Being a Mom is what you do.
It is not who you are.
My friend, you are SO much more.
As a midlife mom, you have spent almost the past 2 decades willingly packing lunches, carting kids to soccer practice, doing never ending loads of laundry, assembling class projects, preparing endless meals, and patching up skinned knees.
You have lovingly guided, supported, and poured yourself into your family, often leaving your own wants, needs and desires pushed to the back burner.
And now that the kids are becoming young adults and more independent you may find yourself feeling:
A little lost, with no sense of purpose
Somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of free time you have
Lonely, missing the connection with other parents and friends
Anxious anticipation of your kids leaving
A sense of grief or mourning as you transition from one major life phase to the next
Paralyzed, unsure of where to start to discover who you are
Trust me, I have been there. Some of you know what you want to do, but just don’t know how to get started. While others have no idea what you want to do, the thought of picking up that brush and making the first stroke on the blank canvas absolutely terrifies you.
That’s why I created the Pathway to Purpose 6 month Transformational Coaching program based on my own experience and training to support other moms to make this transition as painless as possible.
Based on my Live BRIGHTer pillars, my program will help you discover who you are beyond being a mom so that you can create a life you love and step confidently into your future all with the guidance and support of someone who has been there.

Hi, I’m Bridget
It may not look like it now, but I was once ‘that’ mom.
I’d planned my life out to a tee and had done everything ‘right’...or so I’d thought. I was in my mid-30s, lived in Orange County, and was blessed with two, beautiful, healthy children, a loving husband, and a great job. On the outside, we looked like any other young family in our neighborhood complete with soccer games and birthday parties.
But on the inside, I was crumbling...
As much as I loved my family, I had a hole inside that I didn’t know how to fill. I felt consumed with guilt and shame. Shouldn’t I be happy with the picture perfect life I had always thought I’d wanted, and worked so hard to get? I knew something had to change but I was terrified of what others would think.
As time went on, the whisper inside my head became a roar asking,
“Who am I?” ‘What is my purpose?” ‘Why am I here?’
I had absolutely no idea. It felt as if my inner light - already dimming - was about to be completely snuffed out.
I didn’t want to wake up one day, look at my husband and say, ‘Who are you? Where have I been for the past 20 years?’
That prospect motivated me to move through my fear and be brave. I had to figure this out. My life depended on it. I became laser-focused on discovering who I was so I could live my life with intention. Believe me, it wasn’t easy! In fact, I almost lost my marriage over it.
‘Change is hard at first, messy in the middle, and gorgeous in the end.’ -Robin Sharma
After many painful conversations, and lots of deep reflection and inquiry, the pieces started to fall back into place and my husband and I reinvented a new vision of the life we wanted to design. Together.
And you know what? It was a million times better!
I am so very grateful every day to continue to cultivate this amazing life that I love. This is my truth. As an Empowerment Coach for Moms & the Founder of Being Magenta, I use my personal experiences and training, rooted in Positive Psychology, to support women entering the empty nest stage. I work with women - just like you- seeking to discover who they are beyond being a mom, before they get to the crisis point I found myself in so many years ago.
When your light shines brighter, it’s a lot easier to see the road ahead.
It would be my absolute honor to accompany you on your journey so that you can step into this next chapter of your life with confidence and clarity and make it your best one yet!
