About Connie

Connie Presenting2_edited.JPG

 I have been in the helping field my entire adult life; first as a classroom teacher, an administrator, and now a career/life coach. I have seen young women give up on themselves, settle for the safe route, and never fully challenge themselves to attain their highest potential. In my book, Adolescent Girls at Risk, I tell the stories of three girls who each were on track for certain failure. They felt lost and unloved.

I, too, struggled in high school, not knowing where I fit in. Fortunately, for me, I held on tight to my one dream of becoming a classroom teacher. I imagined myself inspiring young children and motivating them to thrive. With that one goal in mind, I managed to find my way into college despite low grades and poor study habits. Back then there were few self-help books or mentors to guide me. That is why I wrote the Design Your Daring Life Workbook as the book I wish I had when I desperately needed that roadmap for life. 

Today, I coach women to break through their struggles and to step into their own power. My job as a coach is to challenge, support, and work alongside clients as they face their own fears of failure, rejection, and generally not feeling "good enough." Through coaching, my clients can uncover their truest gifts and passions and DARE to go after their dreamiest dreams and desires. When my clients succeed, I succeed, and the world becomes a much better place! Together, we can DARE to soar and live the life we're each meant to live!
