The Rest of the Story
A Personal Message
Health and Harmony are not just my passions. They're my life. I have a really big WHY and I want to help you find yours. You can do this. In addition to the official "creds" list above, I’m a Reiki Master, foodie, kick-ass mom, successful entrepreneur, and an energetic stage performer.
Just like you, I am driven by wanting to connect with others and helping them find their power. I bring you MY passion so you can find yours.
I love talking about food, including its role in improving your physical and mental health. We’ll go into the fats, carbs, and proteins, but it’s not just about the food. You’ve also got to nourish your soul, your spirit, your “why am I here” and "why am I doing this?" I am passionate about helping you answer those questions and then figure out how to do it--whether it's for a one-time gig or for high-level performance in every area of your life. When you shine brighter than you’ve ever dreamed, you change the world. That’s what feeds my soul.
Wellness coaching will teach you how to be fully present and happy about yourself in mind, body, and spirit. Then you will be able to reach into the hearts and minds of your audience and give them something that touches them and changes their lives for the better.
If you want to know the backstory, keep on reading. If you are ready to schedule your Performance Power session, contact me and we'll set that up. In that session you will get very clear on what you want to create, what's holding you back, and what's next for you.
I loved to watch my mom. She was an artist, a teacher, and a singer. She encouraged me to be the emcee of my kindergarten play, to sing with different groups in church and school, and she told me, “When you’re nervous, it’s because you care enough to want to do well.” When I was a kid she introduced me to both classical and barbershop music, and we performed in the same a cappella chorus when I was a teenager.
I danced with her in the living room, and I gave her shoulder massages. With her encouragement, I earned degrees in music. My life took an unexpected turn when she died of cancer at only 41 years old.
Being emotionally turned upside down at 19, I felt lost and alone, and I really wanted to understand how someone who was so vibrant and full of life could leave the planet so early. I also wanted to know how to have a different, longer and happier life.
To learn more about holistic health and the connection between our choices and the life we create, I studied spirituality principles and meditation with Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer and Tara Brach. I explored stress management, neuroscience, psychobiology and preventive medicine with Christiane Northrup, Caroline Myss and Louise Hay. Brian Klemmer and Brendon Burchard were my personal and professional leadership development teachers on the language of success. I have been a teacher, trainer, coach, seminar and retreat leader, and best-selling author. And now I'm a mom, giving birth to my daughter at age 48.
I sing, direct, and coach singing ensembles. In tribute to my mom, I created coaching programs that teach and empower performers to create lives of harmony, health, balance, and happiness, regardless of the stage they are on.
If you are looking for a way to boost your confidence and energy and live a life that's balanced and in tune with who you really want to be, please contact me to schedule a Performance Power session.
