What is your story? Or in other words, what made you the awesome self you are today?

My story is of a young teen mom struggling to figure out what she wanted to do with her life. After having my son, I decided I wanted to join the Army. I had no idea why but I did it. In the army, I took home major core values that shaped me as a woman. I also met my husband, who gave me three more beautiful children and the life I could never have imagined. Once we moved up to Chicago, I went to school for nursing. That didn't work out so I changed my major to accounting where I found my passion for the little details in numbers and wanted to be home with my babies so I started a bookkeeping business for small business owners like myself.


What message do you promote? 

I empower small business owners to have control over their finances and take back time to work in their brilliance


In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community? 

I help in many ways. I'm the treasure for my kids' school...

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

My life has been a series of ‘forks in the road’ that have lead me to where I am today. I was drawn to the health field due to a prevalent family history of dementia and a personal issue with dysglycemia (Imbalanced blood sugar). I was raised to be a preacher and left that to become a Holistic Doctor. My focus is mental health. I love the brain and see connections with brain types and behaviors. I am also intrigued with the mind and have discerned that much of what people feel they are as a person are actually survival strategies disguised as personality traits. Our behavior patterns affect all of our relationships - with ourselves, others, and life in general. 

I help folks when they, too, are at a fork in the road in their lives. This is a time of decision and growth when they realize something needs to change (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually) and they are ready...

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I was unable to breath.  The demands of my job were manageable or so I thought, what I didn’t realize is that my body was breaking down, I literally couldn’t breathe, my body was telling me I was putting up with too much and it was time to change.  It took me four years to get to the right physician for a proper diagnosis and determine I needed surgery. Surgery fixed my physical problem of not being able to breathe, but it did not change the situation, the stress of my job was killing me. What I was putting up with was not reasonable, I needed to find a better way.  So, I took my knowledge and experience and wanted to put it to use still saving lives and helping other busy professional women see what can change for them.  What is your health worth? I decided mine was not worth my job.   


What message do you promote?

Take care of yourself now.  Your...

A secret weapon to thriving when working from home!

business Jun 07, 2021

Is it that easy to have happy, engaged, inspired employees when they are working remotely??

Our business environments have changed drastically since Working From Home #WFH has been imposed upon us. A year ago, many businesses were uncertain that flexi-hours, working from home were good ideas, that it could work! Well, this pandemic has made us all re-think how we work, how can we still deliver exceptional customer experiences with the team working remotely!

The problem is keeping employees happy and engaged when they are all on their own is not as easy as it seems. Working in your PJs, or still lying in your bed, or trying to juggle the kids, the dog, the spouse, as well as being productive is certainly not conducive to maximal performances!

Do you know that our environment has a direct effect on our State: our thinking, feeling and behavior. Environmental psychology, the scientific study of the transactions and interrelationships between people and their physical...

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

25 years ago in the throes of postpartum depression my intuition told me that childbirth and postpartum were meant to be glorious, peaceful and joyful experiences for both mother and baby.  I set out to find a way to help women exactly that.  I learned HypnoBirthing and from there saw all of the ways women could step into their power to create greater joy, peace and a deeper connection to their Divinity.

We are all whole and complete beings capable of having the ideal life we dreamed of as young children.
