How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?
My life feels most valuable when I’m providing others with hope and helping them discover their purpose.
Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?
My ideal client is someone who wants more out of their life, someone who realizes they have unused potential and they’re willing to work hard to uncover and cultivate it. This is because I would’ve described myself as this person 10 years ago and I remember looking around for someone to guide me. I want to be the person I needed as a young adult.
What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?
I provide coaching heavily based on Motivational Interviewing. I learned this incredible way to communicate that creates a safe space for clients to open up, without judgement. My listening skills are sharp and I take pride in my ability to pick up on my client’s nonverbal cues and gestures which really allows us to connect. Having a long-time background in Physical Therapy, I’m also confident in my ability to create safe and effective exercise programs for my clients.
Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?
My role model growing up (and to this day) is my big brother Dan. He is the most hard-working, generous, philanthropic man I’ve ever known. He taught me at a young age how to be independent and not to be afraid of hard work. He continues to teach me dedication and resilience. One of the most commendable things I think of about Dan is his college experience. Dan joined the Marine Corps on his 18th birthday and began taking college classes while serving our country. His schooling would often be put on hold when he’d get sent on deployment after deployment after deployment. It took him 10 years to get his Bachelor’s Degree, for that reason. But he persevered and it was such a proud moment to see him walk across the stage with his diploma. Whenever I’m having a hard day I know I can count of him for a motivational speech, or a kick in the ass!

Last Memorable Book You Read and Why?
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown. Before I read this book I didn’t realize how much shame impacted my life. It gave me a new perspective and some strategies to living a whole hearted life. I would highly recommend it!
Favorite Movie and Why?
Ooh, this is a tough one! I can’t pick just one but anything starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Bell, or Will Smith. I prefer comedies over any other genres because I like to be able to turn my mind off and just laugh for a couple hours.
