Meet the Coach

Hello darlin’!


I’m so glad you made it!

My name is Jude and I am a recovering people-pleaser and perfectionist.

In the past, when I was unhappy, I thought it was because I wasn’t perfect.

The more unhappy I was, the harder I pushed for perfection. If only I were thinner, trendier, smarter, wife-ier…then, THEN! I would be happy. You can imagine how that turned out… I ended up exhausted and miserable. The problem with perfection is that it’s like the horizon…you can never actually get there.

When I think back to those days of never feeling good enough, what I remember is feeling like I was at the exact limit of holding my breath; I either take in a lungful and drown in the heavy, oily self-loathing I was living in or I struggle to the surface, stop pretending, and take my first real breath…as the real me. I ended up pulling the plug on my “perfect life” and now I can breathe. :)

So here I am, elbow deep in the sloppiness of an imperfect life and loving it!

In addition to being a life coach, I am also a registered nurse. I started my career as a Palliative care nurse, working with people looking back on their lives. The first thing I learned from my patients was that people who have come to the end of their life have an incredibly low tolerance for bullsh!t. They dont’t have the time or the energy for people and situations that don’t serve them. When time is precious, it gets very easy to figure out what’s important, and what’s just noise.

It was very inspiring.

I became a life coach to help people figure that stuff out BEFORE they get to the end of their life. I help people tune out the noise and answer two really important questions:

What do you want more of in your life… and what do you want less of?

Then I help you get the hell out of your own way so you can create a life that you love.
Are you ready to get off the hamster-wheel of perfectionism and people pleasing? (Don’t worry, I’ll spot you during the dismount).

Well then, let’s get started…

Ready to Make it Happen?

Buckle up! You're in for an empowering joyride of discovery and destiny.
