I am a firm believer that our dreams are ours for a reason; not by accident or coincidence. Because of this belief, I am here to help you clear out your mindset roadblocks, tap in to your internal compass (yes we do all have one!), and ditch the fears telling you that you can’t have your dream life because I 100% believe you can and will with my support.
You’ve worked hard in life. You’ve checked off all the boxes towards success that you were told to and on paper your life looks “good”. You got the good grades, earned the degree, landed the first secure job, moved to the new city, willingly jumped on the hamster wheel of our world without knowing exactly what you were signing up for. You’ve perfected being who you thought you should be in this world.
As a recovering should-a-holic I know ALL about working reeeeeally hard to build someone else’s version of success + happiness.
BUT you’re at a point in life where you can’t ignore the little voice in your heart that says you deserve and desire more from life. More purpose. More passion. More community. More freedom. More balance. More adventure. More of the most authentic and happiest you.
You’re at a crossroads where you can either continue to run on this hamster wheel of just an okay life , OR you can grab the steering wheel of your life back.
I know the terrifying feeling of standing on the ledge; all the thoughts + emotions that crash down on you like waves just before you’re about to make a leap.
From confused and uncertain to clear and confident
From stuck and frustrated to free and soaring
From feeling uncomfortable in your own skin to truly enjoying standing out
I believe all young women deserve a life they are truly and authentically in love with, now not later. A life they can’t wait to jump out of bed and live each morning they wake up. I am on a mission to help women (just like you!) feel more confident in your life goals, more clear on your next steps towards your goals, and more courageous to push past your fears and doubts. I have found a beautiful balance in my life - a great career I know is my purpose, the ability to prioritize my self-care and give my wellness what it deserves, an empowering community that builds me up, and a sense of peace and freedom with where I am at and where I am going. After spending too many of my best years not living this balanced life, I realized I am most passionate about making sure other women find the support and empowerment they need to not do the same.
I know the frustrating feeling of wanting more from life, but also being stuck as to what that more exactly is, how to stop your own mind from talking you out of it, and then what action steps to take first. Lucky for you, my most authentic passion is helping you navigate through the ups and downs, the leaps of faith, the crazy surprises that come with navigating the life decisions we must make in our 20’s and 30’s.
#1: I’m tired of feeling exhausted and holding back in life
You have lost the connection with yourself a bit. You are so tired of feeling tired. You don’t recognize the person looking back at you in the mirror. You know the value in taking care of yourself, nourishing your body, feeling your best - but you struggle to find the time, support, and right system to help you do that. You are looking for long-term lifestyle change, both inside and out, and are ready to make the commitment.
#2: I’m ready to get out of my own way, show me how!
You are ready to make changes in your life, but just can’t seem to push past the invisible barrier holding you back. You desire to feel excited each morning, enjoy living your days instead of always praying for Friday, and feel confident in the direction your life is going in. You are fed up holding yourself back in life and refuse to wait any longer and risk looking back with regret.
#3: I’m pretty over this status quo life, is there something better out there?
You find yourself daydreaming about working from the beach, traveling when you want, having a career where you can give yourself a raise whenever you need? You want to be around positive, passion-driven go-getters who aren’t afraid to live life a bit differently. You have a bit of the entrepreneurial bug inside of you, but aren’t really sure what to do with it. You LOVE the idea of not being stuck in a 9 to 5 job.
yet at the age of 23 I found myself working extremely hard to achieve the exact life I never wanted. It was as if I was living on a constant treadmill of trying to figure out how to actually be happy and still make everyone else proud in the process. I was totally driven by what others said I should do, should enjoy, and should want for my life.
I didn’t know if a world existed where I could truly be who I wanted to be and have the type of life I wanted to have.
Letting go of these fears and making big changes in life was anything but easy, but I knew I had to do it. I didn’t want to waste any more of my precious time (tomorrow is not guaranteed remember!) living a life I wasn’t meant for.
Do you know how much is possible for you when you truly decide who you are, what you want from life, and that your dreams are non-negotiable?
Well if you don’t, then let me be the one to tell you that it’s true. You are actually in control of your life.
