Founder and Certified Christian Life Coach
Hello Fellow Traveler, have you ever felt like you wanted to create change in your life...but you just didn't know where to begin? You're not alone in that feeling.
It's exactly how I felt in 2015 when I partnered with my first life coach on my journey to move from stuck to unstuck in my work, my purpose, and the pursuit of my dreams. It was truly a transformative process and saved me years of time!
Through coaching I was equipped to do life differently. Being coached from a Christian perspective completely shifted the trajectory of my life...and continues to influence the decisions I make today.
When you choose to work with me as your life coach, it will mean entrusting me with your story. Because of this relationship and level of trust, I want to give you a glimpse into my story.
Professionally, I have been coaching and teaching for over 20 years. I am an author, speaker, professional vocalist, vocal coach and certified Yoga and Fitness Instructor. In addition, and alongside that, I’ve worked 20+ years in the corporate and legal world. The results I have personally experienced through Christian coaching, as well as being part of the journey of the hundreds of women I've been privileged to coach over the years, is what fueled my desire to establish Freedom to Flourish Life Coaching.
Personally, I'm a country girl at heart who loves the great outdoors, expanse of ocean and sky, riding horses, sailing, and turquoise blue. My family and life experiences have taught me the redemptive lovingkindness and grace of God, who has transformed my pain into His purpose to serve others with a message of hope, healing, and the freedom to flourish. I am always amazed at how God can redeem what we perceive as our mistakes and weave them into a beautiful tapestry of a transformed heart and new life, reflecting the beauty of His love.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. - Galatians 5:1
Every person's story is unique and I consider it an incredible honor to contribute to the evolving lives of each individual I get to journey with. By giving permission for God's Word to be the wisdom that builds the foundation of our work together, the Holy Spirit does the transforming...and I am thankful to be a vessel in the process.
Let go of what's holding you back. Now is the Time for You to Flourish with Clarity, Confidence and Purpose in Your Life, personally and professionally.

Certified Christian Life and Relationship Coach
Do you feel like no matter what, it's not enough?
Are you feeling overwhelmed by life and perhaps underwhelmed by God? This feeling of being overwhelmed manifests differently, but my clients often have the feeling that nothing they do is enough. Life feels demanding.
Are you stressed or anxious, unable to be present in your present? You are not alone. God hasn’t stepped out. He is with you and wants to show you exactly where He is so that you can live in His fullness.
Professionally, I have a background in teaching with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a Master of Education. I'm a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors and the author of The Longing for Belonging Giving Up Ashes to Find Beauty.
Personally, my family has been the most splendid and redemptive classroom where God has shown me not only who He is but where He is. My husband and I have been married 30 years and have two magnificent grown daughters. I serve in women's ministry and enjoy writing and leading Bible studies. God has truly given me beauty for ashes.
…He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing
instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair…
Isaiah 61:3 (NLT)
I grew up angry at God. I believed that God was not an option for me. He was for other people … people who were undamaged. And since I did not believe that He was an option for me … I was against Him.
It took over 20 years for me to allow God to speak, and when I finally put my fists down … I was flooded with a new awareness of God and conversations with God.
I formed a new understanding of who God is and how much He loves me. Then I realized I had misunderstood His desire for me all along.
“If you look for Me, you will find Me.”
You might say, “Look for Him where?” Everywhere. Will you let me show you how?

Our Coach Approach
Our approach is holistic, which means we see the clients we work with as having a mind, body, and spirit. Each part is interconnected with intrinsic value and possesses unique needs. Each part affects the whole of who we are and how we function.
When we experience pain, we tend to feel powerless and alone in uncharted territory. Traumatic events can turn our life upside down in a moment...like a riptide pulling us under gasping for air. However, as we work together, our goal is that you are empowered in the transformative process of moving forward from where you are into the purpose and potential God created you for.
With each client we have the privilege to work with, we see curiosity and compassion, combined with inviting the Holy Spirit into the coaching process, as one of the most powerful tools to get to the deeper levels of the heart and mind and the beliefs that influence behavior. As Christian Coaches, we hold a sacred space to build a solid foundation of trust, safety, and rapport so you feel safe and empowered to change the frustrating cycles and patterns you have found yourself in.
Coaching is a partnership in which we come alongside you to listen, equip, encourage, support and guide you. Each coach provides the space for you to feel heard, be fully yourself, empowered, accomplish your goals, and to go from where you are in the direction of where you want to be - and also where God wants you to be. We do this through a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential.
In addition to college and professional degrees, our coaches earned Christian Life Coach Certification through Center for Christian Coaching, an accredited school through the International Coaching Federation (ICF), which upholds the highest professional standards in coaching and acknowledges the completion of Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH).
Our Mission is to be a bridge that connects you closer to the heart of the Father
so that you have the Freedom to Flourish in your life.
