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

My story is a combination of my experience growing up in a blended family of 13 children, my lifelong curiosity with personal growth, and my experience living abroad with my little family of 3.

I know what it feels like to be shy and unheard as a child and feeling lost in the shuffle of a large family. And then, trying to overcome basic fears, pouring my heart and creativity into dance and choreography in high school and college, becoming a small business owner of a thriving floral shop at age 25, finding my voice and confidence as a fitness professional and up to current times of re-inventing myself as a life coach for women living with chronic illness or a life-altering injury.

Being an observant and sensitive child, I absorbed all the emotions and feelings circling my childhood home. From that experience, I have stories inside of me that I have neutralized, and I use them to share and help...

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

I became a client of my firm at the age of 13 when my single mom passed away unexpectedly. So, after over a decade of corporate experience in financial services, I decided to take my chances as an entrepreneur and “sit on the other side of the desk.” It’s been an amazing experience over the last 2 years, and I look forward to going to the office now!

 

What message do you promote?

Everyone deserves access to financial advice. Especially women, who are often juggling their finances, their partner’s finances, the family finances, and her business’s finances. It’s a lot for one person to take on, which is why the DIY approach so rarely works. 

 

In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community?

In addition to co-leading a networking group for women entrepreneurs, I am actively involved with my alumni association, the high school band program where my...

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

What made me the awesome self I am today began with my decision to live for myself first. Drop the habits that were holding me hostage. I live free from all negative attachments, impulsive actions, and people-pleasing codependency! Today I do not rely on anything outside of myself to bring me peace, joy, comfort, relief, or validation. I am able to receive gifts in all experiences. I am capable of embracing every difficult situation. I am strong enough to sit in and move through the traumatic.

What message do you promote?

Everyone deserves to live free. This is your life too; it can look, feel, be, any way you want it to. 

In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community?

I am a Recovery Lifestyle Enthusiast! Broaden your perspectives here… because I’m not just talking about alcohol and controlled substances...NO... I’m talking food shopping, dieting, exercise,...

The loss of my mom and grandmother within a month of each other. Both were influential in who I am today. My mom was only 59 when she passed, and it sent me into a spiraling depression that was not easy to recover from. I was a mess. It took all of my inner strength and resilience, the support of friends, and therapy to move forward in life.

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

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.

Take care of yourself now.  Your...

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.

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

I’ve spent my life communicating the profound love of Spirit & the Universe in any way I can- through my art, and now through my psychic mediumship services. 

 

What message do you promote?

I want to show everyone that the Universe is patiently waiting for you to connect and provide for you in any way it can. It’s up to you to make that connection, and I am of service to help you with that connection any way we can- together.

My purpose is to show that Spirit is available to everyone, any time and every way. It’s not something to be feared or dismissed as “woo-woo.” This concept of a connection with Spirit is something to be embraced within the framework of our daily lives.
