I had a very difficult and unstable life growing up. In the last few years, God has given me the desire to use my past to help others. I have written two books, Life After (my life story) and The Shame Identity: Discover the truth about grace. I have had the honor of being on several radio interviews including KLOVE radio as well as sharing my story with different church groups, drug and alcohol recovery groups, and youth groups. About a year ago, I started volunteering with our local Youth Detention Center to speak with and mentor some of the guys incarcerated there. I felt incapable and like I wasn’t able to help people the way I desired to. That’s when I began my search and came across Universal Coach Institute. After much research, I decided to take the plunge and begin Life Coaching classes. In May of 2018, I completed my course and earned my Life Coaching Certification. I am currently going through Transformational Coach Training through UCI in order to further my training. I am really excited to have gained the training and the confidence to help people and to help them well!
