My Story


I’ve lived the busy, unhealthy pace of a hurried lifestyle. Distracted and depleted. Stressed and overwhelmed. And always rushing for more.

It’s why I’m so glad you’re here. 

I imagine you’re also uber busy with countless things pulling for your attention. But somehow you made your way here.

That makes me happy.  Because I want to help you.

As a Growth Mentor and certified Life Purpose Coach, I truly want to help you learn to have time and energy for what matters most.

A Fresh Rhythm

For years, I was an entrepreneur caught in the hypnotic chaos of ambition and motherhood. Passionate about growing my business and career, I made decisions that only drove me away from a life that reflected my true values.

I was successful, but miserable.

But one day I accepted a friend’s invite to her cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains. A beautiful, isolated place where a rickety, front-porch rocker lulled me away from my hectic schedule into a new rhythm of life. One where the traditional markers of success no longer determined my worth.

Sitting on that porch, stripped down to a healthy black and white silence, I realized I would never {ever} be able to do it all. Not well, anyway.

Sometimes we dive so deep into building something that we forget who we are and what we really want. But when we allow our core beliefs to serve as the guide, we remember why we’re doing what we’re doing, and how we’re going to do it.

Over time, I stretched myself to learn new behaviors and mindsets; I learned to create whitespace.

There’s an unclaimed margin in many of our lives, one where nothing competes for attention. It’s in this calm place, this whitespace, that the important things in life are allowed to stand out.

I want to help you get there.

My heart is to offer tips and solid solutions for personal mastery and living a life that satisfies your soul. A life without the rush and with more meaning.

So welcome, my new friend..  Let us pour the tea (or coffee) as we learn together to live and work from a place of rest.
