If you opened your own business, what would it be?
In 2009, I was working for a local government, getting my MPA, and got a divorce. I felt huge amounts of change happening all around me. One night I decided to create the life I wanted to live. I designed my first vision board, not knowing anything about the power of my mind, my intuition, and the law of attraction. I knew I wanted to create my life instead of letting life happen to me.
On the vision board, I decided I wanted to have a consulting/coaching business. I didn’t know how to make this happen and I didn’t know anyone who had a business like the one I wanted to create.
Fast forward to when the vision board came to life, and Create the Spark, LLC was born in 2012! It’s been 7 years of living, teaching, inspiring, and encouraging myself and others to listen to their Divine Guidance so life can be fun again!
What advice would you give your younger self?
God, Spirit, Creator, The Universe loves you, uplifts you, appreciates you, and admires you. You are powerful beyond measure. You are the brightest, most amazing woman. Nothing anyone ever says or does has anything to do with you. They are experiencing their life through their own beliefs about themselves. You, my friend, need to only focus on your intentions, and how you feel about yourself and how you feel about them. Don’t give a second thought to what others think about you.
What makes you feel fulfilled?
I could say my business. I could say my clients. I could even say my two daughters and my husband because these three people make my heart skip a beat and bring tears of joy (and sometimes frustration 😊) to me. These three people are my world. Yet, they don’t fulfill me.
What makes me feel fulfilled is being ever present, and in connection to, and in communication with Spirit. I denied my gifts for far too long. When really, living and teaching this Divine Guidance that flows through us and makes our life easy, effortless, and enjoyable is really what fulfills me.
When asked to describe yourself, what’s the first word that pops into your mind?
Yes and No!
My husband says I am like fresh produce. I make decisions that are ripe, delicious, juicy, and ready to be eaten or I say a ‘hell no’ that taste disgusting, I am not eating that! I am either a ‘hell yes’ or a ‘hell no’ kind of girl!

What makes your heart race?
Organization or cause near to your heart-
Any organization that uplifts and inspires others, provide resources and gives others, especially children, a safe place to be themselves!
What keeps you up at night?
My children. I am hopeful I will get to sleep through the night SOON!
What is a belief you once held but no longer do?
I once believed I wasn’t accepted and no one loved me. This is no longer true; it never was.
What are you interested in connecting with other women about?
I want to know about the real you. I want to truly hear you. I love meaningful, deep conversations about what stops you, what moves you, what pisses you off, and what makes you cry. I want to know what brings you joy. AND… I will do all of this over a platter of cheese and a glass… maybe two… of wine!
