About

Education and Experience

In 1996, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. For over 20 years, I have worked in the nonprofit sector in both the program and development arenas. My work experience includes organizations and clients with programs and needs related to HIV/AIDS, single parents, at-risk and homeless youth, mental health, art education, mentoring, and basic needs and services.

Past and current projects include board and staff workshops for nonprofits helping to re-craft their organizations’s mission and vision, assess their resources & build capacity, and reinvent their organization, roles, and responsibilities to better serve their clients. I have trained volunteers, provided safety and empowerment education to youth, and facilitated diverse community groups toward common purposes.

I have studied Image Psychology at the Eidetic Institute of Austin for since 2005, and continue to utilize this experiential process to increase my own potential and that of the groups with whom I engage through experiential exercises.

In the summer of 2015, I completed my Reiki II training.

I became a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist in September 2015 through the Grief Recovery Institute.   

My five children have been my greatest teachers. I embrace the adventures I have been invited into as their mother. I oil paint in my studio and write creatively as often as possible. I enjoy long, meditative hikes in beautiful places, and am grateful that I live in one. I enjoy time with my husband regularly, and am grateful for our partnership and his support every day.

Holding an Open Space for Movement toward the Possibilities

Each group is unique, and every group has assets. The possibilities within the group dynamic are infinite. When we commit as a group to being process oriented, mentally flexible, and listening wholeheartedly, the We of our group expands. We are capable of designing an outcome that is beyond our individual imaginations.

We will help generate and enhance the group’s ability to Trust, Surrender, Listen, and Create. Together, we can explore untapped resources and potentials as we build relationships and community in an ever changing world.
