Hi! My name is Evelyn.
One of my favorite things to do is solve puzzles and figure things out. So I do Sudoku puzzles because I love the challenge of applying pure logic in determining the right answers. But my real puzzle-love is crosswords. Of course these are great for exercising the brain, keeping memory sharp, and expanding vocabulary. But they are so much more than that for me.
There is something about that exquisite moment—that flash of insight—when I figure out a clue and I know I’ve got the right answer. The Sunday newspaper puzzles offer dozens of such exhilarating moments. I’m positively addicted. And those moments are always sweeter when I’ve struggled a bit to figure them out. It’s just not as fun when it’s too easy. (Probably because of the Gate 28 Struggle energy in my Chart!)
Imagine my delight and fascination when I discovered Human Design. It’s a complex system of lots of little puzzle pieces that need to be understood individually—then put together into a coherent and meaningful whole picture about someone’s life. It’s the ultimate puzzler’s dream! AND it allows me to serve my fellow human beings (and humanity as a whole) in an exceptionally meaningful way… all while my puzzle-solving yaya’s get met. Life is good!
YOU found me for a reason...
There are many people around the globe who offer Human Design readings and courses. There must be something that has drawn you to this website, this page, and me. Maybe we could we be a good fit to work together?
I invite you to learn more about me and my qualifications below and on the other tabs above. If you continue to feel drawn to me and my work, then please reach out to learn more about how I can help you live a life that you LOVE!
Human Design Specialist Certification Training
Within a few months of being introduced to Human Design in 2008, I enrolled in Karen Curry’s (now Karen Curry Parker) intensive 8-month training course to study the system and learn how to give accurate, insightful and empowering Human Design readings. I am investigative by nature (confirmed by Human Design Chart---see My Chart tab above), and I dove in enthusiastically and began doing readings as soon as possible—so I could complement my training with lots of hands-on experience. I am certified at the highest levels that Karen offers (Quantum Human Design Level 4 and Quantum Alignment System Level 3) and I continue to expand my knowledge and skills by doing client Readings and studying intermediate and advanced course work in Human Design. This extensive training and experience allow me to provide the best and most accurate readings and guidance to you.
Health & Wellness Coaching Training
I completed a 12-month Health Coach Training program in early 2007, where I learned excellent coaching skills. In working with clients, I discovered that health coaching seemed to invariably lead back to life coaching and the need to coach the whole person. This combination of coaching and Human Design training enables me to help you improve your life as well as your well-being, with insights into your unique tendencies and specific ways to address behavioral issues.
Lifelong Interest in Health, Well-Being, and Personal Growth + Life Experience
My parents had a health-promotion business (a public Sauna with optional massage) when I was growing up, so I had an early introduction to the idea of caring for (and sweating the toxins out of!) the body. Over the years I’ve read many dozens of books, taken a wide mix of courses, and experimented on myself with a host of diet variations, exercise programs, fasting, mental attitude approaches, and understanding the spiritual connection of all living things. My focus has always remained on promoting and maintaining good health and supporting the body in healing itself.
My early awareness of self-improvement through health, plus my long-term interest in understanding and improving relationships, lead me to a variety of personal development work in the ‘80s and ‘90s. I continue this work as it provides an experiential base from which I learn about myself and through which I understand and coach others. Among my favorite authors and programs are Landmark Education courses, Dr. Wayne Dyer’s books, Mike Dooley's work, the Conversations with God series of books, and the Abraham-Hicks materials. My personal growth and development work has helped me to survive (and thrive!) despite divorce, financial setbacks, losing an ex-spouse to AIDS, my father to a heart attack, my step-father to an aneurysm, and my mother to cancer.
How My Human Design can benefit YOU
In addition to personal interests and background being well suited for Human Design and teaching, I’ve learned (through my Human Design chart) that my personality traits, intuition, and natural talents are a perfect combination for the work that I now do (and love doing).
Specifically, my natural abilities enable me to:
Guide you: I am a natural teacher, leader, and guide, which enables me to know others and help people like you manage your energies more efficiently and effectively.
Feel what you’re feeling: I am empathic (completely open Emotional Solar Plexus Center), which is very useful in helping you to reach for your goals and explaining your Human Design to you. I adjust my approach to accommodate where you are in the moment, otherwise—especially if you are emotional by Design—you might not hear me!
Understand you: I have consistent access to intuitive energy as defined in Human Design, plus I take people in at a soul level, so I sense deeply what’s going on with you personally. This ability to be present, aware, and ‘tuned in’ to who you truly are is a gift that helps me fully connect with you and guide you.
Communicate with you: My natural ability to synthesize, integrate, and communicate data means that I’m good at explaining complex systems—like your unique Human Design—in ways that are easy for you to understand. You’ll get detail-oriented, practical, step-by-step solutions for you to implement.
Help you feel at ease: Many people say my positive energy and enthusiasm put them at ease and help them feel more empowered after speaking with me.

A Very Personal Story of My Journey to 'Here and Now'
Could I leave a dying man?
It was definitely a tough decision. I really didn’t want to be married to him anymore, but I couldn’t abandon him either. He had been diagnosed with AIDS several years before. He was still alive and doing okay… at that time. But there was nothing at all for me in the marriage--there hadn’t been for easily five of our nine years married. And I just couldn’t do it anymore.
Fortunately, we had managed to maintain an amazingly good relationship, given the circumstances. And for that, I was grateful.
And incredibly, I consistently tested negative for HIV, for which I was (and still am) extraordinarily grateful.
Had I known then (1985) what I know now... about myself, life, and relationships... I would have had a MUCH easier time understanding the personality and relationship dynamics at play and a MUCH easier time making the decision I eventually made. It could have been SO MUCH LESS PAINFUL than it was.
