About Me

My Background

I’m a Life Coach, Biblical Counselor, Speaker and Author of “Goal Setting by The Book: A Biblical Approach to Goal-Setting”.

I have my BA in Management and Leadership and my MA in Rehabilitation Counseling. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and certified Find Your Beautiful Life Plan Coach.

I speak about topics such as goal setting, the importance of knowing your values, and getting clear on who you truly are in Christ.

I coach, counsel with and speak to women who struggle with their identity and finding a clear path and direction for their life.

I’ve created a system for goal setting based on Biblical principles and God’s will for your life.

I was born in Puerto Rico but raised in Miami, FL. I am the youngest of 3 children and the only girl. As a result I learned to be tough just like my big brothers. Growing up in Miami meant trying to keep up with appearances which was both demoralizing and draining. Many times growing up, I felt out of place and struggled greatly with low self-esteem, depression and anxiety. 

At age 7 I developed an ulcer which doctors said was brought on by anxiety. As a result, I met a child psychologist who helped me learn coping skills that helped me get through that time. Because of that experience, I realized my desire to help others who struggled with the same things I struggled with. 

At age 11, I accepted Jesus as my Savior while at a youth retreat which started my love for studying the Bible and learning more about who God is and who I am in Him. Although I would like to say that my life has been on the straight and narrow path ever since, in reality it's been more like a roller coaster ride with many ups and downs. 

Throughout the years I have had to overcome a lot due to physical and mental health issues. However, I believe that God has used those trials to develop my character and grow me into the woman I am today.

When I'm not helping others, I can be found hanging out with my husband of 3 years and my two little girls whom I affectionately refer to as my “Curly Girls”. We enjoy watching movies and eating ice cream together.

I also have a strapping young man as a son who is 20 years old and lives in Florida.

I love reading personal development books and Christian fiction. My favorite author is Francine Rivers.
Exercise is real important to me and I do it not to look better but to feel better. Therefore, I exercise most days of the week and mix up my workouts between yoga, Pilates, weight lifting, walking and running.
Oh, and did I mention that I nap almost daily? I love to nap- which I consider a hobby in and of itself.

 

5 Additional Snippets of My Life Are...

1) I currently call Illinois my home.  

In my early twenties I decided to start my life over and packed up my son and all my belongings and moved to the cold tundra of Northern, Illinois where no one knew me and I knew no one (I did at least have a job and apartment lined up before making the leap).  

2) I find slogging (slow jogging) therapeutic. 

After 3 knee surgeries (2 ACL reconstructions- one on each knee and a meniscectomy on my left knee), I cannot run like I used to but I still take pleasure in shuffling my feet once or twice a week.

3) My favorite place on earth is the ocean.

Now that I live up north, I truly miss the beach and its vast beauty.

4) And...I truly enjoy watching romantic comedies. 

When I finally sit down to relax, I do not want to watch anything that stresses me out so I prefer to view films that make me laugh. 

5) My life Bible verse is: 

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. -Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Now that you know a little about me, I would love to get to know you better.
