Behind the Podcast

Thank you so much for checking out the Authentic & Brave Podcast!

This has been a dream of mine for a long time! 

I'm a high achieving, lover of all gnomes, pizza making, gummy bear snacking mama of three great kids, a wife to my high school sweetheart and dog mom to Paisley & Doolin. 

I've always had an interest in knowing what makes people tick. I trained as a social worker and therapist, though have held many other jobs including ropes course director, file clerk, and auctioneer's assistant. I love to learn and will buy pretty much any book you recommend! I am YA author, entrepreneur, speaker, therapist, supervisor and a college professor. I have a PhD in Education and several certificates in specific therapy modalities.

My mission to help women feel safe and courageous to be who they are. I want to support others on this crazy journey of life with laughter, joy and connection. I hope you will join me!
