MISSION STATEMENT: "No woman will be left behind". You know, when you go to a party and you're sure that everyone in the room knows each other but you?  The feeling of being an outsider is painful and I am committed to creating an atmosphere of genuine inclusiveness where everyone feels welcome. After all, we are all there for the same basic reason and that is to feel connected to others for friendship and perhaps dating and importantly, to our community. Of course, having fun is a super important experience too!

 

Anyone that hosts events that I produce/organize are prepared to greet, make introductions and minimize the potential awkwardness of being in a new group and new situation.  This is very helpful for our shy/introverted friends.  One of my favorite sayings is "Feel free to come alone because you won't be for long!  We have all had a first time...remember?? I certainly remember mine shortly after I moved.

 

Being part of a community where you not only feel, but you know you belong, can really make a difference and that is what we are all about.

ABOUT ME:

In my previous life, I was a chiropractor in San Francisco practicing alternative medicine for ten years. Since then, I trained in many disciplines such as Non-Violent Communication, hypnosis, breast thermography, Neurolinguistic Programming, mediation & conflict resolution, Reiki and Reconnection Healing. I was recently trained as a Conscious Girlfriend Coach as well and will add those new skills to my tool bag.  My main goal at this time of life is to continue offering both online and in-person events and in addition to focus on group travel.

 

I will start hosting connection weekends at our home.  I envision these weekends as being a time to get to know one another in more intimate ways through honest and vulnerable sharing of our stories, wisdom and hearts combined with a whole lot of fun and relaxation! 

I live in Mission Viejo, CA with my girlfriend Melissa and two adorable puppies named Figgy and Olive (named after our trip to Greece) and Timmy the cat. I also have 10 wonderful god-kids and 21 lovely grand god-kids that add a special joy and depth to my life!

I am happily obsessed with playing pickleball, love boating, cooking and of course feeding people and experimenting in the kitchen!
