A Bit About Me

As a mother of two with a fire fighter for a husband whose rarely home, I found myself burned out trying to be the super teacher and super mom. The only thing super about any of it was that I was left feeling super tired!

Scouts, sports, birthday parties, you name it I was making it happen.

Reading committee, book study, after school program, I was signing up for it.  If it had not been for the Pandemic, I may never have finally slowed down. 

A book study, Covid, seeking therapy, and beginning a new job are a few of the contributing factors that led to the creation of Lit Life Planning and Consulting LLC.

​I had to get real with myself about the kind of mother and educator I truly wanted to show up as daily and establish a plan to make that happen.   During my time of self reflection I discovered the power of having a LIT mindset which is one that promotes loyalty, intentionality, and time.  

I learned to say no, created schedules for both work and home obligations, established boundaries, and began to spend more of my time living and less time working. 

Once I realized the impact these small changes were having for me, I decided to help other mothers and educators establish a LIT mindset so they too can live more and work less!
