I have been facilitating SoulCollage® workshops since 2004 in a variety of settings and with a variety of people. I am a Soul Tender, which means that I use my skills as a life coach, a creative, a teacher, a facilitator, a writer, and a mentor to tend to your soul. I am here to be in partnership with you as you look at ways to meet and engage with your Soul self.

I believe that every one of us is on the planet to do more than just survive. As cliché as it sounds, I believe we’re here to thrive. I believe it is our moral imperative to be the best versions of ourselves. Our aim is not to be perfect, our aim is to embrace our whole selves, flaws and all, and to be authentically, genuinely, and truly ourselves.

I am a professional speaker, typically giving inspiring speeches about overcoming adveristy and living our best lives. You can watch my TEDx talk, Forgiving the Unforgivable, here.

I am a published author with essays in five anthologies and my memoir, A Leg to Stand On, An Amputee's Walk Into Motherhood. My writing practice has been very supportive of my SoulCollage® practice, allowing me to explore my cards and reading more deeply.

I have spent twenty years in non-profit managment, always supporting people who are marginalized in our society  - from people with physical, developemental, and mental disabilities, poeple with AIDS, at-risk youth, to grieving families.

Trainer Statement

I love SoulCollage®!

Since leaving the church I was raised in, SoulCollage® has been the one practice that has held me gently and powerfully, continued to speak to me, and given me deep insights into my own nature.

I love sharing SoulCollage®!

I love that moment when someone reads their cards and gasps. It always happens - the incredible breath-taking moment when someone sees a part of themselves that was preciously hidden by thoughts, words, and shoulds. This is the beauty and magic of SoulCollage®, when we are able to look at a piece of ourselves, tie that piece into the totality of who we are - without shame. SoulCollage® has increased my own self-compassion.
