My "Why"? I advocate, educate and inspire others so they can live their best lives possible.


I have worked in people development my whole adult life.  The modalities have changed over the years but the core theme has remained the same: partnering with people to discover more about who they are, tap into their potential, overcome internal hurdles, and expand their lives.  My focus today is supporting individuals in creating their best encore lives possible!

My HOWS- the actions that express my WHY:

Life Coaching specializing in individuals at midlife who want to create their next best life.

Volunteer Recruitment for Boomers Leading Change, a nonprofit that mobilizes people age 50+ to utilize their talents skills and experience for social good.

Teaching adult education courses at Arapahoe Community College and Colorado Free University on Encore Careers and job search support for people age 50+.

Consulting and coaching in the Career Transition Department at the Employers Council.  I support individuals who have been released from a position from  preparing all the necessary tools and guiding then through the job search process to a successful outcome.  As the resident expert on retirement readiness for the Council, I partner with individuals and groups to complete a Mapping Your Retirement program that creates a plan for the next stage of life.

I am available for speaking engagements on "Transition: Life at a Crossroads",  "Your Encore Life: Some Assembly Required", "Purpose, Passion and a Paycheck: What is YOUR Encore Career?" and other topics that relate to the second half of life.
