As a young adult I was often told I was a great listener who was intuitive and very easy to talk to you. As time passed, I embraced this truth about myself. Often, I'd find myself speaking and talking to people saying, "let’s dig deeper to get to the root." As I grew from a young adult to a fully responsible adult, I realized that I was called to serve people. I was given a divine gift. I worked with youth, young adults college graduates, and adults to help navigate new chapters in their lives. I lived life enjoying every moment of it. In May 2012, I married the love of my Justin Heard. We embarked on our life journey together as husband and wife. In July 2013, we found out that we were expecting our first child. At week 20 of my pregnancy I went in for a routine scan to discover the sex of our child, only to find out the pregnancy was not viable.
We were devastated and were left with a lot of painful decisions to make in that moment.
After losing our son, I went through months of soul searching and great sadness. During this time I realized my pain had a purpose. This was pushing me towards my life's purpose. I buckled down and began to heal from the inside out. It took a long time but afterwards I was a new, more compassionate and understanding person.
Fast forward to August 2016 when I was offered a career opportunity that allowed me to spread my wings and grow like never before. After completing everything I was sent there to do it was evident that it was time to move forward in my career and my dreams. All of these major life changes were like birthing pains for me. I left and began working on my coaching certification with the CAPP Institute because I felt the gentle nudge to move forward in this.
All of my life experiences coupled with my professional experiences have come together to create an opportunity for me to serve many people young and old to help them find their path and navigate the waters of change.
