Originally from the Southern US, in 2016 I decided to do the sell everything, lease my house to tenants, buy a one-way ticket abroad thing as I thought hitting 30 countries before my 30th birthday would give me that freedom I craved.
I visited 20 countries in 11 months and in a grand finale, moved abroad to Barcelona at the end of the trip.
And still I didn’t feel free.
I thought something was so wrong with me that I couldn’t be happy in the “dream life” I was living. I had a 14 year relationship with my high school sweetheart, 30 countries by my 30th, a high-paying location-independent gig, and was based in the dynamic city of Barcelona.
In a wild burst of courage that still surprises me at times, in July 2018 I let go of every safety net I had in my life.
I said goodbye to the boyfriend I’d had since childhood, I donated everything I’d accumulated in my 2 years abroad —save for one small carry-on suitcase — quit the job that was dulling my light, and embarked on a new journey once again.
This time I had one suitcase, no job, $10k of student debt, $1,000 in my accounts, and two halfway maxed out credit cards to my name. As I share this story today, from Bali, debt free, and living abundantly, I can tell you that I’ve learned a lot about what our generation sees as “freedom.”
Freedom is something I've known as it's classified in many forms. I’ve known freedom from a 9-5, freedom to travel to over 20 countries in a year and to over 30 in total.
And each of those “freedom” benchmarks have one thing in common; they have all left me seeking the next experience that would have me feeling free.
Yet once I built the courage to let go of everything that I refer to as “kinks” in my alignment, everything that wasn’t serving the me-as-my-best-self me, my whole life radically changed. I became a magnet for everything I wanted to attract.
Abundance. Love. Tribe. Connection. Purpose.
And I felt truly free for the first time in my life.

As an author, speaker, and abundance coach I help people build more energy for vitality, confidence, and magnetic attraction.
Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, I’ve got southern roots — but unless I’m talking about my family, my hometown, or southern seafood you can’t tell it by my accent.
Like many people I know, I craved having an impact on the world, and suffered in thinking once I found my ‘purpose’ I’d find my happiness too.
Truth is, I’d had it backwards the whole time. Once I found my happiness inside myself THEN I found my purpose. Helping babes like me find theirs too lights me up like nothing ever has before.
From sick and overweight to the refusal to release toxic relationships, I’ve lived many chapters in my 31 years. It’s my belief that if I can create an exhilarating life that lights me up, anyone can, and I LOVE building roadmaps with those ready to take action.
Having traveled to over 34 countries, I’ve always had wanderlust in my heart.
For now, I’ve found my inner jungle goddess a home here in Bali…
Yet give me some fresh air, organic leafy greens, a yoga mat, blender, post-its, whiteboard, bluetooth speaker, and some crystals and I’m happy just about anywhere.
I’ve got big goals to impact as many people as I can on this planet because I believe that when there’s enough passionate energy in this world, all the abuse, hate, racism, and destruction we face will be overpowered by the love.
I look forward to sharing more moments with you!
