I took action to reflect my life’s purpose. Later, UR Aware was created with the intention to help transform lives the way I changed mine.

One of the things I’m always asked is, “How did you get here?”

I remember the day I thought to myself, “Is there something more for me to do?” At the time I was working as an attorney at one of Wisconsin’s largest law firms. As I peered out my office window, on the 17th floor overlooking downtown Milwaukee, I knew in my heart that although I enjoyed the practice of law, there was something more that I was created to do.

In that moment I decided to embark on a journey of self-exploration to identify the life I truly desired. My journey led me to the realization that I had to let go of some old ways of thinking and say yes to the revelation that I could create a life aligned with my gifts and live a life authentically and unapologetically tailored to me.  I had to use all my gifts and strengths to impact the world in the unique way that I was purpose to.

My journey revealed that I am purposed to assist people with identifying what their dreams are and provide practical tools to pursue and achieve them.

Equipped with my passion to empower, and my expansive, professional experiences as an attorney, facilitator, non-profit leader, advocate and public servant, I help people transform their lives through my company UR Aware.

I use all of my gifts and talents to maximize my impact in the world to inspire people—like you—to create the life they truly desire.

A little bit more about me…

I travel…a lot.

I’m an advocate.

I love the arts.

I’m a visionary.

To travel is to evolve. I’ve traveled across the United States, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, France, and Germany. I studied abroad in Egypt and climbed Mount Sinai.

I’m a huge believer in equal opportunity and public safety. I promoted domestic violence prevention, encouraged civic engagement, equality, education, and empowerment.

It strengthens the mind and body. I’ve played the viola around the world and my poem was featured on NPR. I even took dance classes from Janet Jackson’s choreographers!

When I look beyond the water’s horizon, I think to myself, “You could be anywhere in the world.” In my work, I empower clients to look beyond their live’s horizons to discover infinite possibilities.
