Raised in a very religious Roman Catholic family, Connie had a paradigm shift as an adult that put her on a lifelong path as a student of spirituality. She has belonged to several spiritual groups, including leading a Sylvia Browne study group, and was trained as a Practitioner of Hypnosis with emphasis in past life regression. After watching the movie The Secret, Connie attended her first James Arthur Ray seminar in January of 2007 with her husband Richard. Over the next three years, they participated in or volunteered at 27 James Arthur Ray seminars and events.

In preparation for a trip to Peru with a group led by Ray, Connie lost 80 lbs which she credits in part to what she learned from James and her goal of being in better physical shape before going to Peru.
Connie and her husband Richard are among the few people who were members of the World Wealth Society (WWS), Ray's inner circle, from its inception. They attended every event that he offered as either participants or volunteers. Connie has a unique insight into how his organization was run and has developed friendships with Ray's employees, other members of the WWS and participants in his events. She was trained in activities such as fire walking, breaking a board with your hand, and rebar bending using your throat, and coached participants through those activities at his events.
Connie has a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Santa Clara, and an A.A.S in Medical Laboratory Technology & Electron Microscopy. She has worked as a medical laboratory technician, chemical engineer, and a large computer systems sales person. Currently she and her husband are real estate brokers and own The Joys of Real Estate which operates under Keller Williams Realty. Connie resides in San Diego, CA, with her husband Richard and daughter, Erica.
