WHERE I BEGAN...
I grew up in Denver, Colorado and moved to Atlanta, GA after high school to attend Emory University. I was a Business Major with concentrations in Finance & Marketing, and a Visual Arts Minor. From a young age, I was a perfectionist and an overachiever and I put a lot of pressure on myself - can you relate? I graduated with a 3.9 GPA in the top 20% of - what was at the time - the #3 undergraduate business program in the country.
After graduation, I moved to Minneapolis, MN and started working straight away as a Business Analyst at Target Corporation. Within 3 years I was...
What inspired me to become a wellness professional?

How my clients describe their first visit?
My clients feel comfortable with me right away and have described me as: kind, empathetic, knowledgeable, organized, creative and intuitive.
They have described their first sessions as: borderline magical, just what they expected, nothing like they expected, spiritual, insightful, amazing, and life changing. (Just watch the youtube video linked to my page on the left hand side for a client interview after one session!)

What I say to someone who has never tried
Coaching is not therapy, which goes into depth about various issues, usually dealing with the past, nor is it consulting which generally results in giving the client answers.

It is also a more holistic approach to creating a full “experience” out of every session which may include physiology, guided meditations, mindset work, etc.
