Caroline has lived in South Florida for the past 3 years and has always loved working with children. She has a varied background in fields such as the military, business and administration. She received a Master’s Degree in Metaphysical Humanistic Science in 2017.
For Caroline, joining Extreme Velocity Martial Arts as the After School Director has brought the dream of working with children to life. As a Declutter Coach/Life Coach, her studies have included the belief systems we learn as children and how our habits and behaviors are affected by these beliefs when we become adults. She has a unique, compassionate approach with the students and has created many different programs for them to grow and monitor individual progress and achievements.
The unconditional love she has for children shows up in how she guides them. Caroline brings a positive dynamic to Extreme Velocity that blends well with the teachings of marital arts. With her background in the military, she fuses discipline, respect, and belief in themselves, self-empowerment and self-love, in showing children how to make good choices.
Caroline has been working on her own personal development through research and courses for over 25 years which led her to combine her gifts and skills into a cohesive program that guides and assists others in working through anxiety, overwhelm and breaking through unconscious belief system in her work through decluttering.
She has two children, ages 29 and 23 and volunteered as a grief facilitator at Tomorrow’s Rainbow, where they incorporate miniature horse interactions and therapeutic play for children who have experienced a loved one passing away.
