Tell us about yourself:
I am a psychologist and I do executive, personal, and work-life balance coaching in Austin, TX, where I have practiced for 20 years. One of my passions is to help women manifest their power, strength and purpose.
My husband I live in Austin, where we enjoy both the vibrancy and the nature that can be found in our city. We have 3 children: Morgan, Blake and Aubrey, all now adults in their twenties. They keep us involved in life in such a wonderful way. We are delighting in the newest member of our family, Lorelei, our 3 month old granddaughter.
Why did you become a Personal Renewal Group (PRG)Facilitator?
I attended Renee’s weekend retreat at The Crossings in Austin in 2009. I was blown away. As a psychologist I promote the importance of self-care. However, just like all women, I know the challenges of actually doing it. I loved Renee’s message and watching how she practices what she teaches. I was truly moved and inspired to bring this work and the groups into my life, my practice and to help other women experience the benefits of self-renewal and balanced living.
How has the PRG work changed or affected you?
As women we need to learn to nourish ourselves with the same fervor that we nourish our loved ones. The passion I feel about supporting women to be all that they can be, to lift them up and to empower them to take care of themselves is crazy rewarding! While working alongside these wonderful women, I have been inspired to put these concepts into practice in my own life and I am changing and caring for myself more. We can be successful mothers, wives, executives AND live in harmony. What a concept!
What are your favorite self-care activities?
For fun you will find me enjoying life’s adventures: hiking on the Great Wall in China, walking around Lady Bird Lake in Austin, kayaking in the Northwest, dancing, listening to music, watching live performances, gardening or simply cooking and laughing with my friends and family.
