Hello! And thanks for stopping by. It’s really an honor to share a little about myself with you.
I’m a Christian life coach and communicator who shares the joy of a life found in Christ with the world. My vocation is to help people rekindle their passion, discover their purpose, and fulfill their potential. But my mission is to encourage and strengthen genuine faith and emotional wellness in your daily life.
As a woman of faith, I believe in the importance of a healthy relationship with Christ. As a child of an abusive, alcoholic father, I know that we are not defined by what has happened to us. As an imperfect wife and mother, I am committed to using failures as stepping stones instead of stumbling blocks.
That’s all that’s important, but if you really want the nitty gritty continue reading.
Career & Education
After retiring from an extensive corporate career developing employees and leaders with a Fortune 100 company, I founded Wild Grace Coaching to help clients develop their fullest potential. I believe that God intends for each one of us to flourish and it’s my privilege to come along side clients as they cultivate a life that helps them do just that. I also serve in the Prayer and Care Ministry of my local church as the Lay Counseling Supervisor.
I’m a Board Certified Master Christian Life Coach (IBCC), Strengths Champion Certified Coach, and am pursuing certification as a Mental Health Coach. I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling, a Bachelors Degree in Psychology, an Advanced Certificate in Christian Life Coaching, a Graduate Certificate in Theological Studies, and a Certificate in Chemical Dependency Counseling. Additionally, I have both Associate in Claims and Senior Claim Law Associate designations in P&C Insurance.
As an author my work includes both fiction and non-fiction, with books such as Lessons for the Journey and Hope from the Pit . I’m a semi-active blogger, and an occasional freelance writer for both radio and print media. I hold memberships in Realm Makers, Faithwriters, Nonfiction Authors Association, and American Christian Fiction Writers.
I’m happily married to my college sweetheart and through steadfast love, deep faith, and frequent laughter we have weathered many storms of life including infertility, sibling suicide, and chronic health issues. For more than a decade we lived as the sandwich generation, raising our now grown and beautiful daughter while caring for my ailing mother who suffered with dementia.
I’m a Louisiana bayou girl, married to a Detroit city boy, living in the piney woods of Texas with two rescue dogs. I love adventure and relish the chance to hike and ski in the mountains, scuba-dive in the ocean, or travel to interesting places, but I’m also an introvert. That means I’m most content simply spending quiet time at home, with loved ones or a good book, or outside in our backyard magic forest.
Finally, I love books, pizza, waterfalls, and animals, though not necessarily in that order. And that is far more than enough about me.
But I’d love to know more about you. So, please use the contact form to share about yourself, or just to let me know how I can pray for you today.
