Let me introduce myself…
I'm a recovered people-pleaser and unapologetic, unwavering optimist.
If you want a coach that supports and encourages you while holding you accountable, listens without judgement while keeping you honest with yourself – all with a positive outlook on life no matter what the situation – I’m your girl.
Now don’t get me wrong, I fully understand life isn’t always a bed of roses. My life is a testament to that! My outlook and my attitude which influence my coaching are my choices. I choose to see the best in life, situations, and people.
The bottom line is, I’ve been there and come out on the other side. It’s not just personal experience, I’ve also dedicated myself to mastering the tools, processes, and techniques that are research-based, proven to help you.
what can I help you with?

My passion for communication and empowering others to make positive changes in every aspect of their life has led me to earn the following:
I am a cornucopia of titles. Entrepreneur, Yoga Instructor, GiGi, Coach, Partner, Jesus Follower, Aspiring Hiker, Dog Mom – just like you I am not one thing or defined by one title.
I launched Career Polish in 2009 to help people connect with what they enjoy doing and secure the right place to do that. Thousands of successes later, I still do.
It didn’t take long to realize the key to success is two-fold: how you talk to yourself and how you talk about yourself. And that all starts with your mindset. And so began my quest for more knowledge, training, and passion for coaching for empowerment to make real, lasting, positive life changes.
Early in my career, I was a leader in the financial industry (Merrill Lynch, Prudential, Key Bank/McDonald Investments) having held Series 7, 9, 10, 63, 65, 26, Indiana Life & Health and Property and Casualty licenses.
The Yoga Instructor is newest. After feeling out my 50s, I decided I needed a change. I tried yoga, hated the first month or so, then fell in love the day I felt I finally hit a pose. That led to wanting to learn more, then wanting to provide a style for people like me, not a spring chicken, yet powerful and wanting to stay that way!
