What started as a passion for creating community, helping people and teaching yoga, has transformed into a coaching business where I work with ambitious and innovative women who are driven by purpose and a passionate desire to create and expand businesses, offerings and trainings that will make an impact on the world.
I am on a mission to partner with as many women as possible to help them step into their fullest potential and live a life of excellent. A life that has a Ripple-Effect Impact on the world. I believe impact happens when we take our potential, infuse it with purpose and get into action!
The only person who can rob you of your potential is you!
I have been in action nearly all of my life. Even as a teenager, I knew there was something big waiting for me out in the world. I always challenged anyone who told me I could not do anything and never backed down when things got hard.
I started working as soon as I was allowed, at the age of 15, stuffing crust at Pizza Hut™️. I loved to work and I loved excelling at everything that was tossed my way. When I turned 18, I could not wait to venture off to college. To go out on my own and make my way in the world. I was never scared of trying new things, taking risks and going big.
Post-college, I started working in the medical research industry. I loved figuring things out, combing through the details, testing things, having them fail to then have to start over and test again. Failure was inevitable, and it was also the necessary step needed to finally discover something truly extraordinary.
Something that would change the world.
I moved to project management, creating systems and overseeing departments and eventually found myself in the sales industry in 2010, managing my own clients and accounts, my first taste of entrepreneurship.
And I was hooked.
In 2014, I opened HEART & GRIT Power Yoga. I dove into owning a yoga studio and becoming a masterful yoga teacher with all my heart and soul. After a few years I saw the need for something bigger than yoga classes and trainings and created SHIFT2LEAD in 2017. In 2020, due to COVID and my newly diagnosed leukemia, I had to make a choice. I made the decision to close my yoga studio and put all of my attention on my coaching business, and I haven't looked back since.
All along this journey, I noticed ways I needed to shift, pivot, and change things up in order to return to my purpose-driven potential. Several times I found myself stumbling, settling, and compromising my life and what I was up to. Usually it was because I was holding up other's values, leading other's content and constraining myself to teach and lead in a way that just wasn't authentic or even joyful. It took sometime, but I unlearned things that had been drilled into me so I could once again align with myself. Align with my values and my purpose. And from that place I could truly expand!
It was only when this happened that my business become impactful, easeful and successful!
And from that place it all came together and my latest brand emerged.....
HEART & GRIT coaching
Expansion as a human isn’t comfortable work. It takes courage, humility, conviction and an obsession for personal growth. It requires mental and emotional toughness. It can be messy when leveraging failure which requires next level self love. As a content creator, trainer of coaches, business coach and mentor, I see the ways people continually must shift out of what’s got a hold on them and back into what lights them up so they can realize their fullest potential.
I believe each person has the potential to lead and inspire and that it lies in their own unique field or area of expertise.
Often what is between you and success is just yourself.
Once we get out of our own way, we can step into our own purpose and start contributing to the world. And contributing in a way that brings us joy, aligns with our values and leaves us feeling fulfilled.
I’m here to help you do just that.
HEART & GRIT was created to support you in the creation of your purpose-driven life and business!
You can rely on me to support and guide you as you upgrade your career and business while also re-establishing trust back into your life. I’m bringing all my skills, training and experience to help you create the life of excellence you deserve.
