And why on earth would you want to work with me?

My business coach had me do an exercise - ask several people to give me a few words they feel describes me.  Several words came up repeatedly.  Since “insane lunatic” might scare away polite company, we played around with a few other words that were given.  Those words were “funny” and “wise.”  We consulted the Font of all Word Wisdom,  the Thesaurus, and somehow in the midst of the word play, “Zany Sage” was born.  (“Amusing funny girl” just lacked any ring to it.)

We laughed, high-fived and immediately saw the potential for some serious fun with the branding.  So there you have it.  

About me. I was a life coach long before I knew what a coach was.  I attribute this in part to my parents referring to me as a “35-year-old-midget” while still in single digits. Through school and years later as a homeschool mom and parent of an ADHDer, I found people would seek me out for advice or a word of encouragement.

Because of my love for encouraging others, I’ve been a freelance writer for many years and have written for newspapers and magazines on a variety of topics.

This means I’ve had my nose in books. I especially love reading books on psychology, neurology, personal growth, spiritual topics, and a few novels tossed in here and there.

For those who are interested in creds, I am a graduate of Helena College (nursing) and Yavapai College (AGS) where I also earned advanced certification as a professional life coach.

As a writer, speaker and professional coach, it is my joy and privilege to encourage women on tapping into their most authentic self in order to find a deeply satisfying and joy filled life.

Jay and I have been married for 28 years. We have three extraordinary young adult children and love watching their journeys unfold.

My favorite pastimes include reading, shakin’ what my mama gave me in Zumba, being in nature and playing the piano.  Good coffee and conversation make my tail wag. 

Hi, I'm Theresa.  I like to help people. Sort of like Kwai Chang Caine but without the karate chops.
