I thought we’d take a different approach to this part of the website. Usually this is the place I’d share my bio. I’d probably list all of my professional accomplishments in order to prove that I’m qualified to offer you advice on life. (Don’t worry. I am a professionally trained life coach, and I’ll share all the bio details at the bottom of the page).
Here’s the thing. I want to know you. I want us to be friends.
That means you should have the opportunity to know me – the real me. Not just the packaged formal bio version of me. So I thought I’d share my story with some personal photos.
I’m 46 years old. I’m happily married, and have been with my husband, Jay, for 18 years.
I hit the jackpot when I married Jay, because he gave me four amazing bonus kids Joey, Emma, Becca and Megan. Then Joey married Lauren, and they gave us Payton and Harlow.
I'm A Grandma
That’s right – I’m a grandma! I’m a gaga one too. Payton and Harlow call me Mimi. To say I’m in love would be the understatement of the century.
Allow me to introduce the 4 legged love of my life. He’s my 10 year old lab. He’s a dumpster diver. We have trouble keeping him out of food – as his girth would indicate. He is 100 pounds of wagging love.
I live in Silicon Valley between the beautiful city of San Francisco and the cozy town of Los Gatos. I’m also very lucky to have a ranch in the state of Washington. This is a shot of me at the ranch.
I love to travel, and I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of the world. No matter where I go, nothing gets me like the beach. It calms and soothes and inspires me all at the same time.
I’m a health nut. Green juice, lemon water, and heavy veggies are my go-to favs. I’m a fan of farm-to-table. Where my food comes from matters to me. I also have a highly cultivated sweet tooth. I love chocolate, and jolly ranchers and gummy bears typically don’t survive around me.
I like to cook and garden. I love home décor. I have a book addiction – almost always of the self-help variety. I love movies and television. I adore The Real Housewives (all of them), The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones. I’ve been known to Netflix binge, and I’m a little OCD. I’m also a bit of a rebel. I’ve never met a rule I liked.
It took me a long time to establish a self-connection practice that worked for me. I’ve got a good routine worked out now. I journal, meditate, work out, walk my dog in nature, and take a long hot bath pretty much every day.
