Hi! I’m Candy...

just a girl from a tiny town in Pennsylvania with a big heart, big vision, and a massive mission.

At 15, I began my journey of personal development and mindset growth. I studied every author, leader and psychologist by reading every book and listening to every cassette tape (remember those! LOL) I could get my hands on. I dove into positive psychology, peak performance, success habits, universal laws and studied mentors who paved the trail.


I started my first business right out of high school. Since then, I have spent the past two decades as an entrepreneur. I have built several diverse businesses from the ground up but one of my proudest accomplishments thus far is creating my foundation, Animal Friends Sanctuary.

When I was 26, I thought I had it all. I had beaten the odds. I pulled myself out of poverty, overcome my past abuse refusing to be a victim or a statistic. I worked hard accomplishing all the goals I set out to achieve yet something was missing. From the outside I had it all, the shoes, the cars, the successful business, yet I felt empty.  Have you ever felt that way before? 


Legacy. Contribution.
That's why we're here.

Every single one of us has a purpose as to why we are here. As I continued along my path, I knew I was going to help others and wanted to make a difference. What I didn’t know is that as I saved all of these abused, abandoned and neglected animals; I was going to find myself and heal my own heart in the process. 

Over the years, I have had people reach out to me and ask for help on various topics -- business advice, how to scale their business, ways to improve their non-profit.  A coaching and consulting business was organically created. 

Helping someone shorten their path to success, finding their purpose or saving them time and money is rewarding.  When we can help people be with their family more, be of service to others more or contribute to the world in a greater way, then it is time well served.

I help people know that we are not defined by our past and we can choose to create the life we always imagined. I help people step into their worth and unleash the calling within their soul while creating a life of abundance, wealth and contribution.

Have you reached some of your goals and had success but don’t feel fulfilled? Do you feel like there has to be something more or another level for you? Have you ever felt restlessness or fallen into distraction? Believe me, I’ve been there.

The things that stand in our way from the life we have, to the life of our dreams, are all things we can shift -- mindset, beliefs and defining actionable steps that move the needle. 


I invite you to drop the chains of fear and step into the possibility that life is NOT happening to you, it’s happening FOR you.  If you aren’t quite sure where to begin, it’s ok! You’ve come by for a reason.
