Highly empathetic and guilty of putting others’ needs above my own, but working on it. Enneagram 2, aka The Helper. So you know I'm in it to help YOU win it.
ONCE UPON A TIME
Outwardly, it looked to be perfect. I had it all! I convinced myself I was happy, successful and in love. I was the stereotypical over-achiever who needed nobody but myself to be a success. I had built my life to please and impress others, constantly seeking approval for everything I did.
But when it all came crashing down about my ears, I realized how fragile it all was and that I was the wrecking-ball. I thought I could 'fix it'. After all, that's what I had always done, right?
No. I needed to be fixed. Me. I was so broken I had no idea who I really was. And so began a 7 year journey to find and heal me.
For the first time in my life, I started to understand the many complex forces that had been at play within my relationship with my mother. It imprinted all of my relationships, my career, and my physical and emotional health. As an entrepreneur, it determined my success and as a mother, it affected my parenting and conditioned the life of my son.
Without this knowledge, I would have continued to struggle with many issues related to their emotional, social and physical health and well-being and the generational wounding would have continued, affecting all who follow me.
With this knowledge, I took the first powerful steps to reset and unleash my true authentic being into the world with confidence and determination. I experienced JOY and have become the unstoppable woman I was born to be!

I can't whistle. Never have been able to. Probably never will. #secretshame
I say I don't watch TV shows, but I'm a sucker for Netflix. Outlander is my fave!
I still wear skinny jeans, side part my hair and use the cry-laugh emoji. A lot! Suck it, Gen Z.
