I was settling, unfulfilled and frankly quite angry at myself.
I’ve always chosen being safe and comfortable over being brave. For example, going to the college my best friend chose just to stay in my comfort zone, not speaking up for myself when I felt disrespected or going after the unfulfilling job for security. Because of my need to feel comfortable I settled, I was taken advantage of and I dealt with years of depression.
I didn’t trust myself. I was angry for not going after I wanted. After several years of working, I realized that I was living a life that I didn’t love. I was settling big-time from my relationships to the career I had chosen. And the thing is, at the time, I didn’t think I deserved better.
I wasn’t doing what I wanted and instead did all the “right” things that you’re ” supposed” to do and that felt “safe” but I was miserable. And as a result, I kind of gave up on myself. I was hopeless and just going with the flow of life.
I felt like I did everything as planned. I went to school, got a good-paying job, bought a home and was doing all the things I thought were the path to success.
I did what everyone told me was the “right way” and was reaching all my goals with ease. But I was unfulfilled, stressed and felt lost. I felt there had to be more to life than working, going home, watching tv and repeat day by day. I was unhappy with the life that I ultimately created.
Then, I decided it was up to me if I wanted things to be different.
So I began to learn about myself and discover what I really wanted. I started to learn how to use my voice and ended unhealthy relationships. I also got a new job and began learning everything I could about personal development. I took classes, did workshops, read books, listened to podcasts, anything I could get my hands on. I began spending my time intentionally and doing the things I REALLY wanted to do.
It was then that I decided to take a chance on myself and do something I had always wanted but was too afraid to do, I went to get my certification as a professional coach. It wasn’t like anything I had ever done career-wise nor did it fit in a perfect box like everything else I had done but I decided to trust myself and do it. And I loved it! Leading me to begin my own coaching business and on a journey of being brave.
No more ” should do” , what society says is “right” or what is expected of me. No more limits, no more faking. Everyday is and continues to be an opportunity to be brave, use my voice and go after what I want. And I want the same for you. Because life is one of our greatest gifts and it is best lived fully and authentically.
Life is enjoying, laughing, growing and loving every minute!

LOVE your life. You only get one shot. Live it fiercely and fully.
LOVE others. Love is the strongest thing that we can choose and what unites us. Know that here you don’t have to do it alone.
If you have gone through life following the rules and doing things the “safe” way then this is the place for you.
You have found that doing life the way it “should be ” has left you unfulfilled and craving deeper meaning in life. You want more fulfillment and joy in your life but by following other’s rules all this time you have found yourself lost and confused.
I’m here with the purpose of supporting you on your journey to loving yourself and creating a life you love.
I do this because life is one of our greatest gifts. Too often we settle and give up on ourselves. I am here to support you in living a fully expressed, abundant and fulfilling life.
Are you tired of following the “rules” and playing it “safe”?
The short version is.. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a Bachelors Degree in Business from the University of Missouri.
Upon graduating I immediately began working as a caseworker and later a counselor for people with disabilities with the government. A few years I later received my Master’s Degree in Social Work.
With a love for personal development, growth and helping others I decided to get my coaching certification from the Institue for Professional Excellence in Coaching(IPEC) and begin a coaching business. Read above for my story.
