About Me

I am a certified Holistic Transformation Coach, Lupus Coach, 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 Discover My Power 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 order to begin living more in my purpose, I decided to use my struggles with lupus as a form of inspiration for individuals to begin their journey with wellness. I also decided I wanted to help and coach people to live more purposefully and authentically. 


In 2015, I became a Lupus Advocate for the Lupus Foundation of America as well as a Motivational Speaker promoting health and wellness, 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 also wanted to use my passion for helping others through coaching, and ultimately decided to do this full time! I left my corporate job to begin living more purposefully and changed my career to be a Coach. In February 2016 I founded Discover Your Power, aka DYP, to pursue my purpose of empowering and helping others to transform their lives. 


TheDiscover Your Power coaching philosophy is taking a holistic approach to help you live purposefully and authentically, so you can transform your life and create the life you want! Through DYP, I offer coaching, motivational speaking, lupus and wellness advocacy.
