Lifestyle and Mindset Coach for Women
My life today is very different than what it was just a couple years ago. I had a well respected career with high pay, great benefits and an irresistible pension. My family and friends were proud of me but inside I felt trapped.
Rewind back to 2006, I had been hired to start my career in emergency police communications after a long hiring process. I was over the moon, all my hard work was paying off and life was about to make a huge positive turn.
Before coaching I worked for 9 years in police communications answering 9-1-1 and non emergency calls helping people in crisis.
I am a single mother of a teenage daughter who has inspired me to hold on tight to my imagination, to always go after my dreams, and most importantly to love myself. My family and friends are very important to me as they help me grow, learn, and laugh.
My daughter and I are more connected then ever!
I really enjoy writing, theatre arts and am rarely opposed to going on a road trip. On a chilly day I enjoy a chai latte and some cuddles with my 2 cats.
Shortly before my start date things changed. A bad car accident left me feeling like my world was falling apart.
As time went on and I realized my injuries were permanent I began to feel afraid. Afraid of losing friends, afraid of losing my job, afraid of disappointing those I love, and afraid of failing at anything and everything.
You see in 30 seconds my life changed and so did I.
For years I put on a mask of strength, courage and optimism yet inside I was feeling anxious, resentful, unsure of myself and indecisive. I felt ashamed of feeling this way and was finding it difficult to connect with anyone, most importantly my daughter. I was struggling to find my purpose and so began my journey of self discovery.
I knew I had to change my way of thinking, I had to dig deep to find myself again.
I studied the Art and Science of Mindfulness before going on to study the Art and Science of Coaching through Erickson International. Shortly afterwards I attended a workshop - Discover Your Sacred Gifts held by founder Monique MacDonald. I connected deeply with the Sacred Gifts program. Understanding my own Sacred Gifts and how to use them in a meaningful way changed my views on life. I loved the program so much that I became a Sacred Gifts Guide and have made it a part of my mission to help others really connect to their inner desires with a deeper sense of purpose.
I have worked hard to find my passion again and in doing so I have learned new things about myself. I have learned how to deal with my anxiety, build my confidence, and reconnect with my loved ones.Through my journey of self discovery I found my inspiration to live a life of authenticity and I am happy to feel like me again. Today I feel free, confident, resourceful, resilient, and most of all grateful for my life journey and I am excited for what is to come!
I want you to be excited about your life journey. Get ready to design a life of Meaningful Purpose!
