Thank you for visiting! I am so glad you are here.

define what matters most in your life,
align with your personal priorities, and
design how you want to live your life.
It's time for you to access your full potential so you may achieve the results and rewards you desire and live with the pleasure, joy and fulfillment that you deserve.
Let's talk about ways to take care of you and focus on what you need in your life to be your best and live the life you love! I look forward to connecting with you soon.
My professional experience includes deep experience in coaching for 10+ years. I am certified as a co-active professional coach from the Coaches Training Institute (CTI). In addition, I also am trained and certified in other programs focused on divorce and loss, mental fitness and resilience, StrengthsFinder, and career transitions. My education includes a Masters in Business Administration and a Bachelor's degree in journalism. For 21+ years at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, I learned from some of the best and brightest program creators while working on many innovative teams that delivered programs in education, entrepreneurship and personal development –- all of which were designed to help people reach their full potential. During my communications career, a favorite part of my jobs was to hire, coach and help team members develop toward their own individual goals.
Personally, I have navigated through numerous life transitions of my own. After getting married, I went through five challenging years of infertility before having my two daughters. I dealt with high-risk pregnancies before my two daughters each were born prematurely, resulting in some serious complications for both them and me. Not long after my second daughter was born, my marriage ended with an unexpected divorce -- after many years of striving together to become parents of our two daughters. I definitely did not expect that life transition! After becoming a single parent with two young girls, I raised my daughters while managing demanding jobs and caring for aging parents. When my daughters were teens, I made the decision to leave a full-time job to start my own coaching and consulting business, which was another big life change, without the predictability or steady paycheck and benefits from a full-time job. Yet, it gave me the freedom and flexibility to focus more on the parts of my life that mattered most to me.
Despite overcoming many challenges along the way, I decided to see every new 'opportunity' as a new adventure. By doing so, I found my own resilience, and the resources always showed up just as I needed them to survive several unexpected life changes and to navigate through a bumpy and unpredictable ride over several years. I'm not saying it was always easy. Over time, I moved into striving mode, and today, I'm happy to say, that I am thriving and as I continually add new aspects to live a life I love. Now that my daughters are grown, I consider myself a free birdie (rather than an empty nester), because I have the time and enthusiasm to pursue my own interests now that my daughters flying on their own!
In my early years as a single mom and working professional, I did not realize how much having my own coach -- guiding me through all I was navigating in my life -- could have helped me more effectively manage the multiple and competing priorities in my life. Once I started working with my own coaches, I made much greater and faster progress toward the living the life I wanted to be living. My coaches helped me to release my blocks and encouraged me to step to into my full potential, which has allowed me to build my business in coaching and consulting. And that's what I help those I coach do today.
For me, this part of my career is a dream come true because I know that coaching is where I can be of greatest service to others -- helping them to set a vision for their lives and careers and move through the blocks and barriers standing in their way. I love, Love, LOVE working with my clients, as they discover amazing new parts of themselves and experience life in new and exciting ways. Honestly, I have been coaching people throughout all stages of my career. Today, my days are filled with coaching others as they best express themselves, share their gifts and talents, and live a life that lights them up!
I invite you to explore coaching for your own life. Coaching is a powerful tool that can help you navigate much more quickly, easily, and less painfully through a personal, life or career change. Whether you are in a life change or simply want to become your best and most radiant self, our work together will help you discover important insights to define, align and design the life you want to be living.
If you are feeling a nudge or an urge to be more and/or bring more into your life, I would love to talk with you about ways you can grow into all you are here to be and all tht you want to bring to this world.
I would love to partner with you to light the way to the life YOU love!
To Your Radiance and Success!
