From a young age, I knew I wanted to help others, I just didn’t know in what capacity. After growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I set off for college, earning a B.A. in political studies from Whitworth University. During my senior year, I realized I had a passion for sexual health and education so I went and earned my a Masters in Education in Human Sexuality, became a Certified Sexuality Educator, and worked as a sexuality educator in Indianapolis, Indiana. I quickly recognized that I aspired to help individuals and families in a more collaborative manner (i.e. through counseling and advocacy) so I went back to graduate school and received an M.S. in Mental Health Counseling, became a Certified National Counselor, and opened my own mental health and sex therapy practice in Puyallup, WA. During that time, I also worked as an adjunct instructor for the University of Phoenix-Western Washington Campuses. My husband’s military medical career took us to Texas where I stayed at home with our three young children. Despite being a full-time stay at home mother, I found myself drawn back to working with women and parents. I would speak at parenting groups and encourage women who came up to me afterwards. I realized how much I missed working with clients and decided to pursue coaching full time. After completing my life coaching certification, I feel prepared to help my clients achieve their goals.
