Life doesn’t always go the way we think it will.

I believe struggles are an opportunity to learn more, understand how to improve and take the leap into your greatness.

I help ordinary people become superheroes and I can help you too!

You can find loads of ways to do this on the site; from videos and podcast to blog posts and ways to connect.

You can change your life through small consistent steps, with no fear, but instead confident purposeful action.

Let’s go Live Big,



I help ordinary people become superheroes and live to their full potential!


I grew up in Vermont but have been a southern girl since leaving college. I had an award-winning sales career before shifting focus to spend more time with family and chase my entrepreneurial dreams. I’ve owned a CrossFit gym, created a successful online business, written several books and speak all over the country! I am a certified NLP Coach, a certified happiness coach (Yes, that’s a thing!) and I believe that our attitude directs our life. I’ve had some failures, and I’m not afraid to share because I think failure is where it’s at. It’s how we learn and grow! 


The Art of Living Big brings you inspiration to how you live your every day by sharing interviews & tips to living a Big Life. They have tried something new, gone against the grain or are just living mindfully with small, consistent steps towards the life that brings them joy. We can learn from their stories and begin to believe in ourselves along the way.


My Qualifications

I have a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Certification from The iNLP Center.  NLP is a program designed to impact the 3 most influential components in the human experience: Neurology, communication,  and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create.

I have an Infinite Possibilities Life coaching program certification, I am a certified happiness coach and am a member of the International Association of Professional Life Coaches. Additionally, I hold a degree is a psychology from Castleton University. I’m the author of several books and programs that help people make substantial changes in their lives and begin to live more full, happy lives. I’ve started, bought and sold brick & mortar, as well as online businesses, and worked with others to help them achieve their career goals.
