"It took years before I finally recognised I was getting in my own way..."

As a young girl, I always knew I was destined for something great.

Ask me what I wanted to do and I’d say transform the world. I saw myself as a global businesswoman, actress and humanitarian – I didn’t know exactly what my life would look like but I knew I wanted to share myself with the world, to connect with people across difference, to engage on deeper levels of being, amplify the voices of those often silenced and to be an advocate for more diversity, equity & inclusion.


As I grew older I found that it slowly became harder and harder to live life out of a space that fully believed and grasped the limitlessness of who I was.

Allowing society’s narrow scope of who I could be, to shape my own perception, I began to adopt and internalize many of the messages around me.

What followed were years of downplaying my gifts and abilities, low self-esteem, and not saying "yes!" to the things that I really wanted to do.

For so much of my life, I’ve hidden my full self from the world and to be honest, I didn’t always realize I was doing it. Ways it showed up were subtle yet powerful moments of self-sabotage and silencing.

In high school, it looked like spending the summer in soccer camps but not showing up for season tryouts. In college, it looked like keeping my mouth shut when everything within me wanted to contribute to the conversation at hand. In my early working years, it looked like going along with things I didn’t agree with or not applying for a job my boss recommended me for. More recently it’s looked like opting for the more conservative outfit rather than the one I really want to wear.

And all this because somewhere deep down inside, I was afraid I wouldn’t be enough – not good enough to make the team, not intellectual enough to join the conversation, not agreeable enough to be liked, not experienced enough for the high-level job, not thin enough to pull off the outfit, and the list goes on.

It took years before I finally started to recognize how I was getting in my own way, how I was giving up my power, and how if I wanted things to be different I was going to have to be, think and act differently.

Although the journey is ever unfolding, I'm proud to say that I now live each day from a place of authenticity and alignment where I'm... 

— confident in my ability to continually make new & better serving choices that leverage my inner wisdom & power, and 

— no longer shying away due to fear from claiming my worth or boldly sharing my full self with the world.

And if I can do it, so can you!


If you're ready to get out of your own way and start sharing your most authentic self with the world, then let's do this thing, together!
