Writer | Poet | Personal (Life) Coach | Parent

Creating real connection through the wonder of words.

I connect small businesses to ideal customers and charities to those who care by pouring your passion onto the page.

I use words both on and offline to connect you to your higher/unconscious self, through coaching, poetry and sharing stories about personal growth.

I'm also a perfectly imperfect parent and share my stories to connect with other parents and remind them that we're all making this up as we go along.

I'm a big fan of bubbles.
