I have always enjoyed sharing the written word with others – through my contributions to The Writer’s Group column at The Spectrum, St. George, Utah; 41 North, (Special Supplement to The Coeur d’Alene Press), Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; and my blog, The Vibrant Author, and my recently released book, “Healing Anorexia: Learning Acceptance by Embracing God’s Love” that is available on Amazon.com in both Kindle and Paperback versions.

My passion for health led me to establish Brio Health Coaching in 2017 as a way for me to help others gain control over their health, their body, their thoughts, and their lives. As a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I received my training from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I have studied a variety of dietary theories and implement practical lifestyle coaching methods.

I embrace holistic living, empowered through a close walk with God, and strive to share this with others through my books, one-on-one coaching, local cooking classes/demonstrations, retreats, lectures, and educational classes. When not working on new writing projects, I enjoy my family, participating in community events, playing golf, and other outdoor pursuits in the northern Idaho town where I currently reside.


The Vibrant Author is a blog that celebrates life! 

As a baby-boomer at the tail-end of the monumental generation that has defined world-changing cultural events, The Vibrant Author blog will feature several distinct columns of posts.  Those columns are:

The Reluctant Caregiver 

Blogs that discuss the challenges and everyday wonder that comes from providing care-giving for elderly parents.

Overcoming Adversity 

Blogs that offer specific strategies to help overcome situations in life that we encounter that are overwhelming to us; such as divorce, death, career changes, moving, loss of mobility, etc. 

Life Lessons from the Front 

Blogs that give hope and inspiration from God's perspective to those who are facing daily challenges.
