Those who know me would describe me as an educator, a world-traveler, an adventurer, an arts lover, a history lover, a food lover, an empath, a giver, a truth teller & truth seeker, a wife, a mother, a friend, a teacher, an advisor, and a coach.
My world has always revolved around helping others. I taught high school for 16+ years, served on multiple committees which improved school/work culture, promoted professional development and supported at-risk students academically and emotionally.
Teaching was my purpose: it allowed me the gift of being a part of people’s growth & development. I got to nurture kids through their tumultuous teens, provide a safe place for lost souls, challenge them to take risks and try new things and practice growth mindsets.
However, when I had my own child, I decided it was time to make a career shift and made the choice to transition these passions into a Coaching career. After an intense year juggling my studies with my practicum hours AND my newborn, I was ready to begin my new life’s path.
I understand TRANSITION.
I have survived the ANGST of leaving a dependable career I excelled at and truly loved to pursue the UNKNOWN and take on the steepest learning curve of my life (and greatest personal growth).
I understand flux, I understand office politics, I understand dysfunctional teams, clashing personalities and DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS.
I understand the effects of BULLYING & ANXIETY, both as a teacher looking in and a kid who moved a lot and was bullied at multiple schools. The impact is immense.
However, I also know how RESILIENCY can change the course of your life.
I understand that all learning styles are different but that we are ALL CAPABLE of rising up when challenged and supported.
I understand that each person has something OF VALUE to contribute but that sometimes they aren’t quite sure what that may be.
I understand that everyone struggles in their lifetime and that everyone benefits from having someone to WALK ALONG SIDE them.
If any of this resonates with you then let's connect.
Expert pattern finder, skillful connector of meandering stories and challenger of status quo expectations; Deep listener, energy feeler, soul healer; Big picture visionary and creative solution seeker; an optimist who despises the word "CAN'T" and sees life as possibility waiting to be discovered. Strong believer that each action we take sets off a domino effect in the world around us. Passionate igniter of the LIGHT in others.
It is imperative that we are our BEST selves!
It is imperative that we stop floating through life on autopilot, listening to the "shoulds" of others.
It is imperative that the actions we take, the realtionships we have and the work we do reflects the person we WANT to be.
And it is a disservice to this world to deny it your gifts, your voice & your contributions.
So, how can YOU be a part of the solutions instead of the obstacles in your life?
I will help YOU discover your truest self find your own hope, possibility, strength & resilience.
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
