As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.
I have had the privilege of being part of leadership teams for several decades and it was on one of those leadership teams where I first encountered in-person training from John Maxwell. Also, being a voracious reader and learner I have benefited over the years from Dr. Maxwell, albeit from a distance, by reading his books and taking his online classes. I appreciate his humble leadership exemplified in his training and writing and that we are both coming from a Christian values-based look on life.
I firmly believe in continuing education and as I was seeking to improve my coaching and speaking abilities, I discovered I could be trained and certified with the Maxwell Leadership Team. Immediately, because I trust John, I jumped in and began a new season!
I have owned my own Practice for well over a decade through which I have coached women, spoken for and coordinated events and written as an author. Perhaps what sets me apart is not only am I certified through the Maxwell Leadership Team but I am a certified Professional Life Coach, certified Christian Life Coach and I am also a Master Certified Christian Life Coach through PCCCA.org. I hold additional certifications in Stress Relief Coaching, Wellness Coaching and Joy Restoration / Grief Coaching. For me coaching a woman as a whole person and working toward wellness and health in every area of their lives and then seeing progress made one-step-at-a- time is a privilege and honor. For the client, coaching with me focuses on courage to face one’s future and life- battles with faith, hope, and optimism with the goal of transformational change.
At the end of the day my hope is that in the process of coaching, in working with me as a teacher, trainer or speaker, or in reading my thoughts as a writer my goal is to give glory to the Lord. It is my absolute objective to live and work and Practice from a Christian world-view and value-based perspective.
Over the years, my expertise has been honored with notable accolades and a variety of experiences. Along with my Coaching and Speaking education and certifications I have a Bachelor of Science in Home Economics Education (Teaching degree) from Colorado State University. I was on staff as one of the past instructors for coaches Professional Christian Coaching and Counseling Academy.

I was a speaker for the National Conference for PCCCA, for the Montana state-wide Pro-Life Day and a workshop speaker for the women attending a Joni and Friends International Disability Ministry Family Retreat in California. I have been a speaker for weekend leadership conferences for individual networking businesses across the U.S.. I had the honor of being in a featured story as a cancer battler and friend on a www.JoniandFriends.org radio program. Women’s Ministry events at churches has been a focus for me and I have spoken for, hosted and coordinated a number of Weekend or One Day Retreats. I have hosted numerous Bible studies over decades in my community, church and our sons’ private Christian School.

My perspectives and activities have been featured in our local newspaper and I have participated in several interviews on Southern California television news programs on special interest topics.
In the community I served on the School Board of Education at Hillcrest Christian School, was PFA President as a Mom and I am an active member of our church and have been on the Women’s Ministry Team there for over a decade.
I grew up on a Cattle Ranch in Colorado / New Mexico, where I was the Colorado Hereford Queen representing our breed at many events in the state of Colorado. I was involved on a National and collegiate level with the 4-H Program for years. And finally … as a side note … I am a 3 times cancer survivor and in addition to speaking, writing and teaching on this subject I also participated in 2 separate weekend Avon Walks of 39.3 miles per walk with a total of over 3000 miles of training and preparing.
