LYs Story quote

Who knew…

A scrawny, puny, terrified of her own shadow six-year old, growing up in poverty turned abused teen single mom would one day become an award-winning author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and empowerment advocate.


How did I do it?

One word: courage. But courage didn’t come easy. It took having to confront some of the most terrifying moments of my life.

I remember it so vividly.

I had just lost my mother, I was going through a divorce, had walked away from a lucrative 20+ year corporate career, liquidated all my assets, broke into my piggy bank, and defied my family and friends who looked at me sideways.


All in the name of embracing
a more meaningful and purposeful life.

Then my monsters showed up. And I was afraid of change; afraid of failing; afraid of what people would think. I was stuck. And every negative thing that could happen was happening to me.

I felt so discouraged, so alone.

Until one day, I broke down bawling to my three-year-old granddaughter who listened patiently. Then with a natural sense of innocence and wisdom she said: Just don’t look at the monsters.

It was her honest words, a moment of truth, that gave me the courage to confront my monsters—a journey that stripped me bare, down to all that was beautiful and painful and sobering.


Now I’m committed to
empowering and inspiring you!

I don’t proport to be a psychologist, guru or have any life coaching certifications whatsoever. But for as long as I can remember, I have always been passionate about inspiring others to do and be their very best.

Whether your best is to advance in your career, start a new business or improve your personal life, I want to share all that I have lived and learned to help you become unstuck, so that you too, can step into your passion, purpose and power!

From my heart to yours,
