Wife of an amazing and very supportive husband and mother of four beautiful children. I experienced and understand firsthand the challenges and difficulties of blended marriages and family life. My own experiences drive my passion to learn and help others. I coach couples who are dating, engaged, married (single and blended family) and the whole family unit including kids and youth. I have 15+ years of experience coaching. 

My certifications include: Professional Life Coach Institute (ICF recognized), Married Life (boot camp), Engaged Facilitator’s/Leaders Training, and the Prepare-Enrich Coach and Facilitator Certification. Couples that participate in sessions with my Prepare-Enrich curriculum will receive a discount on their marriage license at their local county court when they complete the training with me.


My bachelor’s degree is in Counseling and Human Services, and my Associate's degree is in Organizations Management. In the past, I 've worked with troubled teens, and with intensive family intervention teams as a paraprofessional/case manager teaching life skills and behavioral management skills. I look forward to connecting, interacting, educating and empowering you and your loved ones.
