Design your Life
I have a variety of interests and things I love to do that all stem from my love of art and design. From music and painting to cooking, DIY projects, organization, minimalism, and a long-standing love of personal development and learning new skills. All of these paths have brought me to a place where I want to share what I have learned with others. I have a passion for designing my life. I believe that each person can master the deliberate design of their own life. From health and relationships to the spaces you live and work in. All can be mastered with a series of small steps and new habits. Believe me, if I can do it you can do it.
I came from a small economically depressed town. I barely made it through high school and I ran with a rough crowd, to put it mildly. My idea of a meal most days was to gulp down a cheap cup of coffee while puffing on a pack of generic cigarettes. My bedroom was always a disaster. I hoarded and collected just about everything for fear of not being able to get anything new. Out of humble beginnings, ingenuity was born. Because we had no money so I was very resourceful. I found ways to do things and fix things myself. This led to a realization that learning and creating would be the ticket to me making a better life for myself.
After a long journey, I have come out on the other side with lots of wonderful experiences and have been able to accomplish many things I set out to do. This includes graduating from college, moving to LA. I have performed on some of the best stages with amazing bands. I also have made a living as an artist in fashion design and graphics. I now have a wonderful relationship after years of choosing unavailable people. My home is no longer cluttered with things I don't need and I successfully quit smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day almost 20 years ago. I am a published cookbook author and health has become an important part of my life. I currently enjoy keeping company with some wonderful people and communities. I made it through some hard times and it has made me a strong and authentic person. So, as I said, if I can do it you can do it.

Amanda regularly contributed helpful suggestions and creative ideas for our group training sessions. And she was a supportive and inspiring presence for the two of us and the other coach on our team. She possesses an unusual mix of leadership skills, original thinking, and deep compassion.

Amanda employs an interesting and helpful strategy: she says 'the plan is not the experience', meaning, we will have a better idea of the success of our offering once it is put into action. I always had confidence that Amanda was listening, intuiting, and responding to key elements for our coaching calls, and this helped me to keep moving forward. She is perceptive and direct, kind, encouraging, and can apply laser coaching to your need to identify and take your next steps in your life endeavors!
My experience in the Tasty Life Teacher training 2019, was absolutely amazing. It really brought me all the confidence that I needed to clarify and continue with my mission. But all of this wouldn´t have been possible without the coaches of the program. Here is where I met Amanda, she was always supportive, and present during the whole training. She helped me to keep on track when I need it. She is very human and comprehensive. I was very lucky to count on her during the program.
