What does it mean to LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE?
What needs to happen for you to live your best life right now or in the near future? Maybe you need to make changes in your business, relationships, health, and stress (we don’t need that!). Maybe you want to grow spiritually or you are seeking more balance and joy in your life.
I’m a mother, a grandmother, a certified life coach, and a fitness buff.
And I am a wonderfully made creation of God to Whom I give thanks everyday.
I’m getting a new website soon, but I’m really glad you stopped my current site by today! While you are here, I’ll tell you a little about myself.
I was raised in a North Carolina mill town by a former prisoner of war and his loving wife (my mama and daddy!). I was the college student who earned high honors but plunged into an eating disorder that was a major life interruption. I married one of my college sweethearts (one!) and gave birth to my first son nine months and seventeen days after I said, “I do!”
Four years later, my semipro athlete husband was hit by a loaded dump truck and lost his right leg. We lost nearly everything we had, so we regrouped and relocated from South Carolina to Virginia to start anew. It was a great leap of faith, as we knew no one in our new city. And we had another son two months after moving! Three years after he was born, my husband and his father were killed at sea, and my husband’s body was never found. I raised my boys alone for over 15 years. I was kind of out in La La Land for a short while and made a bit of a mess of my life. Thank goodness I healed. Yes, there is hope even in our messes!
Now, what you are reading could be more professionally written, just listing my career highlights. But I want you to connect with me, to know a little about the woman and not the professional coach. I’ve lived a life, and I savor it daily, even in challenging times; and I am all about balance and joy and purpose with a whole lot of hope.
It’s MY hope that in working with you, I can empower you to stop being stuck and live each day to its fullest-however that looks to you. In fact, I’m still easing out of “stuck” in a few areas of my own life. I don’t profess to be perfect!
With me as your coach, you will have a multi-certified and encouraging partner on your journey. Together, with you as the leader (Yes, coaching is client driven, but I provide the tools and resources!), we can create a plan for you to thrive holistically, addressing all parts of your life and focusing on those areas where you really need some refining.
You can view my current coaching packages here. I do offer a FREE 30-minute “Let’s Get to Know Each Other” phone call to learn about you and your desires and for you to learn a little about me. Schedule your call on my coaching page.
Random facts about me which you may or may not want to know!
- My first job out of college was teaching second grade in a rural public school.
- I am a magna cum laude graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (Go Spartans!).
- I co-hosted a local TV show for four years. The coolest thing I did? Interviewing artists at a major nationally ranked fine art show. The most embarrassing moment? Reporting on a rabid raccoon that was seen in my city. That little report required about 15 retakes because yours truly couldn’t get through it without laughing. (And rabid raccoons are nothing to laugh about!).
- I love worship, studying scripture, and sipping on a nice red wine. Crackling fires, rocking chairs, good books, nature, and long, vigorous walks nurture me, too.
- For my 40th birthday, clad in pearls and my Eddie Bauer blazer, I went to a tattoo joint and got inked. I usually forget I have that tiny rosebud on my right shoulder.
- My older son is an Army officer with a beautiful wife and three beautiful daughters… objective, aren’t I?
- My younger son is an Apple Genius and a musician/producer. He’s the best drummer around! My objectivity runs deep.
- My late husband continued to set athletic records after losing his leg– and even pushed himself in a wheelchair racer over 1300 miles up the East Coast.
- I met my fiancé Earl at our company’s cafeteria salad bar many years ago. He likes to say I was reaching for the beets but scooped up his heart instead. Actually, I don’t like beets.
- As a nonprofit professional, I raised millions of dollars, started funding initiatives, and even created a preschool program that still teaches little ones the importance and magic of art.
- I love God. I love my family. I would love to work with you!
