Coaching Credentials

I have had a lifelong fascination with personal improvement and attainment, setting goals and pushing through comfort zones.  Over the years, and especially through my own personal challenges, I have gained a unique and valuable perspective on the role our mind plays.  

I am passionate about the coaching and mentoring work I do and live my life with passion also.  I pride myself in the quality service I provide my clients, and the high level of results I bring.
