I saw her in the gym during kindergarten P.E.
A brown-haired girl with blue eyes. She looked nice. I went up to her and asked, "Will you be my friend?" She said, "Yes," and a best friendship was born.
All my life, friendship and relationship-building have been tremendously important to me.
"You've always had such good friends," I remember my mom saying to me.
In conversation, others remarked, "That's a good question," time and time again.
But when I came to a crossroads in my career, being a good friend and great question-asker didn't seem to point me in any direction at all.
If there was a way to be a professional friend, I would do it. But no such job seemed to exist.
Then I made a discovery. When a friend told me she was being certified as a life coach, a giant lightbulb CLICKED!
You mean I could have deep and authentic conversations - as my job?
I could create safe spaces for others to share their hearts - as my job?
I could learn to ask questions that would help others make significant changes in their lives - as my JOB?
Get out of town!
I was trained, certified, and the rest is history.
A client remarked that what I do now is like "sacred friendship". I couldn't have said it better.
Here are five things I'm especially proud of this year.

Would you like to be my friend? Or do you know someone who would?
I'd love if you introduced us!

Every blog post you share, every newsletter you forward, every interested person you introduce me to helps more people know they CAN make time for themselves, do things they love, and handle hard situations with confidence so they can become the kind of parent (and person) they’ve always wanted to be.
Thank you so much for considering!
