I am a Life Coach, Educator and host of the Sisterhood Podcast. I specialize in mindset and emotions coaching. For the past 10 years, I have been guiding my clients in feeling and processing “negative” emotions so that they don’t take up permanent residence in them. 

In 2009, while I was working through my own healing, a man I worked with said, “you are so f$%king contagiously positive.” This was incredibly impactful on me as being or feeling anything positive had not been my default. It made me really understand the impact we can have on each other lives. 

One thing I knew very early on in my own healing process was that I never wanted anyone to ever feel alone in their experiences or feelings the way I did. So a couple years after being dubbed the contagiously positive girl, I left behind a 10 year career in project management to become a certified life coach. 


The Practice 
How can I put into words what this beautiful business is growing into. To my core, my purpose has always been to share my past and current experiences so that no one ever feels alone in the experiences they are in. 

I started a coaching practice so that I could guide women (men are welcome too) into making they mental and emotional health a top level, code red priority. We cannot bias the inner work. We cannot ignore negative feelings. We are living, breathing, FEELING human beings. We are born with emotions and live in a contrasting world that gives us a lot to feel and respond to. 

That is why it is so important to have a toolkit full of practices, knowledge and support to help you strengthen your mental, emotional, spiritual, attitudinal and physical muscles. 

I offer one-on-one coaching, online self-guided workshops and facilitate full/half day workshops.

We make decisions based on how we are feeling, how we want to feel, or how we think it will make us feel. Wherever we go, and whatever we do, our emotions come along with us. We have a vast, ever moving emotional scale and there is no shame in feeling what we have been conditioned to believe are “negative” emotions. So when it comes to working with organizations, or with individuals in one-on-one coaching, online courses, workshops or speaking engagements, emotional intelligence is built into everything.


The Start of Contagiously Positive
As I mentioned above, I was dubbed Contagiously Positive from a man I worked with in my previous career when I worked for 10 years in General Contracting. He didn’t mean it to be a compliment, but I took it as one because I had not always been a happy woman. In fact, before I decide to make myself a priority, I was unhappy, stuck in the negative vortex (I had actually taken up permanent residence there), I was stressed out, burnt out, unhealthy and felt sick and tired all the time. 

Not to mention I had no vision, no goals and zero idea on how to get from where I was (miserable and unfulfilled) to where I want to go. I went from feeling spiritually, emotionally, physically bankrupt, to being dubbed Contagiously Positive. Not because I never felt a negative emotion, but because I learned how to not take up permanent residence in my negative emotions. 

My personal and professional life are not separate. I live and breathe what I teach because I can be taken down so quickly into the negative vortex. I also believe that if I am going to teach it, I better be practicing it. 

I am committed to serving through my experiences so that no one ever feels alone the way I did. If you choose to work with me one-on-one, take one of the online workshops, hire me to speak at your event, or want to follow all the free and amazing tools, tips and inspiration on my blog, free weekly coaching email, or podcast, I will share with you my own practices that help me step out of the darkness and leap into the light.

I will show you how to experience mental, emotional, and spiritual freedom and also trust that you are on the right path, even when it doesn’t feel like it. 

You are not alone.
