What made you decide to become an RV Lifestyle Consultant?

Have you ever had that moment – a defining moment – in your life where things just changed on a dime?

Around 2011, I couldn’t get this thought out of my head:

There has to be more to life than this

I ran “Camp Melissa”, a day (and overnight) doggie daycare in my house. I would have anywhere from 5 to 25 dogs in the house at one time, not including my own three.   I rarely had a day off and I hardly ever left the house. Working 24/7 to pay the bills, keep my house, and live comfortably (whatever that meant), I truly felt like I was dying inside a little bit each day because all I did was work all day long. If I didn’t do something soon, I felt like I’d find myself at the end of a bitter, unfulfilled and wasted life. Despite loving my business and the animals in my care with all my heart, I was frustrated most of the time because I could never get away.

For 15 years I had been saying, “It would be so cool to live and travel in an RV one day.

That little dream kept growing and growing until was my only dream, ever present in my mind. I was sick and tired of doing the same thing every day, all day (weekends and holidays included) just to pay the bills.  I wanted the freedom and adventure that the RV lifestyle promised.  The problem was, I knew nothing about RVing at all – I didn’t know what kind of RV I should get, how to drive it, how to use it, how much it would cost, or even how to make money once I was in that lifestyle.  It was scary and exciting at the same time just to think about it.

Did you notice that for 15 years I kept saying, “one day“?

Well, I finally decided that “ONE DAY” was never going to come unless I made it, so I started the process of figuring out how to achieve my dream of living and traveling in an RV.

I believed that I could achieve that goal, because when I looked back at my life I had achieved other things – like becoming a professional jockey and buying my own house.  “How hard can it be?” I thought.

Famous. Last. Words.

What ensued was well over 2 years of research, including online research, traveling to RV shows, visiting RV dealerships, and contacting people who owned RVs.  There is a maddening amount of information out there and much of it is downright contradictory.  I had to wade through piles of websites, brochures, and other information – and it made my head swim.  I didn’t have any friends that lived in an RV, and I had no one to ask if I was making the right decisions or not. But I kept plowing along.

It’s a HUGE step going from living an ‘ordinary’ life in a house to living in an RV, there’s a big learning curve for sure.

But finally in 2014 I bought my dream RV (the one that at first I thought I could never afford, but that’s another story), and in 2015, I sold my house and drove off with all of my remaining possessions in my RV.  I cried so hard – tears of joy, sorrow, uncertainty and anticipation.

I made my dream come true!!!!


And since that time, I’ve talked to many other people who want to live a life of freedom and adventure in an RV, but they’re facing many of the same problems that I was:

  • Don’t know where to start
  • Not sure which type of RV to buy
  • Don’t have a clue how to use it
  • Don’t know how to make money while traveling
  • Getting overwhelmed by the massive amount of information
  • Not knowing which options to choose from the thousands available
  • Scared, excited and confused at the same time
  • No one to talk to to help them make the right choices
  • and so much more

And that’s why I decided to become an RV Lifestyle Consultant.

I know what that learning curve is like, and I don’t want it to take you or anybody else, 2 years or more like it did for me.  I’ve made some good choices and I’ve made some bad, and I learn more every day. 

I want to help you save time, money, and mistakes by guiding you through the process, so I’ve created my “Journey to Your RV Dream” program to get you to Your RV Dream Life.  

I’m now living my dream of freedom and adventure in an RV, and I’ve made it my mission to help others achieve that lifestyle with less hassle, in less time, with less money, and with fewer costly mistakes than they would have made on their own.

Who do you work with?

I work with people just like you who are seeking a life of freedom and adventure in an RV.  Who want to be able to follow their dreams of travel, excitement, adventure, and exploration.  People who don’t want to fit into the “mold of ordinary” any more.

If you’re tired of doing the same thing day in and day out, living an ordinary life, and dreaming of “One Day” living the lifestyle you want in an RV – you’re in the right place! 

This was my first winter in Florida as a full-time RVer, true excitement at having made my dream come true!

Unfortunately though, most people (unless they’ve had RVs for years) are not sure exactly where to start or what to do to achieve that life of freedom and adventure in an RV.  They may not think it’s even possible, but I can assure you it is.

There is no specific demographic, age, income-bracket, or social group that Freedom RVers fit into – but they all have certain things in common:

  • They crave freedom and adventure!
  • They are ready to take action!
  • They have a desire to live a passionate life,
  • They want to discover and live their dream life,
  • They feel unfulfilled with their current life or circumstances,
  • They’re tired of the same old thing day in and day out,
  • They have the thought, “There has to be more to life than this”,
  • They know that their health and spirituality are suffering as a result of not living the life they really want,
  • They love to travel and explore,
  • But most importantly – they have an RV Dream!

What makes you different from other coaches and RV specialists?

