Within Origins of Peace, I am referred to as a Creative Peace Coach, using creativity to help my clients find peace of mind through goal setting and accountability.

We equip our clients to challenge the norm, dismiss limiting beliefs, and reframe problems as opportunities to create a new way forward.

While the country was in lockdown due to uncertainty about COVID-19, many people began purchasing houseplants as a way to cleanse the air in their homes and to liven up their space. I was no exception to this trend. As a way to “dress up” my houseplants, I began creating Planters as a unique home decor item to display my houseplants in a fun and creative way. After posting a few pictures online, I received hundreds of requests from all around the country. I scaled my company to include this unique home decor item and now I teach others how to create their own Planters in our Paint & Plant Workshops.

PlanterswithSOUL! has become my number one service for teambuilding to improve social wellness and authentic expression. This service is great for building connection, authenticity and collaboration amongst attendees.

CREATE! Empowerment Session.

During a season of uncertainty, I experienced divorce, cancer and job loss all within a 6-month time period. This led to the creation of Origins of Peace, as well as the structure for my signature teambuilding service, CREATE!

This workshop is offered in individual and group sessions.
