I have always loved connecting with women and helping them overcome their problems. So when people began coming to me for advice many years ago, feeling stressed and blocked about everything from their health to relationship issues, it felt really natural and fun for me to help them. Little did I know that listening to others and sharing my knowledge would lead me to the work I'm doing now.
A lot of this began when I was diagnosed with lupus when I was 15. After being on drugs that made me feel icky, I decided there must be a better way to feel good and be healthy - so began my journey of researching health and wellness. I have studied, researched and tried a multitude of alternative therapies and natural remedies - and I am happy and proud to say that after over 30 years of doing this work, and with a major shift in my mindset, I healed myself. So empowering! I now love helping others to attract what they want, whether it's great health, a new job, more abundance or their perfect partner.
A few years later a whole new world opened up to me during my first week at Capitol Records, when a co-worker turned me on to Louise Hay's book, You Can Heal Your Life. I have been addicted to studying personal growth, spirituality and self-improvement ever since.
The most powerful tool ever shared with me was the teachings of Abraham-Hicks and the Law of Attraction - given to me by another boss and mentor (now a good friend) at Capitol Records. This amazing knowledge has enabled me to attract miracles into my life, big and small - great friends, ideal jobs, vibrant health, perfect homes, work I am passionate about - and the most amazing thing was finally attracting the romantic relationship I had been wanting for years. I am now happily married to the man of my dreams - also from Capitol Records.
After spending over thirty years studying and absorbing all of this amazing information about self-help, personal development, spirituality, holistic health and Law of Attraction while working in the corporate world of the music business, I decided to gather all of this knowledge and write a book to help people everywhere deal with their daily stress, improve their health, connect with their spirit and learn to relax. Living Peacefully in a Big City: A Guide to Maintaining Your Sanity, Health and Happiness was published in 2009 and has received rave reviews for the help and support it has provided to its readers.
To honor my father's dying request, I moved in with my mother after he passed away in 2003, and became Mom's full-time caregiver in 2010. I learned so much from this experience and considered it a blessing and a gift to have this responsibility, even though it was a daunting task at times.
During my time caring for her, I applied all of my knowledge and experience to my mother's care in dealing with type 2 diabetes, dementia, congestive heart failure and arthritis. Although she slowed down quite a bit toward the end, she enjoyed a happy, healthy life her last few years. Mom passed away in April of 2018, at home, comfortable in her own bed, just the way my father had requested and the way she wanted to go. Now we are both moving on to our next life.
This experience inspired me to write a holistic program to teach other caregivers to take care of themselves first and I also share the practices I had in place that were incredibly beneficial to my mother - The Enlightened Caregiver: A Holistic Care Guide for You and Your Loved One is now available in paperback and as an ebook.
During these past few years, I had to take better care of myself to handle the continually increasing demands on my time and energy with my mother’s care. Now I am still practicing self-care every day as I help other women to do the same. As my friends and clients keep reminding me, I have to practice what I teach!
And speaking of self-care, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of taking care of YOU and making sure you put your well-being first and that you have fun in your life!
As adults we often forget how to have fun - we worry we it might appear immature or unproductive.
On the contrary - having fun will keep you young, healthy and inspired! I go to Disneyland as often as I can as part of my regular wellness routine...and sometimes I take my clients with me to inspire them and remind them how to experience magic as an adult. Maybe you will be joining me one day :)
I am thrilled that I am now able to serve more clients in my
one-on-one coaching and in the Infinite Woman community.
