Popular Self Help Podcast

I weave vulnerability, empathy, and a healthy dose of sass together in my popular women’s self help podcast, Audacious Freedom. I share stories from my life— often embarrassing or funny, but always raw and real— covering everything from childhood to divorce to single motherhood to dating. Not only do I reflect on my own lived experiences, but I also share what I have learned along the way.

Not your average women’s self improvement podcast

I aim to open myself up to listeners with a fearlessness and transparency that will give you both comfort and inspiration. Audacious Freedom reminds us to stop striving for perfection. Life is messy and emotional— heck, I’ve been known to drop a few f-bombs!

In a sea of inspirational podcasts, Audacious Freedom is the one you grab onto, laughing along the way as you realize you are no longer alone. So if you’ve recently found yourself up late at night, googling things like “what are the most inspirational podcasts?” or “podcast for women personal growth,” you’ve come to the right place. I’ve got you now!

Subscribe and listen to Audacious Freedom today.
