About Me

"I believe in happily-ever-after. It's absolutely possible & realistic!"

I promised myself that I would never get a divorce.

When my parents’ marriage ended in divorce, I promised myself that it would never happen to me.

25 years later, I was divorced. My parents did the best they could. I did the best I could. But I felt like a failure. I was full of grief, and I was embarrassed. What happened?

In my mid-20’s, I fully believed that I was well prepared for marriage. On paper, I was a shoe-in for being the most qualified potential partner, certainly worthy of the super star spouse & the happily-ever-after marriage of my dreams. However, post marriage, I realized that I had no idea how to do "happily-ever-after."

As a young adult, I had the most potential to save my marriage, even before it began, but I didn’t have the tools. This led to many years of heartache, loneliness, depression, anxiety, and hopelessness. Resentment set in as I struggled to do my best and had to face the fact that my best wasn’t good enough. I was mad at God for not rewarding my efforts.

A new life!

After my divorce, God did reward my efforts as I dedicated myself to learning how to have a real relationship based on unconditional love. Pain has a funny way of opening the door to a willingness to learn and a willingness to be wrong. I was open. I was listening.

I found someone to coach me as I opened up to truth and love. I did my emotional work of healing, receiving, learning, & growing. I went through a transformation that changed the way I live and how I see the world. I finally felt free to be me and free to be happy. I felt confidence and peace like I had never known before! And I noticed a new kind of connection to God and His love for me.

Two of many transformative experiences.

1.    Among several fears that melted away, I lost my fear of flying. I used to get a panic attack just thinking about booking a flight. Now, I cannot wait to get on a plane and fly!

2.   I met and married the man of my dreams, literally. If you ask me, I’ll tell you the story. He is my soulmate; my best friend. We have the tools and we have the happily-ever-after marriage that I always hoped for, but never believed was possible. I did NOT believe in soulmates! And yet, here I am. Living the dream.

Something wonderful happened. Love.

Love – how to have happy, healthy relationships – became my life’s highest calling.


I couldn’t imagine not sharing the love and the tools that transform lives. This has led me to coaching certifications, hosting young adult coaching calls, support groups & classes, and The 100 Interviews project. Now I get to share the good news that love is possible for you! Join me in a journey filled with the joy of self-discovery and connection.

We post a monthly anniversary photo of us on a private Instagram account that only the two of us can see 😉

I used to have glasses just like these in 6th grade.
