Learning to live my truth was born out of living an inauthentic life…

Inauthentic because on the outside everything looked idyllic. I seemingly was living the American dream. The dream I was taught to want. But something just wasn’t right and I was sad and unhappy. Unhappy until I couldn’t fake it anymore and then I decided that living the life I craved, the life I deserved, had to be my new reality. I made my way off the porch by finding and living my authentic truth. My belief is that your being here is no accident. You’re here, because you can relate to my journey.

I created this space so that I can serve women (and men) like you, “get off the porch” in your own life. This sacred, safe space is where you learn to take the steps in the direction of your own truth, so you can begin living the authentic life you were meant to.  Begin your own journey today!
