My digital business card with links to everything you'd ever want to know about me.
People often tell me, "Wow! You do so much!"
I figure it's all connected.
I'm never bored; I'm always having FUN; my glass always more than half-full.
That's what's important.

WHAT I DO
I work online and peer-to-peer––mentoring, consulting, facilitating, and hosting workshops in teaming, marketing, brainstorming, and social media. I design/develop websites for creatives who are mostly women over sixty and I write and edit content for these websites.
I believe in doing well by doing good. For several decades I've integrated my passions and talents in the areas of design, fine art, writing, audio/video production, and business/marketing development into projects like The CoPassion Project and the A-Place-To-Call-Home/Voices of Our Story project. These signature projects promote inclusion, compassion, and common humanity by communicating Story through multi-media arts.
I speak to groups, both virtual and live, about flipping the script from TIRED to INSPIRED and RETIRED to RE-INSPIRED.
I host and facilitate CoCreation Conversations on Zoom—free monthly, interactive sessions where, on the last Friday of each month we have a special guest sharing something awesome about their creative and meaningful lives— sure to inspire you and enhance your own life, business, and how you approach your own creative endeavor.
I am an experienced designer, marketing professional, website developer, and conversation radio/TV producer and host. I now live in the Sierra Foothills, in Northern California, after a successful entrepreneurial career of forty years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Being "retired" means I enjoy a "location-independent lifestyle". My work is play. It is mostly online, and I can play from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
I have received national honors, awards, and publication for my work in the Sustainable Design/Green Building industry and for contributions to education and broadcasting.
I love being a co-creator, mentor, and connector, and to give ‘Voice’ to igniting positive change in the world.
Best of all, I am a devoted partner to my artist-husband of 50+ years, a proud mom of two awesome, creative sons, and every day, stay-at-home mom to my two pit bulls, Bella and Dos.
I'M PROUD OF THESE THINGS
