LaChelle Adkins

  I am happy to provide insight to empower women to transform their mindset and overcome limiting beliefs. As a mother of 15, I believe it is important to have the ability to follow your own truth and live the life that you desire. I have overcome depression and 3 hospitalizations and I now am clear about my purpose and how to help other women be their best version of themselves.I love being a mom. For years I believed that being a good mom meant living my life on hold while raising my children. After my own struggles, I have learned to live life with my kids. This has been illustrated so clearly with the global pandemic.
