I am inspired by dogs.

I am inspired by their beauty, their grace, their wisdom.

I am inspired by their ability to always love us, to forgive us, and to teach us what is important, the lessons that we are given so that we can become the best versions of ourselves. They believe in us and can lead us, even when we don’t fully believe in them or ourselves.

I grew up with dogs and I have been blessed with their companionship ever since. They’ve been my best friends in adventures, my artistic muses, my partners in dog sports, my soul mates when I’ve felt alone and integral members of my family. They helped to get me through tough times in my life and we expanded and grew together. In one of the more challenging times in my life with my dogs, I learned about Kathy and the Foundation Formula and decided to try this new way of thinking and being. Truth be told, at first it didn’t fully click in or make total sense to me! But there was something there that spoke to my very essence. I was drawn to the concepts of collaboration, understanding our dogs from their perspective and living in partnership. I began to explore this new way of being, as part of the Brilliant Partner’s Academy, the Creative Alchemy Passion Plan, RRI, and through other classes that Kathy offered. As I did, I uncovered new layers, became a “winner and a learner” and realized that there was so much more to learn! When Kathy chose to start the coaching program, I was drawn to it and made the choice to take part, to expand my understanding, and to seek and learn at an even deeper level.

I am a partnership coach who is ready to help guide you on your journey of life with your dogs! I am also an intuitive artist, who can help you to connect more deeply with your dog, combining coaching with the visual medium of a painting and the message that I receive while painting in the form of a song & lyrics. We can add another layer with my Partnership Oracle Cards which also will allow your dog to help inspire you and will facilitate deeper insights and pathways for coaching into partnership solutions for greater connection and guidance through your challenges I am ready to coach, guide and inspire you to that deeper level of connection with your dog, helping you to create the wonderful life that you dream of sharing with your dog.

The partnership principles that guide us to achieving a brilliant life with our dogs have had a profound effect on my life both with my dogs and beyond into my everyday life as well. My dogs continue to inspire me…My dogs inspire me to do my best to be the person that they believe that I am. If my story resonates with you and if you are looking for coaching, intuitive art and/or Oracle card consultation then I invite you to contact me. I look forward to the opportunity to expand and learn from each other as we grow together in this journey of understanding and partnership.
