I help creative moms get clarity about the next chapter of their lives.
A mom boss who is ready to take a leap into the unknown.
A mom boss who leapt and wants to hold your hand while you jump.
Do any of these sound like you?
You started a career before having kids, but stayed home to raise them. Now they’re in school and you’re ready to get back in the game - but you don’t want to go back to your old career. You want to do something you’re passionate about and something that works around your family life.
Maybe you went back to work soon after having kids and have been quite successful climbing the corporate ladder, but you’re starting to feel burned out. Your kids are older now and you’re thinking maybe it’s time to start doing something totally different.
Perhaps you never really quite figured out what you wanted to be when you grew up. You started a family and being a mom has fulfilled you in so many ways, but you’re starting to get that itch. You have more to offer the world and you’re ready to find out what that is.
What if instead you felt calm, energized, and excited about the work you do?
If you’re reading these words, then I’m guessing you’re looking for something different in your life. You want change, but you don’t know where to start. Guess what? This is a great place to start.
It took me many long, winding, difficult years to finally take the risks necessary to get the life I wanted. You don’t have to wait! You can start today. I understand how scary it can be. And I also know that it’s totally worth it.
Life is not a dress rehearsal.
We get one chance at it.
Write the script you want to live.
I grew up in Southern California in the 80’s and 90’s, perfectly contented living with landlines and video stores. I moved to the Bay Area in 2001 and met my husband in complete analog fashion in 2004. In 2009, we had our first child and in 2011 had our second child. I know the joys and struggles of being both a stay-at-home mom and a working mom.
I earned my B.A. in sociology from San Francisco State University. My coach training is through the rigorous, ontological program at the Academy for Coaching Excellence.
I'm a life-long learner interested in living a wholehearted and creative existence, committed to helping other women do the same.
My work as a coach has been informed by Brené Brown, Tristan Harris, Joseph Campbell, Sogyal Rinpoche, Anne Lamott, Jen Sincero, and countless other life teachers, filmmakers, musicians, poets, and artists.
Partnering one on one with me is a powerful, focused experience that can lead to real life transformation. If you’ve got a vision for your life that you can’t wait to bring into reality, I’m your lady.
What does a coach even do?
The International Coach Federation defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
Coaching honors the client as the expert in his/her/their life and work and believes that every client is creative, resourceful, and whole.
In other words, I help you to get out of your own way, and do it with clarity, focus, ease, and grace.
As your coach, I'll support you to:
Direct yourself toward a fulfilling, creative life
Clarify your goals
Focus your energy where it matters
Leverage your unique strengths
Take smarter, more consistent action
Master your internal stopping points
Prioritize your time
Gain tools and skills for consistently taking action on what's important to you
