I deliver WORKSHOPS and INTERACTIVE LECTURES to teach women how to go from
information to integration in their journey toward radical self-expression.
Women also hire me to be their lifestyle coach in individual and small group settings.

I show each woman how to reintroduce her fully expressed self back into
her daily life design. She and I create sacred space for her to
re-align with her inner #RadicalSelfie, and women get
deeply meaningful results from my work.

This 7-year-old company, The Life Design Agency, is co-owned by my husband,
Creative Branding Specialist Kris Richards, and me, and operated with the help
of three talented women whose brilliance align with the Agency’s purpose.

I write BOOKS.

I COACH women virtually…

and on beautiful ISLANDS

Then I WRITE about my experiences on great blogs.
