Light the fire in your life!
On the surface, I look like I’ve got it all together.
I’m a mom, grandma, world traveller, business owner, coach, keynote speaker, and author of several books. But the road to ‘success’ has been paved with heartache and difficulty. Sadly, it was the death of my husband that triggered an awakening in me, a realization that I was meant for more.

Ironically, it was while building a thriving business that restores crumbling walls and repairs cracked foundations, that I learned how to break down the walls that separated me from every dream just waiting on the other side.
