I grew up on a creek in a small town on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. After university, I practiced law at two firms in Washington, D.C.,  and then managed a few businesses. For the last twenty years, I have been in my sweet spot: inviting people to explore new vistas in emotional, relational, and spiritual growth through spiritual direction, life coaching, writing, retreats, and seminars. 

My husband and I live in McLean, Virginia. We have three adult children and six grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy family and friends, dogs, swimming, photography, writing, exploring the enneagram, and participating in a 12-step program. 

Academic background: University of Virginia B. A.; M. Ed.; J. D.
