Conscious Biz Woman, Mindful Farmer, Curious Cook, Spiritual Seeker, Lover of old-fashioned nightgowns. She/her
I come from a deep tradition of entrepreneurship and business. As the 4th generation of a family-run business, I grew up with business as dinner table conversation and even started my own as early as the 5th grade! Through college, I went on to theatrical design and found myself working as one of very few women in the male-dominated industry of Corporate Entertainment Lighting, managing multi-million dollar projects including Cirque du Soleil, the Wynn Resort and Celine Dion’s Caesars Colosseum.
At the top of my game in the Entertainment world, I found myself with a successful career but drained and spiritually bankrupt. That is the moment when I walked away from my career, a marriage that was struggling, sold my house, and followed a calling to dive deep into a path more aligned with my values of kindness and nourishment.
From that moment, I moved in to the Holistic community and now have over 20 years experience with counseling, healing, teaching, leading spiritual retreats, and event planning. To those skills, I added a wide range of experience in online marketing including certification as an Infusionsoft Consultant. All of this comes together into my own unique flavor of coaching business entrepreneurs.
In addition to business coaching, I have a beautiful 13-acre farm in Western NY, Crown Hill Farm, from which I help nourish many families in our community. I grow heirloom vegetables, raise heritage poultry and advocate for food diversity and sovereignty. I have a passion for every aspect of food from the seed to harvest to cooking and the final dish.
Be it in business, on the farm, or in my teachings… my work now brings together my holistic experience with my roots in business and connection to the natural world. Nourishment is what drives my curiosity and service-- both to support conscious business owners to grow their businesses and to grow food to feed my community -- all in a way that feeds rather than depletes. The wisdom of nature that I live within every day comes through in my approach to entrepreneurship thus fostering that nourishment of body, spirit, business and people.

Ha! I might be in my backup career which is hopefully my 4ever career. I have journeyed the range of careers so who knows which was 'real' and which was the backup?!
