For as long as I can remember I have been sharing my love of learning with others. A constant curiosity has led me to find others with answers as well as to build relationships with others of similar interests and those who themselves were on a quest for more. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Teaching Physical Education and a minor in Sociology, followed with a Graduate Teaching Assistantship and a Master of Arts Degree in Adapted and Corrective Physical Education. Subsequently, I taught in the public school system for 28 years. That experience, coupled with the opportunities afforded me along the way, taught me that the greatest rewards came from supporting others in finding their own answers.
For over four decades I have had the privilege of supporting individuals in formulating their questions and identifying their goals. I have then been honored by the opportunity of helping them find their answers and complete the necessary steps necessary for advancing forward to the completion of their goals.
During this time it became evident that the best learning, with learning being defined as a change in behavior, was that which the learner chose, for a reason, identified what was necessary to make the change, and leveraged the tools and opportunities available to them. This is how I prefer to work with individuals desiring change.
I was successful as a teacher when I empowered my students to take responsibility for their learning. That same principle applies for individuals I have the honor of coaching and training. My focus is to offer guidance and support to navigate obstacles along their journey and empower them to take choose into their best.
When asked what I do, I respond, “I help individuals write the next chapter of their life with the outcome they desire.” By understanding the where and the why a when and a how become attainable.
The process is powerful. Making changes requires transparency. Conversations and lessons need to be honest, deep and real. I can assure you without a doubt you will get the results you are looking for in direct proportion to your level of commitment. The most important question is, “Are you ready?” I know when we are a fit. You will know when you are ready.
You can count on me looking at the whole picture of where you are and guiding your discovery of a clear path together for where you would like to go. Your empowerment will be the primary focus. Incorporating these into all aspects of your life will follow, and the alignment of your daily being to the destination you want to reach is the ultimate goal.
I believe we are all unique and special individuals negotiating this amazing path called life. Every day I wake up in wonder of all that surrounds me. I am inspired by ordinary people doing extraordinary things. I am committed to my personal well-being in all aspects of my life. Learning and applying new skills and information are my daily motivation. They are what feeds my being. I accept the responsibility of sharing what I know and know how to do to make the world a better place.
