practice changed my life, it's created a space for me to give back in a meaningful way.  

Living a more Mindful and Self-Compassionate life has offered me new ways of living and I've seen the direct impact on those that I have taught and coached.  I look forward to all of the adventures and opportunities that come my way on this Mindful and Slef-Compassionate journey.
