On this blog I write about how to love yourself, nurture your dreams, & transform your deepest fears into higher purpose. I also love to create fun 30-Day Challenges for my community!

You’ll find me in the trenches walking right along beside you. I’m not a guru; I’m a regular gal trying to figure things out. This website is my jungle gym of learning, growth and self-exploration.

Want encouragement on your journey? I’m here to help! Subscribe to my newsletter and YouTube channel.

My Story

In early 2016 I had it all—a thriving business, a reliable income, great friends, and I lived in Austin, one of the most popular cities in the US.

BUT I couldn’t resist. I left it all and trekked into the unknown. 


It’s simple really! I kept feeling I needed to explore the very thing that scared me most—an inner longing to live, work, and play anywhere in the world. After much deliberation, fear, and resistance, I finally surrendered and committed to this dream.

I Believe

  • Following your heart is the path “less traveled”. Most of us are familiar with Robert Frost’s famous poem, The Road Not Taken. Life continuously presents us with a choice—which path will we follow? I find the heart to be the center of inner wisdom and truth, and following my heart has been a huge adventure—both scary and miraculous.
  • Fear is a necessary part of your growth and development. Your heart will never lead you astray, but following it will require you to face your dragons. Dragons, you ask? Dragons are your self-perceived limiting beliefs which keep you stuck in resistance and inaction. Ever heard “I want to follow my dream, but how am I supposed to pay the rent?” Or “Dreams don’t buy food.” Thoughts like these are your treasure troves for personal growth.
  • Overcoming fear and self-doubt gets easier with time. Being authentic to who you are requires great courage and faith. If you’re willing to be honest and present with fear, you will find it has the opportunity to transform into higher purpose. This can be difficult to grasp at first, but the more you sit with it, the more you get it.
  • Finally, you are never alone! If you are out there following your dream, you may often feel isolated and alone, but let me assure you, there are many brave wanders traversing the great unknown. Join me and my online community and we will explore life and its many adventures together.

Always here to support and encourage you!
