A lil' about Spencer


I took my first teaching job in Arizona after graduating from Western Michigan University in 2012. I taught 5th grade, 6th grade, and 2nd grade in the classroom before transitioning into an instructional coach role in 2015.

Fast forward to today, I am an entrepreneur & certified integrative health coach helping teachers rewrite the false narrative that tells them they must be selfless in order to be a good teacher. The truth is, we are humans who need support just like everybody else.

Teaching can easily consume us. It's a constant whirlwind of demands, changes, and massive scrutiny. I know this firsthand, as I was burned out by year three. The journey I went on to recover from burnout changed the entire course of my life and is what sparked my passion for helping teachers live their best lives. 

what i love

I love being outside, hangin with my husband and our dogs, palm trees, frothy coffee, being an aunt, anything in the sun, a cozy rainy day, and always down for a good time and a deep heart-to-heart.


Although I love to travel often and dream of one day living on an island, I believe deeply in creating a life you don't need an escape from. Empowering others to get unstuck and live their dreams lights me up. Need someone to talk you out of your head and into something life-changing? Call ya girl!
