Escape Velocity Academy

"It's not about your present position, it's all about trajectory"

As a certified life coach, I help people navigate their way through difficult times in their lives. My goal is to help you make the best decisions based on your needs. Through cooperative, collaborative exploration of mindset and motivation we will identify the best ways to accomplish your goals and achieve your "impossible."

Cascade Falls


Inspiration / Intrinsic Motivation / Interpersonal Relationships / Investment / Intelligence

Intrinsic motivation - motivated by naturally enjoyable and interesting activities. We do it for the joy it brings.

Intelligence -  Embracing the beginners mindset and commitment to life long learning. 

Interpersonal relationships - only good people - we are the circle we keep.

Investing in ourselves so we have the capacity to invest in others. We can not pour from an empty cup.

Inspiration - breathwork and learning how to control the relaxation response to reduce stress. 

The growth process is not about your current position, it is all about trajectory.
