The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

I changed my major 9 times in college. NINE. I graduated with a degree in elementary education because I was being pressured to “just get a degree in something” Elementary education had the most credit hours so that’s what stuck. Upon graduating, I taught for four years but wasn’t ever completely fulfilled. I still felt there was a void that wasn’t filled. So I went back to college…and changed majors two more times. Eleven majors and I still wasn’t sure “what I wanted to be when I grew up”. I’ve always known I was meant to help others. I’m a 2 on the enneagram for crying out loud. A two. The Helper. After getting a minor in marketing, moving to Dallas, TX and working in a marketing firm for 4 years, I was fired three weeks after coming back from medical leave. The stress had worn me down to the point of my adrenals almost completely quitting on me and when I went back, fired. At this point I started to question everything. Who am I? What now? I’m not fulfilled in corporate America so what am I supposed to do with my life? My career? How will I feed my son, pay bills, LIVE? It was daunting and I was lost. I was depressed and I was stuck.

It was at that point, trying to juggle everything and feeling like a complete failure, I joined a coaching group that focused on helping me find myself. WOW! Coaching helped me uncover my core values and what my highest self looks like. It helped me look at my past and the way that God has shaped every experience to lead me here. The most exciting part of the coaching though taught me to define myself in two words. Two words to describe what I do, no matter what I do. Those two words: Recognizing Potential.
