A coach, designer, writer, dog Mom, improv comedy performer, self-proclaimed queen of busting through the bullshit and inspirational hype woman to help you become who you long to be.
Growing up in the midwest, it was clear to me that I wasn’t allowed to have dreams. Girls in my town, got married by 25 and multiple kids by 30. And, if that’s your story, no shade girl, but I always knew, that wasn’t for me.
I remember when I was 16. I had started working two jobs over the summer to pay off my 1989 Honda Civic. I was making a wheat grass smoothie at Jamba Juice when I realized, something awaited me, and this… this wasn’t it.
I knew something awaited me, that was bigger than me...
and I had to get to it.
I moved out of Kansas to the big city of Austin, TX to start creating the life I had dreamt of—to start my career in marketing—or at least, that’s what I thought.
Little did I know that I was being sent to Austin to find my purpose and find myself.
Along the way, I rose through the ranks in the ad industry to become a Creative Director where I helped small businesses and start-ups find their mission, attract their raving fans and scale their profits.
I loved what I did… but I also felt torn. I was burnout, overwhelmed and tired of being the token woman in the room. It had been made clear that my voice wasn’t wanted. That I needed to keep to myself, not talk, not shine, not have a personal life—and let’s not even talk about showing emotions.
I had dreamed of this career. I moved away from my family, my life, what I had always known for my dream, but this wasn’t the dream I was dreaming of.
I was laid off for the 5th time, which is a very common occurrence in the ad industry. But this job… it had really destroyed me. My confidence, my identity, my skills, my voice—I had no idea who I was anymore.
But, like in every other situation, I picked myself up off my couch, put the pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream back in the freezer and applied to another job. But something was off. Sure, I was applying, because that’s what you do when you’re out of a job—but I just wasn’t feeling it.
With every job I applied to, and every rejection letter that followed, someone would slide into my inbox and offer my
work to stay afloat. And when I say someone, I mean someone-I-met-two-years-ago-at-an-event kind of someone.
But, they kept coming. It started to become laughable as I would get a rejection letter, then another email followed with work.
In retrospect, this was the universe looking out for ya’ girl. But, I’m a Taurus, with horse-blinders on.
It wasn’t until the last role I applied for, that I understood. The same day I got the rejection letter, I received four new offers that day. Yes, the universe sometimes has to be a bit over the top but I finally got it.
THE FOLLOWING WEEK, I CREATED MY FIRST BUSINESS.
I am a coach and the women behind Embody Her. I help women every day step into their next level and step into their magic.
I find that my story every woman’s story. We’ve all been told the boxes to cram
ourselves into, the emotions to not feel, the
dreams not to have, the words to not say—and, I say fuck that!
Burn the rules.
Destroy the boxes.
Forget the expectations.
Your life is for you to create.