Why was I having such a hard time letting go?
Why did I always bend over backwards to please others (especially him) and care so much about what others thought of me?
Why did I have such a hard time knowing who I was, what I wanted, and what I should do with my life?
These and so many more questions were finally answered when I came to understand myself, the world, and others through Human Design. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
I did move out that year. I divorced him the following year. And I paid him alimony, visited him often, and ensured he was taken care of until he passed in 1988.
In leaving the marriage but supporting him financially I had finally figured out a way to take care of myself and do what I needed to preserve my fledgling sense of “self” (and my sanity), without compromising my values and commitments. But I’d be lying if I told you it was an easy process.
Fast forward to a few years later when I found myself struggling with a career decision. I was a really hard worker, smart and dedicated, yet I would burn out after about two years in a job and then would want to take some time off. What was wrong with me? My peers didn’t seem to have this problem.
But the bigger problem was that I really didn’t know what I wanted to do next. I had enjoyed considerable success in the business world (and the government world before that), but there was something missing. I knew I was capable of a far different contribution than the executive career track I was on. I knew I wanted to be of service in a way that truly helped people at a deep level, but I had no idea how to do that.
I went through personality testing, career testing, aptitudes testing, and a 6-week career workshop. Mostly, they were useful. But they only gave me little pieces of the puzzle--not even enough to sense a direction to pursue. One career counselor told me to leave behind my exceptional attention to detail because it wouldn’t serve me as I moved up the corporate ladder. Probably true, but I was proud of my attention to detail and it had always served me well. Ouch. Okay, now what?
It might help you to know (as it would have helped ME to know by that point in my life) that I actually have STRUGGLE built into my Design as a human being. Well, that explains a lot!
But struggle in a Human Design Chart doesn’t have to manifest as struggle with the everyday things, with career, or relationships, or self-definition. The purpose of struggle in someone’s Chart is to help that person find the true meaning of life and what is specifically meaningful to them. I sure wish I had known that back then.
Fast forward again, to me stumbling through various attempts to start my own solo-preneur business. I had figured out enough to know I didn’t want to continue in the corporate world or the federal government. I took some time off. I looked into real estate investing. I learned about puts and calls in stock market investing. I dabbled in doing Quicken Consulting (accounting software), then QuickBooks Consulting (business accounting software), then Health Coaching. I knew I was getting closer, but I wasn’t there yet.
Then my mom entered the last stages of metastasized breast cancer. After being her full-time care-giver, followed by sorting out all the details of her estate (ever grateful for my attention to detail ;-)), I found myself peering at this weird-looking thing called a Human Design Chart, which I had requested a few months earlier but had not looked at until that moment.
The little bit I learned from the free report that came with my Chart was enough to rock my world. WOW.
Suddenly, so much of my life that hadn’t made any sense to me before, made sense! It was like a veil had been lifted, and I saw with clarity why I was the way I was and how I fit into the bigger picture of people and life.
I felt a tremendous sense of relief. And the more I learned about myself through Human Design, the deeper that relief and the more I realized that there was nothing wrong with me! It’s just how I’m designed. And there’s nothing to fix.
I began studying Human Design for my own benefit. I wanted to learn everything I could about myself (also predictable from my Chart: I am a Projector with an Open Identity Center and a 1/3 Profile—use the My Chart tab above to see my chart). I wanted that because it was helping me so much to understand myself, my life, and my relationships. It gave me answers that made sense, plus a strategy for moving forward in my life that felt right to me.
The more I learned, the more I was blown away. At that point I realized that there was nothing I wanted to do more in this world than to help people through Human Design—to give them the sense of relief, peace, direction and confidence that Human Design uniquely provides. For the first time in my life, I had no doubt about what I wanted to do.
So now, I work with people who are struggling to find answers—especially people facing big decisions or tough issues in their lives—and I give them clarity, peace, relief, self-confidence, and a reliable way for them to find their own answers… the answers that are specifically correct for THEM.
I am on a mission to help people recognize and embrace their own absolute magnificence—which is so easy to see through the gift of Human Design.

Here are a few more details about my background
My detail-oriented nature helped me to excel in (and enjoy!) school. I have a B.A. in French (my mother was French and I love the language) from Drake University, and two Master’s degrees.
My M.P.A. (Public Administration) from Drake University led to a fabulous four-year stint in Federal Government in Washington, DC (where I grew up). It started with my being one of 250 graduates selected from 950 applicants across the U.S. to participate in President Carter’s newly created two-year Presidential Management Internship Program in 1978—designed to bring new, qualified talent into Federal service.
Then I shifted gears to move into the private sector and earned my International M.B.A. in 1983 at INSEAD—in its intensive 10-month business degree program in Fontainebleau, France. (Have I mentioned that I love France?) INSEAD, the European Institute of Business Administration, was among the top five business schools in the world at that time, and it was a truly memorable experience.
Armed with my degrees, I was invited (which is very correct for my Projector Type) to run the Customer Care Department of the first non-wireline cellular telephone service company in the country—Cellular One of Washington/Baltimore—in early 1984. I was promoted to Vice President of Customer Care within six months of being hired. There I created a flagship customer service department copied by many subsequent cellular telephone companies. I also helped to define the data processing standards that enabled billing for the first inter-system cellular roaming.
After that, I helped create business management software for cellular telephone companies, co-founded a consulting firm serving cellular telephone companies, and provided consulting to several Latin American pager companies.
Then I gravitated to business and accounting management, becoming a certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor and providing an experienced business perspective in the set up and maintenance of QuickBooks accounting software for managing small businesses.
