About Marie

During the course of my life on this planet, I have lived in five states: Illinois, Tennessee, Utah, Washington and currently, California. I have loved each place and am forever grateful for the gifts each dwelling has bestowed on me. The first six years of my life were spent in Chicago. I still remember falling down in the snow and only seeing the sky – the snow was so high, I couldn’t see anything else. What a thrill for a kid! I then moved to Memphis, to be raised by my "Granny". I loved Memphis and have definitely had my share of Elvis look-alike sightings. I also learned a tremendous amount of etiquette, for which I am still a stickler. I guess there is a part of me that is old fashioned.

After finishing high school, I moved back to Chicago, met my future husband and moved to Salt Lake City. I later received a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Language Pathology from the University of Utah, and an MBA from Westminster College in Salt Lake City. Upon graduation, I worked for an insurance company handling injury and automobile accidents. After my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer in late 2000 we decided to move to Sequim, Washington, making the move in September 2001. Bill crossed in May 2002.

The thirteen years spent in Washington was invaluable. Being there afforded me the opportunity to go through many wonderful shifts in my Being. I  immersed myself in the reshaping of my foundation through metaphysics, Buddhism, learning what my gifts are and how best to share these gifts with others Along the way I became a Journey Practitioner, which is a method designed to heal emotional and physical issues on a cellular level; an Evolutionary Astrologer; Past Life Regressionist; Life Coach and Tarot Reader In addition to these skills I also studied for four years with a Native Healer Learning some Native healing techniques - knowledge that has gotten lost on the road to modern society. I began each course of study initially to help myself. I had no intention of using them to help others. I was still looking for my path even though it was staring me in the face.  Over time, my life evolved into coaching others, and since I am a firm believer in being certified for whatever it is one does, I looked for and found an excellent coaching certification program receiving my Coaching Certification from Coach Training Alliance in 2005.

At that time, I reached a point in my own evolution where I felt qualified and called to offer the support and knowledge to others - which I was so fortunate to receive.

In the fall of 2014, I moved to Santa Rosa California - A wonderful town in Northern California.  It was time for the next chapter in my life’s journey to begin. It was time to build on the strong foundation I previously built – to add the next layer.

Each of us is on our own Hero’s Journey to "Know Thyself”. Where we are taken on this journey our conscious mind cannot know ahead of time, only our inner self knows. We only need to hear the call and say "Yes”.  Here’s to the journey.

My background is diverse and well rounded, so that I now offer this support and expertise to you.


Listen – I understand; I get it. . I have been exactly where you are now and I know how hard it is to make changes in our lives. I know what the road to healing looks like with all its’ curves, roadblocks and intersections. I know what a challenge it is to not know where you are going in life - much less how to get there. Here are some of the challenges I've faced.

I was severely bullied as a child and I healed the pain. When or how have you been bullied?

I was considered different – a geek and so lived part of my life being rejected. I healed this pain. Where or when have you ever been rejected?

I lived in a city where I was less than one tenth of one percent of the majority. I learned to feel free in this environment. When have you felt like a minority or out of place?

I have been verbally and physically abused in the past and I healed it. When have you been abused either verbally or physically?

I faced rejection due to marrying outside my race and I healed the pain of this. When have you been rejected for doing something out of family and society norms?

I have gone through the pain of losing my spouse. The pain of this has been healed. When have you lost someone to death?

I have been fired from a job and healed the pain of it. When have you been fired?

I have been evicted from my home. I healed the embarrassment and pain of it. Have you ever lost your home?

I have suffered from low self esteem, no boundaries, depression, not being able to speak my truth and feeling squashed by life. I healed the pain and anguish of them. When have you had low self esteem, been depressed, had no boundaries or not feeling able to speak your truth?

I could go on with the list – but I hope you get that I understand what you are going through, what ever the issue is – you can heal – I did and I am no different than you...

You will get the most value from selecting me as your astrologer and coach when at least one of several things are in place.

  • You have a vision or want to create a vision of what your future could be
  • You are ready to learn what your life’s blueprint is
  • You are ready to act to create the life your soul wishes for you to live.
