Before relocating to Phoenix in 2011, I was a multiple award-winning realtor in my hometown of Vancouver, B.C. Since I could hardly find my own way around Phoenix as a newbie resident, I left real estate behind and discovered the creative joy of mobile phone app development, children’s book publishing, adult non-fiction writing, and addiction recovery coaching.

My apps include Stretch Guru and Prevent Cancer: 365 Daily Tips and my kid’s books are Bumbles…finds her way home! and Bumbles…saves Naipoki! Both are available on Amazon and are philanthropic endeavors supporting two causes in Africa we champion. My first adult non-fiction book Safe Souls: Transforming Relationships & Businesses Through the Power of Kind, Clean & Clear Communication, (Aug 2016) expands on the content of my Safe Souls business workshops and my contribution to Jack Canfield’s book The Soul of Success. My latest book, Rather than Rehab: Quit Bulimia & Upgrade Your Life, (eBook Feb 2017 and print book Feb 2018) pairs with my addiction recovery coaching training to help men and women overcome their eating disorders and body image issues so they can start living their most upgraded lives.

For recreation and play, I love movement, adventure, and travel. Summiting Africa’s two highest peaks—Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya—were dreams I realized in 2008 and 2011 respectively. I’ve also trekked to Mount Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas, through the Salcantay and Inca Trails in the Andes, and in the summer of 2018, I will be embarking on a 600-mile pilgrimage from Irun to Finisterre, Spain, called the Camino Norte.

A little closer to home, I’ve had the excitement and pleasure of riding all 48 states and 10 Canadian provinces on my CBR600 sportbike. Fun! Horseback riding, yoga, and alpine skiing are also high on my favorite-things-to-do list.

I’m excited about the next half of life and endeavor to create an epic journey of spiritual, emotional, entrepreneurial, and physical discovery. I live with my husband, Ken, and our hilarious two rescue mutts Milo and Tessa. Life is good.
