“If you knew me growing up, I would be the LAST person you would expect to be involved in a “courage movement”. Growing up, I was short, shy, and emotionally scarred from years of being bullied. At many times in my life, I had no friends at all.

These memories fuel me. I know what it feels like to be invisible. Scared. Stuck. That is why Scare Your Soul is so important.

Over the years, I have had the honor to study with some of the greatest minds in psychology, mindfulness, and self-efficacy. I’ve coached countless people through challenging life transitions. I’ve traveled the world, speaking to companies and on retreats. I am so lucky.

I’ve learned the powerful methodologies that motivate bravery and harness fear. And, most importantly, I live a Scare Your Soul life myself.

I invite you to join me.”
