“I love co-working at the Candy Factory!! It’s an energetic environment filled with entrepreneurs of all ages who generously share what they have to give. Even if it’s just time for a cup of coffee on a given day. The more I’m here the more I want to be here. My workshop attendees and Mastermind Group members also love the welcoming environment of The Candy Factory where the conference rooms are well equipped, the coffee is great and the parking is free!”

I LOVE TO GO DEEP. THE SUPERFICIAL BORES ME.

Today I’m a woman who has experienced immeasurable joy and also come through the fire. I trust my intuition and do what feels right to me… in my body. I’m less concerned with what others think. Sometimes I change my mind. I can listen. I’m a mother and a grandmother, I’m a sister and a friend. I’m a mentor. I’m a Martha Beck Institute trained life coach. I’m a consultant with 20 years of experience. I’ve spent a long career, working with organizations, businesses and advocating for causes I believe in.

I’ve raised a lot of money. I’ve marched in Washington a few times.I’m an entrepreneur, who has been mostly self-employed over the last 20 years. I know what it is to sell to eat. I’ve had to focus on the big picture and the details.

I can be impatient. I’m a woman who has spent a lifetime focused on creating connections first in my family which extended to a large circle of friends and then into the community. Fostering connections is really all I’ve ever wanted to do.
