I was failing…
…out of the pre-med program in high school. I didn’t think that I could handle the coursework to become a psychologist. (That was a traumatic awakening at 16 years old, for real!) I took a business class and wallah, accounting was my new friend!
Well, not really, after a few courses in college, I ditched my suit and sensible heels to follow my heart in writing and video production. I graduated with my degree in journalism and communication and spent the next 10 years producing commercials for the music industry. I climbed the ladder to the famed position of “Producer of TV & Radio Advertising” for a bad as record label.” Hot damn!
It was such a rush working with tight deadlines, creative collaborators and sometimes even REAL celebrities. I loved it!
Until I became pregnant…
The late night studio sessions quickly lost their sparkle as I struggled to stay alert. I took 6 months maternity leave and once my angel was born, I never looked back. I remembered feelings of abandonment from missing my own mom as she worked late hours to make ends meet and the years of healing I’d spent to become whole.
I decided to let my career take a hit for my kid’s sake. I would be that mom who was there 100%!
I would create deep and loving communication packed with countless fun memories that would make the difference in their self esteem and future. Bam!
I wrote my resignation and took the leap into being a stay at home mom!

The Goddess emerges…
Since hiring my first coach way back in the 90’s, I’ve been on a mission to reclaim my own identity which makes my heart sing. I’ve had a calling for as long as I can remember to help women be stronger, to rise up from the ashes and learn how to love themselves more.
As I came into my own power and grew bold enough to expand my vision of how I wanted to impact the world, I knew I wanted to serve women – specifically – grown ass moms of teens and adults.
The moms who are overwhelmed and burnt like toast having given up everything for their kids with nothing left for themselves. I studied to become a trained coach who would provide that critical support that I received which helped me turn my life around, take control and responsibility for my grown ass destination!
“Mighty is the power of a grown ass woman unleashed!”
Singing in NYC!
Oh hell, I’m still a Goddess in progress and I’m truly proud of the work I’ve done on myself first, so that I could share it with grown ass moms like you. I’m in awe of my damn self everyday and grateful for the grown ass fire that wakes me up every morning to create the life of MY dreams.
I’m prioritizing MY life, putting my joy FIRST, making music, dancing, running a business and being a great mom. Yes, I still volunteer but only for projects that I want to be involved in – definitely not ruled by the shoulds anymore! Whoo hoo! I am free! I’m doing things that light me up.
Isn’t that what you want? A life of your own…beyond motherhood?
That’s why I’m here…to help you get the courage to take your life back from living as a thankless, indentured servant indentured servant a.k.a. #MommyMartyr!
When a woman finally learns that pleasing the world is impossible, she becomes free to learn how to please herself.”
There will be push back and trust me, because you’ve probably spoiled your family rotten! I know what it’s like to feel hopeless and forgotten like you don’t even freaking matter and that you’re “the help” that cleans it all up no matter what time of the night and puts all Humpty’s pieces back together again without even a “thank you.”
When I look around, I see so many smart, capable women who have lost themselves in motherhood. Is that you? As you face your aging teens and the soon to be empty nest, are you wondering when life passed you by and if it’s too late? I sense the sadness in your heart and want you to feel alive again with passion, sass and purpose! Yes!
Can you feel the breeze from that open door? Inviting you to take control of your untapped future and light it up with grown ass adventures that have you singing “Life IS Good NOW!”
THIS is why I do what I do! I’m here to help you reclaim and redesign your life in a way that makes you feel sassy, sexy and satisfied. Ready to take the first step? Book a call with me to explore how I can support you in reclaiming your identity, and your life!
I love igniting moms with their dreams!
Here’s What Happy Clients Say About Me
Prior to receiving coaching from Yvette, [life] was exhausting and overwhelming…coaching was like having a third eye – it allowed me an opportunity to celebrate me and to be honest [with myself] and accountable.
I learned to operate from my essence rather than from a reactionary place. My thinking was also expanded…Yvette helped me to identify growth areas and provided tools for overcoming my limitations in those areas. I appreciate her candidness and approach to coaching.
