Many challenging and heartbreaking life circumstances give me a unique perspective to offer my clients. I am an abusive relationships survivor, I have navigated through a long and difficult divorce which resulted in my running a household, working full time in corporate America, and raising children simultaneously as a single mom for 14 years. I have dealt with family issues, the loss of a job and then finding a job multiple times, friends that came and went, family members passing away, and very low self-esteem.

I worked in Corporate America for 35+ years successfully leading teams, influencing peers, mentoring team members, interacting at all corporate levels (including C Levels), spearheading major projects, negotiating, and

navigating bureaucracy. Through these years, I developed strong relationships with management, peers, and team members that remain even today.  


I had to rebuild my life, rediscover myself and strengthen my confidence after my divorce. As I did, I learned how to find contentment and success and live my life filled with joy and peace. As a result, I walk in the freedom I was designed to have. My life verse is from Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”


I have taken all that I learned along with my unparalleled ability and deep care and compassion for women and began Precious Stones LifeCoach Group in New York’s Hudson Valley. As your Business and Life Management Coach, I commit to helping you achieve your 

destiny with the greatest confidence; discover and "Embrace Your True Value, Abilities, and Identity™"; identify and accomplish your goals as you "Focus, Grow and Flourish™".


My coaching style is inviting, understanding and encouraging with just the right amount of leadership, accountability, and discipline to help you focus on your priorities. My strong organizational, follow up and followthrough skills will help guide you through the Coaching process. My strong Christian faith provides the wisdom and perspective I draw upon to coach each woman.


I am a Board Certified Advanced Christian Life Coach. I am the Director and main facilitator for DivorceCare for Women. I facilitated a coed Divorce Recovery group in the past. I have completed Domestic Abuse training. I have completed Stress Management Training. I am a Facilitator for Family Foundations’ Ancient Paths and Empowering Relationships seminars which bring healing through the power of the Holy Spirit to those suffering who need freedom from past hurts and wounds. I have led and facilitated Bible studies for women helping them grow their Spiritual Foundations.


Married with 2 children, 2 step-children, and 1 grandchild, I grew up in and live in New York’s Hudson Valley. I love the beach, working on jigsaw puzzles, worship music, studying the Bible, and spending time with family and friends.
