My life and work are focused on guiding people back to their Gift-to the essence of their uniqueness. Grounded in an awareness of their talent, I guide individuals to create careers based on offering the best of themselves in organizations to create positive shifts in our communities.

Throughout my career, I’ve created systems that guide individuals to lead and flourish in their work.  With the radical changes in our world, traditional organizations and approaches to work are crumbling. Individuals are seeking opportunities to create lives of meaning and impact engaged in work they love–and in ways that support balanced lives. HBeS is “the place” to come when you or your employees are ready to create a new relationship to work. By addressing the desire of individuals to be satisfied and fulfilled in their contribution and organizations to have the right person doing the right work, HBeS addresses the fundamental needs to promote more successful societal outcomes.

Everyone wants to do what they love and do it in a way that is satisfying and has impact. By making these services available in an online retail model, The Human Being Store is the answer for individuals and organizations alike.

My passion is supporting individuals in feeling their best as they move through life’s transitions. Be it a new job, a change in location or family, every one of us experiences transitions. I love working with people to ensure they remain, or get healthy, to best move through life shifts with ease allowing people to create success as a result of the experience. My guidance is based on my own journey navigating through a health crisis and how it shaped my work and career. I am a certified Integrative Nutritional Coach and bring that knowledge into my sessions with HBeS clients.
