The Journey of Becoming My Authentic Self

I am passionate about connecting with people from all walks of life and exploring unique perspectives and experiences to empower you to become the best version of yourself. I also value being in the space of like-minded individuals dedicated to excelling at new heights of success.






Hey, there!

I live by a simple motto: 
"Everything you desire is all around you!"

I didn't always have this confidence. It started when I changed my entire career: from a Weekend News Anchor to a Financial Correspondent and Podcast Host in Topeka, KS. How did that happen?

Find out for yourself!

Let's Start Here

In 2019, my journey to becoming a journalist landed me in Topeka, KS, to serve as a multi-media journalist and Weekend Evening Anchor at WIBW-TV for about 3 years, where I earned an award of excellence from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters for my work on a diversity, equity, and inclusion news story. I was chosen as a YWCA Women of Excellence honoree during this time.

This is where it gets interesting!


My Life Was Never The Same!

The chapter turned for the better, of course!

The dream is still the same, but the journey took a turn. My Faith & Passion for people and storytelling led me to where I am now. Being surrounded by impactful individuals led me to this page.

My current chapter reads as a TV Host/Producer for a financial marketing company, Advisor’s Excel – where we help financial advisors become great business owners.


While hosting TV and Radio shows/commercials are part of my role, I also play an integral behind-the-scenes inside our new AE Media Studios. 

There are many experiences that have shaped me into who I am today! 

If you want to dive in a little more behind the scenes . . .

Finding Joy and Purpose in Life's Journey

As someone who took a huge risk and made a significant career change, I understand how daunting it can be to take that first step towards a new path. This journey forced me to dig deep and find the confidence to make a major life change.

Let's just say, the lessons I've learned birthed something new in me that led me to this page, which is why I aim to empower and educate people to take action towards their dreams and goals that will lead them to Greatness.

My mission is to provide you with a safe, supportive space to explore your potential and overcome any obstacles you may be facing.

I understand that it can be challenging to take on a new mindset, which is why my approach is to make the experience as fun and light-hearted as possible. Now, Let's do this!
