creator connector collaborator
After years of research on the topic of leaving, I have come to appreciate the bends in my story, the same way I accept the curvature of scoliosis in my spine. I am uniquely imperfect.
My many episodes of leaving interrupted a plan, sent me sideways, backwards and forwards. They crafted my resilience and spirit. Gifted me lessons on who I was and what I valued. Offered an avenue for what was next and an invitation for personal growth.
The work to liberate myself from the pressure of what life was supposed to look like, shifted how I viewed the power of choice. The difference in owning a decision rather than allowing myself to go with the flow of circumstances and things I tolerated.
I am a woman in mid-life embracing the freedom of coming home to me
I am a writer and curator of stories about leaving and being left
I am a spouse, a mother of two sons, and a lover of nature, dogs, and humans
I welcome opportunities to blend my business experience and my gifts for ideation, connection and collaboration
I speak on topics like: leaving relationships, career transition, getting unstuck, the power of asking for what you want, letting go of the fear of hearing "no" and embracing the joy of not knowing
I support women through transition and in times of uncertainty
the power of grace
gifted to ourselves
a hug around the waist
