As a coach, with over 10 years coaching experience, I help leaders and entrepreneurs make shifts and position themselves for growth and profits through power coaching, branding, and intentional networking. My growth hacking strategies supports individuals’ and small businesses’ needs for expansion and visibility.

Who would have know that the former elementary school teacher would be a thriving life and business strategist for leaders and business owners across the country? Have you ever found yourself feeling like “There must be more”?

Although I had a thriving career in education as a teacher, coach, and consultant, I had that same feeling. After losing my aunt to the 9/11 attacks at the Pentagon and losing my mom just 7 months later (both of them were younger than 45 and in the prime of their careers), I felt compelled to create a life that aligned with my passions and live life incredibly everyday.

After honing my coaching and business skills, I began teaching others how to launch into their passions and create businesses they love. Through the use of key strategies and mindset shifts, that I teach my clients, I have been able to create a life and business of flow, abundance, love, and many travels.

I’m here to help you do the same in your life and business.  YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL. You can embrace everyday with joy. You can live #lifeincredibly!
