Hello, Hello I am 

I help women navigate from a level of stillness (ashes), to a level of Gladness! To embrace the next phase of their lives with love, grace, peace, and excitement!

At some point in our lives we all go through a season where we wonder if this is it? It usually happens when we have gone through some major changes like our kids go off to college, a divorce, or even the loss of loved ones. We find that we have gone as far as we want to go on our jobs and we desire change.  We want something else but don’t know what, or who or even how. We don’t feel qualified to do anything else but we know deep in our souls, this is not it.  We can’t move forward and yet we can’t stay here. It’s at this time we begin to ponder and ask ourselves; “Should I be doing something else? And If I should, then what should that be?  I’m not happy and I don’t know what to do about it.”

What I do

I am here to help women discover the reason they were created and work toward the fulfillment of that discovery. Think of me as your Tour Guide, providing you with the tools to help you navigate through this process. But first, let me tell you a little bit about me. As I said, I am your Ashes To Gladness Coach. I motivate and inspire women to walk in their purpose and transform their lives and the lives of those around them. To be a beacon of light for this world! It is my deepest desire to see you succeed, for you to be excited about life and to spread that happiness and excitement around this globe.

My purpose stems from Isaiah 61:1-3, where the Lords asks that we “preach the good news to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom, to comfort all who mourn, to bestow upon them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning.”

Completing the Hope Rising Consulting Metamorphosis program with my Ashes to Gladness Coach, Daria Willis, was the best thing I could have ever done!!! This program allowed me to dig deep and heal some old scars which allowed me to be free and move forward in my personal life. The program also helped me to gain ideas to build my business.
