I’m a certified life coach, personal finance nerd, foodie and occasional shopaholic (which is why it’s only right I also be a finance nerd ;-), it’s a balancing act).
Growing up I thought I wanted to become an attorney, recognizing my desire to help others. But what I didn’t know acknowledge was my knack for helping people with everyday life issues.
My father tried to open my mind to personal growth but I wasn’t ready. So, it wasn’t until I was well into adulthood that I started to experience episodes of self-discovery. That is when I discovered my true desire and ability to help others without the legal system.
By this time I was so distracted with the responsibilities and expectations of being an adult I didn’t pursue my passion. After a number of years I realized I was stuck in an unhappy place. I was no longer making the progress that I made during my academic career.
I wanted my life to be better, to be how I had always imagined as a child. I didn’t want to be like all the other people who gave up and settled for less than thrilling lives. I wanted to live life, not just merely exist.
I knew I had to get unstuck by challenging everything and doing things I wasn’t used to. And so I did. Along the way I learned a lot about being stuck and getting unstuck, but most importantly how to move to the next level and attain happiness. That’s why I’m the best person to help you.
And that’s how I turned things around. How I got unstuck and to a place where I can help people the way I always knew I could.
Additionally, I have years of experience as a professional focusing on behaviorism, psychology and sociology. Becoming very familiar with mental and behavioral characteristics and advising others on how to improve various affected aspects. I also have formal education in social and behavioral sciences.
