My Journey

I thought I knew who I was, yet carried around this uneasy feeling that there was something more. I felt disconnected and stuck. ​I needed to press the reset button.

In other words, I was at a crossroads and felt like a caged bird driven by what I lacked, instead of what I love.

I learned to tap into my own intuition and redirect my life in service to something bigger than myself…something to give the world.

 

It took some digging to realize the positive themes and patterns in my life (life force). The process empowered me to shift my thinking, giving me a new perspective to realize and express my true value in the world.

NOW

  • I experience what makes me come alive!

  • I do more of what I love

  • My attention is more focused

  • I am more me than I ever have been

  • I am giving my gift to others

 

My life force is COURAGEOUS RENEWAL, which is creative growth, connection, and breaking new ground. I inspire others to courageously renew by awakening possibilities that engage their true purpose.

Who am I? What makes me special?

What do I have to give to the world?

I needed to know.
