My Journey


Where to begin...My obsession with all things mystical, historical, and esoteric has always existed, however, I was raised Southern Baptist and didn't fully lean into my personal spirituality practice until adulthood. I had my first "real" tarot reading in my late 20's and have been hooked on the cards since. Astrology, Herbalism & the craft all came quickly and naturally for me and I felt like I had finally come home.

My journey as an entrepreneur and business coach is spoken about in my podcast, The Moon in Carolina. You can listen to that here.

I am constantly learning, growing & evolving. My passion is helping others find the thing that makes them light up, and hten find a way to monetize it.

Manifesting & creating...my two favorite things.

My Approach


As a Business Coach, I guide with experience and intuition. I have over 20 years of experience in building successful and profitable businesses. I believe the only way to grow in any area of life is to approach it from a holistic perspective and examine it as a whole. That is what my program does.

When choosing a reader, practitioner, or coach, it is important to find someone you connect & align with. Before booking a course, please feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have about me or my approach to these modalities.
