I look forward to hearing about what resonates with you, helps you to become more liberated, and to present the beautiful gift of yourself to the world.

Sending you an abundance of light, love, peace, and positivity. Thank you so much in advance for your support and joining me in the journey of becoming more authentic.

I have known Dr. Gordon for three years now and in this short time frame she has been a true inspiration to me. As a new teacher she took me under her wing and helped me in all areas of the classroom. She also encouraged me when I was ready to give up. I am so grateful to have worked closely with her for 2 years as my leader/coworker. I honestly don’t think I would be the teacher I am today if I didn’t have her in my corner. I am forever grateful for her kindness, patience, motivation and expertise.
