I’ve always been the one that played by the rules: a good kid, a good student, a good friend, a sister, a loving daughter, a wife, a mother, a neighbor, a volunteer and the one that kept the peace. I lived my life within the box, but I never really felt comfortable within my skin. Life was status quo, I was settling and then….My world was turned upside down (isn’t that how most change begins?) I was cracked wide open. I lost my parents, ended my long term marriage, the kids went off to school, questioned friendships, started dating, searched for my birth family, and looked for meaning! All that was my status quo just wasn’t anymore. You’ve heard the expression: Been there, done that; I have and I’ve survived and even thrived!
I had zero clue what a ‘personal growth journey’ was except that it sounded like something that hippie dippies do when under the influence! Well, I guess I had been under the influence of something and someone that had suppressed the real me from emerging.
Who knew that at 50-something people CAN and DO change. So, I made moves to change me and whatever was holding me back. It has been a long and winding road (great name for a song) and I am now happily thriving within my own skin-thanks to a few well asked questions by my coach!
I am a transplanted Californian living in Florida. Happily married to the love of my life, an empty nest mom to two ‘grown ass men,’ a step-mom, a dog mom, a loyal friend, a passionate advocate in the court system for children in the foster care (GAL) and a Certified Professional Coach! I have finally figured me out!
What I do:
I am a certified professional life and transition coach who empowers women to find their own voices when faced with everyday and mind numbing life cycle events. I am also an adult adoptee which gives me a unique and empathetic way to engage with all members of the adoption triad; adoptee, first/birth parents and adoptive parents.
I’m a Certified Professional Coach trained at iPEC, one of the top training programs accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF), so you can know that my credentials are legitimate and I’ve been trained by the best.
With me as your coach you get a cadre of proven coaching techniques that have helped thousands of people define their dreams, overcome challenges, and step into their greatness. I’m also an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI-MP) and offer iPEC’s powerful Energy Leadership Index Assessment tool as part of my coaching packages.
This attitudinal assessment tells you how you’re showing up in your life right now, both day-to-day and under stress. Attitude is subjective so it can be altered. Using your ELI results and working with me as your coach, you have the power to alter your attitude and perspective, make a shift in your consciousness and mindfully increase your energy.
