I am…….

A wife, mother and yes a G’Mama, and like most people spent many years watching from the sidelines as life passed by. I had a corporate career that I loved yet didn’t feel fulfilled at the end of most days. I worked hard and kept my nose down, kind of afraid to rock-the-boat while I carved out a life for myself and the kiddos. I lived a facade, and pretty convincingly too, yet was often confused about and unappreciative of the greatness I possessed. I let past failures hinder my progress because I settled.

But no more! Every day, it is 100% my responsibility to do what was necessary to live my divine purpose. In part, it means being aware of my authentic presence, what really matters at the moment, and positively impacting whatever I touch. Thank God for a second wind.!

Did you know that how you “SEE” yourself affect how you live, work and play? It affects the decisions you make and how you show up in every situation and relationship. When you SEE yourself clearly and focus on the beauty of your unique strengths, you can bring the change you desire. So, if you seriously want change, are ready to own your strengths and bring the necessary synergy to live fulfilled (in life, business, and relationships), then I want to support you!
