Hi there! I’m just a gal in my mid 30’s who decided several years ago to shift a great deal about the way I was living, and never looked back. In 2013 I was working full-time as a teacher, part-time doing various other work, and attending graduate school. I was also going through a divorce, leaving my job of seven years, selling my home and car, and…. without knowing it at the time… beginning what I can only describe as an awakening of sorts.
So, over the years I’ve talked to many folks about the path I have taken, the “weird” choices I’ve made (more on that later), and the journey to living my truth. I honestly spent way too long figuring out how to share with more people, and what my focus would even be if I were to write consistently.
At the end of the day, I am simply a curious, personal development junkie (and psych major) who loves to learn, explore, and try new things – and who strives to live a better, balanced, intentional life every day (Note: I fail a lot.)
I tend to share thoughts on intentional living and personal growth, which for me could involve travel, health and wellness, minimalism, relationships, etc….
Bottom line: Here I am to share my failures, successes, and continued growth – in case this helps you.
Education Experience (for my teacher friends visiting this site):
Some of my posts might be geared toward teachers or education, so I thought I might owe my teacher friends a little about my background as an educator. 🙂
I’m the Chief Learning Officer at an Atlanta-based edtech startup company and have spent the past 15 years in the field of education. I’ve served in various capacities in K-12 public education and beyond. I worked at the high school level for seven years, where I served as a special education teacher, a Spanish teacher, and a world language department chair. I was then promoted to the central office of a large Georgia school district, where I supported teachers and leaders through professional development around topics such as online learning, classroom pedagogy, and STEM and innovation. I also taught instructional technology to M.Ed. Students at a Georgia University from 2012-2020.
I have spent the last decade working with thousands of teachers and leaders in the K-12 space, both in my home state of Georgia and, since 2016, across the United States. I earned my doctorate in Teacher Leadership in 2016 and have a strong passion for personal and professional development, educator coaching, and empowering teachers to thrive.

Thanks for visiting!
