Fall madly in love with you!


Are you dreading Valentine's Day? I understand how that feels. I've spent more than one Valentine's Day alone. And I used to hate it.

But after spending many years as a single person, I have grown to see Valentine’s Day as a day for celebrating and sharing love in all its forms…love for my kids, for my neighbours, for my friends, for myself. 

So as my Valentine’s gift to you, I invite you to join me on Tuesday, February 13 at 7:00 pm EST for a free online masterclass, where you’ll discover how to love and support yourself, enjoy Valentine’s day as a single person, and feel empowered to live the life you choose.

interview on the Kim Pagano show!


Kim Pagano interviewed me for her radio show on January 3! The topic was how to recover from challenges and feel inspired, in light of the chapter I've written for Unwavering Strength, a terrific book due out on Amazon on February 24. I talked about my first husband's death from cancer and my mother's diagnosis of Alzheimer's.


To listen to the interview, check out the Kim Pagano Show website (January 3rd, afternoon show...I'm the 3rd interviewee at around 41:00).
