“There are those moments that you may not recognize at the time, but later realize, it is what  ‘shifts you.’   Transitions, stepping out of what we have known, whether comfortable or not, is challenging. It challenges our very foundation.  This transition doesn’t define you, you get to determine its imprint upon you and where you go from here.” 


“The real art of conducting consists in transitions. ”  Gustav Mahler 


I’ve come to believe that we all have our own arc of change.  Being mindful of your resources, taking time to resource yourself, and having congruence between your wise inner guide, strategic mind and deepest yearnings will lead you to the next best step.  I pose this here as I have often heard this to be presented as an either/or, you’re with the ‘thoughts determine life’ or ‘soulful and spiritual determine choices.’  I pick both.

I think us humans make it too easy to make things difficult, let’s work on simplifying and finding more ways to live with ease and on purpose.

There are many people involved to help craft a career, and I want to express thanks and give gratitude to my village that I have learned from and with!




“Creatively see yourself past obstacles with new insight and vigor, allowing for new possibilities!”  Beth Tunis, MA

Over time I allowed myself to pursue additional education that was outside of my traditional environment.  And I loved it.  I studied psychology and explored meditation and holistic philosophy.

I was stepping into uncharted waters, for me.  And it felt great. Today the common vernacular is “aligning with one’s passion and purpose.”  I just knew intuitively it was right!


I've been fortunate enough to gain education and experiences in a variety of disciplines exposing me to all sorts of situations, synchronicities and hurdles to jump.  After graduating from the University and working in entertainment and Human Resources, I felt a nudge to learn more about the human condition, to work in a deeper way.  I allowed myself to purposefully step into this transition period to enter a ‘learning’ period, a time of unknowns.

I entered a wonderful, experiential Graduate school, Phillips to study Systems Psychology and became a Licensed Psychotherapist. I continued to dive into uncharted waters, at least for me, and I loved it. Mindful Awareness workshops, Meditation, creative Journaling courses fed my spirit and my analytical mind. I meditated with my eyes pointed up and closed, and pointed down and slightly open, and many experiences in-between.

Today I am passionate about helping others recognize and align with their path. To feel well and do well, simply put.

With mission in hand, to work with spirited professionals and those in the midst of a life transition, mining the gold from your thoughts, emotions and inner resources.  I am excited to facilitate the SageExplorer approach, Strategic and Mindful coaching and courses.
