the world’s first MCC (Master Certified Coach)

SUN Founder and Executive Director

Why I love being a SUN Coach Educator/Trainer/Mentor

It fulfills my purpose to create learning environments (packed with creativity, challenge, discovery, spaciousness and fun) wherein students connect with their inner wisdom and essence and weave in the knowledge, competencies of coaching. I prefer to train participants who have a spiritual awareness because in my experience, the magnitude of the service provided is greatly amplified. For me, coach education gets at the essence of what is important. My favorite part is guiding someone to learn life purpose and we use that in instruction as a foundation or context for all choices. I also love marketing and educating coaches to be successful.

Personal – My life purpose is to inspire and guide us to take steps towards our dreams by inspiring authentic service to the sacred. I do this with passion and contagious, sparkling enthusiasm. I am so happy when people, in any part of my life, find, amplify, love and share their inner light. I studied and experienced different spiritual philosophies and they all contributed to my worldview that we are ONE connected through unique forms of spiritual expression.
