Although I literally help put people back together working 23 years in emergency rooms across the country, my passion has always been to help people breakthrough before they break down. I have been involved in the health and fitness field for over 30 years as a life coach and fitness instructor teaching everything from kick-boxing and weight management to risk factor modification and cycling.
When I left the emergency room, I wanted to help healthcare providers, especially nurses take care of themselves. My first book, STOP Living Life Like an EMERGENCY! Rescue Strategies for the Overworked and Overwhelmed, was a huge success and led me to speak to thousands of healthcare providers at national conferences, association meetings, and individual hospitals.
Being a recovering adrenaline junkie myself, I found the practice of mindfulness and yoga to be healing for me during a painful divorce and wanted to bring it to healthcare. I wrote my second book, 30 Days to Grace; A Daily Practice to Achieve Your Ultimate Goals and created the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge.
Today, as a speaker, author, life coach, nurse, and yoga teacher, I bring resilience skills to healthcare organizations in a variety of ways with The Resilience Academy, 30 day mindfulness challenges, national and international leadership and mindfulness retreats, keynotes, half-day and full-day seminars, webinars and coaching.
I live in beautiful Denver, Colorado with my beloved partner, Neil and golden retriever, Gabriel where we all enjoy hiking, biking, gardening, snowshoeing, and our beautiful grandchildren!
