“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams!” — Oprah Winfrey
My lifelong passion has always been to coach, mentor and serve others, and I have been fulfilling this passion in various capacities ever since I can remember. As I have evolved personally and professionally, so has my passion. Everything I have experienced and learned in my life has led me to the place I am today. As a certified High Performance Coach from the world renowned, Brendon Burchard to a Life Coach from the Life Mastery Institute and a certified Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, my strongest desire is to help people live the life of their dreams… mind, body and spirit. Supporting women and moms especially, has been such a gift for me because I have experienced many of the challenges that come from being a mom who works inside and outside of the home.
Born and raised in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA, I am blessed to still reside in my hometown with my husband, Derek. We are the proud parents of four uniquely special children: Katie, Christie, Bella and Dayne.
After a personal and devastating loss at the age of 38, I realized life was simply too short not to be doing something I had always dreamt of. So, I followed my heart and my passion and made the decision to return to school and I officially entered the beauty industry in 2004 as an Aesthetician. For almost seven years I owned and operated a sanctuary-by-the-sea day spa dedicated to helping people feel and look their best. During my work with clients, it became more and more apparent to me that "beauty" on the outside was a direct reflection of "health" on the inside. As a first-time business owner, I experienced many successes and also made many mistakes. Making mistakes in a failing economy proved to be a recipe for disaster. With a heavy heart, I closed my business in 2011. As the universe would collaborate, I was packing boxes to vacate the building and an opportunity presented itself to further explore the world of health and in a way that resonated with me even deeper. I began attending seminars and conferences, listening to doctors and other health professionals speak around the country, which propelled me to fully examine all aspects of health and wellness. This was the beginning of my amazing, rewarding journey towards total wellness... mind, body and spirit.
Since 2011 I have devoted myself to the training and education to expand and offer my skills as a Life & Nutrition Coach. I believe our overall health and wellbeing is supremely important... without it, we can become a priosoner in our own mind and body. To achieve overall health and wellbeing, we must bring our life into balance... a balanced life can endure long past the average life. Acknowledging and persuing our dreams and passions along the way enables us to achieve optimal mental and emotional health. It is never too late to take the steps to embark on expanding a greater version of yourself and there is no better time than now.
My desire is threefold: First, to enable individuals to discover who they are at their deepest level and bring forth their authentic self, forever leaving behind old stories that no longer serve them. Secondly, to support individuals to integrate a full mind, body and spirit connection in all aspects of their lives to create balance and harmony within. Thirdly, to assist individuals in bringing awareness to their food choices and how their nutritional habits are affecting their overall health and wellbeing.
