Personal Story

Call me The Barefoot Dancing Rocket Scientist. As an engineer and rocket scientist by education/training and a resilience champion by passion, I love the beautiful dance of science and personal agency woven into the fabric of QHD.

After my 20-year dream to become an astronaut was shattered by pre-LASIK eyesight, I continued through life on a path that outwardly looked like traditional “success.” Internally though, I was adrift. In the years since, I've learned new ways of being. I've realigned my life with my passions for creativity, human connection, leadership, mindful living, and building resilience. I’ve realized that my astronaut dream emerged from an intuitive knowing of my spiritual connection to the universe. With Quantum Human Design, I’ve come home to my true soul work.

I’m living my dream every day, and I want that joy for you as well!

My Goal as Your Guide

My goal as your Specialist is to hold space for you to grow in awareness and live into the fullest expression of who you are. I believe that resilience actually IS rocket science – and you can rock it! I’d love to help you go from where you are to where you want to be, acknowledge your progress and adjust course, and let go to lift off.

The universe supports you and believes in you. So do I.
