I credit many accomplished, successful human beings with shaping my life. First and foremost was my Mother, followed by Napoleon Hill, Anthony Robbins, Louise Hay, Dr.Wayne Dyer, Walt Whitman, John Keats, Marc Chagall, Maya Angelou, Bella Abzug, Shirley McClaine, Barbra Streisand, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Peggy McColl, Henry David Thoreau, Jeff Keller, Hillary Clinton, Dr.Martin Luther King Jr., and Nelson Mandela to name a few.
The single most defining event in my life was the untimely death of my Mother when I was 10 years old. At the age of 40, I legally changed my surname to honor the life of my mother, Jane Marilyn Rose. When my mother died, I had the good fortune to be helped by professionals in the area of psychological services. This help lead me to my passion in life, providing service to others to reach transformational change. I saw firsthand the transformative life experiences of myself and others through guided service.
I am passionate about experiencing all that life has to offer. I am an enthusiastic, advanced PADI certified scuba diver logging more than 110 dives, including night dives and Nitrox diving. I've flown Cessna planes, parasailed, jet skied, snow skied, and swam with stingrays. As a lifelong New Yorker, I love all the culture New York has to offer. I love the theater, movies from all eras, reading, and most of all, parenting my twin boys. I am an accomplished artist, published poet and I am currently penning my first book.
