Live a life you love to live—Do you know how to start living the life you love to live?  

So how did I find my calling as a life coach you ask?  The journey started with some really painful and challenging experiences in my life. Although my experiences may be different from yours, what I learned through the process allows me to support you as you learn to live the life you love to live. 

In my teen, I endured the sudden loss of my father.  Then as a young woman, I gave birth to a very ill son.  Learning to handle this terrifying new path of being a mother to a child diagnosed with autism was scary.  It affected how I saw myself as a woman and as a mother, as well as affecting all of my relationships.  I felt empty as I compared myself to other mothers with " normal kids", and knowing my son and I will never share the same experiences hurt me to my core. 

Later in my 30's, my husband was diagnosed with cancer.  The unresolved pain of losing my father at a young age came flooding back, and it sank me into depression. 

On the outside, it looked like I was keeping it together - I was being a supportive wife, going to chemo and radiation appointments while taking care of my husband and my son.  That was until it became crystal clear that my husband's time on this earth was coming to an end.  I remember feeling numb as I watched all of these people at his funeral, thinking to myself " what am I going to do now? ".

I realized I had to choose to be strong for myself and my son.  I had to learn how to navigate what was in store for us.  I did this by making a detailed plan, challenged myself to be a better woman and mother - one that I knew I was capable of being and destined to be.  With a new plan, unwavering hope in my heart and a great spirit for adventure - my son, our Golden Retriever and I moved across the world to Sweden.  And you know what? 

With time and healing, I found a new love, learned to blend a family of teenagers, and all while navigating a whole new country and culture! 

The pain, the hurt and the lessons learned during my life have all been essential to my growth.  I have gained self- confidence, compassion and perserverance in the face of adversity.  These are the things that I want to give you!

help us be stronger. "
