Never in my wildest imagination, did I envision or wish for a life like the one I have. Who creates a life like this? One that requires an enormous amount of strength, flexibility, patience, intelligence, and awareness. A life lived on two continents while running two businesses which requires the ability to change course in any area of life where the energy demands it.
In 2012 when I started life over with my boys, I began a spiritual journey to heal many broken pieces of my soul and my ancestors’ souls. This led to a study of various energetic healing modalities which I incorporate in my work to help clients heal themselves and their families.
Shortly after I started over, my cousin James Privoznik 90th Infantry Division KIA 11 January 1945, showed up with several other family members, to guide me through many personal and professional changes. After writing James’ story in my book, Stories of the Lost, I walked in his footsteps in Europe in 2015. I flew his final burial flag over the Luxembourg Cemetery where he sleeps and walked in the woods where he was killed, listening to the whispers of the dead telling me to keep writing, keep teaching, and help people Find the Answers. Those experiences changed me forever, opened doors to new possibilities for my life, and introduced me to people who would help shift the course of life as I knew it.
After traveling to Europe twice in 2015 and having some intense, life changing war-related spiritual experiences, I was introduced to a Dutch man, Johan van Waart. Choosing something most people would not because we had no idea how a life together would work, we met, fell in love, and have endured many difficult trials when Johan was diagnosed with cancer a month after we met. We created a life on two continents, with three kids, two cats, and my expanding business. Part of this life is me becoming his caregiver, which was not in our initial plans.
My story is one of love, transformation, strength, choice, awareness, a deep desire to heal my soul no matter what it takes, self-love, and a continuous exploration of the past to create a better present and future.
I am a woman on a mission to help people Find the Answers to their family and military history stories. To take the road not traveled and create something different and exciting for their lives. This is accomplished through writing, online courses and workshops, live speaking events, personal facilitation, writing coaching, and intuitive business coaching.
