As a licensed teacher, substitute teacher, athletic coach, life mentor, martial arts instructor, self-defense trainer, and fitness instructor I have a wide range of experiences to draw from.  I specialize in helping adult, working moms with kids and complicated lives to become more focused, more confident, and happier.
