About Ms. Beth

I am one of those people... you know... the weird ones.

I was born on the day of the "Convincing Storyteller".

As a child of 4 years old, I was a visionary and creative.

Throughout my life, I have held one particular vision in mind. While it did come in and out of focus, my childhood vision was a steady companion, a calling and life force. As my story has evolved so has the clarity and deepening integration of this indwelling wise leader. Nurtured by a loving family and healed by an attunement with my creator; I grew through the ebb and flow of life, love, trauma, loss, compassion courage and resilience.




Provide creative thought leadership in navigating difficulties associated with trauma, adversity and other unsolved-problems in education, criminal justice and health care in the KC metro community.

Speak out about the reality of white privilege and create opportunities for other white people to unpack their privilege; that we may begin to uproot the trauma of white supremacy and institutionalized racism.

I am driven to create sensory rich learning experience that foster transformational learning and growth. I believe that we are imbued with an intrinsic power to heal ourselves and each other. I know that we are inextricably connected and neuroscience backs me up. Breathing Room KC programs are designed to rehumanize us all, while deepening our ability to skillfully navigate the complexities of human life. Mindfulness and creativity are at the core of all my work in trauma informed care and resilience culture. 

Beginning in July of 2018, I will be seeking new opportunities to collaborate with organizations who want more reliably resilient individuals and teams working together to build a more compassionate and effective story of service.


Everyone is on their own journey, but it just so happens that our individual paths are constantly intersecting with those around us. Taking an integrated, playful approach is sure to deepen our enjoyment and efficacy.
