My Story

Born and raised on the East Coast, I earned a degree in Cultural Anthropology and a Spanish language certificate from Princeton University. Then I entered the fast-paced world of advertising in New York City. After nearly 15 years of success in that field, I was eager for change. I found myself exploring options for a career in which I could express my deep desire to help people achieve greater satisfaction in their lives. It was also the ideal time for my own lifestyle change, and a healthier balance between work and pleasure. When the idea of becoming a coach presented itself, it immediately felt right.

Making the Transition

On a personal level, when it comes to choosing the people I want to work with or hire, education and credentials are a key consideration. Because of this, it was important to me to acquire the background — knowledge, skills, and hands-on application — that should be expected of any great coach. Thus, I trained in the Core Energy Coaching™ Process at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC), and I graduated as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) and a Master Practitioner in the Energy Leadership™ Index. In early 2015, I earned the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential from the International Coach Federation, with over 800 coaching hours accrued. My commitment to education, to the profession, to my practice, and to my clients compels me to leverage every opportunity to learn more and build upon these foundations.

Why Career Coaching?

With a background in the corporate world and personal experience in career change, career coaching as a specialty simply made sense. It is incredibly rewarding to give the kind of support and encouragement I could have used myself during years of career development, upward and lateral movement, and eventually transition. Working with clients from diverse backgrounds and in a variety of fields, I am exposed daily to the unique challenges presented by different types of work scenarios. At the same time, I see endless similarities in the challenges we all face as we aspire to grow, lead, achieve, and ultimately evolve into the very best versions of ourselves. Every client — and every single coaching session — has the potential to show me a new perspective or approach, thereby enriching every client relationship and every coaching session that follows.
