Discovering Inner and Outer Landscapes


Thank you for your time and for your curiosity to discover more about yourself and what it means to be human during this moment on our planet. For many of us, a split has occurred between our natural world and our inner landscapes. Many believe this is an inevitable aspect of life today. But after more than two decades of tracking wildlife, I understand that this fragmentation from our selves, family, ancestors, and nature is not innate to being human.

Rather, to be human is to be connected. Connected to each other, to our non-human world, and to a vocation that fills us and benefits the greater good. Each of one of us has the skills, senses, and ability to listen deeply and respond to what we hear. My tracking journey has helped me to trust my body and my intuition. When following an animal, it is essential that I am in my senses not my thinking brain. Every time I try to override my sensory perception and “think” my way towards an animal, I inevitably botch it up. I literally cannot see the tracks.

No one was more astounded than me when I realized that my internal landscapes of trauma, grief, and ego hindered my ability to trust myself and therefore my ability to make healthy decisions. Once I understood that there is no separation between my internal and external landscapes, I saw old patterns that once protected me were a hindrance.

When I uprooted those entrenched behaviors, my ability to track wildlife increased. I could see clear connections between the animals and their living landscape. My relationships with home, ecology, and the non-human world became vibrant, reciprocal, and diverse. As did my relationships with work, friends, and my husband. Turns out the skills I use to track a bear, are pretty similar to the skills necessary to track down funding for a project. Who knew?

Sometimes people ask me, “What do you do?” and cheekily I answer, “I help people slow down so that they can listen.”

Essentially this is true, but day to day, I get to work on diverse projects that integrate tracking, conservation, and social justice. I am adjunct faculty at my local college and independently teach tracking classes. My own tracking journey has led me to learn indigenous knowledge from local California and North American tribes as well as the KomaniSan Bushmen in the Kalahari. With permission from these tribes, I am able to bridge this wisdom into mainstream conservation to help create regenerative and resilient habitats.

I also work one on one with people to unravel their feelings of separation and build connection. While I have no intention of creating a world of trackers, I do hope to help folks track their way towards their passions, self love, and curiosity about the world with the assistance of our non-human neighbors.

My specialties include working with:


Supporting life transitions


Recognizing and release trauma from the body


Building connection to the outdoors


Building observation and awareness skills


Reading body language


Pattern literacy


Building resiliency

What Clients Say

“The location was beyond beautiful, the ranch, our daily work, the coaching, the animals, the food, the whole experience = 10/10 for me. Being able to circle with such wisdom, love, and support was perfection for me. Since returning from our retreat, I have felt at peace simply being, an absence of getting caught up in stories about what I need to do or what I should do. I have been gentle and centered on what I need. I have allowed myself to rest. I have experienced a great ease and sense of trust in knowing that things will reveal themselves in due time. There is no need for me to push. I can let go. All of this has allowed me to experience a level of contentment that I find rejuvenating and sustaining. Thank you!”

“I discovered more about “I see you” and “We see you ” and having that met by the group and Koelle was very healing . Being in that much open space, Meghan said it best ” there is nowhere to hide, This helped me dive deep into places that needed healing. I was in a lot of fear to leave my home and all my comforts to go on this adventure. I’m really proud of myself that I went and fully participated. I did this because I feel SAFE in the presence of Koelle , Meghan and Patrick.  The chance to work through blocked emotions, the hike’s in nature, working with horses, beautiful people who worked at the ranch, the beautiful place, being surrounded by strong healthy women I admire…. I take it all with me. I need it all!! I will carry this experience with me wherever I go.”

“I am walking away with a better sense of being in true relationship with others, from humans and ants to field grasses and trees, I have a better grasp on being with what is in this world and not separating myself with others. No one is there for just one thing and everyone in our retreat group really rallied around each other. I learned so much from my fellow participants. Watching someone else do the work not only gave my system time to process, it also allowed me to reflect from a different point of view. The participation and willingness of everyone to engage in a personal and vulnerable way gave us all a strong sense of community. My least favorite part of the retreat, and probably the most important part of any personal development experience, was going home . . . and knowing the practice of implementing the insights I gained now lay ahead.”
