I've spent a lifetime as a coach.
As a matter of fact, my first client was my little sister. When our mother passed away leaving me at 10 years old and my baby sister at 3 years old, I became her coach and mentor.
Even by the age 10, I had already faced one of my greatest challenges. When I was 3 years old my residence was a hospital, having survived 3rd-degree burns across 20% of my body. One of my earliest memories is when my great aunts came to see me and I was so frustrated that I was unable to hug them. My entire upper body covered in bandages and in traction, they were afraid to touch me. Afraid they would inflict more pain on my little toddler body. I was so upset, I tried to rip my bandages so that I could touch the people I loved and those who loved me.
Having married the love of my life, we found that we could not survive the stress of raising a family and running two businesses and so we separated after 14 years of marriage.
This divorce set me in the direction of revisiting the grief and trauma of my youth, to embrace my pain and begin healing.
Instigating small actions led to immense personal growth and my work as an essayist, podcast host, and coach.
Recognizing that everyone has a grief story, or will some day, I set out to normalize talking about grief with the podcast Grief Gratitude & Greatness, exploring the different ways we grieve, the gratitude that sustains us and the greatness we find along the way, one conversation at a time.
I spent a lifetime telling myself that I would not allow my experiences to excuse me from living an excellent life. And now I am inspired to help others' tap into their resiliency and live the life they want and deserve.
I am also the mother of two young and awesome boys and intent on raising aware AF men!
Lets work together,
I work with individuals who want more passion, more fun, more love and more abundance in their lives. As a business and personal development and grief coach, I partner with others and help them tap their potential to live an excellent life.
