I have been helping creative entrepreneurs, social innovators, artists, writers and healers realize their big vision in a fun, intuitive and practical way for 17 years!
I grew up in the small town of Mystic, CT and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area after I finished my BA in Sociology at Vassar College in 1991. In 1993, I was certified as a yoga instructor and in 1994 I received an MA in Creation Spirituality from the Institute in Culture and Creation Spirituality at Holy Names College. Before starting Big Vision Consulting, I worked for nonprofits and socially responsible businesses like Mother Jones Magazine, Odwalla and Streetside Stories.
In 1998, Carol Lloyd trained me to teach career workshops based on her book, Creating a Life Worth Living. For the past 17 years I’ve coached hundreds of individuals to create work they love.
I began blogging in 2005 with the launch of my blog, Have Fun * Do Good. Since then, I’ve written for the Huffington Post, WEtv’s WE Volunteer blog, BlogHer, NetSquared, the Stanford Social Innovation Review Opinion Blog, WorldChanging, Sparked, and the Global Center for Cultural Entrepreneurship blog. In 2012, I created my second blog, VegCookbook Club, which I passed on to the VegCookbook Club community to continue running in late 2014.
I live in Oakland, CA with my husband, Adriano Bravo, who is an on location sound mixer. We have one cat, Dora, who thinks she is a dog.
