Mindy became the first American female executive to work for a British bank in Dubai, responsible for Credit and Marketing for nine countries in the Middle East. In the 80s, in what was still considered a “man’s world,” she earned a BS in biology and an MBA in finance, paving the way for women in international business by opening the first office for a division of Baker International in Singapore, responsible for agents covering the Pacific Rim as far west as India and Thailand. She made her first trip to China in 1983.
Her journey later brought her back to the United States, where she became a major Fortune 500 player and played a pivotal role in the area of mergers and acquisitions in Charlotte, North Carolina, which became the second largest banking center in the nation.
But the days were not all bright. Her son became entrenched in a heroin addiction. Mindy’s focus turned, and she began to center her personal life around understanding addiction and addictive illness. She became an avid student of alternative healing modalities, studying with indigenous peoples worldwide to become a practitioner of energy and spiritual medicine. She now holds certification from the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine in Navigating the Soul’s Journey, is a certified Spiritual Counselor, and is certified in numerous healing systems including Reiki, ThetaHealing, and Reconnective Healing.
While her son lost his battle with heroin, the story did not end there. What followed was a fascinating and transformational journey of healing together—mother and son. The details of this healing process appear in her new book, The Hero in Heroin: A Mother and Son’s Journey on Both Sides of the Veil. The experiences recounted in her book helped her to develop the consciousness and content of the In the Now Moment transformational healing work she facilitates today.
All of her struggles, achievements, and experiences have brought Mindy to her life’s work of helping people navigate change and cross over the edge between what is and what can be. She has come to the edge of herself, and wants to help you do the same. One step at a time.
