Transformation is one of my most deeply held values. I believe that our purpose for being is to awaken to a higher level of consciousness in order to transform our human experience. I have lived this value in my own life, and have discovered that one of my personal Spirit-gifts is the ability to help facilitate this process in others.
I am an author, speaker and workshop presenter. I have published numerous articles and the book Dark Matters: Discovering Wholeness in the Shadows which is available on Amazon. I have presented workshops and spoken in churches, in the corporate world, and at regional, national and international conferences.
I love teaching. It is my passion, my heart, and my gift. I first realized it over 30 years ago when I began tutoring fellow students in college. During my 20 year career in the corporate world, I developed curriculum and taught classes in companies all over the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Denmark, the Netherlands and Panama. I also presented papers at a number of international conferences in the United States.
I am now creating curricula for and teaching classes related to spiritual growth. As a dedicated lifelong learner myself, I have a Bachelor of Music degree from Emporia State University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Missouri in Kansas City, in addition to a Master of Divinity degree from Unity Institute.
