Hi! I'm Holly!


I help women discover their comeback story when facing adversity in life.


What some people see as failure, I view as the path to success. 

What some people view as rock bottom, I view as the chance to write a new chapter.

And not from a Holly-anna approach (see what I did there) that's all fakey positivity.

I've been through my share of difficult times - being bullied, breast cancer, autoimmune disease, debilitating chronic fatigue, being forced to resign from my dream job, losing my mother, and divorce. Just to name a few. 

Your struggle IS your strength. I want to help you write this new chapter in your life.

I've combined my background in Project Management with mindset and the science of neuroplasticity and psychoneuroimmunology so that you can experience an entire right-left brain approach to achieve your goals. 


BTW - when we work together, you must know:

➡ I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania.

➡ If we are ever in the car together, I like to sing REALLY loud to 80's songs and totally off-key. 

➡ If you get me laughing, I will snort.

➡ Even though I come across as gregarious, I am an off-the-charts introvert. And if you're into the personality stuff... I'm an INTJ, D/C, and Enneagram Type 1/Perfectionist. (This means, I will get you results, but while I'm wearing my comfy pants).

Your first step... pick what fits best with your organization or personal journey and let's do this TOGETHER!



Are you looking to optimize your organization so that you can increase employee retention and productivity with happier, healthier employees? Keynote speeches and workshop facilitation are available in person or virtually.



Tune in every week as we optimize gratitude, mindset, and resilience so that you can discover your comeback story and turn your struggle into your greatest strength.



Are you ready to take bold action which produces impactful results? If you want to experience a deeper and more profound transformation, then a private coaching package may be right for you!

➡ Every day should be full of love, hugs, and inspiration.

➡ Every challenge is a GIFT in disguise.

➡ Gratitude has the power to bring together people of ALL FAITHS in the spirit of LOVE and HAPPINESS.

➡ Your adversity is YOUR WAKE UP CALL - this is YOUR TIME to discover your comeback story and to turn your struggle into your strength, purpose, and power.

I BELIEVE IN YOU. And my mission is to help you believe in yourself.
