I am a certified Holistic Transformation Coach, The Lupus Coach™, Energy Healer, Motivational Speaker, leader, and professional with over 14 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 my 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 my journey with health in 2006 when I 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 empower and educate myself about my disease so I could lead a happy and healthy life. I also began to realize I was not working in my purpose and knew something needed to change, but little did I know... this would be the beginning of a brand new and authentic life leading me on a spiritual journey, known as my spiritual awakening, to find my life's purpose. My spiritual awakening helped me realize my life's purpose is to help coach, inspire, and teach others.
In 2015, I joined the 1st group of Lupus Advocates for the Lupus Foundation of America promoting health and wellness as a Motivational Speaker, encouraging others to transform their lifestyles by incorporating holistic health and wellness principles, and inspiring people to heal who have struggles related to health and illness.
I was finally ready to live and work in my purpose helping and coaching others full time and ultimately decided to quit my corporate job and change my career to be a Coach! I founded Discover Your Power™, aka
DYP, in February 2016. The Discover Your Power™ coaching philosophy is taking a holistic approach to help people live purposefully and authentically, so they can transform their lives and create the life they want! Through DYP, I offer coaching, motivational speaking, lupus and wellness advocacy.
