I worked as a change agent at Fortune 500 General Motors and RJR Nabisco. I coached at the C-suite level and below, strategized large-scale change initiatives, and led efforts in creating culture change and leadership development at DTE Energy. I am a certified transformational change coach. In 2001 I left the corporate career and spent the next 14 years discovering and exploring what transformational change is not only for us as individuals but as a society.
Spending 3-years working and practicing a meditative yoga in India added to the transformational change experience and knowledge base. Studied the science behind music/vibrations and mantras. Led meditation sessions which combined both mantra and meditation.
In 2019 I became a certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide through the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy (ANFT) Guides and Programs.
I discovered and developed tools and techniques to de-stress and learn new ways to overcome limitations.
