Passionate About Helping Women 

My journey began as the 12th child of 14 siblings. Yes, you read that right. Yes, from the same mom and dad. Being the 12th child gave me a front row seat of every personality type possible. I watched all the communication styles. I witnessed their relationships and conflicts. I learned by watching. I helped by listening, supporting and not being judgmental. This experience has proven to be invaluable when I had to face my own pain – whether imposed or self-inflicted.

Like many of us, I've had heartbreaks, chaos and pain. My mom suddenly passed away when 

I was 15 years old. It was surreal and back then we did not pay attention to how we felt. Nor were there the resources we have available today.  At 15 years old, I had to step up to the plate and inherit my mom's duties and household responsibilities, including taking care of my two younger brothers. I have been married two times and divorced two times. I've had the material things, owned several houses and lost them. Seemingly, I had everything - but my life was missing something. 

My pain infected many of my choices and kept me imprisoned. Later in my journey, I was fed up with the pain and was committed to removing this pain. It got real when I asked myself, "should I stay in the pain I'm familiar with or unpack childhood pains and traumas and heal?" Throughout my life I have showed up for everyone else and NOW is the time to show up for myself. Side note: We cannot heal until we invest in ourselves and do the deep digging to obtain healing. So, I showed up for me and began my healing journey.

​I worked with a therapist and healing ministry to unpack childhood wounds. I learned how to forgive myself and others. With lots of humility and courage, I studied, learned myself and discovered who "Rosita" is. I realized I have always had a choice and I am very much responsible for my own healing.

​Since I've accepted me and healed, my joy comes from within. I've gained invaluable insight, I am filled with empathy, compassion to listen and passion to help women discover their beautiful self. ​Why? Because, I have been there, done that and healed from it.  I have lived and overcame my agony, my heartaches, my unworthiness and being unaware of my true self.  Now, I LIVE in a place of peace and joy.

I coach from my healed place, and I am humbled as I get to work with women from a place of compassion and authenticity. I share my story of pain and healing so women can understand their own worth, how valuable and precious they are.   

 

My vision is to walk with women - out of their pain into their purpose. So, you too can discover your true value, accept your distinct beauty and move forward to walk intentionally free every day!   

 

 My journey has been painful. AND, I am so glad I showed up for me and committed to my self-discovery. I am stronger and braver. I have discovered my purpose in life, I have found my way home and I know who Rosita is.
