My True Story.. An Amazon Hot New Release.. Available Now

Hi friends! I’m excited to share that my memoir is out in paperback!
Click here : )
Audio and digital versions in process and coming soon.

Here’s what my memoir is about:

“Scarred by disability.
Derailed by ADHD.
Believing herself broken and weak.
The odds were certainly stacked against Kay, walking all by herself from one side of England to the other.
Here’s the interesting thing: those elements which Kay perceived as liabilities became assets.
Fuel for empowerment.
And the trek was only the beginning.

Come on a journey of discovery..

Waking Up is the true story of a woman who used to need a wheelchair and couldn’t use her hands almost at all.
The book tells how she grew into an artist, creator and adventurer.
Give yourself permission to be caught up in the magic… in cheering for Kay, you just may end up cheering for yourself.”

It’s a #3 Hot New Release in Amazon’s General England Travel Guides category! THANK YOU!!

In my 30+ year career as a teacher and coach I have guided groups and individuals to envision and build their life how they want it.

I’ve learned to trust myself in all things – and now I support others through their transformation.

I am glad our paths have crossed!
Glad to be in this beautiful world with you.

Hi friends!! I did it!!
For 3 weeks in May 2023 I solo hiked across England’s Coast to Coast Path –
a big deal when 12 years ago I needed a wheelchair to go more than a few steps!
I hiked through 3 National Parks and some of the most rugged and beautiful country in the world.
I learned LOTS about myself and the world in training and hiking the path!
