I started my career teaching elementary school. I had the hottest Friday nights, wandering the bookshelves of Barnes + Noble, seeking answers to bad dates, searching for ways to reach my students through their own passions, and hoping my passion + purpose would hit me on the head.
Turns out passion + purpose don’t stroll around Barnes and Noble aimlessly. I left the classroom, but kept working in schools, switching roles as I searched for the passionate fire I had known in college.
Six years ago, I made a change where Mondays were about me, my computer, and my cube. I breathed a sigh of relief into the quiet. At the end of the week, I knew I’d made a terrible mistake.
But I absolutely didn’t know what to do next.
I felt lost, unsure of how I’d sunk so low. Ashamed, because I felt like I had taken all the paths and still didn’t love what I was doing.
Enter Bossed Up Bootcamp. Emilie Aries had us envision our life in the next 10 years. All the things I loved about teaching lit up in my mind, and I had a vision of coaching other women, reminding them of their greatness + their gifts + manifest their own visions.
I enrolled in coach training with the International Coach Academy.
