My childhood was easy-going, enjoyable, and full of laughter. Although I was surrounded by love, I always felt very average. Eleven years ago, I came to the realization that I no longer wanted to settle for mediocrity. I wanted to live a life infused by energy and purpose. With this realization, I decided to go back to school and obtain a Business degree, which was the first step of the journey to where I am today.
One of the most important elements of my journey to living a more purposeful and empowered life was building relationships with people who would lift me up, support me, and hold me to high standards. These people fulfill mentorship roles in my life and always push me to be the best I can possibly be. This has led me to take more control of my life, and has helped me to achieve greater fulfillment in my roles as a wife, daughter, and a friend.
I live in a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska with my husband, Dave-- the love of my life. At some point in the future, we aspire to have the freedom to travel to other areas of the country and the world. Our desire to travel is fed by our mutual love of experiencing what the world has to offer.
My identity as a child of God is incredibly significant in defining who I am. I was raised in a church and went to a Christian day school until I reached junior high. Matthew 19 says: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” This is a verse that touched my heart when I was a young girl, and I have continued to carry it into my daily life. I have spent the past fifteen years working with youth, and I intend to stay involved with that line of work for years to come. I currently work as a church Administrative Assistant and Youth Director. My experience as the Youth Director has been fruitful in so many ways; the kids I have worked with over the years have taught me more than I could ever dream of teaching them. I am endlessly grateful for the opportunity I have to help mold young minds, and I believe my work with teenagers has given me the skills to show deeper love to adults as well. My lifelong mission has been to be of service to others and watch them fulfill their deepest purpose in this life. This passion for loving and serving people, and helping them overcome their struggles to become their most extraordinary selves has brought me full circle into my role as a life coach. I feel blessed to be in a career that gives me daily opportunities to do what I love and feel most called to do, and I am thankful to all my clients, friends and family who allow me to be a part of their lives.
