Co-Editor of PsychoSpiritual
Blaze is a Fire-Starter, Illuminator, and Torchbearer. As a Certified Transformational Life and Business Coach, she is committed to helping women Blaze their Brilliant Path and manifest a vision of a life and business that align with them.
Blaze excelled for twenty years in the fast-paced world of a Fortune 100 company; where she created a ‘wildly successful’ career. In 2003 she found herself face-to-face with thyroid cancer. Using her illness as a catalyst, she “blazed” her own brilliant path to recovery and wholeness.
Blaze transferred her diverse skills from the corporate environment to serve as an Executive Director for a nonprofit dedicated to using writing to heal. So began the journey of merging her professional skills with her more creative gifts. She is the author of two books of poetry and earned a certificate in journal facilitation to inspire others to use words for creative self-expression, healing, and transformation.
Following her growing desire to mentor and empower others, Blaze earned life coaching certificates from Martha Beck and from the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology. She is also a Certified Hypnotherapist, offering intuitive hypnotherapy as a part of her practice to help others be their best selves. As a guest lecturer for the Ernst & Young Leadership Seminar at California State University, Northridge, she uses her creative, and sassy leadership style to assist others to discover their essence, outline their values, and create a vision for their future as leaders in the world.
Blaze is passionate about coaching women to become the person they’ve always wanted to be and inspiring them to step into their own personal business fire. She believes that each person has the opportunity to change the world as they reconnect to their own brilliant passion, purpose, and power.
