"If you don't like the path you're walking, start paving another one." - Dolly Parton 

Most my life felt like a struggle. It felt upstream, like I didn't fit in, and I always felt everything so very deeply. On the outside everything looked "fine". On the inside, for many years, nothing felt quite right. 

As a teen, I couldn't cope with life. A broken home broke my heart and fell victim to severe anxiety and panic attacks. I looked to drugs and alcohol as my escape from the reality of it all and to numb my pain.

The patterns continued and for years I found myself attracting the same lessons and same consequences over and over again. AND Let me tell you... it wasn't pretty. 


All while holding down a well put together professional persona. Wearing the mask of miss independent, a young successful woman who had it "all together". 


Deep down I was hurting, deep down I was lost,  deep down I didn't really know who I was or love the person that I saw looking back at me in the mirror  I carried so much shame, guilt, and resentment about my past choices and my negative experiences growing up. Deep down I wanted to give up on life,  I had nearly given up on myself. 

After waking up to the fact that I was the only one responsible for my life; I dove head first into transformational studies. I started small with books, at home study, small church  groups ect.


The next thing I knew I was leading those groups, mentoring, and running philanthropic events. I decided to get serious about "the work" and shortly after radically transforming my own life I decided to pursue my calling for coaching.


 During this time I hired some of the worlds most renowned mentors Mary Morrisey and Alexi Panos. The knowledge, wisdom, toolset, & formulas that I've gathered include some of the most transformative and results producing practices throughout history. 


 I myself have overcome what most would call " failures", traumas, self-sabotage, anxiety, low self-esteem, and toxic/abusive relationships.


 Being told I would never make it to college and that I would end up one of three places, jail, institutions, or death I  am a true survivor of myself.


I am a success story of how your life and all your results can be transformed by two things: the decision to show up for yourself (over and over again) and the power of renewing your mind.

Today, I am happily engaged, living out my passions and purpose, and living in more peace and alignment than ever before. No doubt, life still throws us all curve balls from time to time and the lessons continue.

Yet, now  living life from my CEO (compassionate, empowered, observer) perspective I am able to take on life with a renewed sense of power, passion, and purpose. I live to help my clients and audience to do the same!
