Helping You Create a Life you Love!

The world is a busy place, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by life. We all struggle to navigate the chaos, reduce stress, increase happiness, and find meaning.

For me (and perhaps for you), this has been tricky. I’m sensitive to others’ wants and needs; I’ve fallen into people pleaser mode more than is healthy for me. I wasn’t always able to set healthy boundaries or identify my priorities in life.

Fortunately, I’m also insatiably curious about personal growth. I’ve spent more than 20 years obsessing learning about discovering better and better ways to quiet the noise, identify my priorities, and organize my life around what’s most important to me.

Of course, it takes a village. I constantly scan the horizon for other truth-seekers such as writers, speakers, and teachers so I can gobble and apply their wisdom to my own life. (Those who astound me with their honesty and insightfulness AND make me laugh out loud…?? Well, I’m a fan for life.)

If you were to drop by my house for a visit, you’d probably find me hanging out with the man of my dreams (my husband, Michael) and our two dogs, Truman and Sadie. Or perhaps you’d find me reading, cooking, or playing music. 

If the weather’s nice, you’ll have to knock really loud because we’re most likely in our back garden – often with a glass of wine.

What is your happy place?

Do you take steps each day to reduce stress, live your priorities,
and cultivate joy in your own life?
