Let's take it back:
Growing up in Kentucky, I always had dreams where I was exploring big cities and discovering what else life had to offer. Stepping outside of my comfort zone and indulging in new experiences always excited me & I did just that when I moved to New York City to attend college. It was then where I quickly learned what it meant to be independent, what it took to set goals for myself and that I could choose to eat pizza for dinner every night if I wanted to.
If you were to ask my 16 year old self what my dream job out of college would have been, I would have said "hands down-working at a record label" . I managed to do just that. After graduation, I landed a Marketing role at an independent record label. While I loved certain aspects of my job (like my co-workers), It took me 2 1/2 years to figure out that the life that I thought that I wanted growing up wasn’t actually what I wanted anymore and that was a scary feeling. After that realization, I had to go with my gut and make the choice to move back home to Kentucky.
To most, the decision didn’t make sense. Leaving a job and a city filled with opportunity required a leap of faith and what I had to be confident in was that through my experiences, I knew exactly what I didn’t want: which was my guide to help me find what I did want. Through vision boards and journaling, I manifested the perfect job for me. However, it came to me in a package that I wasn’t expecting. I started working for a retail company, lululemon athletica, where I instantly felt at home. lululemon athletica opened me up to what is possible, which ultimately inspired me to do what I now know is my calling: to serve others through offering support and coaching.
A year later, I yet again went with my gut and moved to Los Angeles, California where I currently live with my lifemate, Christina, & our adorable Manchester Terrier, Pippa.
Random facts that I'm sure you're dying to know:
My first car: Forest Green Toyota Solara. She had a great sound system & was a pain in the ass for all of my friends to get in and out of. It was perfect.

There were 50 food stations (I'm talking freshly made pasta made right in front of you), unlimited champagne & an incredible outdoor atmosphere. Something that I probably shouldn't tell you is that 2 hours later we were at Shake Shack indulging, yet again. One thing that I love about my friends is that they have an appreciation for great food & company!
