My Values & Beliefs

Goal Statement

I went from being someone that had suicidal ideation to someone that was deemed a Happiness Expert by the news! I plan to continue expanding my reach to places like the TODAY Show, CBS46, The Oprah Conversations, Peace of Mind with Taraji, and Red Table Talk.

 There are so many of us out there that need to see people that have overcome what we are still going through, that also look like us. Representation in the media MATTERS. I plan to not only help as many people as possible learn that they have everything it takes to live the life that they envision, but also help them make decisions that are in alignment with the vision that they have for their lives.

Coaching Philosophy

One of my main reasons for being a Life Coach is to be what I needed growing up. I aim to show people that have been through similar things that I have been through that there is life on the other side. Not only that- that they deserve to see it.

 I help my clients tap into their core, discover their voice, and chart their paths.

 These are the first steps toward living the life that they envision!
