My Story

In 2014, I moved to "Quito, Ecuador" with my family to build a non-religious ministry to support, educate and empower the female community.  I led a women's ministry there for 2 years before she had to move to the coast for health reasons.  My family and I now manage a bed and breakfast near Salinas, which we are in the process of converting into a small conference-retreat center to support the local community and American professionals and travelers.


I'm a mother to 4 bilingual and adventurous kids, I pride myself in living the entrepreneurial, freelance life as working from home has been a huge blessing for me as raised my family.   I work hard to make that same life possible for my freelance team.  Just as I guide them to design their lives with purpose, I also guide my clients to do the same thing.  It is my hope that no one I have the privilege of working with "go to the grave with the song still in them".... that I can help those who are unsure - discover their song, live it and share it with the world!
