My Why

As a result of participating in a person-centered planning process for my aunt several years ago, I was able to see things about her life from a completely new perspective. I love that I am now in a position to offer others the same opportunity to learn how to support their loved ones to have more control over their own lives and to have more opportunities to reach their full potential. After working for more than 20 years in the for-profit world, I am thrilled to be able to use my powers for good instead of greed!

My Life

I have lived in Oregon for over 20 years after growing up in Southern California. I'm basically a home body, with big dreams for world travel in the future! When I'm not working I love to spend time with my kids, watch movies, and hang out at home.
