Fast forward nearly a decade.
Now, as a Professional Certified Coach, I serve high achieving leaders at all stages of their leadership journey, from emerging leaders through C-Suite executives. What I've learned over nearly 10 years as an executive coach and life coach to high achievers is that the leadership is a calling and a choice. It's not a title. And the most effective leaders operate on a full tank, rather than trying to make a meaningful impact when they are depleted or burned out.
You want to make a difference AND create a well-rounded, deeply satisfying life, yet sometimes you feel like it's all you can do just to hold it all together. You crave the kinds of conversations that would actually support you in making the kind of impact you're capable of: highly intuitive, deeply authentic, no bullshit, and consistently relating to you as your highest and best self, even when you forget who you are.
That's where I come in. I support leaders like you in making a purposeful, meaningful impact in their lives, relationships, organization, and the world.
Once upon a time, I burned down my life. On purpose.
After spending a decade in a profession and marriage that didn't actually suit me, I recognized I wasn't the same person I was ten years earlier. So I walked away from it all. I began to intentionally (though not especially gracefully) dismantle the life and career I’d carefully constructed out of “should's” and “supposed to’s,” and rebuilt the life that called to me from deep in my heart and bones.
To support me in doing this deep and purposeful work, I hired a life coach. She became one of my “pit crew of people”- Anne Lamott’s term for the people in our lives who help put us back together when the wheels fall off. My first coach supported me in beginning to create a life that aligns with my deepest desires, needs, and values. As I witnessed the power of coaching in transforming my own life, career aspirations, and relationships, I decided to enroll in an extensive life and leadership coach training in 2016. Immediately, I recognized that I was in the right place. I was (and still am!) serving my purpose in the role of Coach.
(NOT CURRENTLY PRACTICING)
I’m constantly planning my next hike, bucket list trip, or adventure.
In my free time, I'm likely snuggling with my 80 pound lap dog, or volunteering at the local equine rescue.
You’d also know that I take my coffee iced, my cocktails extra bitter (no ice), and my chocolate fair trade and as dark as it comes.
My client roster includes C-suite executives, VP's and Senior VP's, small business owners, non-profit board members, therapists and psychiatrists, creatives, founders, and other interesting people. While their roles are diverse, they all seek me out as their executive coach for similar reasons.
Maybe some of them sound like you.
Do you desire to finally take time to replenish your mind, body and spirit and practice taking excellent care of yourself?
Do you wish you could connect with an experienced, compassionate coach who “gets” you and is dedicated to supporting you in meeting your goals?
Do you recognize that true change takes commitment to yourself and your goals, rather a “quick fix?”
Do you hope to learn practical techniques to help you manage stress, relax, energize, and finally create the elusive work-life balance?
Do you crave change but aren’t quite sure where to start?
Do you suspect that there is so much more to an authentic, fulfilling life than you are currently experiencing?
Do you desire to make a more potent impact in your own life, leadership, relationships, and the world?
Do you yearn to align your life and leadership with your values and purpose?