Although I will occasionally touch upon law of attraction, goal setting, and other “coach-y” things, you have me as your personal ‘’RV Lifestyle Consultant’.  Your idea of your RV Dream is going to be unique to you, so I’ll work with you one-on-one to help you discover exactly what that lifestyle looks like for you.  We’ll look at all the options available and I’ll be right there to help you make the choices that are right for you. I know the uncertainty of going it alone, and I want to help keep you from making costly mistakes.

I’m concerned with how to get you to your RV dream lifestyle.  I’m not going to fill you with useless fluff and be just a ‘Cheerleader’. Sometimes you may not like what I have to tell you – but honesty and integrity mean everything to me – you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth (as I see it), about what’s holding you back, what you need to do, and how to overcome obstacles in the path to your RV dream.

I will stand with you and teach, support, motivate, inspire, and encourage you to reach your RV dream.

Who is this program for and what is expected of me?

The Journey to Your RV Dream Program  was created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about achieving their RV Dream – it means not continuing to say “one day”, but actually starting on the path to achieving your dream. This program was created for you to put systems in place within a few months, which will eventually lead you to getting clear on your dream RV lifestyle, overcoming the obstacles that are holding you back, knowing exactly what actions you need to take, and finally realizing and living your RV dream life.

Being an RV dreamer myself, I work best with other dreamers, freedom-seekers, and RVers – people who are committed to their dream no matter what – who are super-ready to get going and just want to know what steps to take to live the life they want. Consider what you’ll be doing with me to be a high-octane crash course on the most important steps you need to know to achieve your RV dream. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking, and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: living Your RV Dream.

Who is this program NOT for?

Please know that I want to make sure everyone gets the most out of this program.  The Journey To Your RV Dream Program  is NOT for those who won’t take action to achieve the dream they’re looking for.  The process is simple and straight-forward, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy-peasy.  If you don’t have the RV lifestyle of your dreams right now maybe it’s because you haven’t had the support, the plan, the motivation, or the inspiration you need to have in order to achieve it.  You will get these things in this program, but you will have to do your part.  I’ll hold you accountable, but I can’t MAKE you do anything.  If you’re ready to take action now, I’m ready to help you achieve your RV dream.  If you’re not, that’s absolutely okay, you’re just not ready yet. We’ve all been there, and when you’re ready you’ll know it. For now, you can do these few things:

  1.  Start thinking about what your RV dream lifestyle would look like.  What will you be doing?  How much income will you be making? Where will you go?  Who will be with you? How will your life be different than it is right now?  How happy will you be?  Once you start seeing the possibilities of your RV dream lifestyle you’ll get excited, inspired, and ready to take action.

2.  Subscribe to my YouTube Channel HERE. These short, free videos will help give you an idea of the RV lifestyle.

3.  Make a point to read the helpful emails I send out. The emails come out about once a week and have helpful hints and tips to give you LOTS to think about.  They’ll help you get started until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one.

4.  Join our Facebook community of like-minded RV-dreamers here – Your RV Dream Facebook Group.  Ask questions, get tips, and share in the journeys of others who seek and live the RV lifestyle.  You’ll know that you’re not alone on your journey!

Doing these few things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.)  

What exactly is the Journey To Your RV Program and what does it include?

Living the RV Dream Lifestyle begins with understanding the exact Why, How, What, When, and Where of your RV dream.

We’ll first get clarity, then come up with a specific plan to follow.  There will be research involved, and some soul searching to do. You’ll learn how to make the right decisions for you, overcome obstacles in your way, figure out just how you will make this exciting new lifestyle work the way you want it to, and you’ll plan the exact steps to take to get you living your dream.

Think of achieving Your RV Dream as an actual journey in an RV, one that starts where you are now to your final destination of living your dream.

Here’s what the System helps you with:

  1. Where to Start on Your Journey (Achieve Clarity of Your Dream)

We take a deep look at what you truly want and why you want it.  We get CRYSTAL clear on your intentions and what your RV dream life looks like.  We’ll take into considerations your budget, lifestyle desires, dreams, strengths, and weaknesses to get a really clear picture of the dream life that you want to have.

  1. Resources (What you will need to make your RV dream a reality)

This is where we make a list of everything you’ll need to reach your dream, including personal development and material things.  We’ll be digging deep into who you are and where you are right now in your life, because it’s not just a snap to make a dream come true – you have to be ready to tackle that big goal mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  But as a result you’ll grow as a person too. So, in order to be able to reach the Destination of the Journey To Your RV Dream, we have to know where you’ll be starting.

  1. Create a Roadmap (Your plan of action)

We’ll create an action plan (a ‘roadmap’) that leads you to your RV dream, one that you’ll feel good about following! We’ll identify where you need to start, where you want to end up, and exactly what steps you’ll need to take to get you where you want to be.

  1. Put It In Drive (Start moving and taking action)

You must get moving and take action to achieve your goals!  We’ll set concrete, realistic actions for you to take that will get you the results you desire and move you closer to your dream.  You’ll learn strategies for managing your time, taking the necessary actions, and moving closer to your dream.

