My purpose & passion is to help you discover who you really are.

I started Life Impact Coaching to help people discover their gifts and possibilities so they could experience a profound impact on their lives.

As a leadership and personal development coach, I am passionate about working with motivated professionals who want to have fun while experiencing their full life potential NOW.

My essence of curiosity, heart, wisdom, unity, and passion serves as the foundation from which I coach clients and stand for their dreams and goals in life.

I started coaching in 2011 to help men and women navigate their career decisions and make important financial choices to support their goals.

Working with me will help you to discover who you really are, what you really want and how to bring joy back into your relationships, work, and life.


If you’re looking for a wise, gifted, kind person to provide life coaching, you’ve come to the right place. David led me on a thought-provoking journey through deep-level questions that resulted in having a greater understanding of who I am and honing my focus on the work that really matters. I HIGHLY recommend this incredible man and coach!

My Story

I grew up a happy go lucky, fun loving kid – what I refer to as ‘Little Boy Joy’. As I got older, performance was highly valued, and I often sacrificed my fun and joy for recognition, burying myself in a lifetime of academics and working hard in my business and finance career.

‘Little boy joy’ seemed distant as I continued studying and accumulating degrees and initials after my name (BBA, MBA, CPA, and MA) in the hopes of finding a fulfilling life. It all gave me the sense of being satisfied, but the joy never quite seemed present enough.

I continuously repeated this pattern of sacrificing my joy for doses of recognition through performance. My focus was more on what I thought I should be doing and not on what I wanted to be.

Little Boy Joy Returns

Hiring a coach helped me see that I had studied and worked hard enough. I had all the knowledge and experience I needed, plus some. I left my books at home and I made the decision to retire early.

The transformation I experienced showed me that the joy and fun I gave up for work and degrees were eager to run wild. ‘Little boy joy’ returned.

Coaching helped me realize my own personal power and how mine was based on the love, passion, and wisdom that came from my heart. A heart given to me at birth and meant to be shared with others.

My passion to share transformation with others was clear, and I became a coach.

Let me show you the door to the life you want to create. My life was transformed by coaching and yours can be too!


David did a great job of helping me understand the core essence of who I am and the strengths that make me successful. His coaching approach using a self-awareness exercise included me obtaining feedback from other leaders, colleagues, family, and friends. David helped me become aware of how I am naturally positive and powerful and perceived by others as such. I also discovered opportunities where I can build on these strengths and move forward and realize my full potential.
