I'm a travel-loving optimist, that follows my gut, values experiences over things, and can’t function without coffee.
I love to bury my nose in a good book (historical fiction or personal development are my personal faves), hop in my car to go exploring on the weekends, and pour my soul out onto the pages of my journal.
I work with high-achieving Gen X women who are craving more from their lives. Despite having succeeded at everything they set out to do, they're not happy. They need something more fulfilling and they want to feel alive again.
I've Been in Your Shoes
I've felt stuck, unfulfilled, confused, unclear on what path to take, frustrated with my inability to get out of my own way, and craving more...
More meaning, more adventure, more connection, more fulfillment, more love, more time, and more clarity.
I didn't know where to find any of what I was craving, which just made me more frustrated and hopeless.
Then one day, I realized I’d had enough. I didn’t want to spend the next 40+ years of my life feeling life this! I realized I needed to find myself and figure out who I was.
I needed something outside of my career to fulfill me.
I knew it was time for me to roll up my sleeves and do the work.
I buried myself in personal growth books, blogs, websites, etc. I hired a coach and eventually applied and attended coaching school myself (where you get LOTS of coaching during the process!).
Coaching changed my life.
It opened me to new ways of thinking and new paths I didn't know I wanted (needed!) to travel. It helped me figure out where and how I was repeatedly blocking myself so I could start to get out of my way (and some things I'm still working on...we're all a work in progress).
This stuff works…and I can help you get there, too.
I want to work with you
My passion is to work with women just like you
I've been on your journey and while our journeys are always unique to ourselves, I understand what you're feeling. As a fellow high achieving Gen X woman, I've walked a path similar to yours and I get it.
Here's what I want for you...
I want you to be seen.
I want you to feel understood.
I want you to feel accepted.
I hold that space for you and this allows you to come alive in your own skin. I want to see you emerge from behind your 'work' personality and show the world who you really are.
You are already her.
You just need the right space to let her come out and play. I love to help women meet that woman. She's in there...are you going to set her free?
NOW FOR THE SUPER TECHNICAL MUMBO JUMBO...
Yeah, yeah, yeah…that’s great that I’ve lived through what you are likely currently experiencing (or at least something similar), but seriously…what makes me qualified to help you?
While I'm building my coaching business, I am also a product manager at a financial software company. I lead a global team of product developers and we live and breathe by goals, so you could say I know a thing or two about how to set goals, how to stick goals, and how to achieve goals. I can teach you a thing or two about how to set your own goals and make them happen. Not to mention that little bit about juggling a full time job + running my own business on the side.
My formal coaching training was through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), an ICF accredited program. I'm a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) as well as a certified Energy Leadership Master Practitioner (which is a fancy way of saying that I can help you see how you're showing up in your life and work with you to upgrade your perspective, reactions, and interactions with others).
I'm also a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the global organization that sets the standards for the coaching industry, provides certification, and advances the coaching profession through the connection of trained coaching professionals.
So, you could say I‘m not just hanging up a sign and calling myself a life coach. I know what I’m doing and I have the training and the skills to back it up.
