My Story

I grew up in the wealth and privilege of private schools, country clubs and manicured neighborhoods, yet I always sensed something was missing. I sought out aliveness and freedom in music, immersing myself in the hip hop and house music scenes of 90s Chicago. Then at 18, a pregnancy. By 22, the mother of two young children and living in a volatile and insecure environment. A year later, I was on my own, determined to create a new experience.

An ordained minister with a gift for weaving together the mystical and material, I served for many years as the CEO of Bodhi Center, an organization committed to personal transformation, collective awakening, conscious activism and community-building.

My work has taken me to stages around the world as a speaker and vocalist, including Agape International Spiritual Center, TEDx, Chicago Ideas, and the Havana Jazz Festival.

My path has included stops at some of the world’s leading global financial institutions and technology startups, training in several well-respected coaching methodologies, and experience as an entrepreneur – all culminating in my desire to challenge people to live fully alive.

I love nothing more than creating unexpected encounters that shake up what you thought you knew. This includes more than 300 live events since 2014, including a sold out monthly experience that brought together some of the country’s most prolific artists and thinkers, and thousands of hours consulting with and coaching teams and individuals in their pursuit of something greater.

I am raising four creative, brilliant children with a partner who is always willing to ask what more do we want to create.
