About Carolyn


Carolyn’s Background


As a departmental Vice President for Southwest Airlines, Carolyn led over 6000 employees. Her focus was on exceptional customer service with a priority on optimum employee relations. A phrase you will often hear from Carolyn is, “It’s all about people!”


 “It was indeed my privilege to work for Southwest Airlines and its leadership for over thirteen years, where the emphasis was always on treating customers and employees with love and respect.”(Carolyn carries this same work ethic with her clients today.)


Before Southwest, she worked for an International Airline, training and staffing people in London and Mexico.


Carolyn lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  She loves the land, the   spirit and the culture.  “New Mexico has been home to me during many lifetimes…..I am at peace here.”





There is nothing as rewarding as being a parent”………


As a single Mom, Carolyn raised and is extremely close to her two beautiful daughters and their families.






Carolyn’s Coaching

“Life Coaching allows me to help others realize their awesome greatness….. the ‘I AM’ that resides within each of us.”


Carolyn’s professional coaching is an extraordinarily effective blend of: listening; intuitive understanding; creativity; support and business savvy. She can relate and empathize with challenges and transitions you are facing, whether it be: relationships; life work; spiritual fulfillment; health or a myriad of other issues.


I am not a psychologist… I am an Intuitive Spiritual Counselor and Coach. Passionate about your happiness, I intend to ask the right questions, guiding you to your highest and best outcome. Together, we will arrive at creative solutions. I will offer support as needed and enthusiastically acknowledge and applaud your achievements. Ultimately, I will release you to live the life of your dreams…”


Carolyn would say her strong suit is: helping people remember their awesome greatness so they can live their dreams. “It’s amazing how many people stay too long in a career or relationship for the wrong reasons, never allowing their inner truth to guide them.”



You were born with potential

You were born with goodness and trust

You were born with ideals and dreams

You were born with greatness

You were born with wings

You were not meant for crawling, so don’t

You have wings use them and fly

----Rumi, Thirteenth century poet
