I started my career as a stage performer /singer at 19 years old and eventually worked my way up to entertainment executive with the Anheuser-Busch Entertainment Corporation. Although I achieved the success I wanted, I realized that true happiness still eluded me.
In an effort to uncover how to achieve true happiness, I acquired several coaching certifications and in 2006 I started my first company, InBliss Coaching and in 2007 I formed Actualize Consulting Group. Both companies are grounded in helping people and companies achieve true success by aligning what matters most with how you live your life-every day.
In 2016 I earned my certification in applied positive psychology by dedicating more than 300 hours to the study of positive psychology research and application. Shortly after, I launched my best-selling book, "Practical Bliss: The busy person's guide to happiness," based on the research and my own personal journey to build a life of joy and meaning (a.k.a. Bliss), despite the odds.
As a seasoned speaker, consultant, best-selling author, and coach, I work with clients from around the world and with organizations across the US to help them "Work, Play, and Live InBliss. "
