About Me


I find humor and beauty everywhere. I focus intently on what matters. I commit to my goals and dreams and I work hard even when “I don’t feel like it.” I am happily married and have strong, kind sons that have grown into men I am proud of. I’ve created a life I love, a career that excites and enriches me, and friendships I cherish. That wasn’t always me…

My Past

While I had big dreams, I just didn’t know how to turn them into reality. I knew where I wanted to go, but I also knew I needed a little help with the journey.

My Transformation

Through hard work and the help of great mentors and teachers, I finally discovered what I consider to be the biggest factor of a joyful and successful life: commitment. Once I made a commitment to myself and to redesigning my life, change became possible and I found the success I longed for.

My Coaching

I bring this experience to my coaching practice, helping others create the lives they desire through commitment, accountability, discipline, and learning to value the gifts they bring to the world.

Today, I am confident, peaceful, and I trust myself. I am brave and thoughtful. I get mad and have bad days, but I also laugh often. I feel deeply and cry freely. I am definitely not perfect – but I’ve learned to love my imperfections for what they teach me. I live every moment of my life fully present and consciously aware of my blessings.

That’s the beauty of being human. Such a wide range of emotions and we get to embrace them all.

My personal journey has taught me that a lack of commitment can lead to poor choices, unfulfilling relationships, and a fear of moving forward in life. It can stop you from embracing all that life gives. I truly believe that my life experience abundantly enhances my formal training, making me the right coach for anyone who wants to redefine themselves and reach their goals through commitment, discipline, and accountability.
