Welcome Moms, Counselors, Teachers, and Coaches…I’m glad you’re here


Do you know in your heart that your child is happiest when they have the courage and confidence to be their true self?

Do you wish they would follow their own, inner voice rather than listening to others?

Do you want your child to thrive in life, rather than merely survive or just get by?

Then you’re in the right place.

I Shine provides online learning programs, live group webinars, 1-on-1 and group coaching, and certification programs to guide you in supporting kids to build inner confidence, self-acceptance, and the courage to be their true, authentic selves so they can reach their highest potential.
