Welcome to my page! As an author, educator, speaker, counselor, and lover of travel, animals, and adventure, I would love to be your next speaker or workshop facilitator. A Michigan native, I now live in North Carolina with my husband, Daniel. We are owned by two cats, Rutherford B. Barrett, aka. Bubby, and Oliver Monkey.
During this time of the COVID-19 crisis, please take care of yourself, not only by social distancing, wearing a mask, and washing your hands,
but by taking care of your heart & emotions, as well.
