For 28 years ... I have been in business as a Certified Massage Therapist, in Brainerd, Minnesota. Throughout those years, I have felt the nudging of God/Spirit in various ways to help my clients. I learned long ago, it's best to do and go where God is directing me, as His persistence is stronger than my hesitations and dragging feet! I continue to find joy in providing massage for my clients, and have added Gatherings & Speaking Engagements, to my business/life adventure! It's another wonderful way of connecting with most amazing women.
I Am ... A Speaker ... A Writer
I believe sharing stories is a powerful way to connect hearts.
Life teaches us, wisdom follows. Trust and faith help us to be brave. I'm taking a breath and sharing my story, beginning as a child of 5 and hearing Whispers, through the tragic death and blessing of my little sister, marriage, divorce and experiencing deep depression, a shift from religion to Spirituality, single parenting, serving in local government, working with my amazing clients, helping my folks cross over within 3 weeks of each other, to experiencing a heart attack, getting engaged and then NOT!
And realizing ... my life purpose is BEing available to others. BEing vulnerable and BEing compassionate. Listening, and BEing present to others and the continued Whispers of Spirit and presence of God. All the while, BEing ME, unique in all the joy, muck, tears, fears and courage I breathe through, while living the gift of today.
I share my story for a simple reason ... Our difficulties can create strength and understanding with others experiencing some of the same things. We do not have to walk our path in life alone. We are in this world together to share and create understanding and love. I'm open and willing to meet with groups who are interested in the sharing of my story - and will provide more detail and focus on particular topics/life experiences, as they pertain to specific issues you may be dealing with. Contact me for availability and rates.
I also enjoy writing ... you may find my Blog HERE!

I Am a Facilitator for Women's Gatherings ... Your place or mine!
I'm excited to share these Gatherings and classes with you, as together we enrich our lives, delighting in simply Being who we are! How fortunate, Crossing Arts was instrumental in my beginning, as they offered to share their Art Gallery for my first Gatherings. Be sure to check them out - becoming a member is a great way to support the arts in our community, besides being connected with amazing people! Because the circle of women has grown, Marty Gegner, Lori Elwood and I have created The Gathering Place at Franklin Arts Center. We are thrilled to hold a space for the ever growing/spiritually glowing/gorgeous women who cross the threshold! I've had Gatherings for numerous women over the years. We have come together for Drumming Circles, Spiritual Ceremonies for Forgiveness & Renewal, and workshops on Healing through Divorce/Relationship Loss, Chakra's, Meditation, and listening to your Angels & Guides ... besides my topics above as a Speaker! Contact me for a Gathering.
I Am a Listener/Guide ...
Listening is a necessary part of conversation, truth-telling, building relationships and actually honoring the person speaking - SEEING you, HEARING you, VALIDATING you. You are the author of your story, adding and deleting characters in your life, choosing each path in life, editing as you see fit .... if you'd like me to be a part of your story, contact me!
