Enneagram 3, type A as they come... I live for good coffee, am always planning my next trip to Paris, and happen to believe that pop music was perfected in the 80s.
ONCE UPON A TIME
I was thoroughly burned out. I was disillusioned with the healthcare system, frustrated and limited by conventional medicine, and — as a mom of two young boys — my priorities had shifted, big-time. I longed for a career that gave me professional fulfillment and personal freedom.
People said I was crazy to walk away from medicine. Colleagues didn’t understand what I was talking about, and friends were concerned and worried for me.
I felt lost, miserable, and trapped.
Once I discovered the incredible world of health & wellness coaching, I felt like I could breathe for the first time.
I pivoted to coaching and quickly became obsessed. I learned everything I could — not just about coaching but also about business, marketing, and entrepreneurship. Then, after building a successful career for myself as a coach, I pivoted again.
I now help other women to become wellness coaches and build their businesses through my business mentorship programs.
Basically, I’m on a mission to do whatever I can to help other women pursue an amazing career where they have freedom, fulfillment, and financial independence ... all while making the world a healthier place.

An average Tuesday these days: walk my kids to school, go for a run by the ocean, settle in to my home office to do the work that absolutely lights me up.

NOW FOR THE IMPORTANT STUFF
I live for the fall. Crisp weather, football, and all that PSL? Yes please.
I love to travel, but I'm a terrible traveler. Seasick, carsick, airsick ... you name it.
I'm obsessed with making lists. And spreadsheets. And color-coded labels.
I've seen the movie Love Actually approximately 72 times. And I cry every. Single. Time.
Your at-a-glance guide to where I stand on all the truly important things.
Paris, of course!
