My mission...helping women live & love their messy lives...

Looking back over my life, I think I have always taken care of everyone else. The name Sandra means “defender of the people” and strangely enough I was born with a desire to help others. Social justice is one of my core values. But what that also meant was I became a people pleaser, a rescuer and a yes girl. As my “yes, I can do that” responses increased, so grew the overwhelm, and along with the overwhelm, there was resentment, “why don’t I get to do what I want to do? when will it be time for me”

I had a wonderful family and, a great job, however, I was exhausted most of the time, and that was the lens through which I viewed the world. Sadly, the continued stress from my overwhelm took its toll resulting in chronic health conditions.

Thankfully, although I didn’t see it as a positive at the time, I reached a point in my life where I couldn’t get a job. And so started a journey of retraining, not only of my skills but also of my thinking and beliefs. It was this study that changed my life and helped me develop a toolkit to navigate the overwhelm, and that is what I want to share with you.

I need to warn you, if you are looking for a coach with the body of a model, manicured nails, and teeth that make them a poster child for a dentist, then I’m probably not the coach for you…

But if you’re looking for someone who values authenticity and embraces imperfections, one who continues to live and embraces her own messy, imperfect beautiful life, then let’s have a chat.

"Treat people as if they were what they ought to be,
& you help them to become what they are capable of being...

Johann Wolfgang van Goethe
