Lyfe Smarts Coaching and Consulting


As the Relational Strategist, I enjoy helping high-performing individuals and organizations teams boost productivity through self-care. Self-care within organizations? YES!! Relationships at work have a personality of its own. Know and value what each team member brings to your organization.


High energy, engagement, work satisfaction and increased productivity are a few of the results you can experience while cultivating individual and team relationships. Imagine what it would look like for everyone to bring their best selves to the team, every day, and connect in a meaningful way!


Let me support you personally and/or your team with obtaining a higher level of synergy, confidence, goal setting and fulfillment in and out of the workplace. That's what synergy is about - bringing a sort of balance to your space so that all parts of your life work in harmony with one another.

How Effective Are You as a Leader?



A wife, mother and yes a G’Mama, and like most people spent many years watching from the sidelines as life passed by. I had a corporate career that I loved yet didn’t feel fulfilled at the end of most days. I felt as if I was living a facade, (pretty convincingly) yet often confused about the value I brought to the table. I overcompensated to feel important; the more accolades received, the harder I worked. And you guessed it – I was addicted to validation. This quote by Jim Morrison sums it up:
