I started my first business at age 23, and became an award-winning book publisher within five years. I was living penthouse-large in Southern California, when my “destiny tap” brought me face to face with my ego at 31, leaving me broke, divorced and diagnosed with what doctors call an “incurable” disease. Through surrender to the inner, deeper voice, I went from wealth to waitress and dove into my Act Two with painting, acting, primal scream, re-birthing, re-parenting, and re-connecting to my first love, The Angels. With new eyes and heart open, I began following my “purpose of service” and trained to become an Emotional Trauma and Personal Empowerment Therapist and led Spiritual and Sexual Recovery Workshops for Women for six years.
I was a leader in the direct sales industry before launching FEED333 in 2006, an online fundraising campaign which fed 1.2million children in the USA in 30 days. The following year I partnered with Feed the Children, Salvation Army and the NBA Players Assn to launch the three largest multi-city food distributions in US history, then co-founded a multi-million dollar direct sales company which brought together over 6000 Social Entrepreneurs and Transformational Leaders. As Chief Humanitarian Officer, I directed $1.8 million in humanitarian aid to NGO’s in many countries, and began taking groups to on service trips to witness their impact. For nearly a decade, I have been crafting and leading a unique form of “Adventure-Contribution-Travel” that has transformed lives and businesses for over 1100 participants, and that has served more than 30,000 families and educators with clean water, education and empowerment in eight countries.
I am also the innovator of INSPIRE™, a 2-Day Wisdom Share event held during select signature travel events, produced now on three continents, which provides participants the opportunity to be filmed speaking to an international audience. INSPIRE™ programs have been designed for over 400 educators, principals, and government officials in an African post-war nation; for the student and faculty body at a top South American University, and for business and NGO administrators, managers, volunteers in New Zealand.
I was living my dream in 2014 training post-war Teachers on success and leadership principles in Liberia West Africa, when the Ebola outbreak occurred, and was faced with the heart-wrenching decision to leave my Beloved Man behind, and flee to safety with our baby (our 8 year old Cairn Terrier, Barnaby!). We now reside in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador.
In 2015 I co-founded The Waterbearers (www.thewaterbearers.org ) which is a movement inspiring Women around the globe who have access to clean water to get it to those who do not. The first 30 day campaign funded over 3200 clean water systems that will get clean water access to over 320,000 people for ten years. This movement for women, water and wisdom, along with my professional passion to continue inspiring social entrepreneurism through Legacy Life travel gives me great fulfillment in the ways I can serve through my talents and resources.
My personal passions? Walking along the river and dancing in the kitchen with my Ronnie and Barnaby, painting, singing Karaoke, my daily “yogaahh” practice, and completing my next books, “Open Your Mouth and Say AAHH” and “Lust, Love and Miracles: One Couple’ Journey of Awakening Across Four Continents .

I am a strategic business partner, and communications and operations specialist, working with individuals and businesses for over 30 years. I have built multi- million dollar organizations in diverse fields as a principal and as an integral business development consultant. I have been instrumental to the success of neurology practices, a holistic dental office, therapy practices, a company selling back support systems via brick- and mortar and on- line stores, a multi- million dollar real estate empire and a Jordanian NGO for children and their families who were disenfranchised due to the associated stigma of the diagnosis.
My methods of working with teams or individuals are innovative, integrative and help my clients define current challenges and their root causes, to co- create a living map of success. A dynamic collaboration model is created to assess and understand one’s development needs, challenge current constraints and explore, determine and expand your possibilities. Using guided reflection and introspection practices we create dynamic foundations for reaching goals, develop an arsenal of tools for sustaining success and craft systems that are fluid enough to support present needs and future growth. I believe that health is the moving toward and the fulfillment of having fun and consciously creating success. My joy is to re-ignite one’s vision to triumph, and to help you to touch and be touched by your own personal greatness.
