Life is full of twists and turns, starts and stops, hills and valleys.  Detours are encountered along the way and we feel like we won’t get back on track.  But, life is also rich, beautiful and full of amazing diversity and possibility and hope.  Many times, we feel that we can navigate both truths and live each day with wholeness and wellness, believing our life has purpose and meaning.  However, sometimes we get stuck!

It is my passion to walk alongside others, coaching as they determine what is needed in their life.  Together we will explore, brainstorm, strategize, set goals and accomplish what they deeply desire.  I am about “renewal,” taking where we are today – our journey – and refreshing what we deeply care about so that we can make changes and move into the future with hope and energy.
