a little bit about me

I’m an artistic soul with a vein for academia who, perhaps like you, has struggled at life, trying hard to find my path. 
It wasn’t until a few years ago, that I gathered the fragmented parts of myself, connected with my heart, grew my wings and took flight as a fully connected woman. And in taking flight, I was able to get a good look at my life and realize that I’ve always been a passionate creative that loves to help people become the best version of themselves.
I’m a nurse turned mom turned theologian turned Air Force chaplain turned psychotherapist turned pastor turned life coach & businesswoman. Quite the journey, huh? This amazing journey has provided me the perfect foundation to become a great life coach. 

I am a coach, healer and speaker

guiding women like you to your truth

“Eva was the perfect person for what I wanted to work on. Having a history of living overseas, raised in another culture, knowing what it’s like to move to a new country, and understanding & appreciating a faith in God, allowed us to talk openly with one another and address the topics I wanted to address. I think with any kind of life coaching it requires there to be a willingness to make a connection, and if one does this, it allows BOTH the coach and the client to make the progress and work valuable.” T. Jackson

my personal mission

“… to thrive with passion, compassion, humor and style.” –Maya Angelou

My personal mission “…to thrive with passion, compassion, humor and style” is infused in my approach as a coach:

~ I’m passionate about empowering women to live grounded in their identity, fully connected to all parts of their being and using their voices to step boldly into their destiny enacting positive change in themselves and their environment.

~ My compassion shows through as I create a safe space that allows clients to consider areas of their lives that they want to change, enhance or awaken.

~ Humor is the key to having a joy filled heart, therefore; I work with my clients finding ways to stay positive and enjoy the little things in life that bring joy and make souls smile.

~ Finally, my style is unique to my personality: empathic, brave, flamboyant, creative, grounded, intuitive, passionate, and unapologetic. It shows in the coaching relationship as I call out the client’s strengths and resources so she becomes aware that within her are the tools to succeed and self-innovate.
