Accolades, Credentials and More

Throughout my life, I have learned from and been inspired by the following lessons. They influence and structure my philosophies about life coaching and fitness. 

  • We experience continuous changes throughout our lives. 

  • Even though life does not always go according to our plans, it is still important to focus on our goals and desires. 

  • Through changes in our lives, we can find opportunities to deepen our resilience and strengthen our character.

  • We all struggle with grief and loss in our lifetimes, but we can learn to use these experiences to grow our compassion and wisdom. 

  • Throughout our lives we will come up against challenges and inequity. We can use these injustices to call for a better and more equal normal. 

  • We are all impacted by each other and we all have the opportunity to empower ourselves as we lift up others.

  • Though we cannot add years to our life, we can strive to add life to the years we do have. 

  • We have the power to search for meaning and purpose in our lives

  • Each person has the opportunity and the power to write their own story.
