Start Here


For the past nine years I have helped people and organizations create solutions for moving ahead with their ideas, overcoming obstacles, and identifying steps for moving forward.  I have a passion for helping others identify solutions to everyday problems, move forward with their ideas and in their life.  I want to help you get unstuck, move ahead,  and live the life you want.

As a mother of four children I have overcome many obstacles to achieve success.  I am currently navigating a mid-career transition and working on my MBA to help accomplish my career goals.  I have over seven years of experience counseling, mentoring, teaching, organization transformation and development experience.

For many years I was stuck living someone’s elses life.  I was stifled by fear and used the excuses of work and children to prevent me from developing myself, generating ideas, and moving forward with my goals.  I was stuck and didn’t know it.  Now it’s time to move forward and help others along the way.


Why Create & Move Forward?

Create & Move Forward is for anyone who wants to identify solutions to move their ideas and life forward.  This site is for you if:

  • Your like Suzy:  Suzy has some great ideas, isn’t sure how to move forward & needs support to implementing things into her daily life.
  • Your like Bob:  Bob has a great idea, but lacks the motivation to move ahead.
  • Your like Steve:  Steve thinks it’s not a good time, but it’s always a good time Steve.
  • Your like me:  You need some support, need help seeing the solutions that are around you, want to be more creative in your life, and want to start something new.


I counseled and mentored a lot of people in dire life situations.  I never met anyone who I couldn’t help identify the first three steps for moving forward.  There is ALWAYS opportunity!  Always.  Let’s find it and let’s move ahead to a great life.

  1. Thanks for a truly wonderful blog! I can relate to what you say about losing yourself. I’ve felt the same as I’ve worked through relationships until I found my ‘Home’ with my fiancé. Over the years small parts chip away and leave you less than whole. I’ve always wanted to write but having not done ‘great’ at school I put it to the back of my mind. I’m now ready! Just reading your Start Here page gives me inspiration! Thank you and I look forward to reading your posts!

      1. When I get the notification come up and that little noise to say someone has commented I am so happy! It means what I’ve wrote has made someone take the time to comment! That means the world to me and I’m happy I’ve made someone else feel the same!
