Miriam Freeman met Virginia Satir in 1987 when she attended her month long process community in Crested Butte, CO, USA. This was the start of a life long exploration and application of the Satir Model. It was indeed a life changing experience that has provided a road map for her life for the last 34 years. She retired as a social work professor in 2012 after 30 years of university teaching and a total of 43 years as a social worker. In her retirement, in addition to Satir-based coaching, mentoring and training, she is a runner, reading tutor, antiracism advocate, drummer of traditional West African rhythms, member of a chorus, painter, and sometimes saxophone player. She is also a certified laughter yoga leader. She lives in the mountains of North Carolina in the US with her husband and they have two adult sons.
