If I were to give myself a label, I'd happily call myself a human sparkler. I was born this way--all sparkly and such. In the early '70s, I figured out doing what I loved to do was way more fun than the alternative. That revelation and determination led me to follow my dreams to become a singer-songwriter, recording artist, national conference & retreat speaker, author, artist, and teacher. And, I'm still having fun as I approach my seventies--in fact, more so! After a life-altering auto accident in 2008, I developed chronic & acute PTSD, agoraphobia, and multiple autoimmune diseases. My journey within led me to discover the hidden layers of trauma, connect the dots, and ultimately, rewire my brain back to wholeness. I approach art-making as soul medicine, nature as my University, and thoughts as vehicles to greater self-awareness.
