Hi! I know what it’s like to be sick and tired of being sick and tired, and to feel stuck and trapped in a life you never envisioned for yourself. Even further, I know how it feels to be imprisoned inside of your own limiting beliefs, negative and stinking thinking, and even your own body! In 2010, after hitting rock bottom, I realized it was time to make a change for the better - time to make a change toward a better and greater version of myself. So, I spent years doing the inner work to heal, grow, evolve and transform my life from the inside-out. As a result of the tools, methods, and evidenced-based practices I implemented, I recreated myself, and my life! Using those same methodologies, I am here to help you do the same!

After spending over 11 years working in the criminal justice field by helping juvenile and adult offenders make better choices to change their lives, I began my career in the personal development field as a Speaker, Transformation Consultant, Mentor, and I am also the author of Unclothed: Memoir of a Naked Soul. I am dedicated to helping you and many others transform your lives from the inside-out, so that you can live confident and fulfilling lives as your true and authentic selves!


I truly have a heart for the youth and believe if we can teach and show the younger generation better, we may possibly have a better future. Through my passion and personal experiences, I founded the self-esteem empowerment movement, Be Pretty Inside, Inc.
