My work is driven by one simple thing: helping awesome people do the things they really, really want to do.
I've had a decades-long affair with big ideas. As an undergraduate at the University of California at Davis, my study abroad experiences lit a fire within me and my passion for testing my personal boundaries and leaning into adventure was born.
Post graduate work brought me to Nepal to help wildlife biologists tag and study wild civet cats, and my desire to give back fueled my desire to spend two years serving as a Peace Corp volunteer in Bulgaria.
When I returned stateside, I flung a duffle bag over my shoulder and moved solo to New York City, where I dove into teaching 8th grade Science in the Bronx withTeach for America.
I have made personal life decisions that honor authenticity, uncertainty, and the power of taking chances and have experienced first hand the growth, discovery, and pure alive-ness that results from saying yes to new ideas and embracing the unknown.
In 2012, I began to channel that love of discovery and growth into my training and work as a coach. I have studied formally and am certified under Brooke Castillo of the Life Coach School. In October, 2019, I will become a certified YouMap© coach and have been forever changed by my mentors Master Coach Joyce Campbell and Leadership Coach John Morgan. I draw powerful inspiration from the works of Michael Neill, Steve Chandler, Tara Brach, and have completed training in somatic coaching.
