My Story

Love what you do; it is more than just a J.O.B…

I decided at a young age that I wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement and after hours of watching crime-solving TV shows, I completed my education and was excited to start my career in the crime laboratory. I loved all aspects of my work and could not wait to get up and meet the day’s challenges. I believe that when you follow your dreams, your career is not about the J-O-B; it is about creating a lifestyle filled with curiosity, personal growth, and fulfillment. Along my career journey, I met people who were not living their dream and were searching for something more satisfying. I began working with people through one-on-one meetings to identify and achieve their goals and discovered how coaching can make a difference in the lives of others.

Today, I am a certified coach, teacher, trainer, and DISC Consultant with the Maxwell Leadership Certified Team. I offer customized solutions that accelerate personal and professional growth so people can confidently communicate what they want and live differently. I work with students trying to identify careers that match their strengths, individuals in career transition, and executives who want to improve retention, performance, and employee experience that keeps them coming back for more. I thrive on getting people in the right seats so that everybody wins.
