Our Love Intentionally couples guide has been created with intention since our first retreat back when we were engaged. We've got big dreams, lofty goals, and a right mind to create our most amazing life together. And, that takes work, focus, and a plan amidst the hustle and bustle of life, careers, and 3 kids + a big fluffy Bernewfie named Mozey. Angela is the planner and counselor, James is the strategist and visionary. Together we are better than the sum of our parts and we are excited to help plant this seed of expansive love in your most cherished relationship. We've been married since 2011...and still got it.
We fell in love at first night. It was a snowy night in November of 2009. Out for a romantic walk in the fresh snow, James fell for Angela the moment she fell into the snow to make a snow angel. She told him she loved him the next month (much to his joy) and it was clear we were meant for each other. We got hitched in July of 2011. We had an "insta-family" with Angela's bio, and James' bonus son, Sorin. Since then we've had 2 daughters together, Brooklyn and Jocie. We love spending time together in the Colorado outdoors, adventuring to foreign lands, and having fun with our families and framily.
I was born in Hamilton, OH and raised in Concord, NC. I majored in Sociology with a minor in Women and Gender Studies at North Carolina State University. After college, I moved to Telluride, CO where I worked at the San Miguel Resource Center, providing crisis counseling for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence and teaching violence prevention education in three local school districts. From there, I moved to Fort Collins in 2007 to pursue a Master’s in Counseling and Career Development at Colorado State University. As James likes to say, “I was the valedictorian of everything.” I am now a recovering over-achiever and James is an excellent balance to my perfectionist tendencies. Since 2009 I have been a school counselor in Poudre School District, working with children, families, and teachers to help equip kids with the skills they need to thrive. As an extrovert, I love being around people…little and grown. I love being outdoors, listening to music (especially when James plays for me), dancing, reading, exercising, traveling, and eating/cooking yummy, healthy food.
I'm from Houston, Texas, which is a great place to be from. I came to Fort Collins for college at Colorado State and have yet to leave this fine town. I've been a real estate entrepreneur since graduation doing brokerage, investing, and starting a home solar consulting company. Now I spend my time coaching with Love Intentionally and Ninja Selling to help others live life at a 10 out of 10. At each step of this path I've been fortunate to have great coaching and mentors that valued personal growth, the power of the mind, and integrating those tools in order to live my highest and best life. It's from this highest and best self that I show up for my marriage.
