I find that it can be easier to open up if you know a little about me too.
You should know that while I do have the degrees and a wall full of cute little framed certifications, those are not the things that make me the coach I am today. My success as a coach and the greatest value to my client’s is my ability to connect with others. I am who I am because of my life experiences and what I learned from them (even if it was the hard way).
I got a head start on caregiving as the oldest sibling out of four. I have 4 parents; Mom, Dad, Step-mom, and Step-dad and none of them are married anymore. My mom also ran an in-home daycare when I was growing up so I became well adept at caring for little ones and working with families very early on.
Today I am a mom of 2 myself and a wife to an amazing husband. Life wasn’t always enjoyable for me though. I started my own parenting journey as a single mom who struggled to balance everything from the checkbook to remembering when it was my turn to bring snack for little league.
Too many years, two degrees, and a much more stable life later I naively thought pregnancy, post-partum and family life would be a walk in the park (go ahead, chuckle). Here’s the truth, some days are downright hard, some are blissfully sweet, but when you can balance the two you can land in contentment.
I’ve dedicated my life’s work to educating others and providing a safe, supportive environment to learn, process, and grow. It is my sincerest hope that we can reduce the prevalence of antenatal and postnatal depression, strengthen the family bond and create the safest loving environments for our next generation to flourish.
