Helping You Mitigate Regret

I am known as The YES Boss.

Why? Because I’ve “been there” and “done that”.

I was headed on my own path of “woulda, coulda, shoulda” – a path that was filled with fear, doubt and regret. But thankfully I had an “a-ha” moment – one where I realized my life’s ultimate journey was in my hands and my hands alone – and that I could make the changes to be happy with myself if I could always be hopeful for the sun to shine despite the clouds!

So I did the work..peeling back my layers of fear and failure, discovering what my real YES should be (and why that was important), designing the life I wanted and claiming it.

I have helped others do the same through my signature YES Method™ programs. I walk my talk.

I offer customized coaching solutions based around your individual needs. My YES Method™ breaks the steps down into bite-sized digestible nuggets. I hold you accountable for the work that only you can do and help you get out of your own way when necessary.

I am accessible, dedicated and will help you own your YES. I’ll dish out some tough love with real compassion as its sidekick.
