"Life is a daring adventure, or nothing"
I am a Certified Life Coach with a focus on Leadership, Relationships and Intentional Life Design. Before becoming a full-time coach, teacher and mentor, I spent the final 10 years of my corporate career as an executive in charge of administrative operations at a small public agency in Silicon Valley. Before that I was a human resources practitioner. And before that I was a receptionist.
I climbed the ladder from receptionist to executive through sheer grit and determination and without a college education. What I did have was an awesome coach who helped me see my blind spots, challenged my limiting beliefs and believed in me and my possibilities when I couldn't. She's the reason I have reimagined my life and become a coach myself.
After spending years coaching my staff, I decided to become "official" and in 2016 I attended the Coaches Training Institute for my formal training. I am also a Landmark graduate and alumni of ChoiceCenter Leadership University's Leadership program. I have recently completed Conscious Hiring© training through KeenAlignment as well as attending another coaching course through the Life Coach Institute.
I am a voracious learner always expanding my skills and toolbox to better serve my clients.
I practice both personal and professional coaching because everyone needs someone on their side.
What I Believe
- I believe people need real, face-to-face connection and they thrive when they are in the energy of like-minded, supportive people.
- I believe that when we take responsibility for our lives (no excuses, no whining) those are the first steps to creating a life of abundance and joy.
- I believe that with someone on your side, you can achieve anything.
- I believe you ROCK!
A little bit more about me...
My husband and I live with our three cats on a tiny farm near California's Sierra Foothills. My life is at its best when I'm hanging out with family and friends. Learning, reading, exploring in nature and art are integral parts of my life.
