A dark night of the soul

It was December 30, 2010 when I faced my reality.  My life was perfect from the outside.  A great job, a beautiful son, a loving husband, a house, a car, the list went on.  But I realized, I felt like all I did was work — and not even at a job I really loved.  I loved the people.  I loved the satisfaction of a job well done.  But what I really did. Eehhh.

As I looked at my baby boy, sleeping in his pack n play, I realized that this wasn’t the legacy I wanted to leave him.  This wasn’t the lesson in life I wanted to pass down.

It was time to change.

Over the next 12 months, I started my first blog.  I wrote my first book. I co-created his baby brother.

See, life is short.

My dad died in 2006.  He had just turned 56.  He died one Thursday morning – found on the floor beside his desk by his secretary.  He had been walking back from the printer just moments before.

Just like that.

I was a mess for a little while. At that point, I wasn’t married, hadn’t had kids and didn’t really feel like I had accomplished much in my life.  I was disappointed in myself – that I hadn’t done more to make my dad proud.

{** yes, I am now aware that he is super-proud of me**}

A few months later, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Being the oldest, the daughter, and single, I stepped into the role of caregiver, putting aside a few things in my life.  I’m happy to report that Mom has been cancer free for almost eight years.

You can’t put your dreams to the side forever.

The death of my father.  My mother’s illness.  The birth of my children.  Reality is this: life is short.  We only have so long to achieve our dreams, live out our purpose and leave a legacy.

The entrepreneurial leap

I wanted to create a legacy for my children – a specific view of life and how to live it.  I needed freedom to do that, freedom from the 9 to 5 and freedom from the rules a boss and a company naturally bring.  I wanted to help other people bring their dreams into the world.  I started my small business law firm in 2012, and branched into coaching and consulting in 2014.  In 2015, I officially added spiritual guidance and teaching to my repertoire.


I have been interested in all things spiritual since childhood.  I was raised in the church, but also read extensively on paranormal and fantasy subjects.  I experienced my first foretelling dream when I was 8.  I’ve lived in a haunted house and I have been saved by my angels more than once. I’m here to tell my story, to teach others, and to spread love.

My family

I met my soul’s partner in 2004 in a chance meeting.  The timing wasn’t right for either of us.  Almost two years later, we went on our first date.  My love asked me to marry him under the dome of the historic West Baden Springs hotel.  We tied the knot in the top floor ballroom of a downtown hotel, overlooking Monument Circle in Indianapolis.  Almost seven years later, we have moved to our dream city and we have two adorable boys who specialize in being loud, getting dirty and climbing on things.

Education and all that jazz

I am a certified angel card reader and a certified teacher of the law of attraction.  I am an ongoing student of meditation, manifestation, spirit, and love.  I have authored more than a dozen books, and is currently working on the forthcoming Spirituality and Religion: a guide to balancing your inner woo and the faith of your childhood.

I remain a practicing attorney.  I have spent the last fourteen years advising both individual and corporate clients.  My communication, research, and organizational skills benefit my clients by bringing a solid logical and technical foundation to the advice and guidance I provide.
