About Me

For 10 years, I’ve devoted my work to helping transformational experts express their creativity and stand in their value and get paid what they’re worth. My superpower is to ‘articulate the invisible’ and to ‘see the gap’ in what’s missing and what’s needed.

I rebranded to Goddess55 Publishing when I decided to get back to my purpose. I’d been in publishing for 30+ years, and put it on the backburner, working only with private clients. 

But, I ‘retired’ from business coaching so I could dedicate my efforts 100% on book mentoring and publishing. I know how painful it is to have a vision but not the right support to help make it a reality.

I am that person. I’ve always had a start to finish approach, with many skills and talents to back it up. I’m a writer, a ghostwriter, and I’ve always said that editing is my soul gift – but it’s not very sexy now is it?

I’m dedicated to providing premium services, including developmental editing and ghostwriting, formatting and design, and help with publishing on Amazon – or having books printed the traditional way – at a print house – to sell at conferences and events. 

I’ve got 30+ years of publishing experience, including books, magazines, newspapers and newsletters. At its essence, Goddess55 was designed to help women ‘of a certain age’ share their learned and earned wisdom with 100,000 people, and create recurring income for life!

Turn Your Wisdom Into Assets.

You get to a certain stage where trying to learn more becomes counterintuitive and self sabotaging… when you look around and realize your wisdom is your most valuable asset. You don’t need another course, or marketing tactic… I’mhere to hold you as powerful when you can’t do that for yourself… to bring your wisdom to the forefront so it’s enough and there’s nothing to prove… you are a Goddess with so much to give. Let’s get you PAID for that wisdom, without having to do more or ‘earn your keep’… after all, this is your purpose and you have nothing more to prove!

While working with Carol Ann, I not only published my first book, I realized quantum leaps in my personal growth.

I started working with Carol Ann to write the book I’d wanted to write for more than 15 years. I am so excited that my book was published in less than 6 months while working with her! I then worked with Carol Ann in her mentorship program. I have worked with plenty of coaches and mentors before, both in my personal and in my professional life. However, Carol Ann’s mentorship style guided me to get better and quicker results. Finally, her expertise enabled me to feel empowered as I moved into growing my practice.
