I was born and raised in Western Kentucky and fell in love with theatre at a very young age. By the time I was 10 years old, I had already been the lead in 3 shows at my community theatre and could tell you an extensive history of all things Doris Day and Howard Keel. For the first 19 years of my life, I operated in a strictly artistic and protected place. I was homeschooled and was given full freedom to run the gambit with my creativity and ideas.
When I arrived at my 4-year undergraduate theatre program life hit me with a lot of curveballs and I dealt with a lot of challenges involving mental illness.
Graduating from college, dealing with adult responsibilities, taking on the professional theatre industry, and broken romantic relationships was tough; but I got through it with baby steps and faith. I learned a lot about myself and what it takes to navigate the messy and beautiful thing that is being alive.
In July of 2018, I became a JRNI certified Life Coach.
After a failed 3 year relationship I realized that I wasn’t in the practice of putting myself first, second, or even third. I wanted to take control of my life and do something that made me happy and helped others along the way.
I believe that mental health and mental wellness go hand in hand with success and deeply pure happiness.
I can’t wait to see what we can build together.
“I've been having a hard time finding the tools I need to navigate the course of my life. What's been great about working with Miki is that I feel like she has a gentle energy that allows me to feel seen and heard while still giving me the hard pushes I need to make those positive changes in my life that I know I yearn for. I still have a lot of work left, but I don't feel like that is a nuisance for her. I know she is going to be with me every step of the way.” -Wes C.
“Working with McKynleigh is by far one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. She naturally exudes joy, peace, positivity and strength and she makes you want to be a better person. Before I started working with her, I had no idea what a life coach was and I didn’t think it was beneficial for me to have one. After our first session, I quickly realized how wrong I was. My biggest issue has always been self-esteem and ever since I’ve started working with her I’ve noticed a change within myself. She’s taught me how to begin the process of learning how to truly love myself and all that I have to offer to the world. The self-hatred that once used to have a hold over my heart has slowly began to go away. I can’t begin to recommend McKynleigh enough. Working with her has changed my life in so many ways and I will be thankful for our time together for the rest of my life.” -Laquita H.
