As a certified life and weight coach, I work with women over 50 to help them make the sacred accessible in everything life offers through an awareness of the transformational power of their virtues, like confidence, forgiveness, trust and love.
Virtues empower individuals to live more authentic meaningful lives, families to raise children of compassion and integrity, educators to create safe, caring, and high performing learning communities, and leaders to encourage excellence and ethics in the workplace. The Virtues Project has inspired and mobilized people worldwide to commit acts of kindness, service and generosity, and to heal violence with virtues.
I have been in love with The Virtues Project for over 25 years. I received my Master Facilitator designation in 2007, and The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project, is the framework that helps me to leverage the transforming power of the virtues in my life. My marriage, my parenting and my relationship with myself and others thrive in this space.
In my work as Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) practitioner, and part-time college professor in the faculty of Social Service Work, I developed and taught virtues-based curriculum and facilitated “Roots to Success”, a strength and resilience-based program for high school students. This program inspired students to own their virtues, graduate and often become the first in their families to pursue a college education.
I contribute to The V Channel as a writer, editor, and “V advisor”, to engage and inform parents, teachers and coaches—everyone who cares for children—about the power of virtues, and to give them simple and entertaining ways to share virtues with kids of all ages to be the very best they can be.
I strive to focus on what's right with the world and see it though the lens of the virtues, not only in my coaching practice but also in my capacity as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, certified yoga teacher and a journey level beekeeper. I practice savoring all that I am and doing what I love.
THE VIBE IN THE HIVE
Connect with community in compassion and non-judgement. I offer a weekly free group session that focuses on a character strength…a virtue you have within. We explore what it is, how it feels, the action it inspires and the results it helps provide when we tap into the magical power of the virtue. In community, like honey bees, we vibrate a higher expression and spectrum of all of the virtues. Come fly with us to discover, explore and collect the nectar and pollen of love, compassion, forgiveness, understanding, respect, determination, courage, confidence, assertiveness, accountability and many other feelings and character strengths. Your sacred hive is your heart. You have all the virtues within already. Uncap that sweetness that is your birthright – your life is full of purpose and you are enough and 100% lovable just bee-ing you.
Let me support you in standing on your own holy ground, in pure authenticity and integrity. Like nectar and pollen make pure honey, you are pure possibility, always.
