Over the years I have received numerous clinical diagnoses including: anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, binge eating disorder, bulimia, thyroid disease, and narcolepsy to name a few.
Today I live my life absent of those conditions--but how is it possible when I was told that there was no cure and that I would need prescription medication indefinitely to manage the symptoms of these conditions?
It all started with the idea that something else was possible for me. Instead of dismissing it as crazy or unrealistic, I chose to follow it. I began saying it out loud and sharing it with others. I began acting in a way that supported it. Eventually the idea became a firmly rooted belief and today, it's simply my reality.
I hired my first life coach in 2019 and my already transformed life transformed again beyond my wildest dreams. In the beginning of 2022, I heard the calling to become a coach myself, and I answered it.
Today I help women with the courage to dream that something else is possible for them, transform their life through the power of their mind.

I will never forget the day I went to the doctor after recently having bloodwork done, and she told me that the results showed I had developed a new diagnosis.
Confused and upset, I asked her how to treat it. She told me there is medication that would help. Reluctantly, since I was already on several medications, I asked how long I would need to take it. She told me I would be dependent on it since there is no known cure for my diagnosis.
Stunned, I sat there considering how this could keep happening to me. It seemed like the more medications I took, the more I ended up needing. This can't be right I thought, so I asked her what she thought caused this new diagnosis. Then she said something I'll never forget...she said, "Well the medication you are on for depression can cause this, so it's most likely that."
In that moment, I was activated. It was exactly what I needed to hear to know with certainty that there was another way, and that I could trust myself to either find it...or create it. I decided right then and there that something else was possible for me.
A decade later, and I write this with no diagnoses and no medication, and am thriving in the way I had courageously dreamed of.
"It was exactly what I needed to hear to know with certainty that there was another way, and that I could trust myself to either find it...or create it."
In 2019 I found myself living in a strange duality, although I had generated profound healing and transformation in my life, there was still something big missing. I was working in yet another job that I wasn't passionate about and feeling frustrated with not knowing how to begin stepping into my purpose--in fact, I still wasn't clear on what my purpose even was.
There was someone I worked with that had a magnetic energy. It seemed that she felt joyful and free in a work environment that I felt suffocated in. I wanted to be free too. I wanted to feel the joy that radiated off of her for myself. When I found out she was a life coach I became curious.
Truthfully, I was hesitant to make an investment in my personal growth and it took me more than one conversation to seriously consider it--but then something clicked. She asked me what it was costing me to not take action on creating the life I desired and I was activated once again. It was costing me everything. It was costing me my soul. Everyday required a little piece of me to die inside so I could get through the day.
In that moment of awareness, I knew with certainty that I was ready to embark on a new transformation journey. I hired my first life coach and through the willingness to explore my own mind, the courage to acknowledge truth, and the discomfort of thinking in new ways, feeling new feelings, and taking new actions, I transformed my life all over again.
