Being a mom is one of the most incredible roles you'll ever take on in life. The rewards are priceless, but sometimes the commitment can make you lose sight of your own identity – I get it, I've been there too.
Now that my own kids are all grown up and I've gone through my own journey of self-discovery, I've come to realize that my purpose in life is to use my gifts and knowledge to support other moms going through their unique journeys, and to be there for teen girls who might be feeling insecure or alone.
My mission is to teach the next generation that self-worth is the key to success in every aspect of life. Without it, we're selling ourselves short of our true potential. Let's embark on this empowering journey together!
