The Gritty Truth

I grew up in the corn fields of rural Illinois in the company of cows, pigs, chickens, horses, dogs and cats. Highly intuitive by nature, I’ve always had a love of animals and a deep connection to the natural world. My fiery passion and sensitive nature were often misunderstood, earning me the title of “The Black Sheep”.

The dis-empowering environments of my early years led me to question my self-worth and purpose in life. While I always knew I wanted to make a difference in the world, the specifics alluded me as I settled for ill-fitting jobs that drained my soul. On the plus side, my career meandering allowed for many wacky adventures and sensory explorations that I wouldn’t trade for all the money in the world.

My personal quest for insight and healing led me through extensive personal development work where I not only gained healing and understanding, but a passion for psychology of the mind. It took me 40 years to figure out Who I Want to Be When I Grow Up, but I can now  happily own my journey and share my insights as I help others pave their own road.
