As a lifelong student of human nature, I've always been relentlessly intrigued by the momentum and magic created when what people are good at (their purpose) collides with what they love (their passion).
At age 15, I decided I wasn’t willing to “just go through the motions” in life. Ever since, I've invited others to join me to discover, develop and deliver our own way of living like we mean it…crafted from our divinely appointed purpose and passion.
I've taught students of all ages, taken them on trips to Europe and currently, as a professional life and leadership coach, I offer a personalized tour of your own style, strengths, skill and savvy. Like an anthropologist discovering another culture, I'd love to introduce you to your own personal roadmap of genius.
