My Inner Touchstones

My Values

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.