In order to create something in your life you’ve never had, you have to be willing to do something you’ve never done and become someone you’ve never been.
My first dream in life was to be a motivational speaker (odd I know, but true). But that wasn’t the dream I was supposed to have, it wasn’t practical, so I tried to ignore it and act like it didn’t exist. That was the beginning of a pattern of life for me. A pattern of letting the judgments and expectations from others run my life, dictate how I lived each day, and alter the decisions I made for my future.
This pattern followed me to my early 20’s and resulted in a woman who didn’t know who she truly was, would flip flop through life decisions, and felt trapped in a body and a life that didn’t feel like mine. I was frustrated, wishing for more, and honestly wasting some of the best of years of my life not being who I truly knew I was meant to be in this world.
In 2013 I hit a breaking point where I knew couldn’t ignore this nagging feeling inside of me anymore that was saying either I make some serious changes in my life or I really didn’t see the point in living anymore. Have you been there?
I was 6 months out of college and just going through the motions of life; dreading Monday, praying for Friday, and clinging onto the weekends. When I looked in the mirror I saw a person staring back at me that was almost numb; trapped in a body I resented, stressing about the future, having no sense of passion when getting up each day, and just really unsure of where to go next. All I kept thinking to myself was this can’t be all there is to life; is this really what people told me to work so hard for? Is this really all I have to look forward to for the next 50 to 60 years?
Life Lesson: the only person who is responsible for my own happiness is me and if I wasn’t happy then it is my obligation to myself to do something about it.
What better way to jump into your dream life then by moving to a new city and starting a new career right? I took a major leap of faith on a new city, stumbled upon life coaching, and decided to start the first version of my business in May 2015. I invested $16k in a training program to start my business and yet at the end of it still found myself falling into my old patterns of doing it the way others told me to and being worried about what others would think.
Life lesson: you can take all the leaps you want, but if you don’t change the way you think in the process you will end up with the same result.
If you would have told me I was going to end up partnering with a health and wellness referral based company I would have laughed in your face, but sometimes the universe knows exactly what you need even when you don’t. Life lesson: It is not your job to have the entire plan or how it is all going to fall into place figured out; it is your job to listen to the messages and take the next step being shown to you. After struggling with my weight my whole life (no but really, started my first diet when I was 12) and getting to a point where I was completely ready to give up, I took a chance on a nutritional program that not only transformed me physically, but also allowed me to release layers of built up barriers holding me back from my most authentic dreams.
With those layers beginning to peel back, I got more confident in listening to my internal voice saying what I did and did not want from life. Even though I had already been on an almost 3-year-long journey of building my dreams, it was at this point where I really began to understand what it meant to take true ownership of your journey, the power of your own belief in yourself, and how important it is to find a community and space of like-minded people that want to live out life like you do.
Even as I made all this progress towards my most alive life, I was still holding back. I kept working my 9 to 5 job, while building my business, telling myself I just wasn’t ready and didn’t have it ’figured out’ enough yet. Yup, told you those limiting beliefs don’t go away just overnight.
But in the Spring of 2017, I got in a car accident that completely shook me to my core. I was out of work for months with a brain injury and yet my business boomed more than ever. How the heck is that possible? Life Lesson: spending your days so out of alignment with what you truly desire will block you from attracting the life you actually want. I had to decide once and for all to make the big leap I was resisting, leaving the safety of my job and taking a chance on my true dreams. It still took me almost a year to finally do, but in spring 2018 I finally decided that my dreams were worth it and I had to trust myself to make it happen. Was I terrified? Absolutely. Do I now have it all figured out? No way. But I am living the life I know I was meant to, finally.
I wanted a life that I have control over. That I have choice in. That I get to dictate and decide. I wanted a life designed by me, not for me, that is aligned with what matters most to me and makes me the happiest. I wanted to truly live my life now, in the moment, rather than waiting and hoping to get to do it later.
I took the leaps, cried the tears, worked through the crap, leaned into the fears and created my authentic roadmap. I think we all deserve that. I think we all owe it to ourselves to pursue that.
