My Story

Ever since I can remember I have been interested in helping people be the best that they can be. People always came to me with their problems and I loved helping them figure things out. I had a natural ability to inspire, empower and motivate others to overcome the challenges that life threw at them.  The thing was that I was great at helping other people but not so good at helping myself. I was an overworked “yes girl” who was always worried about what other people thought and constantly seeking approval. 

I wanted to live a life where I was embracing who I truly was, however I first needed to figure out who that was.  Now in my head I thought if  I read some books and check some things off my neverending to do list everything would be great. (long story short, it wasn’t). I had spent nearly two decades in the business world working for various businesses both in the private and the public sector. I had learned lots of different skills in the business world but I knew this wasn’t where I was meant to be. I wanted to create my own destiny and not put it into the hands of someone else.

I put my faith in the Universe and followed my heart.

I followed my heart and the first thing to go was my job. I left my job when I had no idea about what I was going to do.  I decided I was going to help other people share their authentic gifts with the world. I had worked with WordPress for a number of years. However I never could really get my website to do or look exactly how I wanted. I had frustration after frustration with getting WordPress to play nicely and I didn’t want a website that just looked pretty. I wanted a freakin’ awesome website that got results.

Two weeks after I had left my job I started my first day of my journey to receive my diploma in website development and design and I loved it. I studied hard and worked on my business. I graduated with my diploma and then completed Marie Forleo’s B-School. I am passionate about lifelong learning and continue to learn new things every day so that I can share my knowledge with you and you can apply it to build an amazing online business of your own. With my combined business, coaching (I have a diploma in Life Coaching), design, marketing, web and digital skills, I am now a digital strategist and web designer. I help people like you create authentic brands, WordPress websites and share web and digital solutions so you have a thriving online business that you and your customers love.

Be 100%



(adj.) Beautiful or creative; divinely inspired; peaceful and perfect.
