City you live in: Cabo San Lucas,

My favorite thing about Cabo San Lucas is… The views, the environment, the people, the resturants, the comaraderie

A typical day in my life includes… Cuddles with family, including 3 dogs at 6:15 a.m., kids off to school by 7 a.m., work from bed for 30 minutes lounging and then off to work in my home office for 4-5 hours – I get to work with people here in Cabo as well as all over the world via Skype – how cool is that! Chill with kid stuff in the afternoon and then try to out cook my hubby for dinner.

I was born in… Seattle, WA

I’m listening to… tinnitus in my right ear and my fingers tapping on the keyboard.

My Family… is the bomb. I am surrounded by boys and they are awesome. I absolutely adore them.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… My Dad , he passed away in 2008. I wish I had truly realized before he passed what I now know. He was a great man.

One thing I cannot live without… sleep, I am an 8 hour a night girl. I cherish this time and plan accordingly so I get it. Since doing this, my over all well being has improved dramatically .. oh and Bullet Proof Coffee – MUST HAVE COFFEE.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… a singer, a music teacher and a therapist.

I’m inspired by… My closest friends, my “Ohana” as they say in Hawaiian. I have almost zero drama in my life as I have amazing people that surround me.

The one person who motivates me is… My kids, I am setting the example for them, they are wicked smart (clearly skipped a generation, not from me or their dad)

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… Distribution – there is enough of everything for everyone. There is a problem of greed, separatism and distribution. We are all one. Love, feed and energize the world.

The perfect day would be… Waking up in  yummy, crisp sheets, hearing waves crashing. Cuddles with my family, SUP with my friends, brunch buffet (favorite meal ever), get some feedback from my clients on how amazing their lives are. Sunset with toes in sand and a glass of ice cold Sauvignon Blanc or Prosecco with the hubs and then of course bed by 10 p.m.

My first job… Cleaning the meat department at a grocery store.

My favorite escape… any spa with a steam room, a dry sauna, a cold plunge pool and a warm Jacuzzi.

My life… is by my design and pretty dang great.

I’m currently working on… A book on “How to get Un-stuck in life” and an online coach referral company. We all should have the luxury of a personal coach.

Always… be in gratitude.

Never… energize the worst.

My Pet Peeve(s)… Clutter and you know that loud smacking sound when people suck the food off their fingers? O M G!

My Biggest Dream… Other than perfect health for everyone? Have a home on a cliff over the Pacific Ocean, with a best selling book that helps people all around the globe and time… Time and resources to be, and do, and see, is everything that my little heart desires.

Favorite Quote… “Good things happen, to good people, doing good things.”
