Christine knows you have better things to do than read her bio, but if you're curious, she coaches entertainers, executives, and professional athletes who are deeply interested in fearlessly creating their life through the masterful understanding of their own personal power. Her clients are people already experiencing great lives, who want to live exceptional lives. She and her husband and two dogs live in the hills of Pennsylvania, where their 8 year old daughter enjoys bossing them around.
She loves happy music, the outdoors, and being inappropriate at the best of times.
She’s most interested in freedom from illusions and perceptions that hold us in place, along with the mastery of understanding how she creates her life.
There’s not one right way to live life. There’s your way to live your life. I encourage your freedom.
Freedom doesn’t mean you break laws and rules and become a rebel in society. It doesn’t mean you disregard everyone else and do what you want at the expense of others.
True freedom is knowing you have a choice.
True freedom is knowing that you can choose how you want to feel in any circumstance.
True freedom is knowing your value whether or not you have the paper “credentials” to back you up.
True freedom is living a life that feels good, no matter what other people’s versions of what your life should be.
True freedom is knowing that you have the ability to feel good, no matter what the conditions are.
True freedom is following your guidance; following that inner voice calling you toward everything that you’ve ever wanted…and going.
You can live within rules, abide by laws and still feel free.
You can be married or in a committed relationship and still feel free.
You can have a child or children and still feel free.
You can have a job or two or four; own a business or three or ten and still feel free.
You can have employees, kids, a spouse, a partner, colleagues, peers and associates and still feel free.
It’s all in the mood and attitude that you have about it.
You have a choice to feel free or to feel trapped.
You have a choice to feel free or to feel confined.
You have a choice to feel free or to feel boxed.
Freedom is a state of mind, a state of being that is yours and yours to choose.
You can choose to live a life of limitation or, a live without limits.
It’s all perspective.
The Whole Story...
I’ve always been a freedom seeker.
I didn’t break rules per se, although I know for sure I broke some; I wasn't overtly a rebel. I did skip school a lot though.
I’ve always felt a pull in creating my own path rather than following someone else’s. You may be able to relate.
I’ve had a strong innate desire of independence since the beginning of time, as in – nobody’s going-to-tell-me-what-to-do entrepreneurial spirit, and living with an entrepreneurial father made it more palpable. I had jobs and quit them when I was asked to do things that I thought were unreasonable…or I just didn’t want to do.
I’m not commitment phobic; I’m just more committed to my personal freedom.
I took psychology throughout high school and attended university in Canada. After a while, I didn’t see the point of it, so I quit. I sold real estate, and I quit that, too. I dove into the banking industry, the insurance industry, had my own interior decorating business while also being employed in other jobs and I was a personal trainer for several years.
I quit all of those too.
Am I a quitter? It could be perceived that way...
What I know about myself is that I simply value my freedom more.
I value my internal compass more. I know that moving toward something can only keep life unfolding in better and better ways.
Quitter? I see it differently. Not fully committed? I see it differently.
I owned a brick and mortar business with my ex-husband for several years. I got in and got out once things were running smoothly to explore other interests.
I found things to do that I wanted to do more.
In time, I exited that business, selling my half to my amazing husband and partner of 15 years to continue an inside journey.
I ran toward more commitment to myself. And so there I went, committing to my freedom. Oxymoron? Not so.
I entered a Coaching Program for my personal benefit and also to become a Coach. I felt such a calling toward it - like I was born to do it.
After completing the training and with only two weeks before my certification, I left. Yes…I did.
I’d had a three week backpacking trip through France planned, and going would mean I wouldn't attend one final call, which was a course requirement. Given an ultimatum of sorts - to be on the call and complete the final requirement for graduation, or to miss the call and forfeit my graduation.
I realized that a diploma, certificate or evidence of completion was not that important to me. I'd received the intensive training and had what I needed. I was okay with that. I knew that I was already moving toward creating my own signature method with a less structured and free-flowing process.
I wanted my freedom more.
I’ve never once regretted not completing the requirements to get a piece of paper.
Or quitting. Or leaving.
I live a life guided by what feels right for me and if I don’t honor that guidance within, I can’t be a Coach that guides you toward your knowing.
I’ve been coaching now for 15 years through referrals only. I have as many clients as I choose and am blessed to find people that really want to do the work.
I married again and when I had our daughter, I took fewer clients and savored the time I had with our baby. As she moved through time and became more independent, I accepted more clients again.
The reason I'm sharing most of this comes down to one point.
You can live your life on your terms - in fact, you probably already are. You can do it by design or you can do it by default. I'm here to help you follow your intuition, do it by design and create your own path.
