The relationship between a coach and client is very special, it’s built on trust and respect. In order to get the most out of coaching, it’s important that you feel comfortable being open and honest about where you currently are in your journey, where you’ve been, and where you want to go. It’s also important that you know a little bit about your coach, let me share a bit of my journey with you…
I grew up in a very dysfunctional family; lies, deceit, and abuse were a regular part of life. I grew up feeling unloved and unwanted. I ran away at the age of 14 and spent most of my teenage years feeling angry and acting out. As I became an adult, I realized that I had to take responsibility for the condition of my life. It became clear to me that I hadn’t “designed” myself but rather, I had allowed everything and everyone up to that point to decide who I was. I had simply become a product of events and circumstances. Life had designed a person that I didn’t want to be. It was at this point that I began learning about the power of responding to life vs. reacting to it. When we learn to respond to the situations that life throws at us we have the power to deliberately design the person we truly want to be. I’m constantly working on my own personal development and that work will never be complete. I firmly believe that as long as we’re breathing, there’s room for growth. Personal development is never about the destination…it’s always about the journey!
I currently reside in Colorado with my husband of almost 20 years and my two very spoiled rescue pups. I have two wonderful grown children and became a grandma at the beginning of this year; what an incredible and joyous part of my life!
I love the outdoors, whether its riding my bike, camping, or hiking in the mountains, I feel my best when I’m surrounded by nature. When I’m home I spend a great deal of time in my garden, there’s something magical about playing in the dirt and growing your own food. My husband and I are both quite health conscious and live a very holistic life. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit, meditation, essential oils, and prayer. We also believe that everyone was created to live an abundant, purposeful existence.
Life has dished out its fair share of tragedies and hardships. By using the skills I’ve learned along the way, I’ve been able to not only rise above them, but embrace each challenge as an opportunity to grow and learn. I absolutely adore this sometimes-crazy ride we call life.
My true passion and purpose, is to inspire and empower as many people as I can to courageously step into their brilliance and become the very best version of themselves. Coaching allows me the opportunity to use my 51 years of hard earned wisdom, to make a positive difference in the world. Your success is my legacy.
