My day job is being a Certified Life Alignment Coach.

I help people navigate their purpose in life, get clarity in their direction and reach goals.

Most of my clients are professionals who have come to believe their current role isn’t what they were put on this earth to do and they’re wondering what they should be doing. They don’t have an answer, but they know something’s off. 

I work with clients one-on-one, typically for 6-12 months, to help them answer those questions they’ve been spinning their wheels with. Going around and around and not getting a satisfying answer! I guarantee they’ll get results working with me.

I’ve had the frustrating experience in my past of paying for some sort of class, coach or training and not getting the outcome I was told to expect. That’s incredibly frustrating, especially when you’re first starting out and have limited resources, which is why I make a promise to my clients, that results are guaranteed.

I got into this area of work almost by accident. 

I grew up in Australia, got my masters in teaching and was working at a hard-to-staff school—these typically have high indigenous populations, they’re  in remote physical locations and there’s a high percentage of substance abuse and violence.

I loved the kids I worked with, but was quickly burned out by the dysfunctional system. I started to look at what I did and didn’t like about my role and realized the system wasn’t about to change any time soon. 

About this time, (2008) I met a woman who was a life coach—something I’d never heard of before—and took her class on neuro linguistic programming or NLP for short. 

NLP looks at how you process experiences that have happened to you (neuro), how you communicate with others and yourself (linguistic) and the unconscious filters that affect your life (programming). It helps you become conscious of how you perceive life through a certain lens and that you have a choice to change your “filters”!

Part of what I do in my work is help my clients understand the tools and techniques they can use to shift from an undesirable state to a desirable one. This helps people overcome roadblocks and stuck-ness in their life.

My most memorable caffeine is the coffee my husband and I make first thing in the morning. We put our coffee in to-go cups and take a walk with our daughter and our dog. It’s a lovely family time. 

My current caffeine of choice tends to be something flavored because I don’t really like the taste of coffee. Right now, I’m really enjoying Steep and Brew’s Highlander Grog.  

My favorite place for caffeine tends to be home, but I also enjoy Grace Coffee.

The person I’d love to share a cup of caffeine with is my best friend Kat, who died of cancer. It was just the anniversary of her death. I’d love to be able to sit down with her again and laugh over a delicious drink.

World problem that could be solved with the right amount of caffeine: Helping people be their best selves. I get clarity from coffee almost every day and I’m so excited about the work I do. I’m a creator and with the perfect amount of caffeine I can conjure up ways to help people find clarity, believe in themselves and have an impact and life they love.
