Your best experience as a leader:
Creating a destination spa retreat for women looking to rediscover themselves. It was an arduous process but one fueled completely by love and a synthesis of my personal and professional worlds. It was a trifecta moment for me and one that continues to remind me what I’m capable of.
Why did you become a coach?
It is my personal legend; my soul purpose. Becoming a coach was like going back home to who I always was. I learned the hard way after years of professional dissatisfaction and turmoil that when it feels so easy and effortless, it’s because we are being pointed by our internal compass to our North Star. I believe in inspiring others to lead their most powerful lives.
