breaking barriers to happiness & success


Hi! I'm Tammie


One part academic, one part tutu and tights, I am future author of If the Crown Fits and a transformational change advocate for individuals interested in breaking personal barriers to happiness and success. I provide actionable items to use in busting through ineffective patterns, turning limited thinking into an attitude of abundance, and exploring the benefits of an experimental approach to living.


The Books

I’m dreaming here, but get ready! Currently working on a novella memoir—If the Crown Fits. This will be the first in a series of three, to be followed by My Kingdom for a Prince and Who Died and Made Me Cinderella?

While I figure out what I want to do with this section, enjoy some older posts that explore the relationship between emotional and physical well-being and learn why compliments, carrots, and cartwheels have the potential to increase happiness and improve your physical health.

My Story

In the fall of 2017, I sold everything I had, packed up my Prius, and drove across country to my new home. I had no friends there, no family, and no job. I followed a dream. It was one of the best decisions of my life. (Ivory thought so, too.)


“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me….Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”

— Shel Silverstein
