My husband and I live in Bend, Oregon with 2/4 of our children (2 are adults and no longer live with us). We have two dogs - a one year old chocolate lab named Maeve and a 9 year old GSP called Murray. I LOVE this community so very much and all that it has to offer - the outdoor activities, the people, the nature. I love to read and have the goal of completing my own novel by the end of 2023. During the summer you can find me on a body of water, hiking, or exploring. During winter I'm either on the mountain (new snowboarder!) or snuggled up next to a fire.
My corporate background is in Marketing. I have used that experience in the past working with many start-up corporations and as a business coach for entrepreneurs. I ran a women's community for 4 years while living in Portland, Oregon called "SPARK" - which included an annual conference that brought in hundreds of women from all over the country for two days of a "personal growth palooza". I love to volunteer when I can and have been involved with The American Cancer Society, various homeless shelters, and organizations that work with senior citizens. I love being around people.
All of these past experiences brought me to hypnosis in some capacity - it's been a fun journey that I'm grateful to be on.
I was first introduced to hypnosis in 2017 when a woman named Mary Lou Rodriguez sponsored a women's conference I was putting on in Portland Oregon. She was a hypnotist and it was my first introduction to someone who practiced "transformational hypnosis" (transforming the brain) and not "stage hypnosis" (getting people to act crazy on stage for entertainment). I began working with Mary Lou as her client shortly after and hypnosis changed my life. It not only helped me shift unwanted habits, it also reprogrammed by brain to begin working FOR me instead of holding me back. I was able to begin thinking like the woman I wanted to be - confident, wealthy, courageous, influential...and then I became that woman. When the opportunity came to learn from my mentor and get certified through her (under the National Guild of Hypnotists) - I was all in. Now I have the honor and privilege of helping others transform their lives through the incredible brain science power of hypnosis. It's been my greatest contribution to the world yet!
