So....who am I? Well, professionally I'm a former trial lawyer, in-house counsel & recovering perfectionist (anyone else a 'type A', over-achiever type personality?).
But before I share my heart & my story, here's what I need you to know:
I believe in YOU!

Though I'd been raised in the church as a young girl, it wasn't until I was nearly 40 years old when I got to know Jesus Christ as my Lord & Savior. I still remember when the lightbulb went off and I (finally) saw how the words of the Bible were relevant today and Christ's teachings began to impact my thoughts and actions every day.
Ever since I was a little girl, I felt like I was born to do a 'big thing' in the world (I bet you have that feeling too). I came from what I affectionately call 'poor stock' (aka modest means) -- dad was a factory worker and mom stayed at home. It wasn't until well into my 40s that I realized just how wise my parents were, despite their lack of formal education.
I was always driven to achieve and worked to excel in everything I did. My goal was always to be the best. I did well in school and became the first in my family to go to college, majoring in music education. (I always wanted to be a lawyer but at the time I believed that 'people like me' didn't become lawyers (a limiting belief I held - thankfully - for only a short while.) After college I married my high school sweetheart...but the fairytale didn't last long as I soon fell victim to domestic violence and abuse. Through that dark time, God was at work. In fact, I have an amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing God story about how He called me out of that life -- with a fatal head-on collision involving a drunk driver (if you wanna hear the details, feel free to reach out and let's chat).
Since graduating from college I'd worked in sales (a lack of music teacher positions forced me to expand my options). I loved sales (great money, freedom, etc.). But one day, as I left a sales call with a not-very-impressive-lawyer, I decided to switch gears career-wise and pursue law school, saying: "If that guy can pass the bar, so can I." (Side note & encouragement: did I have doubts? of COURSE! Was I scared? for sure! But I was more committed to my success than to my excuses. I went for it with all I had and, after putting in the hours and the work, I came out on top.)
I went to Villanova Law School, was invited to be a member of the Law Review, got published, graduated in the top 10 of the class and got a great job with a major firm in the Philadelphia area. I got married to a guy I met at law school (no...not another lawyer) and had 3 beautiful boys (now ages 17, 20 and 22). After I had my first child, the 'partnership track' at the firm no longer appealed to me (....it simply cost too much, requiring too much time away from home). After my third child, I decided to leave the practice of law to stay home and raise my boys. (I had no idea what I was in for. Handling 3 active boys under 6 all day is harder than my toughest day in the courtroom!)
While being home with my boys kept me busy, I soon felt restless . . . like I was made for more (do you know what I mean? have you ever felt that way?). I felt guilty about my feelings (I so appreciated the opportunity to be able to stay home with my boys. And I absolutely treasured every moment I got to spend with them. Nevertheless, I kept feeling pulled . . .) After much prayer, I realized there was no need to feel guilty. (Romans 8:1) I could be a good mom and pursue my passion (Remember: the woman in Proverbs 31 did it all, as her children call her blessed and her husband praises her.)
So I launched my very first business. Building a business from nothing was not easy and I definitely struggled in the beginning. (This was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy before the Internet and social media!) But I refused to give up. I persevered and, over the years, learned a LOT. Ultimately my determination and stay-with-itness paid off. (Did you know that drive & attitude are the 2 biggest differentiators between those that 'make it' and those that don't?)

Life in those years was far from perfect. I mean, they were tough! My marriage was falling apart. We divorced and, suddenly, I was a single mom with three young boys -- yikes, did I feel the pressure. I made the difficult decision to return to the law (I knew I would miss being my own boss but, at the time, the benefits and steady paycheck seemed too good to pass up). Fast forward several years. I got remarried and a unique career opportunity presented itself -- Director of Human Resources & General Counsel of an international company. It seemed too good to pass up so I went for it.
Long story short, I VERY much enjoyed that job. I led an amazing team and was blessed to work with true powerhouse exeutives from every department as well as outside business leaders. But no job is perfect and when my twin sister (& lifelong best friend) came to me and asked if I was interested in 'jumping ship' and going into business with her, I couldn't say no.
So while she was finishing up her prior business gig, I devoted myself to building that business from the ground up. I worked looooooooooooooooonnnggg days (& nights) to build: a social media following of over 40,000, including a Facebook group of nearly 25,000 women across the world and generate a multiple 6 figure revenue in less than 12 months! We also hosted and put on a national event where nearly 500 women attended. Major success. And it was clear that God's hand was all over the business, resulting in exponential growth. (In fact, I have soooo many 'God stories' to share on He showed up to make both the big and not-so-big things happen.)
The crazy success of that business catapulted my desire to begin this venture. A business that is 100% my vision. A business where I can be completely 'me' and do things my own way; no need to ask anyone's permission. A business that allows me to give my very best to fellow sisters in Christ, destined for great things.
I'm passionate about helping women embrace their awesomeness, identify their God-given genius & take strategic action to turn their passion into a profitable business -- quicker and easier than they ever thought possible!
