My vision is to do my part to raise the vibration of the planet, one person at a time, to ultimately launch a butterfly effect: “A butterfly can flutter its wings over a flower in China and cause a hurricane in the Caribbean”.* The flutter of a butterfly’s wings is not forceful or commanding, yet that gentle movement can be inspiring, with the power of exponential effects. My own “gentle flutter” includes providing mental health therapy, speaking engagements, workshops, and my Crystalline Vibes™ children’s book series, using playful storytelling through the eyes of beloved animal characters to teach children how to be happier and healthier.
I grew up in Mancos, Colorado, population 1,000. Growing up, I spent my childhood rescuing animals, working in my parents’ hardware store--through good, old-fashioned parent manipulation--and even running my own detective agency, graciously sanctioned by the Town Marshall.
My journey to grown-up-hood took a meandering path. Early on, my parents understood that I would need a lot of encouragement and persuasion to pursue a safe, stable, and secure career. More of that good, old-fashioned parental encouragement led me to earn a BA in Accounting and I became a CPA. Yearning for more adventure and excitement, I returned to my childhood law-enforcement roots and became a Special Agent for the FBI, and a new path was forged.
