87% of students have experienced stress during their college years
Hi, I'm Annie
My mission is to help women overcome stress, anxiety & overwhelm.
I grew up in NJ and now live in CA. I moved across country by myself, leaving behind all of my family and friends. I was willing to get out of my comfort zone so I could live my dream life.
I earned my Bachelor's in Psychology, with a minor in Sociology and my Master's in Integrative Wellness Coaching.
I am also certified in the following:
- Integrative Wellness Coaching
- Life & Success Coaching
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming
- Time Technique Practitioner
- Clinical Hypnotherapist
- Emotional Freedom Techniques Practitioner

It’s worth mentioning that I DO NOT care about social media. I don’t use platforms such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. I only use Pinterest, LinkedIn and YouTube. I don’t care about likes, comments or the amount of followers.
If you’re looking for a social media star, look elsewhere. I am not here to impress you with my Gucci belt or Fendi scarf – I am here to assist you in YOUR journey.
Why do I coach college students?
My academic journey started in 2010 when I began earning my associate's degree. Flash forward to 2020 and I now have my masters.
I remember when I first started earning my degrees I would spend most of my time feeling mentally exhausted from having to work and be a student at the same time. I had a hard time juggling my responsibilities. I was always dreading doing my school assignments - I spent more time worrying about them than I spent working on them. I felt overwhelmed, stressed and anxious from the moment I woke up to the moment I went to bed.
When I looked around at my classmates, I found they were struggling just as much as I was. I wanted to know what I could do to stop feeling like this, and how I could help other students do the same. I decided to eat, sleep and breathe the topic of self development. I didn’t want to just survive, I wanted to thrive.
I studied every single day. I started listening to people who taught subjects like goal setting, planning, motivation, resilience, stress management and mental health. I read every book I could get my hands on and read every blog I could find on the topics. I started following coaches and then coaching myself. I made small, and then big lifestyle changes so that I could earn my degrees AND live my best life.
I was so interested in the topic of stress and anxiety that I even wrote my master’s capstone project on it: Health Coaching as an Effective Tool for Managing Stress & Anxiety. As you may have already figured out, my research proved that health coaching IS an effective tool for managing stress and anxiety.
Fortunately for me (and now for you), I learned many techniques along the way to allow me to survive and then thrive in college. Learning these techniques helped me work up to 4 jobs at a time while earning my undergrad degree, and then working full-time while earning my masters and running my business. I can’t say it’s been a pretty journey - but I definitely prevailed in the end.
Aside from being a student, I also worked in higher education. While attending community college I worked as a student worker in the president’s office. Then, for over the past 2½ years while earning my master’s degree, I worked as an Admissions Counselor. Working in the field really helped me understand the in's and out's of higher ed.
Now that I have the experience, education and skills to teach the topic, I am here to share that knowledge, coach you along the way, and help you have a stress-free semester.
