Dr. Simington frequently shares her vision which began to take root some years after the tragic death of her son.
“My Vision is to let the world know that growth and transformation are possible and attainable, and that they can be each person’s reality. My Vision is to offer these possibilities to all who choose them, regardless of where they live, what culture they are from, or what religion they profess. During my early years of grief, I desperately sought healing from many teachers and from many sources. Today I feel honored to lead others along pathways that provide the resources they need to mend broken hearts and fractured souls, so they too can rekindle their inner flames and live to their greatest personal and professional potential.”
