About Me

My entire life changed the moment my doctor turned her chair to face me.

She had lab reports in one hand, the other hand placed on the thyroid in her throat. "Your body is attacking itself. You have Hashimoto's autoimmunity." I'd never heard of the disease, but I knew instantly, at a cellular level, that my body shut down to get my attention.

My body shut down because I was not speaking my truth. I was so misaligned from my soul that it made me physically ill. If I'm brutally honest, I was afraid I wasn't worth anything if I slowed down. That fear pushed me into an unhealthy obsession with achievement and external validation.

The Universe finally drew a line in the sand.

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?


Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

In December 2013, on my sofa in my living room. I was alone with colored pens, stacks of post-it notes, and big dreams.

I finished the process in one weekend, launched a Desire Map book group the next weekend, and one year later was a licensed Desire Map Coach running my business online.

I can't explain the sensation of finding The Desire Map, other than to say I finally came home.

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

I walked away from my 15-year career in higher education because I knew that my Core Desired Feelings were not bring met.

I sold everything and spent two years traveling solo around the world because I knew that my Core Desired Feelings are fully met when I'm traveling.

I'm unapologetic about making big and small decisions in my life based on my CDFs. They've revolutionized absolutely everything.

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

In my two-year walkabout I reinvented myself a thousand times over. I died and re-birthed myself over and over and over until I felt like home. I let the goddess have her way with me. i had conversations with the moon. I slept when i was tired and swam when I needed to cleanse it all.

I also came to understand my life's work: Creating sacred spaces for women to have their own wild remembering.

You're so close...that's why you're here now. You can do this. Let's go the rest of the way together.
