What do you like best about coaching?

Being a part of the life journey of someone who wants to experience healing, growth and freedom to be all God created them to be.

Why did you choose to do coaching?

There have been times when I’ve felt stuck, alone and perplexed - wondering where to turn for help. Having experienced the benefits of coaching in my own healing journey, I am eager to share the positive difference it can make with others. I have found many very beneficial tools to bring soothing to emotional pain and/or help in achieving personal goals. I love facilitating the power of these tools in the lives of others.

How do you recharge on your day off?

I recharge by spending time in nature and with God and by doing recreational activities with family and friends. I especially enjoy bushwalking.

What are your three favourite things?

1. Spending time with God - meditating on His word, prayer journaling, and spending time in nature.

2. Sharing life with my husband and being a part of the lives of our young-adult children.

3. Seeing people make healthy choices, finding freedom and happiness.
