I treasure working with people who seek to live a life that is based on their true self. Nothing is more exciting and gratifying than seeing my clients discover their unique, pure essence. It is an absolute joy watching them come to believe in their own greatness and overcome obstacles which have stood in the way of them living an inspired, empowered life!
Prior to becoming a certified professional life coach through the inviteCHANGE training program, I was a personal fitness trainer for 7 years, with 4 of those years also freelancing as an E-commerce consultant. While raising my son as a single parent, I owned a delightful, smile-inducing gift shop for over 10 years. Before then, I was a graduate student at the University of Virginia where I earned my Master’s Degree in Government and Foreign Affairs. I was on track to receive my Ph.D and had intended to be a political science professor, but the Universe had other plans…
Without forethought on my part, my diverse educational, occupational, and life experiences all converged to beautifully and unmistakably lead me to what has proven to be my joyous life purpose. Irrepressible curiosity, a playful spirit, keen listening skills, love of learning and mentoring were all attributes that aligned with life coaching. Compassion, intuition, insight, & a grateful heart are fundamental to who I am as a person and as a coach.
I live in Kennewick, Washington near my son and daughter-in-law. I love hiking, yoga, hugging my dogs, engaging in activities that deepen my understanding of human dynamics, and reading inspirational books. I continually seek to amplify my spiritual connection and I believe that we all have our own unique journey.
