About Me

I am a certified Transformation Coach, Lupus Coach, leader, and professional with over 13 years of coaching, speaking, leadership, and human resources experience. I also have experience in recruitment, career 

management, leadership development, succession planning, training, facilitation, and change management. I obtained her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida in Communications specializing in Radio and Television, as well as my Master’s degree in Human Resources from Rollins College. In order to further my coaching skills to better serve my clients, I became an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) from the International Coach Federation. I also hold my certifications as a Human Resources professional (PHR and SHRM-CP), Lupus Advocate, and a certified John C. Maxwell Speaker, Coach, and Teacher.

I began her journey with health in 2006 when she was diagnosed with lupus. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body including skin, joints, and organs.  Being diagnosed with lupus was not easy for me to accept, and it completely changed life. Eventually, instead of letting lupus control me and my destiny, I decided to Discover My Power and educate myself about my disease so I could lead a happy and healthy life. Little did I know this would be the beginning of a brand new and authentic life leading me on a journey to find my life's purpose... to help coach, motivate, inspire, and teach others.

I decided to use my struggles with lupus as a form of motivation and inspiration for individuals to begin their journey with wellness. In 2015, Lizeth became a Lupus Advocate for the Lupus Foundation of America. Being a Lupus Advocate provided me with a platform to encourage people to transform their lifestyle by incorporating health and wellness principles, as well as inspire people to cope with struggles related to health and illness.

I decided I wanted to do more so I pursued my passion of motivating and helping others even further by becoming a Motivational Speaker for the Florida Hospital Speakers Bureau. This was another platform and opportunity to do all that I could to educate and encourage people to live happy and healthy lifestyles by adopting health and wellness principles.  

I wanted to use my passion to help others through coaching, and this helped me realized my purpose in life was to do this full time! I found that helping others through coaching and speaking were ultimately my life’s purpose. In February 2016 I founded Discover Your Power to pursue my passion of empowering and helping others to transform their lives. Shortly after in August 2016 I quit my corporate job to pursue coaching and helping others full time.   

I believe in order for people to give their full effort to reach and accomplish their goals, they must believe in the possibility of achieving it, and most importantly they must believe in themselves. It starts with their mindset and I am passionate about helping empower people to make progress towards transforming and changing their lives.


Inspired by my calling in life, I want to help you Discover Your Power and achieve your goals to transform and create the life you want! Through coaching, motivational speaking, lupus and wellness advocacy, I will help empower yourself to overcome obstacles, so you can take steps to bring what you want to fruition in your life.
