I am a freelance writer, teacher, and speaker. My writing style and content is informed by my 15-plus years of spiritual study and practice, including yoga and alternative health. I’ve been called an “Eloquent Dragon Slayer,” and a “Deep-Thought Translator.” But however my work is perceived, my goal in writing is to draw awareness to new ideas, or offer new ways of approaching old ideas. I live in Minneapolis with my husband and two daughters.

Life Mantra: Happiness is the FREEDOM to creatively, wholly and consciously engage in the world, unapologetically loving myself and others without waiting for permission, an invitation, a reason, an excuse, a filter, a credential, a holiday, an office space, a title,a classroom or a platform.

I Write:


-with curiosity, compassion and creativity.

-where the real world intersects the spiritual world.

-to create dialogue and discussion.

-to challenge and inspire.

-to share laughter at our humanness.

-to be of benefit in this world.
