I’m a certified IPEC Life Coach, published author, and a highly passionate human being.
After years of molding myself into who others wanted me to be and prioritizing everyone else's happiness above my own, it led me to some of the most toxic relationships I had ever been in. Not only was I my own biggest critic, I latched onto people who also didn’t make me feel seen, loved, and worthy.
I decided my happiness mattered because I didn't want to continue the same cycle of being afraid to show the real me, hating who I had become, and attracting relationships that were never equal. So I embarked on a much needed self-love journey and transformed how I felt about myself and my relationships.
I became a Coach in 2017 because I believe LGBTQ+ adults don’t have to do this alone. As a recovering over-thinker, I help our students turn down their ‘head’ and turn up their ‘heart.’
I'm a certified EFT practitioner, life coach and your biggest hype woman.
After experiencing years of religious trauma, I found myself trying to heal through multiple codependent relationships, and people pleasing.
It wasn’t until I met Dani that I realized my attempt at healing was only making my view of self-worth worse. By unlearning how I once viewed myself and recognizing how to make my actual wants and needs a priority, I could step into my most authentic self. And even found a healthy relationship with the one who sparked that journey in me — Dani.
From my Management experience to playing semi-professional soccer, everything I’ve done in my life has been about bringing people together.
My own experience with stepping into my most authentic self combined with my relentless passion to bring out the best in others can show anyone anywhere that the impossible… isn’t so impossible anymore.
Between Dani’s patience, persistence, and passion, and Keely’s enthusiasm, experience, and empathy, we are an unmatched duo in the LGBTQ+ Life Coaching industry. And our Signature Program Pride Amplified™ reflects that.

As Life Coaches, we’ve helped hundreds of clients live freely, love fully, and impact greatly. And we’re committed to helping even more.
After years of struggling with her identity, confidence and relationships, Dani was inspired to become a certified life coach in 2017. She also published her first book “Coming Out Happy”, also in 2017 to share her story of how you can live freely in your identity by connecting with your truest self. She wanted to help people under 25 know they were not alone and they have the power to create the life they want. After doing that for a few years, she took a break to focus on herself again and moved to California where she met her girlfriend Keely and took a job as a management assistant in 2019.
As Dani was working in her corporate job, she kept being pulled at the idea of wanting to help LGBTQ people again. Every day as she worked in her job, she was secretly listening to podcasts from entrepreneurs who created a big impact on the world through their work. It fired her up to learn how she could bring back her passion of helping LGBTQ+ people see the potential in their life and relationships. As she was learning, she stumbled across an entrepreneur talking about the “membership model” and how you can make an impact in a big way through running your business like this. She felt called to the bigger picture of getting back into coaching and continued to learn more and more about creating a membership- although she didn't know exactly what it would look like.
As she was diving into reinspired work, the pandemic hit in march of 2020 and her corporate office told her to work from home. She took her computer with her and began working each day, computers side by side- figuring out how she wanted to create this business while still working her 9-5 job.
As a previous entrepreneur, she was always coming up with new ways of promoting "loving who you are" through everything you do. As masks were starting to be a part of our everyday lives, she wanted to bring in her flare of being LGBTQ+ with what was going on in the world. So, as she was still figuring out her membership, along with working her other job, she decided to find a manufacturer that would help her make rainbow masks.
This was also when Tik Tok started to get big... so in March of 2020, her girlfriend Keely started to promote these masks by wearing them on Tik Tok...and they blew up. Order after order, Dani had to package hundreds of masks and goodies thanks to the power of Tik Tok.
Dani had to go back to the office and could not fulfill all of the orders that were being placed each day. This is when Keely started to step in and ship out the orders for Dani. Keely was able to do this because she had a remote job and did it during her lunch break.
As the days went by and more masks were shipped out Dani had an instant urge to quit her job so she could focus on creating the membership she had been learning about. She told Keely her plans and she was very supportive. Keely had a stable income and wanted Dani to live our her dreams and was her biggest fan. Dani put in her two weeks notice and officially left on April 9th, 2020.
She was very nervous because what she was about to create was still unclear but she knew she had to figure it out. Keely was also unclear what it was that she would be doing but she knew she wanted to help Dani in any way that she could. After meeting Dani for lunch on her last day, she could feel the nerves and stress to make this work. It felt like it was her last chance at creating a sustainable and impactful business that would forever change the way the LGBTQ+ community were supported.
Keely rushed home after lunch and had the idea to make a Tik Tok to redirect people to the new Instagram account. She shared about what Dani was trying to accomplish and how it would help LGBTQ+ people. She then asked those who wanted to support to follow along on Instagram. After Keely posted this TikTok, thousands of LGBT people fled to Instagram to show their support and got on the waitlist for the membership that was being created.
Dani came home that day not knowing she had created a Tik Tok that was being seen by thousands of people and very confused how it was all happening. When Keely told her, she felt a fire within her to begin working very hard.
Instead of the membership idea they originally envisioned, they created higher level coaching program that was more in depth into how LGBTQ+ adults could understand, accept and love who they are so they can create the life and relationships they’ve always wanted. In February 2021, they launched their first group program “Pride Amplified”. Within days of opening, they had a few people join and start to experience the high level transformation they wanted to provide. Keely and Dani knew this was exactly how they wanted to make their true impact in the world.
Since then, many people have completed the Pride Amplified 6 month program and have experienced major shifts in the person they are and who they want to become. They've seen people figure out what their identity means to them, feel confident enough to start a new business/job, create relationships they always dreamed of having, use their voice to stand up for what they believe and even pick up where they were living to venture into a new chapter.
They are so passionate about what they do in Pride Amplified and can’t wait to continue to expand even further as they hire a team, write books, hold speaking events and host retreats all around the world.
