Building & Growing: Learning to Spread Your Wings

During my journey of self-discovery and coaching others, I realized that self-care was an important piece that many women tended to shy away from. For years I believed that self-care equaled selfishness and that just isn’t the case. You can’t pour from an empty cup.

It was God, who whispered in my mom’s ear as I was being rushed back to the operating room that I would live and not die.