  1. Overcoming Roadblocks (Obstacles in your way)

As you take actions and start on your RV dream, you’ll more than likely encounter obstacles.  You’ll discover how to recognize these obstacles and see them for what they really are – just roadblocks in your way.  You’ll discover how to find ways around these roadblocks so you can continue to move forward.  Nothing can stop you now!

  1. Course Correction (Evaluate & adjust)

As you progress along your journey towards freedom it will be necessary to evaluate and adjust your plan.  This is just like following a real roadmap in an RV, if the bridge is too low, you’ll have to go around (course correction), but now you must recalculate your course!  Continual evaluation, adjustment, and course correction guarantees that you will keep your most important goals in focus and stay on track to achieve them.

  1. Rest Stops & Celebrations! (Rest & refresh)

If you go full speed and never stop you’ll burn out, get tired or become overwhelmed, so we make sure to take time to rest and celebrate your achievements!  Once again, just like a journey in an RV – you can’t drive all day! But the more you drive that big rig, the more your confidence will sky-rocket! As you consistently take actions and achieve goal after goal, and you’ll know that every step has been worth taking.  As you progress toward your RV dream, you will grow and expand personally, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally and reap the rewards that a satisfying and fulfilled lifestyle of dreams has to offer.

Does this really work?

Yes!  I have helped many people with their RV dream, and I can help you too!  When you work with me you’ll have someone to guide, support and help you through what can be a confusing and overwhelming process of figuring out how to live your RV dream.  You’ll get real advice from someone who’s been through the planning stages, taken the steps, and is actually living that lifestyle right now.  I also have experience as a Freedom Life Coach, so I’ll not only help you with the RV choices, but I’ll be able to help you through the emotional side of the process as well.

Here are some testimonials of people I’ve helped…

Working with you has been one of the best things I’ve done in my life!  You have helped me open and expand myself to possibilities I never knew where available to me. Thank you.


I was very moved by your sincerity and unusual openness. I can tell you are a genuinely caring person not just in this for yourself, even offering non-RV counsel and encouragement to us.


Am so moved by your openness most of all your genuine desire to help others achieve their RV Dreams and more. What a huge blessing you are indeed for those who continue to seek your counsel to reach their goal, the freedom and happiness of RV life brings.


While the RV life has been in the back of my mind for many years, it’s now beginning to look like real possibility.  Thanks for being willing to share this part of your life with people.

What results can I expect?

Here’s what you can accomplish:


  • Know what type of RV you should get (if you don’t have one already)
  • Understand what the RV lifestyle is really like
  • Figure out how you will make money as you travel
  • Learn the ways to save lots of money!
  • Keep from making ‘newbie’ mistakes
  • Learn how to set goals and take consistent action
  • Find out how to plan your travel
  • Overcome the obstacles keeping you from your dream
  • Become confident in your ability to live this lifestyle
  • Get rid of the fear of uncertainty
  • Live the life you’ve dreamed of 
  • Travel, explore and experience as you live life to the fullest

How quickly can I expect results?

That depends on how dedicated you are and how quickly you can start taking action. Some clients are ready to live their RV dream in a very short time frame (sometimes even a few weeks), while others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on your situation and how quickly you can implement the actions you need to take. You don’t have to rush through the steps if the timing isn’t right, but once you learn the Journey To Your RV Dream process, you’ll be able to reach your dream quickly or in your own good time.

How can I be sure that I will achieve my RV dream?

I’d love to, but I can’t guarantee anything, because the work to do is yours (I’ll inspire you, give you information, help you, guide you, and support you, but I can’t make you do anything).  If you’re totally committed to your success, I believe that you can achieve your goals. Understand that this is a process that works if you commit yourself, take action and implement the steps. If you diligently apply the Journey To Your RV Dream Program, you will reach your dream in much less time than you would have on your own, and you’ll save money, time, effort, and avoid mistakes – this I can guarantee!

Why should I join this program now and how will this program actually help me save money?

I understand, it can be a little scary to invest in yourself.  I’ve gone the ‘Lone Wolf’ route before and I know it’s not easy, it takes longer and it’s much more difficult. I’ve learned (the hard way) that here is no substitute for an experienced, knowledgeable and caring person to help guide you along the way.  The only times I’ve ever made fast, kick-ass results have been with a good coach!

  1. Let me ask you a few questions:  How long have you had your RV dream? 
  2. Are you tired of waiting for “One Day”?  
  3. How do you feel now vs. how will you feel when you’re living a life you love? Which feeling do you prefer?
  4. What have you done so far to pursue your dream?  Visit RV shows, follow RVers online?
  5. If you have to live anyway, wouldn’t you rather do something you love?
  6. Do you know the many ways to save money on the purchase of an RV and living in an RV?  Would you like to learn from someone who knows?
  7. What are you going to do about your future, stay where you are OR live the life of your dreams?

Think about how your life will be so much more fulfilling when you’re living your RV dream. 

Know that you are worth the investment in your own happiness.  Know that this program will probably save you more money than you invest (and save you time and mistakes too!).
