Where it all began

My career path started in an unusual way. When I was 14 years of age I was absorbed in the idea of being a Catholic nun. Of course being raised as a Catholic it was the natural selection at the time. I was inspired by the missionary nuns and how they were in service of others, particularly taking care of children and feeding the poor. That’s when I felt the call to serve and where my purpose became clear to me. Although I am no longer in the convent or a nun, being of service of others is a key value and integral part of who I am. The thread of service has run consistently throughout my life and in all my roles.

The road that lead me to where I am today was full of twist, turns and challenges, but each of those experiences has made me stronger, more compassionate and served to make me more adept at what I do. When I was 27 years old I began a journey that turned my life around. I had two babies to take care of after my husband passed and had to make some decisions that would take the three of us to a higher level of life. At the time, we were living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The decision to move to San Francisco, California was a bold move, but one that produced a good life for all of us. It was the beginning of my transformation and the beginning of the work that I am now doing.

During my years in the corporate world, I had the opportunity to engage with heads of state, such as the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, the Princess of Sweden, Crown Princess Victoria, the former president of Chile, Ricardo Lagos and other such dignitaries. I also worked with industry luminaries and CEO’s from the high tech world. These rich experiences  have provided me with a better insight and understanding of what it takes to be a leader and make a greater difference in the world.

Life has been my greatest teacher, however I can’t discount my education and thirst for expanding my knowledge and expertise. Over a span of thirty years, I attended West Valley College for my general education, and have studied with some of the very best in the world of transformation and philosophy, to include Werner Erhard and Landmark Education, Dr. Fernando Flores and Humberto Maturano. I trained with Robert Pante for image consultation, Thomas Leonard for life coaching and with Toby Hecht for Sales. My training has also included studying with many spiritual teachers that broadened and deepened my spirituality and humanity. I am a student for life and continue to immerse myself in expanding my knowledge.

I see the world through eyes of love and find beauty wherever I stand. I am deeply committed to being of service and having people embrace their beauty, as that is my calling.
