"Being an adult is like folding a fitted sheet. No one really knows how."

"Refuse to let fear keep you from living out God's purpose for your life. When you hold back, play small, and hide behind closed doors, you're not serving anyone. We need your gifts, and we need for you to be brave enough to share them in your home, community, and with the world."

My Story

As a perfectly imperfect wife, mom of four, and certified professional coach, I know firsthand the challenges and loneliness that can come with midlife transitions like raising teenagers and preparing for an empty nest. My own journey of upheaval and self-discovery is what sparked my passion for empowering women during this profound life stage.


After nearly two decades in the same town, our family of six went through a major move that uprooted us from our local community. Waving goodbye to friends, my miniature donkey, and the only life I'd known for the past 19 years, I was launched into a new beginning filled with unexpected twists and turns.  


It was during this period of change that I realized just how crucial community support is, especially for us moms. Without it, I experienced higher stress, anxiety, and a sense of detachment. Listening to podcasts became a lifeline, providing much-needed companionship.


This inspired me to create the Life Coach BFF Show podcast with my friend Susan, gifting that same connection to other women in transition. As the show grew, so did my drive to further empower moms navigating the emotional complexities of raising teens and preparing for life after an empty nest.


I pursued intensive coach training and certification to equip myself with proven strategies for helping women rewrite limiting beliefs, rediscover their purpose, and start thriving. My own experiences taught me that community involvement dictates our sense of fulfillment during life's inevitable periods of upheaval.


Today, I'm passionate about being the compassionate guide and supportive community that I once craved. Whether you're feeling lonely, overwhelmed by parenting teens, anxious about your empty nest, or simply craving more joy - I'm here to hold the space for you to unlock your brilliance.


Through transformative coaching programs, my Life Coach BFF podcast, and Midlife Moxie courses, my goal is to provide practical tools, heartfelt wisdom, and an uplifting sisterhood. My approach blends faith, personal growth strategies, and a hefty dose of humor to help you embrace this new midlife season with confidence and purpose.


You don't have to walk this path alone. I understand the unique struggles we face as midlife women because I've been there myself. And I cannot wait to guide you towards rediscovering your spark and falling madly in love with your most vibrant, authentic life!
