Walking her talk, Gail rebounded after the death of her beloved husband Frank at the age of 51 to lung cancer. She worked for years as a hospice volunteer, helping patients live their passion as fully as possible until their last breath. She then assisted their families in their grieving process. Gail is also a mourning mentor and can be your companion through grief from any type of loss: death, divorce, relationship, job, or health. You can integrate your loss, reclaim yourself and even design a new direction with purpose and fulfillment. Make your present powerful while still honoring your past.

Applying heart and soul is Gail's approach to everything. Her presence, compassion, comfort, wisdom and joy permeate her life, her books, her coaching and her speaking engagements. Gail is a captivating speaker and an engaging workshop facilitator who empowers and motivates you to your full potential.

Gail means "joy", and her zest for life is apparent: she is curious; she is an explorer of the unknown; she is a world traveling gypsy who always follows her heart, and her laughter is infectious. She inspires her clients to also live wholeheartedly with more happiness and gratitude.

She has studied ancient wisdom from many cultures and for over 30 years has had a keen interest in symbols and their sacred meanings. To be a clear instrument for the Divine is her daily prayer.

Soul safaris are available to Africa and Greece with Gail.

Gail's first degree is in education and she holds a Master's of Science in education with a focus on communications. She has worked as a management consultant for the US Air Force, DuPont, Texas Instruments, and the Dallas Police Department, to name a few. She specialized in stress management, corporate and personal goal setting, and interpersonal communication skills. She has been an administrator at the Skyros Center, a course-based holistic holiday site in Greece. . Throughout her life she has been an inspiring teacher and an avid learner.

When she asked her Mom where her roots were (since she had attended 25 schools and lived in 15 states) Gail was told she was a potted plant and took her roots with her wherever she went. So after bungee-jumping off her own bridge, as a leap of faith into the next chapter of her life after Frank's death, she took her roots to Africa. There she reclaimed her sense of adventure. She lived and worked at a guest lodge in Namibia, Africa doing massage and energy work as a Reiki Master/Teacher, selling her artwork, and generally helping run the lodge for six years. Gail now lives on the Greek island of Paros with her one eyed cat Romeo, writing and coaching surrounded by orchids in her office by the sea.
