My Inner Touchstones
Authenticity, growth, relationships, joy, and service.
My Core Desired Feelings
Abundant, centered, connected, light and strong.
We are all on a growth journey.
Every single day we are learning something new about ourselves and the world around us. Working with my own coach is part of my own growth journey.
I believe in service and that it is our responsibility as humans on this earth to give back to our community.
My personal mission is to value the relationships I have with family and loved ones, to contribute to the betterment of my community and to strive for continuous self-improvement.
I read A LOT, mostly fiction. I also get outside among the trees or on the river as much as I can; hiking or paddle boarding. My regular yoga and meditation practice keep me grounded.
