As an Actor and collegiate athlete I've been very good at grinding it out. It was the one way I knew how to measure my success. If I wasn't exhausted, stressed out, busy, working all hours of the day and night, auditioning nonstop, I was convinced I wasn't good enough and I needed to grind harder.
I would go from one thing to the next. One idea to the next great idea. One thrill to the next thrill. Frantically searching for the next best thing to get me ahead. It was like the episode of Spongebob Squarepants where the little Spongebob's in his brain were frantically running around setting shit on fire and shredding important files.
It was absolute chaos.
There is nothing wrong with the above, it got me this far in my success, right? I could have continued like this forever, after all, it was extremely comforting for me to stay in the weeds; it's how I knew to operate for so long!
Here's the thing, I did not want it anymore. I was so sick and tired of riding the same gosh darn merry-go-round hearing the same song over and over again. I was over my bullcrap and the constant doing. I was hungry for transformation.
We are human Beings and I left my Being in the dark for way too long. It was so lovely to get reacquainted with her again. I started acknowledging my power and my authentic self. I became present to how worthy I was and how much abundance I was already sitting in. I started trusting myself and my gut instincts again. I signed with a new Manager and started booking Acting work more consistently. I deepened the connections in my relationships. I finally said no to hospitality jobs, like whaaaaat!? I began experiencing so much more adventure, love, happiness, and gratitude.
I sprayed those damn weeds with natural chemicals and chose to Boldly Be.
The coaching industry is currently unregulated, allowing anyone to declare themselves a coach regardless of training and credentials.
I am an International Coaching Federation (ICF) certified coach, ACC. The ICF is the gold standard in coaching certification.
In addition, I am a certified graduate of a year-long intensive Coaches Training Program, Accomplishment Coaching, where I completed 216 program hours in order to build an elite foundation to my coaching practice.
In tandem with coaching, I am a TV/Film + Commercial Actor. I've been an artist since I was a kid with aspirations of being the next Picasso.
I accidentally stumbled upon acting after college. Unbeknownst to me, acting is what kicked off my transformation journey. One of the biggest decisions I chose was to leave my career as an Interior Designer to pursue my passion for acting.
