which means I’m full of amazing strengths, quirks, and imperfections—just like you.
When my husband died suddenly and tragically, I set off on a downward spiral that almost consumed me for good. My life was a mess, I was a mess, and I was in so much pain that I was living on autopilot. In one year, I lost my husband, my car, my house, my job, and so much more.
At just 29 years old, I felt completely and utterly stuck and, honestly, ready to give up. But my 2-year-old son needed me to do more than just hang in there—he needed me to thrive.
I'M ALSO NO STRANGER TO LIFE'S CURVEBALLS
I rebuilt my life by letting go of perfectionism and surrendering to the flawed, human messiness that is life.
I opened my mind, my heart, and my arms to let the light in; I stopped overthinking and started living.
In the process, I created a life I love.
SO I MADE AN INTENTIONAL CHOICE,
I stopped wishing for things to be “just right” and started embracing my WHOLE life - tragedy, imperfections, challenges and all.
🌱 I started making better decisions,
🌱 I learned to manage my anxiety,
🌱 I stopped feeling sorry for myself,
🌱 I rebuilt my confidence,
🌱 I started my business,
🌱 I got healthier, and became a better mom,
🌱 I gave a TEDx talk,
🌱 I reclaimed my life.
And while it might sound too good to be true, once I realized the power of mindful choices the switch was instant...
Life threw me a curveball when I became a widow overnight. And as if that wasn’t enough, a series of heart-wrenching losses followed, opening my eyes to the sad reality: our society often doesn't know how to support those who grieve. Yet, aren't we all connected through our struggles?
I'm kinda obsessed with the small stuff. Ever thought about that tiny tweak in your morning routine that could change the whole game? Or that little change in perspective that turns everything upside down? With a sprinkle of curiosity and a dash of fun, I dive into the stories of my guests from all walks of life--authors, CEOs, adventurers, thought leaders, and more!
Life is tough and can you feeling overwhelmed, fearful, angry, or sad... But you are NOT defined by what’s happened to you. You are defined by how you respond to life.You hold the power to shape your reality when you consciously choose your responses to what life throws your way.
My big, bold mission is to pour into each person I reach with the mental skills and practical tools that support healthy thinking, lead to positive actions, and build meaningful lives that ripple out into the world.
I teach people how to take charge of their thoughts and actions, enabling them to develop a growth mindset and live a stress-free, joy-filled life.
Because the undeniable truth is, when you choose to be better, you make the people around you better, and the world a little better, too.
