"How we think, feel and act creates our personal reality."
Hello and Welcome! My name is Morning Star... and yes, It’s my birth given name! I’m a Certified Life Coach and I specialize in Mindset & Lifestyle strategy. My passion as a Coach is to lead you into your ULTIMATE LIFE of your own design by helping you build a rock solid mindset, accessing your unique inner gifts, and unshakable power within.
You may be wondering what it is about “mindset” and “lifestyle” that drives me as a Coach. Well, I’ve lived my entire life as far back as I can remember through the eyes of delightful discovery, freedom, optimism, and passion. From a young age I understood very well that this was the life I had to live and I was determined to make it as enriched and as joyful as I possibly could. I've figured out the key ingredients to living my extraordinary life: a life on my terms, with ultimate freedom working for myself, designing my schedule, my adventures, travel, health, fitness, and finances to match what my heart desires. But I didn't get here without facing challenges, digging deep, finding courage to grow and take risks; falling on my face, getting back up and never, ever giving up.
When I was embarking upon the world as a young adult, I received some very wise and valuable advice from my mother who said, “follow your heart and you can’t go wrong.” That sounded good enough for me, and so I did. I fueled my passion for a playful, adventurous life living in the mountains in Oregon, California, and Colorado. I fell in love with snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, and being in touch with the elements of nature. I discovered my spirituality, and started seeking answers for questions like “why are we here” and “what does it mean to be a human being in this day and age?” Personal growth and development became a dedicated interest, and since my early 20’s, I’ve studied with and learned from mentors, coaches, thought leaders, and spiritual teachers.
I discovered a passion for serving others through healing and bodywork and I acquired training and certifications to serve me in a flourishing career as a Massage Therapist and Reiki Master-Teacher. I then merged my career purpose and my lifestyle passions and settled in the Rocky Mountains. Here at the age of 30, I bought a home in walking distance to a world class ski resort, I got engaged, and I opened my first business, Morning Star Wellness Center. It was quite a year!
After years went by, I realized there was one important thing missing, and that was the love of my dreams. I had accomplished so much but I knew deep down inside that I wasn’t being true to myself to remain in my marriage... I desired a different relationship experience, and I was determined to find it. So amidst the recession and a divorce in 2010, I relocated to my home state in Portland, Oregon, to be near my twin sister, Evening Star! I started my life all over again and it was the hardest thing I ever did, but also the best and most rewarding. Because of where I stand today, I wouldn’t trade the hardships I went through for the world.
As I rebuilt my life I learned that if I wanted a whole, successful life, I needed to bridge a gap within myself in order to bridge the gap outside of myself. I became resourceful and began building an empowered mindset to fortify my self confidence, self worth, and self love; release limiting beliefs and ways of being that didn’t serve me, keep fine-tuning my inner compass and go after my dreams!
I’m grateful and blessed to say that through a lot of sweat, tears, and growing pains, I’ve achieved a whole, successful life and have made wonderful dreams come true once again! I have an abundant life full of love, peace, harmony, family, perfect health, career success, and freedom! Since being in Portland I found the love of my life and inherited his two lovely girls! We fuel our passions for healthy living, self-expansion, adventure, travel, and creating an extraordinary life together.
My career path has been well textured over 20 years as an Entrepreneur, Business Consultant, Life Coach, Wellness Coach, Wellness Practitioner, and in personal development training. I hold certifications in Life Coaching, Massage Therapy, Reiki (Master-Teacher), and Cranio-Sacral Therapy. I have expansive knowledge of the human body and inner-workings of our mind and emotions. I have an unyielding passion for understanding the true essence of our human nature and making our life experience the best that it can be.
My greatest honor as a Coach is to guide my clients into the light and power within them to live out their destiny through their passions and purpose. I’ve learned that we can do things the hard way if we want to, but I’ve also learned that there’s a much easier way to transform our lives and manifest our ultimate desires.
My biggest aim as a Mindset & Lifestyle Coach is to equip my clients with a strategy and empowered mindset to achieve their goals, create lasting change, and life-long happiness with EASE... What dreams are waiting for you?
