It All Began When They Said "No."
Since I was nine, I've been dancing on stage in front of hundreds of people.
The thought of fear or disappointment or comparison or approval never even occurred to me.
Yet, as a designer in the professional corporate world, I quickly became
clouded with a performance mentality,
& the art of BEING
was quickly swallowed whole.
I knew the day my boss said that
I would find great success & freedom
building a hand-crafted
space. So, that's just what I've done;
and I've never once thought of turning back.
Over the past decade and a half, I've served one-on-one clients as a professional graphic designer, marketing director, promotional goods expert, as well as a coach & manager for business owners. One thing stays top of mind: business owners crave ease, strategy, and flow. But, oh so many hats to wear! That's where I come to the rescue: branding, strategy, design, and automation.
My superpower is inspiring women to become fully alive in their home, business, & dreams... living with abundant freedom, joy, and peace.
When I'm not strategizing or designing, you'll find me journaling or writing my next piece of marketing content from the heart. The content I write flows easily from life's experiences and lessons. The ebb and flow of life doesn't remind me of fragility, but instead of the victorious crown worn from the beautiful surrender of self. Life is meant for FREEDOM and preparing for eternity. Being you and living as a whole and on fire version of YOU is THE journey of undoing, unbecoming, & letting go of the good things so that the great may appear...and wow, they definitely do!
Professional design. genuine talks, unbreakable love, journaling, being flexible, & cutting out the 'meh' to make room for the very best.
Quick success, an easy life,
no goals, or abandoning self-care.
Hosting on my podcast: Living Aura, homeschooling my boys, designing new templates & strategies, researching the best marketing tips for you, or writing one of my books.
Morning journaling, bible & prayer, writing affirmations on the bathroom mirror, cuddles with my adorable children + Husband, sipping coffee, or choreographing to a worship song in the living room.
The Office... 100th time?
you and me forever

My Favorite Things
Journaling - every day I start by emptying my brain into the pages with gratefulness, reading my Bible, getting my heart and mind ready for the day.
my happy place!
The Country! It's my zone of serenity where all of my best ideas happen. Give me a dirt or gravel road way out where no city lights reach, some red dirt country music, in my truck, with the windows down, and this Texas woman will come home with three new songs and five new business ideas.
Accessorizing. I'm that girl with 147 pairs of shoes that don't fit in a closet. Hey, we all have our passions in life. My Husband loves watches, I love shoes.
