Becoming a mom and a wife at a very young age forced me into a life I wasn't quite ready for. With the drive to want to be the best version of myself I started my first business at 22 years old. Over the next 4 years, I had another child, got divorced and lost my business. I was able to start a new business in a different location where I continued my education and developed my skills in becoming a life coach through Equine Assisted Learning.
During the next 8 years, I met my husband which brought on 3 more children, 2 from his previous marriage and 1 we had together, to bring the total to 5 children. We also discovered obstacle course racing, which led to us opening an outdoor obstacle based personal development gym where I am now a fitness and life coach.
After 3 years of opening Derti Development, our family home burned down, but we were able to rebuild while keeping the business going. Without any of these circumstances, I wouldn't have gained the knowledge and experience as a woman, mom, wife, and multiple business owner that I have over the years, all while maintaining a positive outlook and goal driven mindset.
