How can I help you?  As part of the YourTango Experts team since August 2009, I've helped our audience grow to millions of readers each month, and specifically helped our YourTango experts learn and grow with us.

As an internationally known Mars Venus Success Coach, I guide people in discovering what it is they really want out of life, relationships and business, and then help them figure out how to get it. I'm also a Prepare-Enrich couples mentor, an NLP practitioner, a workshop leader, public speaker, writer, and a contributing author to "Vibrant Women's Wisdom", a collection of women's stories about surviving and thriving through darkest and brightest hours.

I have also been a trainer for Mars Venus Life, Relationship, Business and Executive Coaches worldwide and continue as an active member of the Coalition for Couples, Family and Marriage Education (Smart Marriages).

And my most personally fulfilling achievement is being married for 38 years with two daughters.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

My own journey to Mars Venus began in the mid 90s during a particularly challenging phase of my marriage. Searching for some help and answers, I stumbled across Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus and my life has never been the same. After dog-earing every Mars Venus book written since then, I discovered the opportunity to share this life-changing information with others. It was like a thunderbolt, and I instantly knew relationship education was my life's calling.

In February 1998, I attended my first training with John Gray to be certified as a workshop facilitator on personal relationship skills for couples and singles. My 32-year career in a very ‘Martian' aerospace industry at the Kennedy Space Center prepared me to help women and men apply relationship skills in their careers, so I became certified to present Mars Venus workplace seminars as well. In fact, Dr. Gray acknowledges me in his book “Mars and Venus in the Workplace” (aka “How to Get What You Want At Work”) for contributing valuable experience and feedback.

Since the ‘90s, I've shared Mars and Venus concepts through workshops held in many venues inclusive of cruise ships, resorts, churches, and with professional women's organizations. I've also written articles on the Mars Venus and other web sites and made guest appearances on radio shows to discuss Mars and Venus concepts. In the past 16 years as a workshop leader and coach, I've had the privilege to work with hundreds of men and women from all over the world with every imaginable relationship concern — including issues on dating, commitment, marriage, infidelity, starting over after a loss, parenting, workplace issues, and achieving personal success.

Most importantly, my own marriage is thriving as we celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary this year. Learning and applying the Mars Venus principles was a significant factor in our ability to achieve this milestone. We are also very proud of our two daughters, who are now happy and successful adults. Their experiences, both in the workplace and in the dating and relationship realms, have benefited greatly from having their own “private” coach!

My journey is a testament to Dr. Gray's book “How to Get What You Want and Want What You Have”. When you work with me via workshops/seminars or coaching, you'll find warm, open-minded, and empathetic support; understanding without judgment or reprisal; and someone with a practical and down-to-earth approach to inspire you to discover your own highest potential in all areas of your life. Teaching others how to apply Dr. Gray's principles to their own relationships is the sweetest work in the universe.
