Thank you very much for visiting. My coaching and meditation instruction is inspired by my own mindfulness practice and Zen Buddhist faith, a path I began almost a decade ago. I've undergone extensive training and earned certification via Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach's Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program (MMTCP) and completed a course of study in Presence-Based Coaching™.
I'm fortunate to be a successful entrepreneur, innovator, writer, and speaker in the health and wellness space. My business experience includes serving as a trusted advisor to Fortune 50 companies, national foundations, and advocacy organizations, leading a prominent consulting firm, founding one of the world's first alcohol-free bars and a tech-enabled informatics platform, and serving on several boards.
I've been quoted by national media outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post , appeared on multiple cable news programs, and spoken at dozens of conferences including those for the American Medical Association and the Commonwealth Fund.
In addition to serving on the boards of Operation Smile, the Zen Center of Denver, Health365 (which I chaired), and Chinese Children Adoption International, I was recently appointed by Governor Jared Polis to Colorado's Natural Medicine Advisory Board, the body charged with making recommendations to implement safe, equitable access to certain psychedelic medicines in the state.
I earned my undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College and law degree from the University of Virginia. I live just outside of Denver, Colorado with my precious family and two shih-poos.
Let's explore what it means to show up for our lives together.
