The teenage and early adult years can be so much fun and also very challenging. Managing academic and personal responsibilities, dealing with stress and overwhelm, figuring out your interests and goals is a lot, and sometimes you just need a little extra support. I get it!  I was a teenager who struggled with both early academics and my health.

 

Diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at the age of 14, I found myself unmotivated, lacking energy, disorganized, losing confidence as a student, and unsure of my future. Fortunately, caring adults helped me discover my strengths, develop the habits that I needed to support my wellbeing, and encouraged me as I found my path forward.  Those years were hard, but I wouldn’t change them.  The ability to take challenges and use them to grow, set me on a journey that led me to my coaching practice today. 

 

.... After college I developed a passion for working with adolescents and spent 7 years supporting at-risk youth and students with special needs in public education, while also beginning graduate school. My interest in wellness also grew and I learned to better care for my body and mind, while studying yoga and meditation.

 

…. I completed graduate degrees in both Educational Psychology and School Psychology and spent 8 years as a school psychologist.  The best part of my job was helping students recognize their strengths and learn valuable tools to support their academic and emotional growth. 

 

.... As a Colorado mom of three (almost grown) children, I left the schools after my youngest was born and began to further my education in the wellness industry.  I have been teaching yoga and mindfulness based classes for over 10 years, and am a board certified health and wellness coach. I have come full circle, using the life and career experiences and education I have acquired to realize my mission of success and wellbeing for all students. 

I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a client’s journey as they deepen their understanding of themselves, learn to see challenges as opportunities for growth, and develop the habits and tools to feel prepared as they transition into adulthood.
