My mission is to help busy individuals like you find their own version of balance and rock it!

 

Let's get real for a moment. I used to be a workaholic, grinding away 80-100 hours a week, totally forgetting about my own well-being. But in 2012, a health crisis forced me to hit the brakes and reassess everything. It took me over 10 years to heal from that toxic lifestyle, but boy, did I learn a thing or two about balance!

In 2022, fueled by my own experience, I set out to create Build The Balance, where I empower individuals to break free from being human doings and embrace their status as human beings. Armed with nearly 20 years of experience in marketing, advertising, design, consulting, and coaching, I bring a unique blend of expertise.

I've got a stellar team of problem-solving pros who are as dedicated as I am to help you create lasting change. Doctors, professors, accountants, non-profit organizations, and families - I've worked with them all!  Now, let's debunk the myth that balance is an abstract idea. It's not. It's about practical stuff like productivity, systems, self-care, and aligning your life with what truly matters to you. I'm here to challenge the constant hustle culture and remind you that creating balance is a form of self-care in itself.

After spending four years as a Mechanical Engineer, I was feeling stuck in a cycle of stress, drowning at work. Bringing in some self-awareness, I began to pay attention to myself and the person behind the job. From a birds-eye view, I watched myself repeat the same patterns, feeling the same way each day. I decided to take time to evaluate what I was doing and how I felt; I needed to change. Little did I know, I was beginning my journey to balance then, and it was during this shift that I crossed paths with Aleisha.

As the Systems and Process Coordinator at Build the Balance, I utilize my organizational skills and ability to grasp complex problems. My ability to listen and see people where they’re at allows me to offer reflective and comprehensive solutions. I’m committed to supporting you in your development. I've always had a vision of helping people, and this is a great way to do that. I look forward to the opportunity to help you develop a sustainable balance both personally and professionally.

I'm thrilled to be a part of the Build the Balance (BTB) team, joining in phase three of my life journey. After serving 24 years in the military, I retired as a veteran. But that wasn't the end of my story. I pursued my passion by earning a Master's in Social Work and diving into helping at-risk individuals, especially children and young adults. On top of that, I've been a Foster parent for an incredible 22 years, specializing in adolescent girls and teen moms.

Now, here's the plot twist. A few years back, I had an epiphany about the importance of balance. Juggling all my responsibilities, I realized I needed better strategies to get things done without sacrificing one thing for another. Procrastination wasn't cutting it for my productivity. So, I drew upon my extensive career and life experiences to create new systems and tools for myself.

When my amazing daughter, Aleisha, invited me to join the BTB Team, I knew I had found my calling in planning and development. After all, balance starts with effective planning. Now, I use all my handy tools to help our team and clients conquer their weekly tasks, discover fresh solutions, and set realistic expectations for success.

Hi there, I'm Rhiannon, a recent college graduate who believes in the power of self-care as a cornerstone for caring for others. Dance has been my sanctuary, where I blend movement and mindfulness to find solace and rejuvenate my spirit.

 

Alongside my passion for dance, I'm an enthusiastic traveler, constantly seeking adventure and enlightenment through immersion in diverse cultures and forging connections worldwide.

 

To me, balance is being able to take care of the necessary and important things in life while at the same time creating space in your life for the things that bring you peace and happiness. I am constantly learning new things from my surroundings and people around me, while also being organized and attention detailed. In simple terms, I'm all about finding the right groove between discovering myself and helping others.

In the early stages of my career, I grappled with the tendency to overachieve and people-please, often struggling to balance my professional aspirations with my personal well-being. After exploring a few different career paths, I've learned that achieving balance is easier when you love what you do. For me, that love has always been writing and storytelling. 

 

With a background in communications strategy across diverse sectors, including higher education, finance, public relations, and the arts, I've honed my skills in developing brand voices and messaging for various clients and organizations. Alongside my day job, I moonlight as a screenwriter, which has further deepened my understanding of the power of dialogue. In that spirit, I'm here to assist you in crafting a meaningful dialogue with your target audience, whether through web copy, email marketing, social media, or other channels. My goal is to help you tell the story of your brand, business, or mission in a way that sounds and feels true to you. 

 

I'm so grateful to work alongside Aleisha and the wonderful team at Build The Balance, and I look forward to learning about you and your story!
