The Queen of Calm
My obsession with organization and high performance started when as a child I found it difficult to focus. I was diagnosed with ADD (Attention-Deficit-Disorder). To find my calm, I came up with systems and tools to keep me on track throughout school and my career (post-its and palm pilots forever!).
I thought I had it all together, and then, I fell head over heels in love and married my husband Kyle, inheriting an “insta-family” of 3 kids who live(d) with us full-time. We moved to a new city where I had no support system, and with him traveling extensively for work, I had to figure my parenting shit out real fast or I wouldn’t survive.
Adding a 4th child to the family completed us, and also brought a whole new set of challenges. As though we didn’t have enough on our plates, we decided to pursue our dream of starting a consulting business, Be Courageous, where I’m be the Chief Operating Officer as well!
One afternoon, during one of the zillion breastmilk pumping sessions during our son’s first year, right before the other 3 kids were about to come crashing in the house from school, with Kyle hustling on calls to get our first clients, I realized:
There’s no backup. It’s up to me. Holy f’g shit.
Hot tears and shaking sobs took over my body. I was in way over my head. I needed to scream at the top of my lungs, but I couldn’t because, the baby!
Then something shifted. I realized: Wait, it doesn’t have to be this way. I have run businesses, have psychology and organizational management degrees, and a rich career in human resources and culture management. I have all the tools I need to make this life I’ve chosen run more smoothly.
People constantly ask me, “How do you manage everything and stay sane?”
I’m here because I can share with you the tools and systems I set up in my and others lives that keep us calm within the chaos that comes with having a family (and everything else). It’s not about “having it all” – it’s about finding joy in the life you’ve created.
I can show you how to build a system for your life so that you can build pleasure back into your world. And you don’t need to suffer or lose sleep to get what you want. F that.
As a Certified High Performance Coach I will help you own your calm, and to find the energy you lost somewhere along the way to be and do what you love again!
