I cAN RELATE:
I've always been a change catalyst; always looking to learn, grow, and take action towards living the fullest and robust life God created me to live. I've been very successful in this ambitious endeavor and I love to teach and inspire others to discover their own "best life". I've gone from being insecure, timid, fearful, and unsure about myself, to living a life that is confident, courageous, and bold. I now live an authentic, honest life, with clarity and direction. I share not only what I have learned through my education as a coach, but what has worked for me in my life transformation. I understand the pain of rejection and being overlooked. I bought into living a facade for the acceptance of others. I have overcome the self-deprecation, and I now have self-respect and love for who I am. This has changed all of my relationships in beautiful ways. When I started taking the right steps outside of my comfort zone, I really began to blossom. I kept building brick upon brick: growing, maturing, and owning who God created me to be. Such freedom and satisfaction has replaced doubt and insecurity. I am whole, redeemed, and living a great big beautiful life! You absolutely can too; and I want to help YOU get to your great big beautiful life!
PATH TO COACHING:
I was coaching long before I realized it could be a profession. In 2010, I began the path toward continuing my education towards getting certification in life coaching. I went professional in January, 2013. I have not looked back!
