I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU! I don't need to know you or even see you because I don't see the person you see in the mirror.
I may see a badass goddess or wholehearted warrior that if given the chance to see what I see, you'd love yourself too. You'd be unstoppable...unstoppable at being YOU. That may be someone you have not yet met, let alone fallen in love with. That's okay. I get it. I haven’t always lived free. I know self-hate, self-sabotaging behaviors and what it feels like to live someone else's dream. These stories no longer define me, but they do offer you an entry point into my cellular memory. You will understand why my compassion and empathy for all beings and unflagging belief in you is so strong. You will feel this place of safety and zero judgment that drives my loving approach -- sometimes gentle and other times not so much -- that may inspire you to shed all that no longer serves you.
You get one “bucket” in this life and it is not divided up into “work” and “life”. It’s just life. So, I invite you to find that tummy-tickle inspiration that bubbles up and the thrill of feeling life breathing you regardless if you are at “work” or “play”. Your true work is YOU, it's not what you do. It's about life-fulfillment and feeling life fully, not numbing to tolerate one more day. That's not living. You are free - you are truly free.At BodyMindBusiness, we help you reclaim the way you work, think and live. We are passionate about authentic living and personal and professional expansion. Our signature is to make a difference. We seek to transform lives, companies and communities with an intuitive and holistic approach to creating sustainable, integrated and sexy systems that elevate wellness, productivity and profits.
I live in the Magic Valley of Southern Idaho where I am awakened daily to the beauty of nature and blessings of living in community at the Dame Ranch. So, it suits me well that most of my life has been grounded in agriculture -- from growing up on a farm to a career in agricultural research and even owning my own seed business. In 2006, I made the leap from a successful agri-business career to pursuing a personal journey towards better well-being for myself and my daughter. This quest has lead me to claim my own new way of being.
I discovered early on that I had a unique gift of insight and a desire to help others. I completed professional life-coach training curriculums like the Hilton Johnson’s Health Coach Training Program, the DreamBuilder program from Life Mastery Institute and achieved Dynamic Workplace certification through Kent Burden’s My Life Fitness. These trainings helped me refine my talents into a unique co-active coaching style and introduced me to tools that help me serve my clients. There is no one-size-fits-all program because true Mastery comes from within. Helping people reclaim the truth that is already inside them and to find the internal courage to close the gap between the life they are living and a life filled with true joy, well-being and purpose is my true service. I inspire people to take conscious control of their lives, to express themselves fully and find authentic happiness in whatever way is perfect for them.
In 2010, I founded BodyMindBusiness, LLC. Its purpose – to be a catalyst to awaken and shift teams, companies and individuals to become strong forces sparking greater corporate and collective consciousness. In late 2013, I was compelled to step away from BodyMindBusiness and bravely went inside the corporate world. By now I trusted my new way of being – being in alignment with my deep knowing was non-negotiable – in spite of my fears. It took all my courage to accept a position at one of the most polarizing companies in corporate America. I was an entrepreneur. Taking a job is considered failure to an entrepreneur and I feared potentially compromising (intentionally or not) my very being. Yet, my knowing was breathing me as I took deliberate inspired action.
It was apparent that everything I had experienced and accomplished to this point was divinely orchestrated to get me here. It finally mattered that I grew up on a farm in Southern Idaho; it mattered that I got a Masters in Agronomy; it mattered that I spent years working in quality control and later managed a Cereal Quality Lab; it mattered that I was a former traits licensee and seed partner of Monsanto; it mattered that I was living in Bozeman, MT; it mattered that my daughter could have life experiences with her grandparents; it equally mattered that I was a certified and experienced wellness and life coach. It was like all these pearls of my life were being strung together to mean and make something beautiful.
The next 3 years were a helluva ride and it’s where I met Kristin. I had the privilege of working alongside and coaching some of the most brilliant people on the planet. All of my gifts, talents and trainings were put to the test in a real-life situation that sometimes resembled boot camp and other times a playground. Our “corporate assignments” were completed in 2016 and we now breathe new life into BodyMindBusiness…or more accurately, it is breathing us as we claim a higher way to serve. We are willing to be known by what we have not known as yet. We know who we are in truth, we know what we are in truth and we know how we serve in truth…we claim this for you as well.
I look forward to connecting with you,
