By working with money for 30 years, I have been able to observe how people interact with and respond to money. For most of my professional career, I have worked a consultant to different types of businesses in accounting and finance. I have also owned my own business and am currently the controller for a community health center. In these roles, I use financial information to provide meaningful feedback and support to clients to make better decisions about money and to increase profit and sustainability.

I found that, by learning how to listen, money tells us the truth about what is working and what is not.  Money touches our vulnerabilities, histories, and emotions. Through my own desire to make a living, to have a peaceful and healthy life, and to contribute to the community, I learned a different way to approach my relationship with money. To be in balance with money requires balance between head and heart.  More and more, money is an expression of love and joy in my life.

I am the co-creator of the Money of Love workshops.  The Money of Love is an evolutionary process of change in perception and understanding of money.  This process involves a personal inquiry into the nature of money and our individual definition of and beliefs about money.  It is through the expanded understanding of money that we can change our relationship and interactions with money.

I have a peaceful and simple life. In addition to my work in a community health center, and the Money of Love workshops, I volunteer in the treasury for nonprofits.  I am grateful for my lovely family and my new role as a grandmother.  I like plants, rocks, art, nature, beauty, and travel. I have a daily spiritual practice, many great friends, and I am member of a spiritual community.
