Well, hi there! I'm so glad you found me!  

If you are visiting me today feeling overwhelmed by life, please know you are not alone! You have a friend who wants nothing more than to sit down with you, grab a cup of coffee, and hear your story.

I want to wipe away the tears that fall as you wonder, “How much longer can I keep going?,” “Will it ever get better?!,” and "Why is life so tough?" Through tears and laughter, a message of hope and possibility will be shared. 

If you find yourself needing this message of hope, I invite you to follow me. By subscribing to my blog posts, you will find inspiration, know-how, and permission to simplify your life, set and stick to boundaries, cope with stress, embrace self-care, find purpose and meaning in life, slow down and rest, and live life intentionally. 

My goal in each post I write, is to show you that despite the chaos of life, living an intentional life with God and His truth as the foundation, is not only possible but essential in order to thrive. If you are tired of being exhausted, weary, stressed, overwhelmed, and defeated by life and are ready to do something about it, then this blog is for you! (You can sign up at the bottom of this page). 

You can expect one newsletter a month. In this newsletter, you will find blog posts I have written over the month, along with blog posts from others I deeply respect, book reviews, and other goodies that serves to fill you.

For 12 years, I worked at Concordia University, St. Paul in the Kinesiology and Health Sciences Department as a professor. During my tenure, I taught a variety of classes, advised students on their academic pursuits, and collaborated with colleagues in a professional learning community. It was in this small group, that I helped write a book, and presented at numerous conferences around engaging students in the classroom. 

Prior to being a professor, I worked as a sport psychology consultant, helping individual athletes and teams gain the mental edge in their sport. I also helped injured athletes mentally recovery from an injury. My own years of being a gymnast and seeing teammates physically and psychologically suffer an injury lead me to this profession and degree.

I worked at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota as a Johannson-Gund scholar between my Master's and Doctoral work. It was there that I performed much of my sport psychology services, while also conducting research, and publishing research articles around the psychology of sport injury. 

I have been been married to my best friend, Andrew, for fifteen years. We have three beautiful children, Will, Anna, and Lily. We live outside of St. Paul, Minnesota and attend Shepard of the Valley Lutheran Church in Afton, Minnesota.  

In my free time, I love to spend my summer's "Up North" while dreaming about living "Down South" in the winter. I love to paddle board, practice holy yoga, be in community with family and friends, and decorate my house through retail therapy.
