I started working with small business owners in 1997, while still in New Zealand, and I realized that this was my passion, helping highly impassioned entrepreneurs to stretch and grow past the obstacles that keep them from their success!
I help people to find the path to marketing, leveraging and monetizing their business.
My special gift is my ability to really connect with your deep wisdom and to help you grow your business from that place. I see things that you might not see in yourself.
I love creating processes and tools that make it easy to for you understand how to translate your passion into a profitable business.
My mission is to help women entrepreneurs to stand in their power, be the leaders they are meant to be and then make change in the world!
I discovered that running a business can be fun, creative, and gratifying!
I didn’t want to give up the adventurist, wild women part of myself so I have figured out a way to integrate it and be more authentic as a result.
My masters is in counseling and I was a family therapist for 20 years, however I’ve also owned five start-up businesses, including a pottery business, health food venture, a bicycle shop and a publishing company.
I shifted from a family therapy practice into facilitating leadership training and team building seminars for organizations and then found my home with solopereneurs, which is where my heart is.
After living in New Zealand for 12 years, I now live in Portland, Oregon with my husband. We are dual citizens and although my family roots are here in Oregon, New Zealand is my soul home and my community there helped me to become who I am today.
