I am a certified personal development coach with a 25 year background in writing and communications, currently completing my degree in Visual Communications with Marketing and Business Management.
As a personal development coach, I nurture women and encourage them to dig deep into their passion and purpose, and to express themselves fearlessly. I have raised three strong and vibrant daughters, all making their own way in the world.
I believe that the collective voice of women who care is the catalyst for change and the saving grace of humanity.
I cut my teeth writing the so-called humorous lifestyle columns, but I have endeavored in all my writing, to make powerful, if sometimes subtle, statements of the value of women and women's lives. The subtitle on the World Pulse banner says it all -- "No one speaks for me. I speak for myself." And look out if I get up on my soap box.
My father wanted me to become a lawyer. At the time my vision was short and I was not interested. It has become my biggest regret. I realize now, that it would have been an ideal vehicle for me to make changes with the skillful use of argument and the power of language.
Language (note - unfortunately not multi lingual) and communication are my passion, but I have lived a small and sheltered life so feel disadvantaged in this expanding global society. Still, I can make a difference in my small corner of the world. And perhaps World Pulse will help me expand my horizons globally!
