Yoga came into my life in 1999.
This opened the world of spirituality to me. I had never known calm or safe in my body until I practiced yoga. I've been embodied in my own healing journey from that point forward.
In 2003 I got my Bachelor's degree in psychology. Upon graduation I knew I wanted to help survivors heal from abuse. This desire motivated by my own personal experience with abuse in childhood. In 2005 I welcomed with my first son through a disempowering, borderline traumatic birth. It felt like a re-victimization of sorts, stirring up the sexual abuse and betrayals I had experienced early on in life. I knew that was not a place I wanted to unpack as I navigated motherhood as a stay at home mom.
For the birth of my second son in 2007, I was able to take back my power and have an incredibly transformative birth experience, thanks to learning HypnoBirthing and practicing yoga through my pregnancy. I understood somatic healing. I deeply connected to embodiment. It was then I realized I had to teach other mothers how to have an empowering birth experience. I was certified as an energy healer and learned about different modalities in 2009. In 2010 I became a birth doula, taught HypnoBirthing and prenatal yoga.
I dabbled in the online coaching space in 2012 after my divorce from my boy's dad. But at that time, I wasn’t confident or ready for it. I went back to school for nursing in my thirties and became an RN in 2015. I had aspirations of becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife (advanced practice nursing degree) so I could do my part to change the culture of birth until it dawned on me that I really value my sleep and didn’t want it interrupted the rest of my career. A tenet I live by is: "if it's not a f*ck yes, it's a f*ck no!"
I worked as a pediatric palliative care nurse for many years until leaving that emotionally exhausting job to get back to birth and start my online coaching business in 2019.
I knew I was meant for more.
I realize what a unique treasure I am: a unicorn in the personal development field. ((you are too!!))
Combining my background in psychology, yoga (somatic) therapy, energy healing in the form of Reiki, EFT Tapping, decade+ as a professional birth worker offering intuitive doula services, HypnoBirthing, and empowering birth education, NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) to rewire the subconscious mind, owning my psychic, clairsentient abilities, plus being an RN-the most trusted profession in the states makes for some serious magic with my high caliper coaching clients. I now see and fully own the value I bring to the table in love and in entrepreneurship. I am a published author of "Keep Showing Up: A Memoir and Powerful Guidebook For Empaths to Embody Self-Love, Self-Empowerment and Self-Worth."
And living a life of embodiment, walking the talk of soul alignment from my birthing clients to my coaching clients I walk with them through their own empowerment. Supporting them in reclaiming their personal power, their authenticity, their birthright, their excellence. Empowerment through regulation. Experiencing life with a balance, flexible nervous system is optimal when you desire to expand into your highest potential.
