I’ve been happily married to my sweetie, Shayne, for 20 years. We moved around ALOT during that time, and decided in 2016 to move to Roanoke, Virginia and settle down for a while.
We didn’t have children, but we dote on our stinky-breathed, blind and terminally lazy poodle, Sadie. She is an amazing reminder about staying in the moment, accepting your nature with love and showing your belly when feeling secure.
I left home at 18 and lived quite the nomadic life for the next 29 years. I saw a lot, did a lot and learned no matter where you go, you can’t hide from yourself, so I stopped trying.
I began looking at myself, honestly and with purpose.
In 2015, at a Divine Love Conference where I was vending at as a jeweler, I met my Human Design chart and my life changed in a blink of an eye. It made a profound impact on how I live my life and make decisions as my TRUE self, instead of from my mind.
Two main themes in my jewelry are based on Tribal and Individual energy…these are the most predominant energies I carry and I explore that from a creative perspective.
I’ve always believed that each one of us is here to sing our particular note in this universal symphony of life…but the trick is discovering what the hell that note is.
I believe my work as a jewelry designer helps build awareness of our unique signature of life one person at a time, and my passion as a Human Design guide for others that find their way into my network is my life’s calling.
Know Thyself. Everything else falls into place when you find refuge in yourself.
Why I Am A Guide…
Becoming a certified Living Your Design Guide in the Human Design system has been one of the greatest joys of my life, because it grants me the privilidge of playing on TEAM YOU for a while.
Becoming you is not easy. It’s simple, but not easy.
I concentrate on the LIVING part of Human Design, and that means the day-to-day experiences and challenges one goes through when trying to uncouple from NOT-Self conditioning.
My role is to share with you what I am learning about living a life that is expansive and supportive, filled with satisfaction, success, peace and surprise depending on how YOU are designed to live.
