My Story 

As an Enneagram 2, "The Helper", I have spent most of my life focused on others in an effort to do whatever I could to be of service and help to them. I enjoyed a very long career in school psychology (26 years in fact) only to find that the job I once enjoyed so passionately was leaving me feeling frustrated and discontent. As I searched for the happiness and contentment that seemed lost to me, I experienced a season of tremendous spiritual growth and discovered things about God and myself that I had never realized before. As painful as that season felt at the time, I now know that God took me to a valley to help mold me in preparation for a new chapter of my life. And I want to teach you what I've learned! Thus "On Purpose Coaching" was born.

Through On Purpose Coaching I help others to improve relationships and to discover intentional abundant living. I do that through several services including group and/or individual coaching, live event speaking or maybe my favorite, Enneagram workshops. Please take a look around this site to see what might interest you the most!
