    With Purpose and Value




Helping people successfully create, refine and add value to Wellness and Spa businesses. 

Spa and Wellness assets extend massively beyond promotional marketability and stand-alone amenities. They represent important pillars of health and well-being that heighten guest experiences and advance the business of tomorrow.

My work identifies important future market turns, emerging demand generators, and new program structures. I create unparalleled, strategic and financial models for superior wellness outcomes with premium integrations. Personal health is a cornerstone in today’s changing world, and the landscape of well-being is increasingly more diverse and essential.

Bringing 25 years of industry experience to my work, I have been consulting since 2001. Recognized for my dedication, leadership, and successful track record. I have been predicting leading shifts in the spa and wellness market since 2004, identifying the rise of organics, evolving social nuances and the important intersections between mind, body and consciousness with science, technology and spirituality.

Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.


 Rising Regional & Recreational Tourism

National Park tourism has been on the rise for the last several years. As we face ongoing challenges and travel restrictions related to COVID-19, many people are choosing road trips over airports.

This explains the mild upturn in tourism we are seeing in select markets over the summer. As people yearn to get outside and experience a variety of activities, recreation and time in nature, this is a trend we can expect to be long-lasting well into the future.

I reviewed the challenges and benefits of this growth last year in my article Overtourism and Third Tier Market Growth
