I had two dreams when I was young:
1) to be a pediatrician and 2) to be a mom.
My dreams did become reality when I walked across the stage on my father’s 50th birthday to be awarded my medical degree while being newly pregnant
with my first child.
Over the next few years, I was blessed to become a mom on three separate occasions.
Each child brought
incredible joy and difficult challenges.
When I was a pediatric resident, my infant daughter was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
I lived in a world filled with surgeries, chemotherapy, lines, tubes, and medications.
I allowed the stress and chaos of parenting a child with medical challenges consume me. Years later, she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and this brought on more challenges along with my other two children's mental health diagnoses.
I became lost in a world that revolved around navigating the health concerns of my children.
Parenting my children through the years has brought incredible challenges and difficult joy.
I have loved caring for children with chronic health issues during my time as a pediatrician and allergist/immunologist. I could easily educate my patients about what they needed to do to improve their health, but it was much more difficult to teach them how to do it.
I found life coaching.
I learned the skills needed to facilitate behavior change in me. The tools I learned from life coaching gave me an exciting, peaceful, and joyful life. I understand that the health of the child depends on the well-being of the parents. As a certified life coach, I am able to share the tools with parents of children with medical challenges. They can reclaim their lives and learn to thrive!
Are you ready to
I would love to work with you!!
I work with parents to take control of their lives. Parents have the opportunity to change overwhelming chaos into the organized time needed to achieve their own personal goals. They learn to manage their feelings so worry doesn't lead their lives, but rather confidence is at the forefront.
