Hi, I'm Erin.
I spent a good part of my adult life feeling stuck.
Stuck at work.
Stuck in energy-sucking relationships.
Stuck in bad habits.
Stuck in cycles of negative thinking.
Stuck feeling exhausted by adulting.
I kept pushing toward some ideal version of myself, believing that life could be better if I could just figure out where I needed to be fixed. It was like my life was a string of Christmas lights that wasn't working quite right, and if I could just untangle it the right way and figure out which bulbs were burnt out, I would finally be able to plug it in and operate at full capacity.
I read books, listened to podcasts, watched TED talks, read blog posts, and followed people on social media, attempting to fix the places where I was broken. My approach was intellectual - I thought that understanding new ways of doing things would be the key to overcoming the obstacles in my life. Turns out I was wrong.
When I turned 39, I decided the year leading up to my 40th birthday would be "the year of Erin." I set some new goals for myself and pushed out of my comfort zone. One new thing I tried was hiring a coach, even though our finances weren't in a great place. I decided it was time to take a leap of faith in ME and believe that I am worth investing in.
What I've learned since then is this: personal growth isn't intellectual, it's experiential and relational. It requires having people outside of my own skin to be with me in the process. It's not about "fixing" my deficiencies, it's about learning how to navigate the positive and negative realities of my life - accepting both as parts of who I am and believing that I don't have to come to a perfected version of myself in order to qualify for having a successful life.
Now, I'm passionate about guiding others on their own personal growth process. I've found that personal growth really sucks - it requires pushing into discomfort, trying new things, and being willing to look below the surface. But it's worth it. Every single time I decide to push into new growth, I'm excited to see what's on the other side.
I've also realized that I can't do this alone. I need a support system of friends and family, but I also need coaches who can give me dedicated time and a structured path to keep moving forward.
A few other things about me... I'm a wife to Mike, mom to Kaitlyn and Lilly, and in 2020, literally a week before the pandemic shut everything down, I quit my job of 16 years to start my own business.
I'm an enneagram 9 and an INFP. I'm pretty sure I have ADHD, something I was surprised to learn as an adult. I've struggled throughout my life with procrastination, emotional eating, and not showing up as my whole self in relationships. I'm continually rediscovering how none of these things disqualifies me from being amazing and living life to the fullest.
I'm a "type b" leader who values intuition, empathy, curiosity, and naps. I'm energized by helping other people shift into new perspectives and have "aha!" moments that transform their lives.
