Here’s the thing about actors: no matter how personally empowered we are, we always have someone telling us what to do—the director.
But as a result of the transformation within me, I began to gain more energy and clarity on my path, and someone new ended up sitting firmly in the director’s chair, calling the shots in my life: Me!
After a year of claiming and standing in my power, everything came full circle; my character was back front and center, with a full storyline.
And I had my beloved dressing room back!
I enjoyed my role in Guiding Light for two more years, until eventually the show ran its course and went off the air.
I still act, in film, television, and theatre, and probably always will—it’s my first great love.
As well, after Guiding Light ended, I began coaching actors, supporting them in finding clarity in their motivation and feelings, knowing why they were doing what they were doing.
It gradually became obvious that what held them back most was what was going on inside, so I began teaching them about self-confidence and self-esteem.
I realized that this internal work meant much more to me than teaching anyone to hit a mark, so in 2013 I took Wayfinding Life Coach training with Dr. Martha Beck.
