3 Random Facts:

  1. I met my husband at the finish line of a trail race –we still run the same race every year (12 years and counting!)
  2. I have two children, a boy and a girl – and also a dog – who remind me daily about what really matters
  3. Playing with “perspectives” is one of my favorite tools in coaching – it’s amazing what you can learn about a situation when you take a different view
