Owner, M.A., MHC, Coach, PRS, CLYL
Welcome! I am the founder and owner of SAIL Coaching & Consulting, LLC. After serving my country for over 25 years in the military and working in the field of human resources, I had a calling to continue helping others. I completed my Masters of Arts in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Webster University and began working with young adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD–Level 1) or other learning differences. For over 5 years, I have dedicated my time to working with neurodivergent young adults as a mentor helping them to recognize and achieve their personal, professional and academic goals.
Initially upon graduation, my intent was to pursue licensure in the state of Florida. However, after serving as a consultant for therapists, I recognized that a life coach was more inline with what I wanted to do–collaborate with children, young adults and their parents to achieve their goals and passions utilizing a support system that addresses several areas of growth and development. Even more so, I recognized resources were scarce for individuals beyond their formative years and programs that could accommodate their needs were beyond many family’s price range. This led me to wanting others to SAIL, that is, find Serenity. Affirmation. Insight. Life. in a way that motivates them to discover their purpose.
I am married (my husband is also an Air Force veteran) with 3 children, two of which are diagnosed with learning differences and thriving as adults living independently. Our third child is graduating high school this year and entering college in the fall. I am originally from South Carolina and enjoy spending time with my family, traveling (pre-COVID), reading and creating positive energy wherever I go.
