I’ll get straight to the point…​

 

I’m not here to play around,

but I will play around while I’m here. 🤓

What that looks like in coaching, training, or speaking, is that while we are tuning deep into the soul, or processing some heavy stuff, I'll still drop an F*bomb with you and belly laugh about the ridiculous reality of this thing we call "life."

​On another serious note… 

I am passionate about helping people rewire their mental, emotional, and physical energy to move beyond "functional trauma" and enjoy life.

I exist to be an inspiring and down to earth guide who helps make the heavy stuff light by tuning in with the soul.

After all, these experiences we call life are pretty freaking wild. Let’s enjoy the ride.

The loss of my brother is my Why

10 days before I turned 7 my older brother Ryan was killed in an accident and it lead me to seek mentorship to fill that void through sports and school. But although I had mentors through coaches and teachers along the way, the void inside persisted. 
 

Therefore, in the midst of an identity crisis when my football career ended, I had an ah-ha moment that “I want to be a mentor to others, just like I have been seeking. And I'll have to do it from the inside out.”

 

So, I’ve done just that since then - cultivating my skills as a sports coach with a Master's Degree in Coaching. As a teacher in high school and university. As a college academic and career advisor. And most recently as a certified Ayurvedic Counselor. While doing my own inner work and development with coaches, teachers, therapists, and mentors. 

 

All as parts of answering my call to mentorship from within.

Going from a depressed football MVP to a Joyful Nomadic Yogi honoring my soul calling.

I believe...
