This is my purpose.
In 2002, my oldest daughter was born and I ended my teaching career to become a stay-at-home mom. When she was 6 weeks old, we moved from my hometown in Montana to Colorado, where I knew only 7 people, to be near my husband’s job with a regional airline. Then I turned 30.
Any one of those life transitions could cause an identity crisis; but the combination of them sent me into a year-long tailspin as I tried to figure out who I really was, what direction my life needed to take, and how to have my own dream while my pilot husband lived his. If I’d known that life coaches existed then, I would have jumped at the chance to work with one. Instead, I muddled about, read books, tried new things, and took classes in an effort to establish an identity in my new normal.
In the past 18 years, I have been a ministry leader, Bible-study facilitator, English teacher for refugees, exercise instructor, speaker, writer, editor, and social media manager. Now, I’ve combined all those experiences with some training to become a life coach. I want to help women in aviation families be excited about their lives.
I now get to support and encourage pilot’s wives as they improve their marriage and parenting, form their own identity in the community and find purpose in daily life.
