Let me introduce myself...

According to Facebook, my business "officially" started in 2017, but I actually started changing my lifestyle in 2014 when I was desperate to find a solution to a big struggle.

That's where it begins for most people, with a strong desire to find a solution. It could be a health issue or a financial issue, an emotional issue or a physical issue. That desire to find a solution led me to change my lifestyle and become a Natural Wellness Coach.

I meet new women every day who are struggling with something and I get to connect with them to create change in their lifestyles. Together, we use things like essential oils, personal development, practicing gratitude, and creating simple habit changes to create a very intentional lifestyle that fits.

I am passionate about helping women find who they are (or remember who they were) and HOW they are so that when they begin taking steps towards change, it's in a way that honors their own unique abilities and desires. The best part about the work I do, is that I do it honoring who I am, how I work, and with 100% authenticity.

I live intentionally every day. I don't have to compare myself to anyone else or know all the things there are to know. And I don't have to worry about things that have happened in the past. I intentionally create exciting, energizing, and fun journeys to inspire others to see how their lives can transform. I honor my core values and beliefs and honor those of others. I celebrate every success, be it big or small and I create strong relationships with clear boundaries while expressing deep gratitude for each person, place, or thing that is placed in my path.

With my vast mental file cabinet of experience, education, and resources I am able to share the steps to build strong foundations in wellness, relationships, livelihood, and faith.

But most of all, I help women learn to live intentionally from their heart.


Valerie is amazing! I had all these jumbled-up thoughts bouncing around in my head, but I had no idea how to turn them into an actual plan. That's where Valerie came in! She took all my scattered ideas and mashed them up into a solid, actionable plan that I could actually put into motion. It was like magic, y'all! She's also incredibly supportive and encouraging, which made the process so much easier.

So, if you've got a bunch of thoughts swirling around in your head and you're not sure how to turn them into something real and actionable, reach out to Valerie. Trust me, you won't regret it!

I’ve bought oils from Val a few times in the past year, she’s always been incredibly knowledgeable and helpful highly recommend her as a resource and as someone to support in her business. She is truly a kind and honest soul looking to support people’s journeys.


I have learned that most of our physical challenges are actually rooted in the spirit, including emotions. When we realize our bodies are communicating to us through symptoms we are experiencing, we can then begin to unravel what it’s really saying.

Val’s emotional coaching guides you in a breakthrough activity to decode and release these rooted emotions. With the support of pure essential oils, she encouraged and supported me in the process of true healing. Her intuitive coaching approach created a comfortable and tranquil experience, which I needed. Emotions can be hard to define and work through but she encouraged and allowed me space to fully feel what I needed to feel. This process uplifted and empowered me to let go of emotions holding me down. Val helped me shift my focus to a bigger and brighter future. I found hope again. If you seek support in your healing and health journey, look no further! Val is here to guide you in uncovering the answers you seek that are already within you!


I had taken the Strengths Finder assessment a while ago but never did anything with it. One day when Val and I were talking about challenges with our business she brought up the Strengths Finders and all she had done with it. She offered to do a deep dive on my assessment and she really opened my eyes!!!! The next class I taught went really well, I was so comfortable and I ended with several enrollments.


Everyone wants to improve something in their life, whether it’s their family, relationships, health, income or professional achievements...

I knew I had to turn to Valerie for a little help to get my journey kicked off in the right direction. I knew it was the right time to take the plunge and get my Strengths Test done, and analyzed.

After taking my strengths test, it helped me determine the areas in my life that need improvement, turn them into goals or make them key subjects of my goals.

Self-improvement and personal development is a continuous process that only ends when life ends. To improve your living conditions as well as your mental, physical, and social health, you need to continually seek upward progression.

Having a self-improvement plan helps you to better understand yourself, your needs, and the strategies that you should follow to get the results you want to achieve.

Are you now ready to write your own self-improvement plan? Get with Valerie. She won't steer you wrong.

Desire to Change

April 20, 20234 min read

The desire to change is natural but never on schedule. Just like the seasons, things change when it's the right time.

As babies, we unknowingly desire change. We want to be held, walk, eat, play, and do all the growing up things because that's nature. As children our desires change a little and we start to desire friends and socializing. As teens, we desire to just fit in with everyone else, when everyone else is having that same desire. As adults, the desire to change comes with the changes of our own seasons: marriage, divorce, children, grandchildren.

Through all our life, we are constantly going through change, but there is a deeper desire that people have. The desire to change their life and the lives of others.

One of the things I was reading this morning talked about the desires for change when we have a purpose in life. That purpose usually comes from a desire for change when we are younger. We start to see the vision that is our purpose for being on this planet. And if we embrace it, we gain the ability to change others around us.

My desire is to empower women.

Sounds pretty cliché. But when I look at my life, and share it with others, a pattern behind the desire starts to show.

When I was 13 years old my family moved from Arizona to Idaho. Talk about change! I had never lived anywhere else. I had never had to make new friends because the friends I had were there from birth. This change in my impressionable years was more traumatic than I realized at the time. But it started the desire in me to be empowered. I had no idea at 13 years old what that even meant, but looking back now, it was there.

Between the ages of 15 and 21 I was all about change. Changing my personality to fit in with others. Changing my style to fit in with others. Changing my hair to fit in with others. Everything was about trying to fit in with the "right" crowd. During those years, I wasn't empowering myself at all. That's where the desire to be empowered got a little twisted. My desire was to be empowered, but only with the right people. Side note: some of those people were TOTALLY not the right people.

At 22 years old, I was married to my first husband. The desire to empower myself to be "the good wife" was strong....and again, for the wrong reasons. We were very young and naïve about what marriage should look like. Needless to say, that marriage did not last very long.

At 25 I was in my second marriage which would be the one to start my desire to empower MYSELF instead of others. That marriage lasted 11 years. In those years I was a very empowered woman outside of my home. I am grateful for the lessons learned in that marriage and grateful that it did not last.

The desire to change usually comes from a desire to survive.

That's what happened to me. Almost 14 years ago, my marriage was over, I was a single mom, I lost my car, and I was loosing my house. I had no desire for anything except survival. I wasn't thinking about being an empowered woman who could take life on by herself. It was all survival instinct.

Fast forward to today. I sit in my office, writing my feelings and thoughts to share with other women because I have finally reached a point where I feel empowered. I can care for my family and friends. I can support other women. I can help them find their desire. I have all these amazing tools that were actually there the entire time.

My desire has never changed. I have always wanted to be and to help others be empowered. I have always wanted a woman to feel like she was enough, to be loved by someone, to be successful, and to embrace their authentic self, no matter what their age. I just didn't know until my season changed.

What is your desire? What do you want to change? Has it been something in the shadows for a long time? Is it something new? Whatever it is, don't be afraid to change a little before your season changes. We don't always have to wait for the snow to melt.
