Within Origins of Peace, I am referred to as a Creative Peace Coach, using creativity to solution many of my clients most challenging problems.

My workshops are created to help my clients resolve conflict by equipping them to challenge the norm, dismiss limiting beliefs, and reframe problems as opportunities to create a new way forward.

While the country was in lockdown due to uncertainty about COVID-19, many people began purchasing houseplants as a way to cleanse the air in their homes and to liven up their space. I was no exception to this trend. As a way to “dress up” my houseplants, I began creating Planters as a unique home decor item to display my houseplants in a fun and creative way. After posting a few pictures online, I received hundreds of requests from all around the country. I scaled my company to include this unique home decor item and now I teach others how to create their own Planters in individual and group settings.

PlanterswithSOUL! has become my number one service for teambuilding to improve social wellness and authentic expression. This service is great for building connection, authenticity and collaboration amongst team members.

During a traumatic season in my own life, I experienced divorce, cancer and job loss all within a 6-month time period, which lead to the creation of this company, as well as the structure for my signature teambuilding service,

CREATE! Empowerment Session.

After in-depth self-reflection, I created a plan for change and did the work to make it happen.

Create! is offered in individual and group settings.
