Next Came Motherhood
My passions growing up were animals, gymnastics and learning. I started reading self-development books as a tween and never looked back.
My bachelor's degree is in sociology. I love studying human behavior and psychology.
I have worked at a tiger sanctuary and have also worked as
a zookeeper, both located in Texas.
I have hand fed lemurs, trained tigers and kissed a kudu!
I reluctantly moved back to Minnesota (Brrrrrr) to be with my then boyfriend (now husband) and switched from the zoo world to the veterinary world by becoming a certified veterinary technician.
It was at this point that I stumbled into a life coach and spent the next year doing the most effective and transformative work that I have ever come across.
I broke free of the self-judgement and ridiculous expectations
I had put on myself.
I reignited my marriage and started having way more fun despite having opposite schedules, a cranky toddler
I learned to fully embrace and love my body exactly as it was.
For the first time in my life, I developed a default of calm in my body instead of the on-edge restlessness I was used to.
Coaching healed me a a way that was beyond what talk therapy and holistic health practices had.
I felt deep in my soul that my insatiable desire to gain knowledge, my past trauma, and my unique life experiences combine to be a force for healing and wellness.

Let's check out the details!
My husband and I were beyond thrilled to become parents, but I was not prepared for my postpartum experience.
Our son was born with severe colic and my husband worked nights as a K9 police officer.
My son was unsettled, slept terribly and screamed for hours on end.
By the time my son was 5 months old I was diagnosed with postpartum anxiety, depression and PTSD.
I could never have imagined feeling that terrible.
A year of traditional therapy and medication got me back to a state of decent functioning again, but I still felt exhausted and overwhelmed much of the time.
Being a mom had always been my biggest life goal and I adored my son, but I knew deep down that this wasn't thriving. Next came discovering my son's several anaphylactic food allergies and we had several terrifying trips to the emergency room.
I would love to stay connected and bring you humorous, encouraging and thought-provoking messages to your inbox.
