I was born in 1935 the oldest of twelve (12) children on a farm in North Dakota.
While I was in College I met my husband and married in 1957. We moved to Chicago and started a family. After adopting my youngest son, at that time my oldest son was four years old, I started camps for young Children at the Park Ridge YMCA, Illinois. I discovered I was effective with children of all ages and had a powerful relationship with parents. I thank my parents for living in an environment of love, integrity and work ethics which they bestowed upon me.
In 1968 I moved to California. Everything seemed to be magically designed and arranged that led me to transformational work as a Leader for fifty (50) years worldwide. I worked with teenagers, businesses and general public empowering hundreds of thousands of people in being effective in areas of their life that were important to them. Since I led courses for various transformational organization for fifty years, I now was leading to grandchildren whose grandparents were teenagers when I led their course originally. It is a stunning experience to be able to support generations of family.
My life is fulfilling with a heart full of gratitude for the opportunity that leaves me speechless and honored to be a contribution in making a difference.
With love, gratitude and God’s Light,
