At first glance, you might think that all of my talents have come easily. Yes, I have been blessed with a wide variety of talents & gifts. Yes indeed, I have put forth great effort to develop these gifts. My greatest talent, however, lies in my gift to positively influence people of all ages, with a particular gift and path of teaching, encouraging, and inspiring children.

Magic Is Real

I learned at the age of 10 that my work with young children was simply magical. It started with infant & child care that included joyfully entertaining the children I was hired to protect & care for. By age 16, I began to teach children how to swim and developed a following that I could hardly keep up with.  I manifested very quick results with all of the children I taught. I eventually transitioned that work into a local privately owned seasonal swim business and continue to connect with beautiful children and families. 

Dreams Do Come True

My work with young children evolved into enriching the lives of middle school students through visual arts, art appreciation, art making, and social & emotional learning. Throughout my teaching career, I began to freely share my family, consumer, & human sciences developing knowledge base – on a strictly volunteer basis. Ten years into this practice of sharing extensive amounts of wellness, family, & consumer knowledge, I am able to offer lifestyle transformation strategy coaching & inspiration through this creative online platform.  The life that I have led and currently lead, is what I have named The Essential Lifestyle™.  I live what I teach and have evolved through countless challenges that enable me to share my knowledge, based on personal experience and wisdom.

Design Your Life

Regardless of how challenging each day, month, or year may be, I am living my dream. Regardless of the financial compensation, my life is rich and filled with abundance because I have designed my life to be centered on giving of myself to others, in positive ways. Although it is important to find balance and be able to support oneself in this modern world, the rewards of helping others cannot be measured in dollars. Do I live in poverty?… thankfully no. Do I own 5 mansions across the globe?…thankfully no, that would be a frivolous waste of my energy! Do I have the ability to manifest the necessities in life that will assist me in maintaining health, happiness, and unlimited abundance?… YES!

Nourish Your Inner Child

No matter what your current age, it is incredibly important to nurture and nourish the child within you. In today’s technology laden world, it is easy to be pulled into a vortex that rocks our naturally balanced state of wellness. Simplifying and going back in time where we escape from technology for pockets of time, can help to restore the peace & happiness within. Children most especially, need to connect with nature and be allowed to use their imaginations for healthy entertainment that encourages freedom of self-expression, innovative thinking, and overall centering.  We too need to nourish our inner child in order to maintain happiness and support good health.
