A executive life coach, entrepreneur, wellness-aficionado dedicated to supporting you to become the person you most want to be.
A girl born, adopted, and raised in Columbus, Ohio, with passion to serve and a yearning to go against the grain, I’m proud to have created a private coaching firm to inspire others to take charge of their lives.
Through private coaching, workshops, and exclusive retreats, I help people like you dream big and match it up with goals, projects, and meaningful action to get results.
One of ThE things I’m often asked is:
“How did you get into all of this?”
I’ve always been fascinated with human optimization and purpose. Self-help books, coaches, therapy, teachers, trainings, and school have been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I love learning and I love sharing — I’ll always be a student.
REBEL WITH A CAUSE
As I grew up, I rebelled against what was considered “normal.” I painted my nails black (when it wasn’t trendy), wore baggy jeans, began and competed in bodybuilding, went to college 9 hours away from home (where I didn’t know anyone), and always told myself I would never go the traditional route— work a 9-5, get married, buy a house in the suburbs, and have kids. I believed rebellion would offer me what I wanted.
I wanted liberation, fulfillment, love, joy, and peace. I wanted it all.
Sounds impossible, right?
Well that’s exactly how I felt for years, that I was chasing the impossible. By default, I was committed to what “I should do” according to society, family, friends, and my own judgements. I stayed in a job I hated for years, I overextended myself in friendships, I started relationships (and stayed in them) that I knew were toxic, I drank alcohol excessively, I threw myself into work neglecting my well-being, I rarely spoke my truth, and often was out of touch with it. My self-talk sent me into dark places that left me questioning everything.
I had fleeting glimpses of the life I wanted when I quit my corporate job, started a business, went to therapy, and consciously choose who I was dating. But, I would fall back into the pattern — the ‘shoulding,’ the self-hate, and the doubting.
Ultimately, I couldn’t shake the feeling that I wasn’t being the person who I wanted to be and I finally admitted that I was stuck — there was no self-help book, exercise, or Brene Brown quote that could get me out of the hole I dug.
So, I hired a Life Coach.
Eventually, with the help my own coach, I took a stand for my dreams (even though I had no idea what they were at the time). It wasn’t easy or fun to see how I was sabotaging myself, but damn, it was worth it.
Here of some of my highlights so far:
I committed to operating from a place other than perfectionism, overwhelm and chaos in order to experience peace and grace.
I resigned from my soul-sucking job to become a full-time entrepreneur and fulfill my dreams around liberation and balance.
I saved and invested more money than I thought I would ever bring from my own business.
I commited to create a dream relationship with my husband which was previously heading toward a non-existent one.
I edited my life by letting go of what no longer brought joy and implemented boundaries in honor of myself and well-being.
