Hi there! My name is Gayla.

I am a nurse practitioner and a wellness coach. 

You shouldn’t have to spend your retirement full of regrets.

I am on a mission to help women like you get clear on what you really want in your next chapter, and feel energetic and strong, so you can move into your retirement with confidence and ease.

Mary Oliver

"What will you do with your one wild and precious life?"

You see, I know how overwhelming and frustrating it feels to have big dreams for your retirement and see nothing but roadblocks. I have been there ...

I WANTED TO RETIRE. I chose a career in healthcare because I wanted to help women like you stop unnecessary suffering and live fulfilling lives. But, over time, I felt constrained by the healthcare system. I knew there was a better way for me to serve you. 

I DREAMED OF STARTING MY OWN BUSINESS.  I wanted more time and freedom to help women like you make meaningful lifestyle changes.

So, you are heard and understood. So, you can get clear on what is keeping you from living the life you are meant to live. So, you are motivated to optimize your overall health. So you can plan your retirement confidently. 


  • I was too introverted.
  • Too anxious and insecure.
  • Too busy and distracted.
  • Too exhausted and burnt out.
  • I was too lost and bored.
THEN ONE DAY I LEARNED THE TRUTH.  I had lost track of who I was. I was focused on everyone else but me. I was hiding.

You see, I suffered with anxiety most of my life. And, my anxious thoughts were running the show. Telling me stories. And I believed them.

I didn’t have the confidence to reach for my dreams. I didn’t believe I could pull it off. I didn’t have a clear vision of what I wanted my retirement to look like.

I WENT ON A JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY. I began connecting with my authentic self and my intuition. I became more mindfully aware.

And because of that awareness, I started taking care of myself. I started consuming more nourishing foods and I felt better. I increased my activity. I spent more time understanding my anxiety and managing my stress. And as a result, my sleep improved. I felt rested and I had more energy. I stopped hiding from the world and started connecting with those around me in a deeper way

I gained the energy and confidence to start my retirement business. But, I knew I needed help. I didn't know what I didn't know! So, I hired a business coach. Studies have found that people who work with coaches are more likely to succeed. Through coaching, I received the support I needed and gained the confidence to make my dream retirement business a reality.

I retired from medicine and found my passion in coaching.  Now, instead of spending my time "living for the weekend," I spend more time "living in the moment."

I know what it's like to feel ready to retire, and want to make the most of the retirement years, but feel unsure how to move forward. 

I know what it's like to have a worry your health will stop you from reaching your dreams.

I know that the majority of what is stopping you from reaching your dreams is your mindset.  

I have experienced first hand how changing your mindset and choosing a healthier lifestyle can transform what you believe is possible for your health and your retirement years. 

I wish for you to feel well.  To feel free.  To feel hopeful.  To feel confident.

Through my personalized coaching program, Retire Your Limits,™ you will connect with your deeper authentic self,  get clear on what you want in your retirement, change your mindset, live a healthier lifestyle, optimize your health conditions and plan your bold retirement with confidence and ease. 


Which brings me to why I do what I do...

  • I am married.  I am a mama. A grandmama.  Family is very important to me. 
  • I am a full-on introvert.
  • My favorite things to do are hike or walk in nature. 
  • I also love sunsets, musicals, soap-making, gardening, traveling, biking and running. 
  • I need my alone time and I actually enjoy doing things solo. Including traveling, going out to restaurants and to movies.
  • Dachshunds and ducklings make me smile.  Every time.  I mean how cute are they?
  • When I'm wiped out I escape by watching old reruns of sitcoms and reading historical fiction.

A little about me:
