    I’ve raced four times this season. Each race has been like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich—good and nourishing, but not spectacular and game-changing. In training, I am strong and getting stronger with each session, but so far I haven’t put it all together on race day. I recently shared these thoughts with my coach […]

    When Your Self-Worth Wobbles

      You are worthy. Those are three powerful words, eh? Let them sink in. Let the power of those words flow through your body. Let them fill you up, shining a light on your entire body, from the tips of your toes, up through your legs, through your core, across your shoulders to your finger […]

    Are you forcing or flowing?

    I lay on my mat in the post-yoga, blissed-out state of savasana. The instructor was saying something in a sing-song voice, and her words washed over me like summer rain. I felt grounded and peaceful. But her next words smacked me like a snowball: “Avoid aggressive people,” she said. Wait. What? The bliss dissipated, and […]

    How to get what you’ve been waiting for

    “Wait, Makai.” He looked at me with his big brown eyes, knowing I couldn’t resist them. And still I said, “keep waiting.” I sat outside a campground office with my 10-year-old dog Makai while my husband went in to pick up our mail. Makai sat, then lay down, then jumped up and looked at me. […]

    Lessons From the Adventure River

    The cool water bubbled up over my shoulders as the sun warmed my face. My husband and I were lying in inner tubes, riding the Adventure River at our campground in South Carolina. This is our life right now. We sold our house in Maine in September and have been living in a small camper […]

    There’s a Time and a Place to Suck It Up

    I stood on the pool deck, looking up at the dark wooden ceiling. And then I looked at the brick walls on either side. The place had a bit of a dungeon feel and didn’t fit my definition of an inspiring pool. Yet, we were considering moving to this city, and this pool would be […]

    2 New Ways to Uplevel Your Life With Me

    I love coaching. I love everything about it—the relationship, the process, but most of all, I love watching clients shed the stories that have protected them for so long as they step into their own power. But coaching isn’t for everyone. Committing to a coaching relationship is a big investment in yourself. And some people […]

    What I Learned From Living in a Camper for Three Months

    I’ve heard the phrase, “Busy is good” my entire life. And finally, after years of not completely buying it, I am officially calling BULLSHIT! Being busy is a cultural phenomenon. We rush from one event to the next, always going, going, going. We fill our calendars, saying yes to everything that comes our way. We […]

    If you’re an athlete or an entrepreneur or a parent or a teacher or a student–or a human,really–you’re probably striving to be your best self. And if you’re any of those things, you’ve probably experienced self doubt. Maybe you’ve asked yourself, “Why the hell am I doing this?” Maybe you’ve found yourself feeling like a […]



    Kelsey and I sat down for a long talk and some inner digging to figure out what I truly wanted, we already knew my current position is not my life’s work or true self.  I am happy to say that I am enrolled in a program that is going to get me on the path that is really meant for me.  Kelsey really helped me dig and not be afraid to go after what I want; in all matters of life.
