This is me


  • Mom to 6 incredible human beings!
  • Grandmother (they call me Nita) to 5 off the charts wonderful grandkids.
  • I have a strange fascination with rocks, fossils, and shells. So of course, my home is filled with bowls and containers of these. In fact, on vacations, I need to find or purchase a rock to bring home. Weird?
  • I love tending to indoor and outdoor plants.
  • I always need to be creating something. In the past, I have done massive amounts of cross stitch, quilting, and sewing. Now my passion is refurbishing wooden furniture, oil painting and creating original colored pencil artwork.
  • I always have a book going. Sometimes fiction (murder mysteries) sometimes non-fiction (anything from cookbooks to relationships).
  • I am a woman of faith.
  • My sister is my best friend.


  • Several years as a special education teacher.
  • I have sold my crafts and quilts in many venues.
  • I opened a booth at an antique store.
  • I created a business selling used home school curriculum materials.
  • The project I am most proud of up to now is my Professional Organizing business. It was profitable, fun and so satisfying, but also hard on my back.


  • Laughing
  • Organizing
  • Asking questions
  • High Energy
  • Positive Thinker
  • Empathic
  • And attracting children and dogs


  • Certified Coach through The Coach Training Academy
  • Certified Emotional Intelligence Coach
  • Member of the Certified Coaches Alliance with an International Coach Certification
  • Homeschooled all of my children
  • For several decades I have taught Bible Studies to children, teenagers, and women
  • Dedicated many years to mentoring women in groups and one on one covering topics such as overcoming the effects of abuse, negative self-image and how to forgive and love yourself
  • Spent years attending counseling classes to learn how to help women overcome major obstacles in their lives


I love to see people

  • Live their passions
  • Use their unique gifts
  • Learn and grow from past experiences
  • Find their “voice”
  • Live their definition of happiness

These may be women who:

  • Struggle with a negative self-image
  • Struggle with weak boundaries (can’t say no, people “run over" constantly)
  • Struggle with knowing who they are apart from what others need from them or what others have decided for them
  • Live or have lived with very controlling persons or people
  • Going through a life transition and having trouble finding their own way
  • Forgotten how to create positive dreams for the future
