One of my earliest formative experiences was the power of giving during the holiday season. My two brothers and I would buy Christmas gifts for kids our own age, wrap them up, and drop them off at a local organization. My heart was full with how doing something so easy for us would result in huge smiles for another on Christmas morning.
Conscious advocacy and volunteering my time has always been an ongoing passion. I’ve donated my time and marketing expertise to help a local hunger non-profit elevate their profile in the community and increase their fundraising efforts. A friend and I volunteered regularly at a soup kitchen on Sunday mornings; we chopped veggies for chili, made sandwiches with donated ingredients, and helped serve meals to a long line of homeless citizens. Through community outreach efforts, I’ve stood in front of groups of young women educating them about sexual violence prevention, and facilitated sensitive conversations about rape, power, and control.
As an ESL teacher, I’ve volunteered in classrooms to help international adult students learn English, and I have worked with very basic learners all the way up to more advanced groups. I’ve sat across from women eagerly learning colors for the first time, as well as the names of rooms in their houses. I’ve been put on the spot by very curious advanced students wanting to understand English idioms, such as why “the ball is in your court” or “that’s the way the cookie crumbles” or what it means “to catch somebody red-handed." You think you know English well - until you teach it!
My conscious advocacy turned global in graduate school as I chose my Master’s thesis to focus on the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, which are eight quantifiable and measurable goals aimed at reducing extreme global poverty.
Every country on the planet and all of the world’s leading institutions have agreed to participate and/or support these eight goals. My deep-dive research, which was conducted back in 2006 and 2007, revealed many amazing projects that are happening around the globe, including the Millennium Villages Project that helps rural villages transition to sustainable, integrated life solutions they can maintain on their own. Currently, 500,000 people in 14 sites across 10 countries are involved in this project.
The Millennium Development Goals are not well known because they’re not ‘sexy’ or driven by a celebrity, but they are transforming the world. Right now. As you sit here reading this, people are receiving mosquito nets to prevent the spread of malaria; tapping into fresh water for their village; giving birth in healthy conditions, and learning about their human rights for the first time. Amazing, right?
So giving back and helping our global sisters and brothers in practical ways has always been a priority. Even when life was incredibly busy and I didn’t have room for one more thing on my plate, I was searching for an organization that I felt a strong connection to based on this criteria:
- Efforts resulted in sustainable, practical life changes;
- Personal connections of some sort were encouraged and developed;
- People who are genuinely interested and committed to improving their lives and creating their dreams are supported.
Women for Women International is an organization that meets my personal criteria and also supports the efforts of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
Being selected as an Ambassador is an incredible honor, and deeply inspires me to spread the word about their incredible program.
I'll be sharing more success stories and updates through email and social media, and hopefully inspiring YOU to participate in our global efforts as well. Online events and fundraising goals will also be shared.
We are very lucky to live in a time when we have so much to be grateful for. And we're blessed to be able to support others in improving their lives and creating their dreams, too!

We are energetically able to support each other in unlimited ways right now, and one means of doing that is through conscious advocacy.
We have the ability to lift up our global sisters and improve their lives in practical ways while connecting with the power of sisterhood and success. And the right organizations are the perfect channels for this intention!
Women for Women International is an NGO (non-governmental organization) that helps women in war-torn countries rebuild their lives in practical, sustainable ways.
For over 20 years, they have impacted and improved the lives of 420,000 women – and counting!!
As an Ambassador for Women for Women International, I am committed to raising global awareness and inspiring actions in others (like yourself!) that will result in practical changes in women’s lives.

Are you holding yourself back from your FULL creative expression?
Your Soul's energy is blasting through right now to push you into a new part of your experience, and those energy shifts can be uncomfortable because it's new and unfamiliar on some level. On higher levels, it's COMPLETELY comfortable and familiar. That's where you want to connect with yourself - on those higher planes of Creative Confidence.
It is common when we are meeting a new part of ourselves for the first time to have those pesky fears show up. We may have doubt, worry, ego fears, and a case of the "shoulds" around what our creation "should" look like. It can be scary to be vulnerable or "too open". More unconscious messages can be around whether it has value, will anyone care, or will it be good enough? Perhaps you can relate to any of these - or all of them.
Yet the WONDERFUL news about the energy of 2017 is that we are each truly supported in taking the next step forward to 'put ourselves out there' and simply follow the JOY of creating, expressing, writing, making, and feeling ALIVE in our heart centers.
If you have fears of some kind, that's okay - we all do. We are meant to in order to be better humans. But I can guarantee that your HEART and SOUL are much stronger than any temporary fears or 'what ifs' that are circling around in your head. We are receiving downloads of Creative Confidence to move ahead and activate a deeper part of our heart's energy and honest expression. You can do so more effortlessly than you release, too.
Simply expand your awareness to be OPEN and WILLING to receive new levels of confidence, courage, as it connects to your inner joy. And don't be too hard on yourself for what has NOT happened.

The Write Beach Retreat is now open for inspiration!
Enjoy 5 days and 4 nights in a charming beachside hotel in Cocoa Beach, Florida as you take your writing career to the next level with deep-dive workshops + realistic directions + practical guidance for putting your unique brilliance on paper.
Especially beneficial for writers of the following genres:
Memoir | Non-Fiction | Spiritual/Inspiration
"The funny thing about a writing career is that you can only plan so much of it. The high points come out of the blue; the low points seems to drag on longer than anticipated; and the inspired writing phases can pass in the blink of an eye.
Each of my 10 books came about through various inspirations and situations that I never planned or had mapped out. My first book, "The Art of Trapeze", took 5 years to write, and I dealt with rejection from literary agents and discouragement within myself. But once the book was finally complete and released, it took off and sold over 30,000 copies globally, hitting #2 on Amazon behind "12 Years A Slave". (Yes, a small part of me wanted to let those literary agents know about that. I then wrote 3 more books in one year, followed by 4 more books in 2 years.
It is a very exciting time to be a writer and to follow this path because there are an incredible amount of resources, strategies, and opportunities for you right now.
And your biggest responsibility through everything is to just keep showing up for yourself.
The Write Beach Retreat will support you no matter where you are in your process because it will be geared to what you are experiencing right now with your writing projects.
It's time to write on - and I would love to help you with whatever writing project is calling to you now."

I have pictures for you from my life in Paris! These are a few of the places I describe in my spiritual memoir, The Art of Trapeze, and I wanted to share these images with you because I know how much visuals can make a story come alive. Come on over and hang out!
Here it is, the first Paris apartment I lived in and absolutely loved as soon as I stepped inside. Worth the wait after seeing many less-than-desirable places. Check out those high beams in the kitchen - gorge. The studio is incredibly small, as one would imagine, and I definitely got tired of sleeping and sitting on a futon. You can't see it very well here, but the kitchen is behind the wood countertop and only four feet wide. The fridge wouldn't fit in the space, so it had to sit in the living room. C'est la vie!
I loved, loved, loved my neighborhood in the 15th! Lots of energy, stores, restaurants, and a gorgeous giant park nearby on the Seine. During the holidays it is magical with Christmas lights and the smell of delicious warm pastries. You can see my little apartment window with the flower pot hanging on the railing.
Here's my second apartment with the gorgeous garden. This is the one that was under construction and I had to nudge those French workers along to get the place completed so I could actually move in. Also, you can see the window where Kitty escaped.
Thank you to everyone who read the book and enjoyed it! It's humbling to know I could contribute to your spiritual journey and understanding your life path, too.
The third book in the series will be released soon! Join the email list for updates and exclusive deals.
If you're interested in reading The Art of Trapeze, it's available as a paperback or ebook in many online stores.
