WHAT’S THE POINT?
A life worth living is a life worth sharing
For recreation and play, I love sports, adventure and travel. Summiting both Africa’s 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 May 2016 I am embarking on a 500-mile pilgrimage from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France to Santiago, Spain called the Camino Frances. A little faster in pace, my love of motorbikes, endurance sports and philanthropy led me to co-createthe “Answer for Cancer Tour” during which I rode my CBR600 sport bike 42 states and 7 provinces in 55 days, helped raise $500K for the cause and spread the message of cancer prevention strategies through events, print media and live radio and TV interviews. Both my parents are survivors, so it was a cause close to my heart
Before relocating to Phoenix in 2010, I was a multiple Georgie Award winning Realtor in my hometown of Vancouver, BC. “Best Salesperson, New Home Construction” was the most coveted sales award in the industry, so I was thrilled to be recognized. After moving to Phoenix, I had to reinvent myself and discovered mobile phone app development, children’s book publishing and have recentlyventured into the world of non-fiction bywriting my first adult book, Safe Souls: Transforming Relationships and Businesses Through the Power of Kind, Clean and Clear Communication, due out in January 2016. It expands on the content from my Safe Souls business workshops and my “Editor’s Choice Award” contribution to Jack Canfield’s latest book, The Soul of Success: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs & Professionals Reveal Their Core Strategies for Getting to the Heart of Health, Wealth & Success.When I’m not working or playing, I give back by supporting organizations that advance prosperity and healing. I co-founded the “We’re Making it Our Beeswax” program in Zambia where we taught village women how to make and sell beeswax candles. This enabled them to provide for themselves and their families. Closer to home, my love of animals and people led me to volunteer atHunkapi Horses, where I assisted ADD/ADHD kids and taught them about riding and horsemanship.Horseback riding 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 sweet 14-year-old Whippet, Parker, and our little 3-year-old rescue Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, Milo.
