About me: I am a communication specialist and love facilitating strong interpersonal skills. I studied Communication Science and Disorders in college and hold a Master's in Speech-Language Pathology. I specialize in supporting students and adults of all ages and particularly enjoy helping individuals in transitional life phases such as those getting ready to go to college and managing a course load and social life independently as well as those who are graduating and aiming to find their place in the world of adulthood. Oftentimes, these individuals have a diagnosis of ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, and more. We work on improving executive functioning challenges and communication differences to maximize your overall well-being.

Life Coaching | Academic Coaching | Executive Functioning Coaching | Nature-focused Coaching

About me: I am a coach and self-learner who embraces the healing power of nature. I've successfully navigated some pretty demanding paths, like earning my PhD in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan as well as guiding others along their life journeys, like coaching fellow service members during my time in the Air Force. I'm here to help you find your way too. When we embrace our true selves, build healthy habits, and strengthen relationships with others, all things are possible.
