Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I have a BA in Communications from University of Iowa where I was a track scholarship for 100M hurdles. I come from a corporate background of working as an executive in Software as a Service where I handled gap analysis and implementations at customer sites all over the U.S. I also have a background in leading paradigm shifts in companies who have made acquisitions and again, doing process improvements by implementing best practices so both parent company and newly acquired company can streamline and improve. My favorite job aside from being a  professional water skier back in the day is owning and running my yoga studio, Soleil Lune Yoga Center, for the last 20 years. It is a gift to be able to watch people transform for the better and improve their lives inside and out.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working? Yoga of course! . I also lead a yoga teacher certification program as well as continuing education credit courses for existing yoga teachers so I enjoy traveling and leading those trainings.

I also like doing anything active and outdoors. Hiking in the mountains, surfing, swimming, biking, and trail running are my favorites. I have 6 kids and 6 grandkids so spending time with them is always a joy and absolute privilege. It is never a dull moment!

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

Superhero…that is a great question. I really don’t have any deep longing to be a superhero, but is there one that talks to animals? That would be pretty cool. Being able to read people’s minds would be a superpower I would love to have. I also remember watching a cartoon Super Friends when I was young and there were this brother/sister team called The Wonder Twins or something like that and they could shapeshift into anything and they had a pet monkey named Gleek. That sounds pretty cool, too.
