Finding the Road to
I’ve overcome a lot of obstacles in my life – from abuse, to family addiction issues and homelessness. At 21, I was emotionally torn apart, caught in a dangerously abusive relationship that lasted nearly 5 years.
Through a powerful journey of self-discovery, I unlocked my personal power and began to transform my life.
Today, I own my own business. Step by step, I’ve moved past those circumstances. It’s my mission to share what I’ve learned with others and help and them create their dreams.
where you‘ve come from,
where you’re going.
Creating EMPOWERED Lives
On Our Own Terms
The focus of my work is empowerment and strategic personal development. I’ve learned that to be truly successful (and happy) in business, you have to be successful in life.
I share my “in the trenches” insights and ideas on achieving success on a BIGGER, BETTER, BOLDER level in every area of your life.
My mission is to help current and emerging women leaders maximize their potential and get the most out of life. Our career paths don’t fit the neat boxes that our parents’ and grandparents’ did–things have changed.
We’re carving our own path. I write, coach and teach about that journey: how I’m doing it, what I’m learning, and how I’m helping others who are building their dream lives.
