It started with the ring of a hotel room phone.
I didn’t think anyone even knew who I was yet.
Apparently my all-star-volunteer reputation had preceded me to Fort Bragg. Before we were even settled, someone from post was calling to ask for my help — again, without pay.
Normally, I would have said yes. But on this day, I said no.
For 22 years, I had helped volunteer at schools, led community events, and supported my husband’s military career. While I enjoyed doing these things, I was burnt out on putting my own values, dreams, and goals on hold.
Things started to change when I decided to choose me. Soon, I had a career I enjoyed. (With a real paycheck!) Plus, I still had time for things I considered fun and things that directly impacted my husband and two boys. Win – win.
Want to know how I made the switch and stuck with it? It’s called, “Power of Choice.” Join me this month as we kick-off InDependent’s “The Milspo’s Guide to Self-Care” virtual series. Register here to participate.
During the month of January, I’ll help you create the life YOU want. In my short presentation, I will teach you how to:
- Choose intentionally
- Define your direction
- Create habits
- Uncover your why
In addition, I’ll provide you with helpful resources along the way.

New year. New you. Let me help you get started.
