In scrolling through my calendar recently, I came across a few dates of note:
- May 2 is the 4th anniversary of when I officially established my practice although it’s been five years since I started taking clients.
- June marks the 1st anniversary of the (Sorta) Secret Sisterhood.
- And on a personal note, July will mark 10 years since we moved to Ann Arbor: how is that even possible?
Thinking back reminded me once again of how important community can be—and how we can build a positive community by being intentional about curating it and celebrating it.
So it’s time to celebrate you, and I’m planning some fun and games for the month of June—and of course, it’s only going to be fun if you join me—in person or online. And of course, there will be presents and (oooh! aaah!) fabulous prizes, and the more you participate, the better your chances to win them.

how to join in the fun
on the blog
For the month of June, I’ll be taking a look back at some of the highlights of the (Sorta) Secret Sisterhood’s year and posting some clips from our “Q+A with the Experts”—some very wise women who support women in peri/menopause through a variety of modalities, from conventional to alternative.
Take a listen, get inspired, and enter to win a prize by leaving a comment on the blog that week about your biggest Aha! moment in the clip.
I recognize that it can be difficult to comment publicly on what can still feel like a taboo topic, and if you’d rather submit your comment privately, see how to do so by email below.
If you are on my email list, you’ll be getting notified about each new blog post as usual—hit “reply” with your biggest Aha! moment in the shared clip for the week and enter to win a prize that way.

Know someone who could benefit from being on my email list? Invite her to join, and she’ll get an entry for signing up!
on social media
You’ll get 1 entry to win a prize by liking, 1 for commenting, 2 for sharing the post, or 3 for tagging 3 friends and encouraging them to join the conversation.
in the clubhouse
If you’re already in the clubhouse, get ready for really terrific bonus Q+As!
I’ve lined up some extra special experts, and in June, we’ll be holding one call a week rather than just the one for the month. Stay tuned for details….
If you’re not yet in the (Sorta) Secret Sisterhood, my online membership site for women 40+, hop on in! Your first month is FREE when you use coupon code TRIBE.
If you join during the month of June, you’ll get 3 entries to win a prize AND a beautiful bonus gift (hint: it has to do with what we sometimes do in the Sisterhood and what traditionally represents the first anniversary gift).
Throughout the month, I’ll be asking you to submit your questions via email, on the blog, on social media—about health coaching in general, about peri/menopause, and about my own health journey—and at the end of June, we’re going to flip the camera: I’ll be in the hotseat as someone interviews me for a change!
Each question gets you an entry to win a prize.
And we’ll be drawing the winning names on this call, so make sure to join and claim your prize.
make the connection
I’ve been awed and inspired by the people I’ve met on my journey in the past few years: some of them are now close friends and colleagues, others may never know the impact they had on me.
The lesson? It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and alone in our crazy world, whether you’re building a business or going through some sort of transition—and the antidote for me has been to consciously build a strong community, especially a strong community of wise, powerful women.
I hope you’ll join me in celebrating that community in June—and maybe find a way to celebrate your own village!
