More About Me

I'm an eternal optimist. I believe people are inherently good and can achieve anything they set their minds to. I live to love and serve and if you spend any time in my company, I will motivate you to do the same. I am also a serial entrepreneur, avid foodie and life coach in training.

In my spare time I enjoy coaching, motivational speaking, crafting, alternative healing, traveling, reading, creative writing, interior decorating and all things culinary.
