hi!

my story

I love possibilities and dreams…and love to help women discover and live theirs.

My journey hasn’t always been easy. I have experienced a miscarriage, divorce, a layoff, and a serious depression. I raised my son as a single mom working full time and managing a house. The gifts of these experiences are many! Because of the challenges, I have developed mindset, meditation, and yoga practices to fill my life with resiliency and vitality. I am a believer in the Heart with a capital H. I practice creativity almost everyday as a way to stay connected to something bigger. The dark times launched me into my truth.

20 years ago I started an adventure that would change my life. I was soul-searching and signed up for a coaching certification at the Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara. There I learned the transformative gift of listening and have been listening and asking questions ever since. I’ve put my coaching skills to practice coaching leaders in Fortune 200 companies for the last 20 years. I have dug deep into emotional intelligence, empathy, values and vision, and behavior change. I completed coursework from the Coaches Training Institute.
