As an empathetic listener and educator, I am passionate about providing transparent financial guidance that inspires clients to feel confident and in control throughout every stage of their individual life journey. Understanding that life-changing events often present challenges and unique questions, my financial guidance provides clarity to help them navigate difficult transitions.
My financial solutions are always tailored to client needs and objectives, considering not just money and investments but also their core values, aspirations, history, and concerns.
Having personally experienced the challenges of divorce, I understand how daunting life can feel during this difficult time. Finances are paramount and often top of mind for the majority of clients during this process and the thought of confronting their financial matters often creates paralyzing anxiety.
I have significant expertise in providing insight and financial guidance for clients experiencing divorce, widowhood, career changes and sudden wealth. My focus is to empower clients with the knowledge and support they need to feel self-assured in their financial decisions. Financial solutions are always tailored to client needs and objectives, considering not just money and investments but also their core values, aspirations, history, and concerns.
I have over a decade of experience in the financial services industry, including several years of providing education, marketing support, and analysis to hundreds of financial advisors exploring comprehensive insurance solutions to meet the needs of their clients. These financial professionals appreciated my product expertise, sharp client needs-assessment aptitude and exceptional problem-solving abilities.
I am a member of Institute of Divorce Financial Analysts and former co-director for the Women’s Divorce Resource Center (WDRC) in Oakland County. As an Advisory Board member of the SheHive women’s leadership development program, I volunteer my time educating women facing life-changing events on financial matters. After earning an MBA from Walsh College, I continue to be active in the Walsh College community.
I am the #1 fan of my two sons. When I am not engaging in their sports and activities, I enjoy the challenges of doing home improvement projects and relax by spending time each day on meditation and personal reflection.

My mission for The SheHive community is helping women to become more confident as their sexual selves by providing evidence-based education in a supportive setting. Sexual health is an important part of whole health, yet it can be a significant source of stress, insecurity, shame, and grief. I want to help women feel less pressure and more pleasure related to their bodies and their sexuality. I believe everyone has the right to experience sex and sexuality in ways that are pleasurable, consensual, and nonexploitive.

Other topics I hope to bring to the The SheHive community are recovering from the impact of loss and challenging relationships, managing the unique difficulties that arise during the middle phase of life due to peri/menopause and role-related stress, effectively handling anxiety, and tackling the obstacles that come with natural life transitions. Some tools I like to incorporate in my teaching are mindfulness, embodiment, and utilizing your personal strengths, traits, and values. Reach out to me if you have a topic suggestion for a future class. I’d love to hear from you!

I am a wellness coach founder of Balanced Leap focused on helping others remember their true potential and guiding them through sustainable steps to achieve the change they want to see in their lives.
I am a Chopra Global certified Meditation teacher and Wellness Coach, leveraging tools such as meditation, wellness practices, and mind shift exercises. My workshops and personalized coaching focus on breaking through fears, limiting beliefs and patterns that do not serve us. I believe we can train our mind to be our best ally to help us achieve the life we want. I am geek about science, research, and data but I am also a believer of what you can’t see, finding the intersection of science and faith. However, I also know that whatever YOU believe in, is what ultimately will work for you.
My goal is to help my clients take action through the balance of our body, mind and spirit. Often, we are paralyzed by fear or unidentified patterns that stop us from making the changes we want in our lives. When we pay more attention to improving these three pillars in our lives, we begin to move forward, everything “flows,” and it’s easier to take action and create change. So maybe you are curious to learn more about your infinite potential or are ready to create something spectacular. Either way, welcome to the journey.
I look forward to working with you!

Hi, I am Nicole. Introducing myself is always interesting… I have so many titles, so many hats. Most importantly I am a human first. I learned the hard way as a serial entrepreneur and parent that I had to find a way to support and empower myself if I was to be able to inspire that authenticity in others.
So I did. I did things differently and stumbled a bit. It’s in my nature. And, while the work is never done, I now live a life that isn’t making me sick and that I am not trying to run away from.
After a decade of juggling the hustle-grind-fake-it-til-you-make-it version of running a business while growing a family, I had a reckoning. I finally reached full burnout from the grind – complete with hospital visits and months of pokes and prodding – and had to reevaluate. I have spent years learning how to heal, healing, and figuring out how to navigate the ripples that I created when I started putting myself first.
Like I said, I learned the hard way.
I have now entered the season of life where I can open my wisdom up to others. I am here to support and empower others on their journey as parents and entrepreneurs who believe deeply that there is a way to live that doesn’t feel so hard.
In my experience, there are a lot of tools that can support someone going through “it.” I have worked with quite a few of them and I have my go-to’s. But, none of them is a substitute for self-inquiry and self-awareness. On that journey, I am a great mirror to what is possible as I serve as an ally and guide.

I am a personal empowerment coach. My background is in training, facilitation and public speaking. It was through own personal journey that led me to where I am today; empowering women to start prioritizing themselves. This means taking care of themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and Spiritually to live life with more ease and grace.
As a single mom working in the corporate world raising two young boys, I struggled to keep up with all the pressures of life. I finally realized after a lot heartache, pain and health issues, I had to start choosing myself. It was through all of the multiple roles I’ve been in through the years that brought me full circle to helping and serving others today.
The purpose of my work is to teach women how to tap into their inner power through personal transformation and cultivating a strong Spiritual connection. It was through my own unhealthy relationship patterns, dimming my light to please others, and soul crushing heartbreaks that led me to get the right support to gain back my power. This has allowed me to share with others what completely transformed my life through the darkest times.
My mission is to inspire, energize and empower those who aspire to reclaim their own power and create the passionate, abundant life they are worthy of. My strength is seeing the ‘light’ in others, recognizing their gifts and helping them to live a more authentic life of inner peace and joy.

I would like to introduce myself! My name is Vicky, but I am also known as the G.P.S. Death Doula. I trained with the International End-Of-Life Doula Association (INELDA) to educate myself in the non-medical role that a death doula can provide to support individuals and families in the last chapter of life. What led me to this work is my career of over 10 years as a Mobile Notary Public. During this time, I have learned how to support, facilitate, and execute the legal documents of individuals in their end stage of life, with seniors, and with their families. When time is of the essence, at the top of the list for many individuals is to finally put their affairs in order. My unique teaching skill is to be a bridge for the gap of information and knowledge that you will need to be educated in for living your adult life!
There is so much power in learning, advocating, and speaking up for yourself. So, let’s start with Adulting 101 and talk about it. You ask why you would want to take a class on the value at looking at your whole life? Well, we are often unprepared and hence suffer to learn the hard way of what is ahead once we become the legal age of 18. Knowledge is power! Learning and educating yourself brings confidence and clarity around support to who you want to be and how you want to show up in your life. You plan for your education in how to make a living. Now create a space to educate yourself on how you want to show up in living your life. It is of equal value to establishing who you are and what you want to be in all your days ahead. It is a perfect place to start, don’t you think?
The kindest thing you can do is document your wishes and desires to those who will be there supporting you. Having documents let others know how they can show up for you when you cannot speak up for yourself. Here at the SheHive, I will be teaching on topics that our society has deemed taboo. So, in my classes you will have the opportunity to learn, think, and document in the class on the topic I am teaching.
As an End-of-Life Doula, I provide non-medical support in different capacities for those actively dying, aging, or transitioning. Part of this role is also helping families navigate after the death has occurred. There are aspects of paperwork, grief and legacy that can be addressed with the support of a death doula. This reduces stress and aids in the work involved in getting everything taken care of and sorted out. Being able to provide Guidance, Planning, and Support is my passion in assisting clients in my role as a Death Doula.
