My motto: “Anything is possible.”

I am delighted to have this spot to share my latest activities and writing with all of you. One of my greatest passions is working closely, one-on-one with my private clients, primarily younger women, helping them to gain clarity, learn life long practices and turn their dreams into reality.

As many of you may know, my daughter, Alexis, and I are the mother-daughter (doctor-lawyer) co-founders of  Borrowed Wisdom. We offer cutting edge personal growth programming and resources to help you get a life you love including tele-summits, interview series, online courses, mastermind groups and more! The mission is to inspire people to live happy, healthy lives  and give back to the world.

As a freelance journalist, I explore interesting and topical issues that are important for people to know about, think about and share. These days it’s mostly first person travel adventures, thoughts on life, stories about people – mainly women making a difference but also some fun stuff about music, food and wine, too!

I am always excited to share my interviews from my NPR radio segment. Force of Nature.  NPR also broadcasts my personal essays from time to time. It airs on NPR’s 51%, a Woman’s Perspective WAMC radio show. Here are a few of them:

Love at Any Age
