I am a wife, mom, sister, daughter and friend. I’ve been married to my awesome husband Russ for almost 18 years. We have 2 great kids, Rebekah (16) and Lucas (13) and share our home with Mac and Lacy (our Cavalier King Charles Spaniels) and Lola our cat.
When I graduated from Butler University 20 years ago, I became a Special Education teacher. I enjoyed working with families as we set goals and worked to achieve them. There is nothing like encouraging kids to reach their full potential!
When my own daughter was born, I entered the world of the Stay at Home Mom. I loved being home with my kids but at times I secretly struggled to manage my house and chores, schedule my time, and mostly, to just find myself in the middle of it all. I felt alone and sometimes wondered if I was making any significant difference in the world.
During that time, I was fortunate to have several key people in my life who listened and helped me refocus on what was important. I returned to what I knew: I set new goals for myself, worked on those goals in manageable steps, and I remembered to DREAM.
Now, I am a Certified Professional Life Coach and I take what I have learned as a mom and wife, educator and friend and use it help other women who are just like me: longing for significance and purpose, but also attempting to find time to squeeze in a shower!
