Ready to create a legacy that will last for generations?

Having a “successful” life isn’t just about making money, it’s about creating a legacy.

A legacy that will last for generations.

I am a proud, first-generation Filipino American.

I had straight A’s, and was valedictorian three times.

My grandmothers who are pictured here, are my Queens.

I grew up with Nana organizing family parties (my grandma to the right), and Mamang who raised me and my brothers, while my parents went to work (my grandma to the left). We took this picture when I graduated with a Masters of Science in Leadership and Management.

When I graduated college, I became a grassroots organizer, knocking on doors and doing phone calls. Within 6 months, I organized 557 volunteers. After five years working in politics, I became a nonprofit fundraiser and raised $1 million in student scholarships in six months.

Raising money for college students was my proudest accomplishment.

And it made me realize that I wanted more. I wanted to help others reach their own goals to honor and create their legacy. So I started my Business and Career Coaching company.

I quickly realized that I didn’t like how other coaching businesses focused on the followers and growing huge lists.

I wanted to create a business aligned to me where I built real, transformational relationships – what I’d learned in my grassroots organizing and fundraising experience.

As a result, I’ve had six-figure launches, mentored clients to reach their own financial goals, and had two clients hit multi-seven figures this year.

What I realize is that you can create a business and career that is aligned to you by simply being you.

I help my clients create for more than themselves, while still staying in integrity to a life they love.

This is what I call the Color Your Dreams® process.

My real passion is helping high level performers find their strengths and gifts within themselves, and guide them to learn how to showcase and create systems to make a true legacy during this lifetime.

My clients create a legacy they truly desire and understand that it is a choice. A choice we work towards every day!

The legacy you want to create is what you truly desire.

Together, my clients and I unveil them and create an aligned legacy to make their dreams a reality.  

We start with deep, inner work to create a lasting transformation, while creating tactical strategies for a profitable business.

We’re not just creating a business together, we’re creating YOUR legacy.

Want to get personal and know more about me? That’s fair!

Our work will be close. Alright, here you go…

My Story:

⦿  I am a First-Generation Filipino American. My family immigrated from the Philippines to work in the grapevines in Porterville, California (Central California).

⦿  I’ve lived in 6 different states (Iowa, Indiana, Montana, New Mexico, Massachusetts and of course, California!).

⦿  I started doing Muay Thai (Thai Kickboxing) when I was 16 because I was being bullied and this was a great outlet to feel like I had my own back.

⦿  I’ve had 25 different jobs, was fired 3 times, and quit 3 times to find a career I currently love.

⦿  I left my dream job to go full time into my dream business.

⦿  I have a Masters in Leadership and Management.

⦿  I’ve negotiated my salary twice while working with a coach, which led to a $12,000 raise and $26,000 raise.

⦿  I paid off $30,000 in undergrad debt, and paid my way through graduate school with a $30,000 tuition.

My story has led me to…

⦿  Knowing how to deal with conflict and toxic environments by being assertive.

⦿  Living a healthy and holistic life. I listen to my body. I love doing Bikram Yoga, weight-lifting, and hiking.

⦿  Creating boundaries with work, family and all aspects of my life.

⦿  Saying no to people and events that no longer serve me.

⦿  Working and investing on my own coaches since 2014, and my own therapists since 2005.

⦿  Making mistakes that help me learn more about myself.

⦿  Honoring my family’s sacrifices by living my dreams (and wanting the same for you!)

⦿  Becoming reiki-certified and currently undergoing a Trauma Informed Certification.

Throughout my life, I have always taken aligned action to my soul’s calling.

Here’s a 3 minute vulnerable video of the exact moment I decided to leave my job to go full time into my coaching business. This was December 2017.

These days, I am focused on helping women create their own legacy. A legacy that is defined by them and on their own terms.
