Ignite Your Passion

Empowering Women to Find Their

Go Higher in Life + Business


When I began my career as an engineer, years ago I had great expectations that it would be my life's work. Who knew, that it was just the beginning, it was the foundation, it was the catalyst that would propel me to the place where I am today…owning a successful counseling and coaching business, a six-figure company that helps others, especially women to find their place, to stretch themselves, to know that whatever you want you can have.

I learn this all too well, when my career as an engineer became unstable and unpredictable. Imagined planning a thank you celebration for your contract workers last day on the job…to learn at the end of the day that it was your celebration also, that you have been let go…Fired! Talk about a blow to my ego. OUCH! But guess what, that wasn't the last chapter, it was the catalyst, the PUSH that inspired me to take action, to chart my own course.


I learn a great lesson during that chapter of my life...and guess what, I wouldn't change a thing!  Life’s challenges and setback are so necessary. It taught me that I didn't have to settle or get fixated on being an engineer.  After my third lay-off, I had, had enough, so I thought.  But I found another engineering position...I was on that job for 7 months. One morning I was getting ready for work...I turn to walk out of my bathroom, I felt a "pain" in my hip that brought me to my knees and sent me to the emergency room...What had happened? STRESS. I couldn't walk for three days. My primary doctor prescription, "Let Go...Quit Your Job!" I was in no position to quit work. I had a mortgage, car payment and other bills to pay. How could I quit? I asked for an additional week off and the doctor gave me the necessary paperwork to do just that. I went back to my stressful job! I shared this story in my book When Life Happens, read it. It is comical now but at the time I was frustrated, confused and didn't know what I was going to do. I went back to work on Monday...Tuesday...Wednesday I went to lunch...ate lunch and went home. That was it!  Have you ever had a "Last Lunch" moment?  I had to make the connection that I was out of alignment with my purpose, my calling in life.  After a short sabbatical, I got busy and I found my place and life has been amazing!
