I'm Abby and I'm so glad you're here.
Over the last several years I've journeyed through the nonprofit, graduate school, marketing and writing worlds to get to where I am today. All of these experiences led me to becoming a Personal Growth Coach - where I walk alongside others towards wholeness.
I learned about the importance of self-care after burning out and realizing how I had zero boundaries in my life. Understanding that self-care isn't selfish and that Jesus said love your neighbor as yourself rather than in spite of yourself revolutionized my life.
I've always loved any and all personality tests, but I fell in love with the Enneagram when I experienced its transformational power in my own life. It's the best tool I've ever seen for personal growth. I identify as a type 2.
I grasped the importance of creating healthy culture at organizations when I did my thesis on creating cultures of self-care at faith-based, nonprofit organizations. Stress, burn out and exhaustion don't have to characterize the good work we do. There's a better way.
I deeply love people and relationships. I've always said my dream job would be to just get together with people over coffee every day and talk about life. Being a coach basically lets me do that every day!
I've always been a writer. Words are how I make sense of the world and after not writing for awhile I notice I don't breathe as deep. It's one of my #1 self-care tools.
My heart beats for justice and Jesus. We are all created with the stamp of the Creator God on us and I long to see justice roll down for all people. We as individuals and our world cannot be whole while injustice prevails.
All of these areas melded together and led me to start my own business. I get to meet with individuals and work with organizations to help people understand themselves better and take steps to cultivating health and wholeness in their life. I'm honored to be a part of other's journey towards wholeness.
When I'm not doing my business thing, you can find me traveling to visit my nephews and nieces (and their parents), enjoying my home in Nashville, reading, spending time with the amazing humans I'm lucky to call friends, listening to some kind of podcast or re-watching another episode of Parks and Rec.
I would love to hear from you - don't hesitate to reach out!
