Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had an entrepreneurial wild-hearted spirit, a free-thinker if you will – daydreaming in a world of words, books, and sunlit skies. From the young age of 11, when I had my first poem published, until much later in life, I had a constant desire to live my dreams writing stories from a beachfront scenic view. So, I followed the path I learned about all my life and pursued a college education (majoring in Psychology) because I wanted to understand first myself and then others – knowing is the key to writing any great story worth telling.
I learned from a very young age that writing was a tool I could use to help myself heal. Having experienced trauma as a child, I needed an outlet, and writing saved me and helped turn me into the woman I am today.
Every heart-centered entrepreneur needs a little faith…
My faith has always played an important role in my life; it’s the center of who I am, how I live, and what I do. I’m a Christian that loves all, judges not a single soul, and seeks to not only do what I love but also live a mission lifestyle. I want to help as many women as I can pursue their own dreams and live their own life while being a light in a world. I want to help women discover their authentic voice and feel empowered enough to share it with everyone.
College was the start of my path. I always felt like something was missing to help people overcome anxiety, depression and a negative mindset. I just didn’t know that my path would be nutrition until I saw an advertisement that forever changed my life. I immediately called and enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2012. I remember the thrill, the excitement, and the feeling knowing that I was going to change lives – but first, I’d start with my own.
I learned an intense amount about holistic modalities and the most memorable circle of life that helped each person, myself included, realize that we need to approach life holistically to have a healthy and happy life full of joy and abundance. This is true for nutrition, relationships, careers, spirituality, creativity, and finances – to name a few.
This is where I came full circle.
I finally discovered those missing pieces that were stopping me from living my dreams. I had held onto negative and unworthy thinking because I still clung to the mindset of being a victim. I looked in all the wrong places for healing and love, and like a broken record I endured toxic relationship after toxic relationship.
When I graduated from IIN, I immediately started pouring myself into putting my business and brand together in a way that felt right to me and aligned with my purpose. I created my own website, wrote my own copy, designed my own site, and managed my business effectively and efficiently to attract clients. For the last few years, I’d earned extra money writing term papers for college students, marketing businesses for family and friends, and somehow not realizing that these were my natural-born skills and the missing piece of the puzzle to living my own authentic life. It didn’t hurt that I also turned out to be really skilled at putting together websites and business development strategies.
I realized that I wanted to impact in a different way.
Of course I enjoyed coaching and creating original nutrition programs for myself and for coaches, but what I really enjoyed was empowering each individual coach to create a bigger impact by discovering what it is they were meant to specialize in, how to show up online with a brand that represents who they are as a person, how to manage an online business to avoid being overwhelmed and, most important, my purpose – how to put their ideas into words that can sell products, programs, and coaching offerings through their websites, blogs, emails, and trademarked programs.
After completing nearly four years at Liberty University, four classes shy of my Bachelor’s Degree, I realized that my true passion would never exist in an office environment providing counseling.
I felt a calling to serve globally, to help entrepreneurs influence the world.
I see my impact daily, happening as a ripple effect – every time someone finds one of the entrepreneurs that I have helped, two lives are affected: the entrepreneur and their client.
Where I am now
Faith, Family, Work
I’ve created balance in all areas of my life and built a space where I can enjoy planning campaigns, strategizing or writing sales pages, websites, emails and more from the comforts of my home, while my children quietly play in the next room with my husband.
My work gives me freedom.
I have four amazing children, three sons and a daughter who all light up my life. They are the reason my husband Frank and I work so hard – to give our children the life we’d always imagined. We make sure they have security, dependability, love; and we strive to teach them that it’s important to rise above your circumstances, live your purpose, and continually put in the effort and hard work to create your best life.
Best of all, I get to work with entrepreneurs who dream of working on their own terms, making a difference where it matters to them, and being present in their own lives and families. With each marketing strategy I plan, with each website I help create, with each sales page I write, I know that what I’m doing matters to someone and that what they do matters to someone else – and so, by helping each other in the ways we best know how, we make the world a better place one step at a time.
