About Me
 

My journey of exploration and transformation began over 20 years ago. I was overwhelmed with feelings of emptiness, depression, anxiety and living a life where I felt like I was just existing. I was so sick of being miserable, that I set out to search for something more. I was being pulled by my inner voice that kept saying, “there is more to life, and it's beautiful”. I searched for someone who could help me gain some insight into living a more rich and fulfilling life and eventually I found a Life Coach who became that “Agent of Change” that I desperately needed. She was a beacon of light and was able to support me unearth the path back to my true authentic self. She was able to hold the space for me as I fumbled trying to uncover the answers to the questions that I kept asking myself:

“Who am I?"

"What is my purpose?"

"What do I long for?"

 "Where am I going and how do I get there?"

In 1992, my Coach encouraged me to go a workshop titled “The Blessings of Being Female”. It was during this workshop that my life changed. I heard for the first time, that the answers to all my questions were already there deep within me, waiting for the opportunity to be birthed. I left there feeling hopeful and excited. My life was about to change…

 

I joined a women’s group and caught my first glimpse of what it is like to hold myself in truth, to be supported and encouraged by other women. I felt less alone as I learned how much we all had in common as we struggled through life's challenges.  From sitting with these women on a weekly basis, I felt uplifted, renewed and excited to be on a journey that was so rich in wonder and transformation. I was on the path back home to myself!

 

Here I am, many years later, a Certified Life Coach, facilitating women's circles and ceremonies, EmpowHERment workshops and mentoring teens!  I have been blessed and honored to be a witness to hundreds of women over the years experiencing their true innate power; by learning about self-awareness, self-care, self-empowerment and more!

 

I am actively involved and committed to the support and growth of individuals and our community. I truly believe that now, more than ever, is the time to take care of ourselves and come together to support one another.
