What’s with all the dragonflies?

When life knocked me down, hundreds of red dragonflies lifted me up.

What I learned from them was so life-changing that I’ve been writing, painting and speaking about it ever since.

Dragonflies grow their magical wings while crawling in the muck at the bottom of the pond. And so do we.

Their story has helped me change mine. And now, I’m on a mission to help others transform their muck into magic.

A joyful, inspirational book grew in my muck.

I bet there’s something special growing in yours, too.

From Muck To Magic is a one-of-a-kind inspirational book. With heart, art and humor, it takes you on a poetic journey from self-doubt to self-love. Within its colorful pages is a powerful blueprint for transformation. And an invitation for us all to rise up from our personal muck to bring our own unique magic into a world that has never needed it more.

“I am inspired by the joy that radiates from these lovely paintings, and I believe in the message — for  it is we women now, who can and must ‘re-wire’ our whole world.”
Ali  MacGraw

“The most beautiful dose of therapy you could ever get your hands on. A feast for the eye, the heart and the soul. Read it and be uplifted. Drink in its gorgeous paintings and fly.”

Best-selling author of The Ten Things To Do When Your Life Falls Apart

my story.

The muck. The magic. The mission.

In my past life, I was an award-winning copywriter and Creative Director at one of the largest advertising agencies in Los Angeles. But my soul longed for something more. Unexpectedly, I was forced to find it when I lost my big fat job at 50. Sobbing in my backyard, I asked The Universe, “Am I too old to reinvent myself? Please give me a sign.”

I went for a walk and came home to find my yard filled with hundreds of red dragonflies. I learned that dragonflies spend most of their lives crawling at the bottom of a pond. And in the muck, they grow their magical wings.

Their story helped transform mine. And inspired me to rise up and find the gifts in my struggles — from losing my job to almost losing my child to addiction.

From there, my mission took flight: to uplift and inspire others to transform their muck into magic.

Turning muck into magic. One post at a time.


More than a speech, it’s a magical connection.

These days, instead of presenting ad campaigns to boardrooms full of men, I’m uplifting and inspiring rooms full of women. With wit and wisdom, paintings and poetry, I speak to groups of 40 to 400, from corporate executives to stay-at-home moms. Any woman, going through any kind of transition, challenge or change can relate to my signature talk, “From Muck To Magic.”

I share my personal story to help them reframe theirs. “Dragonflying Lessons” encourage them to find the gifts in their struggles. And remind them that “it’s never too late to soar.” No matter what size the crowd, it feels like a heart-to-heart conversation.

Wanna get unstuck from your muck?
Let’s talk.

It’s my joy to offer Intuitive Muck-To-Magic Phone Sessions.

During our 50-minute call, we’ll transcend the mental muck of the Mind together and tap into the higher wisdom of the Heart and Spirit.

You’ll receive divine guidance and practical tools to help you rise up from self-doubt and limited thinking, enabling you to move forward with more clarity, joy and possibilities.

Here are some of the gratifying comments I’ve received after the sessions:

Bling some magic into the world.

I’m over the moon (and rainbow) that my publisher turned some of the paintings from my book into notecards.

And then, outdid herself by putting little rhinestones on each and everyone of them.

We purposely kept them blank inside so you can add your own magic. (Hint: you can also frame them as little pieces of art. And heart.)

So, go ahead. Spread some joy. Lift some spirits. And send some sparkle out into this world.

Fly me an email.

I’d love to hear from you—whether it’s to book a session, book a speech or to just share a little magic.
