All careers that I’ve enjoyed in my lifetime. I was an educator for 20 years and watching my students grow and thrive was simply amazing. And then working with adults, brought a whole different level of watching people grow and reach their goals. As an entrepreneur, I was able to expand my personal growth and learn how to navigate obstacles and believe in dreams. As an office manager at a school and then at the women’s center at Virginia Tech, I really discovered my love of coaching people.
I took the StrengthsFinder assessment and received coaching around it. I love assessments because I enjoy discovering what makes people who they are, what their gifts and strengths are and then drawing that out of them so they can see how to use those gifts to live a fulfilled and happy live doing what they love. I took a couple of training classes about how to coach others around the StrengthsFinder and enjoyed that so much that I tried to get everyone I knew to take it so I could coach them. That’s when I realized that coaching was what I do best and enjoy most.
I truly enjoy connecting with people at a deep level, understanding who they are and helping them grow and develop into who they were meant to be. I became a life coach approaching 60 years old. It is never too late to do what you love. It is possible, at any age, to make changes and live your passions.
I am married (29 years) and have one daughter. She is married and lives in California. I have a step-granddaughter and I’m hoping for more grandchildren someday! My husband and I live in Virginia, in the beautiful mountains of the Blue Ridge. I’ve lived here for close to 35 years and still love it. My dad is 95, doing very well and I spend as much time as I can with him. I have many siblings and spending time with family is cherished.
I am a Christian with a very deep faith. I am active in my church as a women’s ministry leader and worship leader. I play piano and keyboard (and a little guitar). I also enjoy dancing, bike riding, hiking, writing and reading. I love to learn and I typically have at least 5 books that I’m reading at any given time.
