My tale of trauma, terror, and turn-around.

How I went from rock bottom to reigniting my soulfire

I knew I wasn’t doing well. That’s why I was seeing a counselor.

What I couldn’t figure out is how a vivacious, driven girl who graduated high school as student council president with a 4.2 GPA, Honor Society membership, and head cheerleader status ended up with a life that was in a total nose dive.

Everyone, including me, thought I would make it big. Instead...

My husband, Dush, and I had just lost over $100,000 on an event we spent 9 months of the year creating through our business. 9 months of pouring my own time, love, and energy into every last detail, and 9 months of our team’s talent, dedication, and effort.

The event required so much of our time and resources, in fact, that we had taken our eye off our main business and let it dwindle down to one client.

“It’s ok,” Dush and I would say to each other. “We’ll make a big profit on the event in the fall.”

Instead, we found ourselves with a thick noose of debt tied around our necks and trying to run our company, make payroll, and keep our own life afloat (mortgage, bills, etc.) on the revenue from one single client.

On top of that, I had family issues. 30 years of issues, in fact, that were coming to a head.

And let me tell you, when you start scratching at a wound that old, it’s going to be a gusher.

That whole story is too long to tell here, but I’ll give you the short version.

I’m now on a mission

to help other women heal the wound of disconnection from their true selves so they can live the life they were meant to live

...the one their soul yearns to live - full of power, full of confidence, full of love, and bursting with the joy that radiates from realized dreams.

I believe...

  • Self-love and integrity are the cornerstones of a successful life. Building on anything else is a house of cards.
  • “You can choose courage or you can choose comfort, but you cannot choose both.” - Brene Brown
  • You matter. So do your ideas, your dreams, and your voice.
  • You are a good person. You deserve love. You deserve respect. And you deserve compassion.
  • You deserve more than “fine”. You deserve spectacular...and yes, it’s possible for you.
  • What the world needs most is people who have come alive. (hat tip Howard Thurman)

It’s your time to shine.

favorite quote

“We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?'

Actually, who are you not to be?

...Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine…And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

- Marianne Williamson
