Hello new friend.
I believe in transparency & integrity to build authentic relationships. It is good to connect with you.
I can't wait to get to know you. And until then, here is a bit about my journey. Maybe you relate to it.
I was born on the Day of the Soul Searcher, and that alone explains a lot about me. Looking back, there was always a bold and rebellious spirit in me that guided my way forward, spearheading me into innovative and out-of-the-box territory.
Sitting as a young girl in the church pews in the small Methodist church, I sensed something was off. I saw people behave out of integrity and then say it was okay because God forgave them. I saw racism in the church. I sat in the pews and highlighted where the Bible spoke of the domination of women and the Earth. I just knew - a felt sense knowing, a gnosis - that this was not the whole picture.
In my rebellious nature, I fell in love in my late teens and got pregnant during my first semester of college. I had to go back home and the sexual shame and family pressure - both religious and also the pressure to succeed - led to my first baby being adopted. This shaped so much of the next two decades of my life and was a massive severance from my heart.
In that pain of separation, I dove into trying to be worthy via pushing myself in career, marriage, and external definitions of success. I shut down my embodiment, my sexuality, my femininity, and I hustled to succeed as society tells you to do - in a masculine energy.
I got one degree and then a Master's, worked hard, and gave birth to another beautiful baby boy in 2009. In the first two years of my child's life - I did it all. I breastfed and worked, I sewed beautiful heirloom quilts and I got a second Master's. I believed I was responsible for the family's income because I felt I had to do it all myself. I was trying to do it all, be superwoman.
I started to get sick with adrenal fatigue and hormone disruption during this time - because clearly I was doing way too much. My body had been taxed for quite some time, and little did I know the extent of the trauma it was actually carrying.
I had my "Sacred Remembering" moment (the "Oh, I left something of myself back there!" moment) when my son was a toddler. We were outside in the woods, I couldn't put my finger on why I felt unfulfilled even though I "should" have been happy, and I remembered my soul in that moment. And I committed to finding that soul truth again.
While working as a school principal in holistic education, I remembered, "Oh, there's this thing called the feminine and masculine! It doesn't feel like my feminine is honored, and it feels like the world wants me to always be in my masculine!" And so I started reading all I could about the archetypes - Marion Woodman and Carl Jung among others - and I started to see how this was the root of my imbalance. My soul truly called me toward this information as the beginning of a *much* greater theme that my life had always intended for me to discover.
This walk of feminine/masculine integration became my way of living, and still is, for nearly a decade now. And that awakening turned into a spiritual awakening, realizing that truly all of life, on every level, is Feminine & Masculine, and what we are here to do at this time on the planet is to heal the misrepresentation and separation of these two energies. When we address this internally, relationally, and in our relationship with the divine (3 levels of existance), then we can actually experience Unity.
As I dove into my Sacred Remembering and soul-searching path, I discovered that my body held quite a lot of repressed trauma. Healing the trauma in my body's system, and trusting the truth of my body when my family denied that there had ever been abuse, etc, was a turning point for me. Trust your body!! As we lean into the healing of the trauma & density in our cells, muscles and emotional body, we reclaim a lot of energy that can become available to us living our most authentic and prosperous lives!
I have spent years learning and experiencing many modalities and healing therapies such as Hakomi, Internal Family Systems, EMDR, Trauma Release Therapy, "parts work," shadow work, integrating feminine & masculine, healing mother & father lineages, energy work, mindfulness, meditation, kundalini yoga, intimacy & sensuality/sexuality healing, shamanic journeying, and more!
I left a traditional career in early 2018 and have been very fortunate to truly live a path of feminine & masculine integration, Sacred Remembering & discovery. Every day is filled with magic, mystery, and more awakening!
On this path, what I also discovered is that while I had a lot to uncover, I also had a lot of magic buried too. I discovered that my soul and DNA are very, very old, I am a polarity-integrator soul type, I have had connections to the Grail Lineage & the time that Jesus & Mary Magdalene walked the planet, and much more. I am remembering more all the time, but the most important thing is to activate the gifts of those previous lifetimes in this one, and live my mission.
In the most recent years, I have been healing a very big family lineage pattern of feminine depletion, abuse and poverty and have made very significant discoveries about how we can heal feminine depletion via the land! This is how Heartland emerged - which is my most esoteric offering.
I am very passionate about helping women to stand in the truth of who they are, unburden the patriarchal veils and overlays, and to activate the truth that we are incredibly wise, ancient, gifted souls and our job on the planet is to unlock what is inside of us. I always say - what is tucked inside of modern women are the answers to what the future-world needs!
In 2022, I began to make the move from "entrepreneurship" to "ministry" and I run Sacred Remembering & Heartland Ministries from that ethos. The Sacred Remembering Community was built in 2021 and the vision for this space is that it become a place for women to 1) Remember their inner truths and sacred gifts, 2) Stand in them, 3) Receive money & prosperity for their soul's exact gifts! We are building this network now - join us!
I support us on our path of remembering, I support women in redefining our resources & reestablishing a value beyond capitalism and patriarchy, and I help us to heal spaces of separation in our lives & come back to Unity.

LIFE - The biggest, grandest education. And, I pay attention. Life has taught me my own close, close relationship with the archetypal masculine & feminine. Life taught me how to stop projecting and to really heal trauma. Life taught me that I wasn’t going to find that outside of myself, and that I needed to go Home, to Self, to the Sacred within, to remember the truth of who I am. Life taught me that I needed to get my ass up, integrate the lessons, lay down the BS, as a matter of survival. Life taught me how to really live richly and it taught me what prosperity truly is. Life taught me what I’m here for and how to be me. Life taught me how to live & speak truth, no matter the risk. Life taught me how to live consciously, the person I want to be,how to truly, truly love. And Life, dear one, is the greatest experience & credential I can offer you.
