My greatest joy is engaging in expansive experiences and inquiry that free the spirit and give new life to the soul. My earliest childhood memories were of looking up at the moon, awe-struck by nature and being in constant wonder of what else could be possible.  Growing up in a family of artists, I always thought the creative gene had skipped me, until I found an art form is creating and holding space with essential ingredients for magic and deep transformation. 

At age 21 I was intensely shy and could never quite find my place in world.  It was then I was introduced to the world of personal growth and transformation and it lit a fire within me.  For the past 28 years, albeit terrifying, I've had the absolute privilege of being a staff member, coach, leadership trainer, workshop leader and program designer for visionary organizations dedicated to bringing forth a new paradigm for humanity.    

There's an expression, "You teach what you most need to learn."  This has and is certainly true for me.  I'm constantly (and one could say obsessively) seeking, learning, observing, researching, inquiring, discussing and sharing what causes stress, pain, limitations and suffering and what sets the human mind, body and soul free to live full out with joy, connection and abundance.  

I believe my purpose is to be and share love and that expression has taken many forms.  As a Workshop Leader trained through Landmark Education, Alison Armstrong/PAX Programs, The Center for Equus Coaching as well as in The Work of Byron Katie, I've led over 200 live, in-person workshops, 10 years of my own retreats and countless online programs and 1:1 coaching sessions.  And while all of these trainings and modalities serve my offerings, I lead from an intuitive place and weave together whatever is called for in the moment.  Friends often refer to me as a modern day Mary Poppins with my bag of tools, perspective shifts and metaphor; a reference I hold fondly, as there is nothing better than sharing something that has someone else feel lighter, brighter and present to love and possibility.    

Tuning into the shift in consciousness upon us and with a vision of people being empowered to honor themselves, discover and align with their inner-knowing and lead joyful, soul-fueled lives, I founded Shine Life Design, LLC in 2013 and offer retreats, online programs and life design, couples and Equus coaching.

I live in the mountains of Utah with my husband, Seth, and our two teenage sons.  As "unschoolers" we enjoy adventures, traveling and learning in life together - honoring the sovereign, imaginative being in each of us.

One of my favorite quotes and an inspiration for Shine Life Design is by Martha Graham...

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.”

Every topic, inquiry, program and retreat is designed to keep the channel open and Shine!

I've found one of the most essential ingredients in keeping our dreams alive is community. When we surrounded ourselves with people who support our vision, see who we are and engage in inspiring and expanding conversations, we thrive.

As the Shine courses and retreats have come to life, so has the beautiful community of forward thinking, open-hearted, growth-oriented, kind humans. If this is you, I invite you to come play!
