My Story



I’ll begin my story in 1978.  

We were two young kids just out of high school .  


 Soon our family grew with the addition of our son Jonathan and 2 years later our daughter Sarah came along. 


 My husband and I loved to ride motorcycles.  Here we are at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in 2010 


Like all families we had our share of ups and downs, triumphs and struggles.  Then in 2003 my husband suffered a disabling work injury.  Suddenly I had to assume the role of caretaker and head of household during his long road to recovery.  We faced financial disaster, emotional exhaustion and many complex family issues.  There were many sleepless nights filled with anxiety, doubt, worry and even anger.  We had built a comfortable life for our family and over the following years, we watched it slowly fall apart.  This was not the story I had pictured so long ago. 

I grew tired of worrying how the bills would get paid every month, I grew tired of working a job I didn’t really enjoy and one that would never create the life I wanted and deserved.  I grew tired of going to bed every night with the feeling that what I was reaching for felt so far away.

So, I decided to do something about it.   In 2014 I began a journey of self-discovery.  I wanted more out of life for myself and for my family.  

I learned that I couldn’t keep doing the same things and expect a different outcome.


 Once I learned the steps I needed to take to change my story, I decided to become a life coach so I could help others do the same. 


My story - my journey,  has been an absolute blessing.  It’s taught me that just as in those beloved books of my son’s childhood, I too can create an alternate ending for my story.   A story filled with hope, joy, love,  and anticipation for what is yet to come.   A lifestyle that allows me to spend more time with the people that matter most to me,
