MY STORY

Prior to becoming a coach, I spent 17 years in the corporate world —13 of those at Amazon where I experienced its growth from a fledgling start-up to the massive global company that it is today.  During my time there, I climbed the ladder from an individual contributor role to the executive level and was particularly known for earning trust, hiring & developing great people, and delivering results.  I learned so much during those crucial years of my career about leadership, thinking big and asking the right questions.  

As I took on bigger leadership roles and the size of my teams grew, I came to realize that I was most passionate about the development of people’s potential.  So, during my final two years at the company after more than a decade in business roles, I moved into a leadership development position.  There I had the opportunity to coach and train everyone from senior leaders to new MBAs and recent college grads.  It was through that experience that I began to feel a strong calling to move away from my corporate life and become a coach. I took a leap and said goodbye to Amazon, completed a professional coaching course and began seeing clients.  I am so grateful that I now dedicate my time solely to connecting with others while helping them find the purpose and meaning they are seeking in their own lives. Nothing brings me more joy.

I have always possessed a genuine, limitless curiosity about other people and their stories. I could listen to my clients all day long. I love asking questions that help others to connect dots and recognize patterns in their own lives that they may not otherwise see. I tend to be highly intuitive and am often told “you always know exactly the right question I needed to hear”. I find true satisfaction in helping others uncover their inner truth, define the next step on their path and then create the structure they need to achieve it.

In my work, I encourage my clients to trust and follow their curiosity because I believe it is always giving you a whisper of where you should go next. I, too, found myself following one of those whispers several years ago. At the time, I started down what was, for me, a surprising fork in the road. It began with the desire to alleviate what was quickly becoming an intolerable amount of anxiety in my life.  My therapist suggested I begin a meditation practice along with perhaps reading a Buddhist text or two.  I followed this advice which ultimately led me to a deeper understanding of mindfulness, consciousness, and how our beliefs shape our reality. This perspective runs deeply through my work with clients. I believe that every one of us is here at this particular time to find our purpose and our joy so that we may spread as much light to others as possible. The world needs that and it needs us!

I currently live in Santa Monica, CA with my husband, son and a Westie named Blake. When not working with clients, a typical day for me involves reading a good book, listening to a podcast, swimming, doing yoga or hanging at the beach with my family.

Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.
