From self-defense, comfortable bras, freedom to chose, and confidence I’ve always wanted to empower women.
In college, I became passionate about empowering women and improving access to skills and information. I knew women and girls were getting mixed messages about their bodies, their right to say no, and whether they deserve to feel safe or actually be safe at all. Our culture faults women for the abuses they suffer and pressures them to please others even when uncomfortable.
Out of college, I lost my support network and turned to toxic relationships to quiet my feelings of loneliness. It took me years to untangle myself from one man in particular. He was everything that the movies and romance novels describe: older, wise, attentive, attractive, strong, exciting, mysterious and... controlling.
I loved him, but looking back, I didn’t like myself in relationship with him. I ignored my priorities, became a bad friend and only thought about the next time I would see him.
I was addicted to him.
I considered myself one of the most confident women I knew, yet I chose a relationship that stripped a lot of that confidence away. One comment from him about how I needed to lose weight lead me to lose 30 pounds and develop an eating disorder that endangered my health.
I knew this relationship wasn't good for me, but the good times were so good, like a high. Over time, it become harder and harder to get the same high.
I had to find something better than the rollercoaster of romance. I had to discover my purpose.
I help women find the confidence to create their own dependable journey, meet their own needs, achieve the careers they want, and choose relationships that support, respect, and inspire them.
I graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and minors in French, and Gender/Sexuality Studies.

I've worked with women's crisis organizations and police bureaus on violence prevention and self-defense programs for young women and girls, GirlStrength. In addition to confidence coaching, I am an official instructor of Vibrant Voice Technique. I founded The Confidence Society in 2018.
