on-camera coach, tv career consultant, Weather Anchor, & Entrepreneur

As a coach, consultant, meteorologist & entrepreneur, finding time to do it all can be tricky.  But where there's a will there is a way! People always ask me how I became a Weather Anchor, how I opened a business, how I balance it all, etc.  It's not easy, but I never wanted to live in the "What If's," so I chose to try out the various things that interested me.  I've made plenty of mistakes along the way, but see them as part of the journey.  My life motto is "rejoice in the journey!"  Life will often throw me curve balls.  Instead of just dodging them, I now grab a giant bat & take a swing at those curve balls.  In the past, I missed some, hit some in the wrong direction, and have even been hit in the head. But now...I knock 'em out of the park!

There are so many people I admire & learn from, and many I encounter that fascinate me, so I thought I'd share what they've all taught me...and what I continue to learn!  I don't take myself too seriously, and try to find humor in pretty much every situation so I can enjoy each and every day! 

My goal is help others find their passion & purpose, so they can also live out their dreams!  For over a decade, I've been helping people find their career path & feel more comfortable in front of the camera.  In a world where YouTube channels & online education are careers, many are looking for ways to be relatable on camera.  And that's that I love helping people do!
