Getting to this point

I was feeling stuck.  I loved my job but it no longer fit with the needs of my growing family.  After griping for a few years, not able to articulate what I wanted, I decided to stop living from a place of scarcity (paralyzed because I didn't believe there was another good option).  I mustered up an ounce of courage and decided that I was willing.  Willing to let go of my fears and ready to start dreaming.

Six months later our family moved across the country and today I'm living a life aligned with my values and I'm chasing my dreams.  No longer does my time run my life, instead I'm in charge of telling my time what I want it to do for me.  And one of the best parts of this journey is I look back with gratitude.  Thankful for each step along the way that has brought me to this point. 

I’d love to walk beside you during this next season of change and transition.

My credentials

Professional Journey

I had a great college experience so I decided to stick around for a while.  My husband and I lived on a college campus for the first decade of our marriage.  Higher education (specifically student affairs) has been the foundation for our professional careers.  We share a passion for seeing students wrestle with their understanding of the world-what they believe and who they want to become.  We've found it an honor to offer both support and challenge during this important time of life. 

Academic Foundation

I have my master's in Professional Mental Health Counseling and a second master's in Student Development.  I am currently working on a doctoral degree in Higher Education Leadership.

I teach student success and psychology classes on college campuses and through online platforms.

Coaching Path

I completed my training through the Life Coach Training Institute and I have my Board Certified Coach (BCC) certification.

The Board Certified Coach (BCC) credential is a mark of distinction for credential holders and a source of credibility for their clients. As a BCC, I have met professional coaching competency standards established by CCE and subject matter experts.

Jason and I have been married since we graduated college.  (We were babies and while I don't recommend it for everyone, it has been an incredible ride with plenty of downs but many more ups.) 

Five years into our marriage Jason realized I wasn't giving up on my dream to adopt.  Mateios "Matty" joined our family the following year.  He provides a ton of joy to our lives and we are never short on laughter or dancing.
