You have to live it to give it.
It is important that you know that I too am on my Quest for my best! With many struggles and successes in my life, coaching changed me forever. In 2008 I hired a life coach to help me develop a long range career plan. With Vernita Steege as my coach I have navigated life and business transitions with great success. When I hired Vernita I wrote that I wanted to eventually launch my own coaching business. And here I am today, mission accomplished! Choosing to hire a coach has been the best monetary investment in me that I have ever made. I have gained skills, confidence and courage to take the appropriate action to make my dreams reality.
As goes the person, so goes their business.
As a Certified Life Coach and Consultant I focus on two major areas, life transitions coaching and business development consulting. In my experience, life and business success are connected. Success is a function of commitment to individual growth and improvement. When it comes to life and business, I believe we are always ‘marketing’ ourselves, or you might say, ‘presenting’ ourselves.
You are your brand.
My clients range from teens, to adults, to entrepreneurs and company professionals. Clients choose to hire me because they are ready to take action toward their goals. I love to help clients discover strengths, clarify purpose, develop their personal and professional brand, take action and celebrate successes! Connect with me. Let’s chat about you!
My Professional Summary…
Formal education and training includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from John Brown University and Life Coach Certification from The Gardner Institute in Allen, Texas. I am a proud graduate of Leadership Southlake Class 2015-2016. My professional experience includes award-winning business-to-business national account executive sales with innovative and courageous fortune 500 companies. My personal journey of recovery from alcoholism was the catalyst for identifying my purpose. Personal recovery changed my career path and led me to marketing roles for all levels of mental health and addiction treatment including detox, residential, inpatient, outpatient and transitional living programs. I founded a networking group for Collin County professionals, and co-founded the HOPE CEU Quarterly Series in Dallas. Recently, I launched the business development programs for two private school campuses, Fusion Academy in Dallas and in Southlake. Currently I serve on the Board of the Love, Cassidy Foundation, serve on the Keller ISD Stay on Track Coalition, the Prism Committee for Mental Health America of Greater Dallas, and hold a membership with the Southlake Chamber of Commerce.
Past community service includes positions on the Board of Dallas Texas Association of Addiction Professionals (TAAP), Addiction Professionals Resource Alliance (APRA), and The Eating Disorders Coalition for The Elisa Project.
Having lived in 6 states in my lifetime, Texas has been home since high school.

We have a blended family with 3 adult daughters; Desiree´, married to Tyler and living in Austin, Brittany, married to Mac and living in Los Angeles, and Kristen: a recent graduate of University of Texas and living in Austin.
