Tell us your bold boss story!:
I was working as a high risk labor and delivery nurse which was such an amazing job. I loved helping families during the most exciting and at times, worst times of their lives. It was a true honor. However, I noticed it was at my own expense. I started having awful migraines, felt exhausted on my days off and was feeling really depleted. I switched to working in a school setting, however it was still not the right fit as I was still not in a position to fully give myself the self care that I needed. I started teaching yoga and went back to school to become a coach. For the last two years I have been working as a Self Care and Mindset coach helping other burnt out entrepreuners, business owners and professionals incorporate daily self care into their lives to feel more empowered to become happier, healthier and ultimately more successful. I use my background as a registered nurse, yoga instructor and essential oils educator in my work with clients and I love how all my skills complement one another. I feel so blessed that I have finally found my calling where I can help people live their best lives and not have to lose myself and my health in the process. It is my mission to coach as many people as possible so they too can feel balanced and have more energy to share their light with the world.
We're all about bold boss moments, tell us about one of yours!:
Making the move into coaching full time was a huge leap for me. I had to step way outside of my comfort zone of my bi-weekly paychecks and trust that my business would be sustainable and flourish. It was the scariest thing I did, but it has been so rewarding and I would not change a thing. There was a lot of mindset work that got me ready to make the leap, but I was super proud that I did and have not looked back once!
