You were born with a divine purpose: to lead a life of love.

I was born, raised, and educated in North Carolina and I am a published author, writer, influencer and entrepreneur.  I am extremely passionate about leading and living a life of creativity, purpose and wellness and helping others do the same. 

I find joy in practicing yoga, being outside, cooking healthy meals, serving in my community, working on creative projects, being a lululemon ambassador, and spending time with family + “framily”. 

Ultimately, my goal is to live a life where my doing is a reflection of my being.  

As a trained executive leadership professional with twenty years of experience leading people and managing systems, I now guide individuals, organizations and businesses to uncover purpose and develop authentic and holistic leadership paradigms that encourage purposeful work.

Through my company, Illumined Leadership Solutions, I offer a systemic approach to solving challenges and problems. Through leadership coaching, seminars and organizational development consulting, I focus on strategic leadership development & solutions.
