The Short Version
I’ve enjoyed an eclectic twenty-year career that spans work as a news anchor, a political appointee in Washington D.C., University chaplaincy, and consulting at leading global firms. I’ve mentored hundreds of women and college students in topics of spiritual, personal and professional development. I’ve earned a Master’s degrees from the University of Texas and Princeton Theological Seminary. I have the joy of serving Soldiers and their families as a reserve chaplain.
Meeting people, exploring cultures and traveling are my hobbies. I’ve traveled to 30 countries and recently spent a year teaching in the People’s Republic of China. A native of the U.S. Virgin Islands, I am a lifelong pilgrim, traveling the globe to find its most beautiful beaches and sacred spaces.
My Story – The Long Version
I remember the day when it hit me like a ton of bricks: I was living on autopilot, gazing at a distance at the great unknown, living the 9 to 5 grind making good money. I was living life, but not loving it. The fire was gone.
I knew there had to be something more, but I had no idea how to get it. My soul was calling me outside of my comfort zone to move, speak up, stand out, get into inspired action, and live the dream that was hidden in my heart. But I was stuck, frustrated, tired, and afraid. Through prayerful tears, I took the long commute home asking myself, “Why are you playing small? God has so much more for you!” It was a painful moment but in that raw and vulnerable place of being sick and tired of being sick and tired, I made a vow that very day to find a way out of that pit of despair, and to do whatever it took to live a meaningful, joy-filled life, with God at the steering wheel. I wanted to take the adventure following God’s lead while redefining success from God’s perspective.
I didn’t leave my job that day. I learned how to love the life I had on the way to the one I wanted. I upleveled my skills, adjusted my attitude, found opportunities to live my faith and gifts more authentically. It was a long and hard road with lots of tough lessons and an army of amazing (and patient) guides. But the work I now do is a testament that we are meant to take leaps of faith in life and career. This is the place of the wonderful, wild unknown — where joy, dreams, and possibilities live.
There is nothing special about me. Something wonderful awaits us all — if we would only answer the call.
It’s my calling to inspire leaders, especially women, to discover and passionately pursue their purpose. I help women find the courage they need to follow their God-adventure.
I’ve done this work for almost 20 years. I’ve traveled extensively teaching the communication, leadership, and personal development skills I’ve learned from the best consulting firms, leadership gurus, and organizations in the industry—and of course, the school of hard knocks.
Born and raised in America’s paradise, the U.S. Virgin Islands, I came to the mainland to earn Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. Recently, I fulfilled another dream: to live overseas, learn a new language and culture in mainland China. It was a blast.
Today, I serve young adults and careerists, especially women of faith as a transformational coach. I help people get unstuck so they can find the courage to take their leap of faith in work and life. I help you get your breakthrough so that you can move from fear to faith at work and in life. Sounds too good to be true? Wait and see. Nothing is impossible to those who believe.
I believe we can change the world by unlocking the dreams that lie dormant within our hearts and minds. I believe God has gifted me to help you awaken to your calling so you can make a meaningful difference in the world.
I’m honored to partner with you on the journey; it’s the work I was created to do!
