About Me

At 23, I was prepared to put my life on hold to follow a boy. Luckily for me, he dumped me on Valentine’s Day.

After wallowing for a hot second, I seized my opportunity to try everything I’d ever wanted: I signed up for and completed my first marathon, took boxing lessons, competed in Miss Virginia. I started telling myself yes.

Over the last three years, I’ve learned what it means to set and crush goals, while mastering rejection along the way. Everything you want in life is never just handed to you – it requires you to be intentional about your goals, your time, and your attitude.

Each of us is unstoppable, powerful, and capable of doing what seems impossible. The key to success – and happiness – is living your life in congruence with your core values. Through intentional goal setting and always telling yourself yes, it is possible to live the purpose-driven and dynamic life you’ve always wanted.

Quarter-Life Quarterback exists to inspire you to tackle your own quarter-life head on and to start living your life on the offensive. More importantly, it’s here to help you find your purpose, pursue your passions, write your own playbook and then execute it like a Super Bowl champion.
