We all already have the power within us.
We just don’t always realize it or believe it. I certainly didn’t believe it. But now I do. Now I know with 100% certainty that the power is there waiting for you, me, all of us to use if we choose to.
Why hello! I’m Amy.
At age 38, on the day before my wedding, I unexpectedly broke down in tears in my mom’s arms. My tears flowed with guilt, pain, and shame for wanting something more despite my life outwardly appearing “perfect”. I had the perfect job, at the perfect company, with the perfect fiance. At least that’s what everyone told me. “You’re so lucky everything is just perfect for you!”
But things were not perfect.
The truth is, I felt unfulfilled. I felt like I was constantly behind. Chasing the next thing that I was “supposed to go for”, but unsure of why. I wanted to do something more. I had dreams. I had passions. But I was afraid to change. I judged my own struggles. Even after I received an email (yes they sent an email) to notify me that the embryos my husband and I had frozen were involved in a mishap at the storage unit, I continued to believe “I have no right to feel like something is missing or long for more. So many people have it worse.” I felt crushed. And the pressures for me to “just settle down and be a mom” felt heavier.
I wanted something different.
I tried everything from reading endless personal development books to praying for inspiration. I even traveled all the way to Peru for an Ayahuasca Ceremony. “Somebody please just tell me what to do with my life,” I thought. Nothing helped. I told myself I was “trying to figure it out.” It was just an excuse. The whole time, I was sitting in the passenger side pretending that I was driving, when really, I wasn’t. I was letting others write my story for me.
How might things be different if you believed that things happen FOR you? Not TO you?
I believe that now. Serendipitously, during the lowest of my lows, coaching just meandered into my life. I wasn’t even looking. It all somehow just aligned. And with my coach, I unraveled the layers. My fears and insecurities stood in front of me challenging my sense of self and mediocracy.Through my vulnerability I found strength to speak up for what I wanted. Through my loss I found new beginnings. I discovered I had the power within me all along. And I found the courage to pick up my pen and author the narrative I wanted to write for my life.
Now, I am committed to helping you to author your story.
It took 38 years for me to make peace with my fears and insecurities. To find the courage to pick up the pen and own my story. I don’t want you to take that long. You’ve already lost enough precious moments waiting. It’s time to grab that fountain pen and start authoring YOUR story. NOW. Because if you don’t tell your story somebody else will.
Authoring your story. Together.
I’m a Life Transformation Coach, certified through the International Coach Federation (ICF) and Hudson Institute of Coaching. I am fascinated about the world, intrigued by human connections, and believe that, at the core, all humans are filled with genuine kindness, love and a story to tell.
After 16+ years of corporate life at organizations like Google, Booz Allen, and Clorox, I found the narrative I wanted to write for myself and followed that path. I left the corporate world and am currently coaching remarkable women just like you whilst volunteering and traveling around the world with my husband.
Through my Project Faces and Places, I capture stories of people we meet and places we visit to show how much kindness, love, and beauty there is no matter where you go. My hope to inspire friends and strangers alike to travel, explore, and connect with others in a deeper, more meaningful way.
Working with me will be a similar experience. We will travel and explore your life journey to show you how much kindness, love, and beauty you have. I’ll help you connect to your sense of self in a deeper, more meaningful way so that you can author the next chapter of your life.
