Dont worry about what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive and do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Are you really living your life right now, or just doing the laundry and paying bills until you die?

Do you feel that your life is deeply meaningful and that you are using your gifts to make an impact on the world?

Or do you feel that something is missing?

Somehow you got lost along the way, weighed down by daily pressures and stresses so that you lost sight of the passions and dreams you had when you were younger. 

Or maybe your life has been turned upside down by disappointment, grief, or a devastating loss.

And now… you are just going through the motions, doing what needs to be done.

But your heart’s not in it.

If any of this describes you, I know how you feel.

In my early 30’s, I suffered several devastating losses, including the deaths of both parents, a chronic illness, and the death of a cherished friend.

I also languished for too many years in an energy-draining job with a decent salary and excellent health and retirement benefits. Still recovering from grief and illness, I tried to make the best of it, leaving precious little time for the activities I really loved and the passions that fueled my spirit.

I longed to escape the cage of conformity that kept me trapped in my small, safe but miserable life, but it felt too risky. I had no long-term vision and was stuck in my fears.  

The wild and adventurous spirit of the brave young woman I had been in my 20’s seemed to have died right along with my loved ones, and I didn’t like the cautious, anxious person I had become and the small, safe life I was living.

Eventually, the overwhelming stress of merely existing in a life I did not love any more took a major toll my health and my happiness.

But the voice of my inner intuition and the gentle nudges of the loving Creator kept calling out louder and louder for me to make some big changes and be willing to take a risk again, until I could ignore it no longer.  I finally listened and then answered the call.

It was time take a leap!


“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.”
                                                                                                            ~Helen Keller

With spiritual and emotional armor newly forged by fire, I knew it was possible either to slay my dragons, or train them so that I could ride them.  Instead of listening to the inner voices of fear and confusion, I finally found the tools I needed to overcome adversity and live a creative, courageous and compassionate life.

On a wing and a prayer, I took a huge leap of faith into a new life as an adoptive mom and a new adventure as an entrepreneur.  

These two major life transformations were the most thrilling, challenging, and deeply fulfilling decisions I have ever made!   I am so happy and grateful that I found a way to follow my heart’s song again in my life and career;  I just wish that I had done it sooner.

What is Life Coaching, and how is it different from Therapy?

Counseling or therapy typically focuses on resolving past trauma or emotional difficulties.

Coaching focuses on who you are now and who you are becoming as you develop positive solutions and strategies to overcome obstacles and reach your highest calling, dreams, and desires.

Working with a coach is like holding a mirror up to your heart and soul to reflect back to you what you need to know as you make mindful decisions and move forward in your life and career.  

A Life Design Coach will ask questions to prompt you where you may need to explore thought patterns, behaviors, and habits that are getting in the way of your goals and dreams. As your Coach, I will provide a space and expert guidance to help you create an amazing new life vision and then help you design an action plan to make your best life a reality.

I launched WingBuilder to inspire other heart-centered dreamers like me who are ready to break free from their cages of conformity so that they can launch lives full of creativity, courage, and compassion.    Building strong wings together, we rise above adversity and transform trauma, grief, pain, and stress into growth, purpose, passion, and success!

The name “WingBuilder” was inspired by one of my favorite quotes from the late author, Ray Bradbury, who said this:

“If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair.
We’d never have a friendship.
We’d never go into business, because we’d be cynical.
Well, that’s nonsense.
You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time
and build your wings on the way down.”

We all have our own authentic calling — a unique song that must be sung to fulfill our purpose and mission while still here on Earth. 

But not everyone listens to the call.   Some people will continue to live quiet lives of desperation, letting the daily stresses of life strangle their hearts into submission to the status quo — while others will find strength to live the big, brave, and brilliant lives they were born to live. 

What kind of life do you want to live?  

“Don’t die with your music still inside you.
Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find
what passion stirs your soul.
Listen to that inner voice, and don’t get to the end of your life
and say, ‘What if my whole life has been wrong?”

                                                                                                            ~Dr. Wayne Dyer

It’s never too late to be the person that you were born to be, but if you dont get started now, you may never have the chance again.

It’s time to break free, build your wings of courage and creativity, take a leap of faith into your next adventure.

The world is waiting to hear your song.
